    Ten UKNS/Live News sales in today. 'Live News' values are a new low and barely differentiated from UKNS now. At least I didn't need to travel for most of them, such as:


    Country: Worldwide ; Usage: Editorial ;  Media: Editorial website ;  Start: 31-July-2020 ; End: 31-July-2025 ; Additional Details: One use in a single editorial article used within the digital versions of a single publication. Digital usage includes archive rights for the lifetime of the article.




    I wonder what the black  t-shirt Nike guy is doing?

    I have pictures on here shot with the RX100. If you shoot it at low ISO, or use one of the night modes (don’t remember which) for darker environments, you can be successful with it. It’s best shot in good light. I have learned to do some things with it using

    selective noise reduction.  The Fuji cameras seem to not need as much care.

    Not knowing your abilities, (are you just now getting into photography?) or whether you have good software for developing the photos, it’s hard to advise.


    Thank you, i'm intermediate to advance in photography. I use Adobe Photoshop and LightRoom.

    That is clearly going to be really tough for you and all other users of Adobe products in Venezuela, I'm in the UK but it doesn't seem to add up at all from here. I don't quite understand the references in the email about available earnings and payout minimums but I presume that is connected to any refunds that they are offering, though that is not going to be much compensation for leaving you high and dry.


    There's another article here from our Financial Times:



    I can't quite understand why when you Google this issue from here regarding the 'executive order' it only seems to be issues with Adobe that come up, are you expecting other US subscription based services to join in, perhaps software or cloud storage? The Adobe email mentions Paypal so presumably that isn't affected. Is there a feeling that maybe Adobe are interpreting  this order rather harshly?



    Sorry, meanderingemu has explained the earnings and payments references, are you an Adobe subscription software user as well, or maybe a contributor to another US based library?


    That email it is from Adobe Stock, the following image it is from Adobe.

    Yes, I understand. I visited Venezuela in 2003 when the political and economic situations were much better, but even then I didn't feel safe photographing in parts of Caracas. I also spent time in Canaima National Park and on Los Roques islands, both beautiful places. I wish I had been able to visit some other areas. It's too dangerous now, unfortunately. Ten cuidado.

    Muchas gracias!

    The latest RX100's are way out of my price range as well, especially with today's low image prices. However, I've seen some good deals on used RX100 I and II versions here in Canada and on ebay.


    I hope things are improving in Venezuela. It's a beautiful country.

    Thanks, i hope so! . It's still very expensive for my budget. I use a Canon XT or 350D, but its a little big for hide in some situations in the street. I have compact cameras such as Nikon L18 and Canon A810 in some situations are not so good. Venezuela critical situation is getting harder every day, in all ways.

    Not directly. Some zooms can be linked with a specific sale. Some sales may have arisen from a zoom but it is not clear as there may be along interval between the two. Many sales are made without the image concerned ever being zoomed at all.


    There is an indirect link in that your past zooms/sales ratio may give a rough indication of forthcoming sales. Over the years I have had a ratio of one sale for every four zooms, although that seems to have reduced substantially in recent months. Different contributors will report different ratios and yours may be different again.
