  1. Hi, I'm trying to upload images, but I cannot save images to their uncompressed state (above 17mb). I have JPEG files that are 6mb+ and when in Photoshop, they're about 45mb. But I cannot seem to save them as this uncompressed size? I have Adobe CS6 - I've seen posts about 'Save for Web' or 'legacy' but when I try this, the images only go upto 8MB. .tiff files are the correct size, but I can't upload them Please can I have some help, I'd love to upload images Cheers
  2. 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?
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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?
