  1. Thanks, it is certainly useful sometimes to be able to include longer captions.
  2. OK, thanks very much for your reply.
  3. Can someone who has used Reportage please tell me if you have to include headlines and captions in the IPTC Metadata as with Live News. I'm guessing it's the same so they can go on sale quickly, but I can't seem to find any instructions anywhere.

  5. You have some great wildlife and macro images in your collection. These can be quite hard to sell though, and I would suggest you could improve your chances by writing full captions. At the moment, you have included scientific names in the tags, but not in the captions. Captions can be very important in getting your images seen, so I would include the scientific names, and probably the location too. Good luck.
  6. My first sale of the month at last, from a trip to Puerto Rico for a work conference about 7 years ago. I stayed for a few days holiday after the meeting. The photos from this lovely day on a catamaran have licenced a few times. Mid $$ for travel guides, US.
  7. The bluebells are coming to the end down south!

  9. Wild garlic alongside a stream in Hampshire, UK.
  10. 10 sales for $212 gross. Average sale price low this month, but number of sales OK.
  11. 3 sales today - 2 for $, and this one the best at high $$. A horse chestnut tree for a marketing package - large business, worldwide.
