  1. I`m not able to get the JPG file size of 17 MB. Camera: FUJI X-T1 Original RAW - file size: 33,7 MB Exported as TIFF 300dpi - file size: 42,8 MB Save as JPG 300dpi (compression at highest Quality 100% or Level 12): 11 MB I tried both Capture One Pro and Photoshop - same results in 11 MB. So how can I export my RAW-Files to get the "minimum 17 MB" condition?
  2. I tried finding this info, but no luck. Hope someone will come along and offer their knowledge. I would like to know what size file a customer receives when they download a RF image for the option of personal use, newsletters, website, marketing etc. And also does Alamy collect payment before the download? Many thanks for your input. Sharon
  3. In another thread Julie Edwards commented "If you are using Live News, Picture desks will not be happy with files over 5MB.. Most press photographers send files in that are between (just under) 1MB and 2MB.." This is something that I give regular thought to, what is the optimum file size for live news that will also possibly later sell as stock? A friend of mine who unfortunately passed away earlier this year used work shifts for Newsquest shooting sport. I know he used to upload quite small files, far smaller files than I do, and shoot jpeg, while I shoot 14 bit RAW. He had a brief based upon how his photo's would be used, we don't know what a potential clients precise use will be. I used to upload full size jpg's. Other photographers I know, when I check their uploads, they are in the 50 - 60 MB + open files range, and a quick sample of recent live news uploads noted the smallest being 24 MB, others 34 MB - 60MB +. Moments ago I did an interesting comparison of my D750 open file sizes against the actual file sizes as below. RAW SIZE LONGEST SIDE PIXELS OPEN SIZE JPEG QUALITY JPEG FILE SIZE LONGEST SIDE PRINTED 300DPI 32.3 MB 6016 69.1 MB 12 17.5 MB 20" 32.3 MB 4000 30.6 MB 12 7.9 MB 13.3" 32.3 MB 3000 17.2 MB 12 4.7 MB 10" 32.3 MB 2850 15.5 MB 12 4.2 MB 9.5" 32.3 MB 2850 15.5 MB 10 1.6 MB 9.5" I now reduce my uploads to 4000 pixels longest side, and they upload lots faster via my phone hot spot. They also have the ability to be printed a reasonable size at 300 dpi, although overkill for the web and I guess newsprint. I maintain jpeg quality 12 as Alamy asks for “Images of the highest quality possible”. I suspect there is very little visible difference in quality between quality 10 and 12, but 10 certainly reduces the actual file size. What file sizes and jpeg quality do others uploading to live news use? Do full size jpg's have any advantage at all, as it's a common occurrence? Steve
  4. I created a high quality DNG panoramic images from about 7 vertical Raw full frame images on a D750 with a 50 mm lens. The process took about an hour to make the panoramic (and frustratingly slowed down my whole pc, including internet during the time) When I zoom into the panoramic, which was really good, the detail was exceptional. I then exported to a Jpeg at my usual 11 megapixels with "resize to fit" and "don't enlarge" checked. When I zoom into the Jpeg the quality is quite fuzzy at over 100%, nowhere near the sharpness of the DNG render. As I am new to making LR panoramics, can anyone advise how to get the best quality export from a DNG file, hopefuly keeping the same sharpness quality ? Thanks.
  5. PROCESSING ISSUES

    Newish to Alamy so needed some advice Although I joined a few years ago only posted a few photos then not used this site for a few years. I am having issues with Processing the images I download and then fill in all the relevant information on the right...after that it seems to take an age while i just see the 'processing' screen and nothing happens What am i doing wrong?
  6. Currently Alamy minimum file size requirement is 17MB JPEGs, but I was wondering what happens to photos made from lower res cameras from a few years back. About 10-15 years ago, the top of the line Nikon (The D1H, which was a 2.7MB camera) produced a 7MB JPEG file. Just wondering what happens to all those older images that fall below the current requirement? My current camera gives me a 45MB file, well over the minimum required file size but I would like to keep future images competitive and "on the market" as long as possible. Today, Nikon's D810 is a 36M camera and I believe the latest monster file Canon is a 50MB camera, but 10-15 years from now we'll probably be able to get that from our cell phone cameras. Should we shoot with the largest file sized cameras available today to increase image longevity? Thanks.
  7. Hello, Apologies, I've found similar threads to this, it seems to be a common problem but I can't find a solution to mine! I shoot in RAW on a Nikon D5100 - this gives me RAW files between 15 - 18mb. On the D5100, if you shoot in RAW, you cannot choose the "size" of the image - i've looked to increase resolution but I can't find any other settings on the camera (and I assumed RAW files between 15-18mb would be big enough) When I try process in CS5 and save as JPEG, some of the images just aren't big enough. I've tried to blow up the image and this doesn't always increase the file size sufficiently. This is when I have quality up full to 12. I usually edit them in camera RAW then go to CS5. If I open an image in CS5 without editing or resizing, the file size in the bottom left corner shows around 10 mb. Sometimes a resize will help with these pictures, but not all of them - why am I struggling so much with file size?! I've been banging my head against a brick wall for a while now, I'd really appreciate a little help, is it just something stupid I'm doing here?! Thanks, M.
  8. Hi I'm new to Alamy having sold work through exhibitions, retail outlets and print requests for a number of years. I am finally getting round to putting up a different selection of my images here, however, I have to admit I am feeling very apprehensive about submitting that first test batch of images that undergoes close scrutiny. There are two areas I am mainly concerned with: Sharpening - this seems to be quite an issue and having searched the forums here and on google there seems to be two trains of thought...a) that absolutely no sharpening is allowed by Alamy or that it is output sharpening that should be avoided and that a very small amount of sharpening is ok at the Raw file stage in ACR. I really just want to know if there is an up to date definitive answer to this one as I have always in the past applies a small amount of sharpening to my files in ACR (as well as using a tripod when capturing an image) generally using the following settings - amount 25, radius 1, detail 25, masking 0. Is this ok, does anyone have any recommendations re lower settings or is it an absolute no-no? Size - matters! I just want to clarify that I've got it right in my mind on this one. My understanding is that the uncompressed image size has to be +17mb. I found a calculation on the forums that says that if you take your 8bit, 300dpi image dimensions and multiply them together, multiply that figure by 3 and then divide by one million you get the uncompressed file size. As an example taking one of my old images taken on a 40D this would be 3888 X 2592 X 3 divided by one million = 30.23mb uncompressed file size. Am I on the right lines here or should I be upsizing the file when it is a tif? The reason I ask is because the actual 8bit, 300dpi jpeg I would upload to Alamy works out to be only 4.59mb compressed - is this ok? My cameras used are a Canon 40D, a 5D Mk 2 and now a Fuji Xpro-1. Any advice, guidance or recommendations would be really appreciated - I am a newbie so please be gentle with me Many thanks Lin
  9. As a relative newcomer I'm getting a bit confused about the file size requirements and would appreciate a bit of advice please. I know it's a requirement to submit JPEGS with an uncompressed file size of 17MB and based on that I had assumed that my old Nikon D300 images wouldn't be suitable as these tend to produce RAW images of around 9-10MB (I'm not talking not MPixels which for that camera is 12). But I notice it is on the list of recommended cameras. So as an example, I exported (from Lightroom) a D300 RAW image that was showing at 9.63MB in Lightroom and that produced a JPEG of just over 7MB (I had the LR export settings as JPEG, sRGB, file size no limit, resolution 300ppi). Oddly looking at the RAW file in Finder it was showing as 10.1MB, not 9.63MB as in Lightroom. As an experiment I exported the same RAW file to Photoshop and simply saved it with no editing whatsoever and it resulted in saved file sizes in Lightroom of 69.92MB (as both PSD and TIFF, again both were bigger in Finder?), i.e. well above the 17MB minimum. But when I exported these from Lightroom it resulted in the same JPEG file size of 7MB. So what is required - save the image as PSD or TIFF first to get about the minimum and then save the JPEG from that? Or am I missing the point? (I probably am). Haven't had this problem before as file sizes from Fuji XT1 and especially Nikon D800 seem to easily large enough by simply exporting as a JPEG from the Lightroom RAW file. So, help please. Getting totally lost with this!
