Alamy Live News caption format

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

This is academic for me now but just in case I'm ever allowed back into the Hallowed Circle of Live News I noticed that on my last submission the caption ended like this:

 

Harry Harrison/Alamy live News Credit: Harry Harrison/Alamy Live News

 

Now I thought I'd followed the instructions correctly regarding the credit (apart from the lower case 'l') so I was surprised to see this doubling up, the last part added by Alamy. Why did this happen, has something changed or did I miss something out? I've even seen it on one of RedSnapper's current submissions and he certainly knows what he's doing.

Earlier they sometimes added it if you hadn't done it yourself. It now seems to be added automatically. Cannot think of any other explanation.

Thanks, it was added to all 5 of mine but I think to only one of the km images, strange. If they are going to add it automatically then it makes sense not to have it twice. Still, no longer of vital importance to me!

Same thing added to my pictures. I was also adding a © as per an old e-mail from live news, which I see no one else did.

That hasn't happened on any of mine uploaded over the weekend.

Thanks, seems to be isolated, erratic even.

I've never seen the credit duplicated before. Also checked my last submissions, three on March 30th, never realised they would be my last with Alamy.
