Does anybody delete some of their live news images once they are used as inevitably you get allot of similars chasing one subject.

Only very occasionally.  Old images have a habit of selling sometime down the line.  I also try hard not to take images of the same subject which are similar.

Thanks Ian

I can see your point, i did not mean all of the images just reduce them to a couple of each subject. If the subject is a car crash for instance its very easy to get carried away with different angles etc.

Once home and having more time to select which are the best images and take more time on the editing I'll often replace live images with stock. It's very easy to make incorrect choices 'in the field' so I'd rather they were not there for all time when they can be fixed

I do sometimes, especially headshots of people if I have better ones available.

I do often go back to files I sent as live news and put more effort into the processing to get better quality images for stock, if I think they are worth it - then delete the news ones.
