Microstock Services / Re: BS and PSM !?

Istock too!

DeepMeta . . . the one and only tool for uploading to IS.

As for the rest of them, PSM seems to work well for me, with the exception of SS and BS.

Probably been said before . . . but if a website has to instruct, show, direct users to "How-to" screenshots, etc . . . that's an epic fail.

[ x ]  all websites should be easy to use

Likewise, he banned you - and the others, because he was told to do it.
Lobo is the guy who gets told. Ordered around, a peon.


I'm quite sure no one told him to ban me. He pretty much told me via sitemail that he does not like me. Such a nice thing to say to someone who frequents your business as a purchaser.

Caspixel . . . you've been banned? I'm shocked . . . :(

Oh how the winds of change have increased.

In FIFA website, they say "Brazil put Elephants in the shade".  Is "Elephants in the shade" some expression, or is the Ivory Coast team nicknamed "Elephant"?


Yes, the nickname of the Ivory Coast national team is "Les Elephants" . . .

Off Topic / Re: Editorial Photo Cropping - Reuters again?
« on: June 17, 2010, 12:44 »
A photo is a very small moment in time . . . there's a lot of context and sub-context we, as viewers, can't assume from looking at an image.

Looking at the images in questions, I am careful not to assume too much.

For instance, where did the knife come from? Who's knife is it? Where was that knife 30 seconds prior to the image being capture? What about 5 minutes prior to the image being captured?

Right away, I can think of at least two possible, logical explanations for someone to be holding a knife in that particular scenario depicted in the images.

One involves having the knife and using it in an aggressive manner . . . that other involves recovering the knife and just holding it. Do we REALLY know what happened? No. I would like to read the original cutline that accompanied the image from the photographer.

We all must be careful to jump to conclusions . . . . editing an image happens the moment a photographer picks a camera and lens, and continues to happen on its route to the viewer. Unbiased news reporting is a fallacy. As a news reader, I must be aware of where my news comes from, because EVERY news provider has its own bias.

I admit I know nothing of Reuters past history, or of their current agenda. One could replace Reuters with any news agency in this situation.

Once again, can't connect via FTP.

Something about an FTP error occurred; cannot make connection to host.

On one day, off another.  ???

123RF / Re: Slow approvals this week?
« on: May 02, 2010, 13:33 »
It has been like that for last 2 months :-)

Is there a reason for this?

As a newcomer to 123, this lag in approving images sure doesn't foster confidence in the site.

Perhaps a word from those in the know would be wise.

Thanks.

Just logged in to check pending files.  Really slow reviews.  Files pending since the 9th.  ???

Yup, log-in works now . . .

123RF / Re: Choosing watermark position
« on: April 12, 2010, 22:21 »
It's a great idea . . . especially since the watermark is so small to start with.

A larger watermark would be nice.
