Is it possible to update one's keywords on an Apple mobile device like iPad or iPhone? Just tried to do it now and got an error message that Adobe Flash is required...which isn't supported by Apple :(.

Yes, you can download and use the Photon browser app (instead of Safari).  It will allow you to work with flash on iOs.

The Puffin app has worked for me on an iPad2. At first the free version was restricted to certain hours; now it works 24/7.

I suspect, based on previous threads, that Alamy are working on changes to remove the use of Adobe Flash from their website meaning that we'll be able to use an iPad with just Safari to keyword images in the future..  here's hoping anyway!

I also remember Alamy's comment that they'll stop using flash (which I'm looking forward to)

Thanks again, I used the Photon browser today. Easy interface and fast enough on my rural DSL. It doesn't seem to support Select/Copy/Paste though, and I wasn't able to drag images for batch editing. So I agree with Matt & Ann: if Alamy wants to stay competitive with other outlets they need to make things easy for their contributors as well as their clients!

I've messed around with Photogene to add metadata and upload. Is anyone still using it? I'd quite like to upload some News during a trip next week.

I've also messed with it but would like a way to upload some test images to check ftp etc.

I'm sure MS would oblige with a test, if it's possible. Or you could just upload a duplicate batch that had already passed QC.

The biggest issue I have with Photogene is that the exported files aren't large enough so can't at the moment consider sending even tests. The Tiffs come out a third of the size as via Photoshop and all the jpegs come out at 72dpi, even though I've selected Max resolution of 300. :(

 

But at least I can now upload - not via Photogene, but using FTP Client Pro (£2.99 version which stores your ftp settings).

 

Rgds,

Richard.
