Gary Clarke Posted May 22, 2017 Share Posted May 22, 2017 Over the last few months I've started submitting News images - mainly weather and a few 'events' - with a little bit of success here and there. A couple of things I'm not sure about if someone could help please? I've checked the Alamy advice pages and forum but can't find the answers so if I've missed them I apologise! I believe the images stay on the News feed for 48-hours and after that they are moved into 'normal' stock. At that point I've been adding keywords - I think that's when we're supposed to do it or can it be done sooner? But what about captioning (which is the News caption as originally input) - should I amend that to delete the news references and maybe mention in Additional Info that it was originally a news image OR just leave it as it is (afterall it's fairly descriptive). One other point - can anyone recommend a decent method (App?) that allows you to enter the IPTC keyword / caption fields whilst using an iPhone. I can wifi images from cameras to phone whilst out in the field and edit them in Lightroom Mobile so I could upload from there for speed if only I could get the IPTC details entered on the phone. Am I missing something obvious there? At the moment I have to wait until I get home to upload via a MacBook or iMac. The weather images tend to be in some remote areas (e.g. on the North York Moors but with mobile coverage in some areas) so by the time I drive home etc I've lost valuable time.
