  1. I've uploaded a few Live News pictures now and they usually end up in my library on sale but with the original News caption e.g UK Weather. Rainy Day in etc. I'm never sure whether it is worth updating these captions once they are my library so that the caption less about the weather on a particular day. Just curious to find out what other people do? Is it with the effort to amend them?
  2. I occasionally upload a news image taken on my iPhone via Stockimo. Last week, for the first time ever, I uploaded a couple of 'UK Weather' related images taken on my DSLR. It took me a few attempts to get the IPTC fields right and I had to email the Alamy News team on a couple of occasions to get them to fix images on the Live News Feed where I had got the captions wrong (missing). This was mainly down to the fact that I struggled a bit to firstly find the right fields in Lightroom and then having added and IPTC caption and headline, I missed the fact that you actually had to to choose
  3. If you’re a seasoned photo-journalist or someone just starting on the journey to being a news photographer, here are 7 tips to help you produce the most newsworthy material. Read more...
  4. If I have uploaded colour pix to Alamy, and these are not available anywhere else as microstock, in fact I have uploaded them as news pix (because they are), am I ok with allowing a third party (a PR agency) to download them? I said to them initially no, but thought that perhaps monochrome versions of the same images would be ok? but haven't moved on this yet as I am uncertain and don't want to jeopardise my relationship with Alamy….such as it is. Cheers
  5. Please feel free to share any sort of happy news* about Alamy forum members here, as time goes on.... (*about family milestone, photography of fellow member or yourself....) I'll start off it off by congratulating Ed Endicott for having his photo appear in Photoshelter's Weekend Inspiration SELECTS #20. When I received Photoshelter's Selects email today, I immediately recognized Ed's photo as the one he posted last month in the "Your favorite images you have uploaded to Alamy this month" thread created by winstainforth. smiles - Ann
  6. We all obsess about our AlamyRank and how many views/zooms we get (some of us like myself check daily). Looking back through my licensed image history, it appears that the majority of the images I've licensed that were used in newspapers (or where the sales revenue amount is indicative of the newspaper scheme prices) were not recorded as a zoom. We know that not all of Alamy's customers have accounts that register as a zoom. We also know that sales improve rank greater than zooms.....but initially, do those who supply "creative images" (images created with a slant toward the commerci
  7. A question, especially for those of you who contribute News regularly. Do you see sales through the News channel or does it tend to come later when those news images have moved into the Stock collection? Anyone making consistent news sales? I appreciate that sales may take many weeks to report so it may be difficult to tell except by the licence date and even then it may be a sale from the News Feed as the client will have it on their system, especially newspapers. I realise that everyone is different but I am starting to conscientously monitor my activity to geta sense of what part of
  8. Does Alamy provide media accreditation for news photographers? I currently work for a competitor of Alamy, but am not happy with their service as they just ignore my emails and do not bother chasing up unpaid usage by the Daily Mail and Guardian. I want to move across to Alamy, but will need to be able to gain access to events. Often this requires a media accreditation letter.
  9. Sorry if i've missed this elsewhere, but I've had an education image used by the Guardian in November. It's popped up again in another different education story again on the Guardian last week - Am I right to assume this is a separate sale as it's a rights managed image?
  10. I like uploading to the news feed. I'm somewhat addicted to searching out danger in some way. I see bad weather I want to go to it (Not just bad weather right enough). However, I'm not as good as the epic guys and gals risking their lives to get great shots. One thing of late has been bugging me about the whole process. You upload the pics They sit on the site You periodically check on the usage They pass by and go into the stock pile You like your wounds and demand better of yourself next time Surely in this age of rapid communication, can we not expect that if an image or two is
  11. If I was anywhere near Glasgow next week, I'd definitely apply for accreditation to the UK Space Conference - if only to get some grin and grabs and heads of Tim Peake, our first Astronaut to the ISS - but much more besides. Space sales are guaranteed, Jim. Rgds, Richard.
  12. Does this bother others as much as it bothers me?! This guy has, in part, ruduced the global value of stock photography while he becomes a billionaire at our expense. http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-06-28/shutterstock-creates-first-silicon-alley-billionaire.html
