probably, but another thread suggested a possibility to me. If one were at say, an olde worldly heritage type event, should Live News images always be in colour? Of course B&W can be a post processing transformation strictly speaking not allowed, but it could also be something done in camera. I am anticipating that the answer is that they should always be in colour.

I'd say always in colour - the purchaser can change to B&W if it so wishes.

They shouldn't be altered in any way. Corrected for exposure etc, but not changed from what would be seen as a factual image.

Unfortunately, black and white images are not allowed for live news images, I had a couple removed when I tried it last year, and received an email to the same effect.

I think B&W would be acceptable. Many old news images were B&W only and nothing in the image is being edited to change content. It would be unusual though.

Hello Sally, interesting question. I would have to agree with Coliblimp that the purchaser if needed could change it to B&W.

I personally always use colour, very rarely have I seen B&W in present News Reportage.

Cheers

Should be in colour. You can always turn it into black & white for stock later.

Ok, thanks. I knew it was a daft question.
