  1. TAKING this photo in US against law

    That's good, less competition
  2. Auto White Balance

    It's going to depend to an extent on the colour content of the scene. I believe cameras use some form of 'integration to grey' then neutralise that. So if your scene has a bias towards one colour the system is going to try to compensate - the temperature of the light falling on it becomes secondary. So grey card and set your balance either then or at the processing stage.
  3. Replacing images

    AFAIK the swap takes place after QC. Reasonable as you could introduce artefacts during the reprocessing
  4. Digital Cyanotypes

    Cheers - sorted
  5. Digital Cyanotypes

    LR and PS presets are a very time efficient way of creating cyanotypes, instagram, variations etc for images that you think would be more commercial for such treatments. Make your standard user preset to get you close then tweak the individual image. This is a tweaked from a preset I have created in LR
  6. In A Panic

    Pleased you resolved your problem but such issues come under the heading of 'fair warning'. You have to have a regular (daily, every few days, whatever suits your activity level) back up routine. Anything you haven't backed up you must consider to be work you're happy to lose. The old adage is if it doesn't exist in three places it doesn't exist. So that's your working drive, your backup drive of your working drive and your backup of your backup drive which really should be in a different building. So thank the gods of the dreaded seagate tick that all this caused is a few more worry lines.
  7. Looking better now Wim so hopefully an improvement - ignoring the many near identical similars on P1
  8. Am I on the right track?

    I'd also be careful on onward supposition keywording as in EJT01X ... and then baking for a Christmas or roast dinner. KY- baking, british, christmas, christmas dinner, cookery, cooking, cuisine, english, food, glass bowl, herbs, mix, mixing, ready, roast, roast dinner, stirring, stuffing, uk, water,wooden spoon It's stuffing in a bowl, there is no sign of christmas, roast dinner, water. It may have herbs in it but I can't see them just as it's probably got breadcrumbs, salt, pepper, etc. I would even question stirring as I can see no action either by mechanical or human means. Those doing a one word search for christmas or roast dinner are unlikely to be looking for this. The photo is of ready mix stuffing made up in a in glass bowl with wooden spoon. So I would be looking at things like 'ready mix, instant, preparation, food, just add water, etc.
  9. Supplying photo by direct download (UK)

    Autodownload can be got around but I'm not sure what they mean by 'Link to online content or download sent by manual e-mail' If you sell an image manually so to speak but deliver by dropbox it seems to be still covered.
  10. I'm guessing a few people on this forum have the likes of a photoshelter / photodeck account to also supply images worldwide including EU states by direct download. I'm also guessing that most of those will not be registered for VAT as being under the theashold. How many have seen the poorly publicised requirement that as of 1 Jan 2015 they will need to obtain a VAT number and charge VAT at the prevailing recipient rate for EU countries regardless of their turnover and as they have to keep records to also register under the Data Protection Act Details Here Oh Joy
  11. Alamy images now gone from Google.

    Yes but you have included the word Alamy in the google search. The point Wim was making was that the images don't show without including 'alamy' in the search - that is as though you were looking for an image NOT solely an Alamy image
  12. Set manual exposure Is that aperture your optimum for that lens minimum 20% overlap Side lighting might be better Use as many as you need to get the effect and file size - you can stitch vertical as well as horizontal in PS Depends on how wide your aspect ratio or
  13. Phone Fixation or ACS for a quote...then compare. +1 New shutter on my 5d2 at Fixation was just under £300 Shutter problem showed Error 30 which you're not reporting so possibly not that
  14. More changes in the zooms..

    I think the point is that if you zoom an image the other images shown are by that photographer with the same keywords that you searched. Positive addition as if you like the style of the photographer it will show other alternatives. All the photos that match your search criteria by all photographers are shown on the first search page.
  15. QC failures

    That's not what QC do. They are spot checking that you've checked everything submitted. The failure is when they find you haven't.
