  1. Thanks Simon - yes, got lucky with the clouds this time - I've tried the local wind farm several times before, but on most other attempts there's been clouds around that part of the horizon!

  4. I had that problem a few years ago when trying to upload images from an Olympus E-PL1 and E-PL3 (my E-5 uploaded fine). A workaround I found was to load the same image into Photoshop and re-save it, then it would upload correctly - but it was a bit of a pain - so I contacted Contributor Relations who passed it onto their IT team. They came back saying they were aware of the issue, but not to worry as it would have the correct orientation once the upload was finished. You could try one and see what happens, or contact CR with your camera make & model, who will feed the issue back to their IT department.

  6. Live news pics often sell later as stock, and once in the stock library provide a useful archive - for when a news picture is required again at a future date - as is often the case with news stories when they get revisited/or there is an update months or even years later. Whilst, in theory you could have a separate news archive, that would mean in practice having to maintain two systems/templates/websites etc. It's also probably better from the customer point of view if when searching they can just see everything that's available (if they wish), rather than having to search two sites or integrate two systems.
  7. Deeply sad and unexpected news. It was one of those unreal moments when I first saw a tweet that he had been reported missing, but hoping for the best. Like most I didn't know Keith, but was inspired to choose Alamy from his profile. I often found myself uploading sunsets - due to the slight time difference in location just before him - only to be blown away by the ones he would upload soon afterwards. RIP KM.

  15. Unfortunately, black and white images are not allowed for live news images, I had a couple removed when I tried it last year, and received an email to the same effect.
