Hello folks, Been on the forum a couple of years, but haven't posted since my first few months, as I recall. Do you think I've made a mistake in formatting of the several hundred record album cover images I've uploaded--in putting them on a white (or in the case of white covers, black) backgrounds? It seemed a good idea when I started the project and haven't thought much about it since--but now I'm wondering if it will harm sales. Seems like a dumb idea to me now. Also, will Alamy object if I now upload the same images without the backgrounds? Since I already have those files, would take little work to do so. Thanks for your opinions and advice, Michael
Hi, With ref to alamy's requirements re the black and white points of an image. I have just recently invested in a photography table with a permanent white vinyl cover, (plus a black vinyl overlay). Experimenting, it does seem desirable to deliberately introduce some subtle shadows. However for the rest of the background, it seems to be impossible to obtain both a full pure white background and a black right hand triangle. Has anyone ever got a submission with a white background through QC with a white highlights triangle and highlight peaks through the roof? It seems best to ask the knowledgeable people on here rather than risk losing the three stars by adopting a suck it and see what happens approach.
