If you want an insight of how it looks on the other side of Live News , have a read of this article on how the Guardian picture editor works https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2018/may/26/our-human-response-is-vital-snapshot-of-life-as-a-picture-editor "Pictures are pinged in from all over the world, some just seconds after being taken. They are provided by the global news agencies we subscribe to, local agencies, individual freelances and our own commissioned photographers. The speed between the shutter being pressed on the camera and the image being published online can be startling: I used to take a deep breath when an editor asked for a picture they had just seen on a TV news bulletin, expecting to get it immediately, but in this digital world that’s almost a reality." km
Hi I put two groups of photos up for live news yesterday carefully IPTC tagged with city (town), country etc. I did two groups because the location info and themes were different. Live news published them initually in the two groups then later merged them to one group. At the same time the tagging got altered so that the town names aren’t shown only the county. The single heading for the merged groups no longer makes sense because it says ‘xxx at Suffolk” rather than “xxx at Felixstowe, Suffolk”. Live news have emailed me in the past when I failed to include a town name, now they’ve removed the town name. Anyone understand what’s going on? Different Alamy people with different views about how live news photos should be presented?
Just out of curiosity, if an image is sold from a recent LiveNews upload batch, does it show up immediately in our "sold images" list or does it take some days/weeks? Regards Daniel Kaesler
