New Sites - General / AreaImage
« on: September 16, 2006, 06:07 »
For those uploading or have photos at AreaImage, I guess the site just bit the dust. I saw this a while ago when I visited the site.



Hi All,

Unfortunately this afternoon, at 17:00 BST 15th September we experienced critical server failures at our ISP's end, resulting in large data loss affecting all images online

Unfortunately this will effectively halt Areaimage for an indefinite amount of time, meaning no further images will be uploaded or downloaded.

All of our members are entitled to a full refund for all money deposited to Areaimage, also so are members with account balances over $35 at the time of the failure.

We are currently working on a solution to provide these refunds, please check back on the 22nd September for details regarding this.

Thank you all for your custom
The Areaimage Team

LuckyOliver.com / LO FTP Disk Full Error

LuckyOliver.com / LO IPTC Problem Solved
« on: September 05, 2006, 20:55 »
For those uploading to LO, they say the IPTC keyword import problem has been solved. Haven't tested it though..

Here's the announcement:

A few of you have had problems having your IPTC data read. This is because a few popular programs for adding keywords to images actually don't conform properly to the IPTC standard. However, we've heeded your call, and those images should now have their IPTC data read properly. You can just delete any uploaded photos which didn't have their data read and upload them again if you want. Let me know if you're still having problems.

I've been working on a big new feature which is nearly done, and otherwise been up to some maintenance stuff lately. We've had so many images coming in we're running short of space sooner than we thought, so soon we'll be upgrading our storage capabilities. Various little bugs have been fixed thanks to reports from our olivers; we listen to your emails! Site performance has never been better, and every single image should have been resized by now, so no more delays when trying to buy. Expect some cool new stuff this week; things they are a-changin'.

New Sites - General / Soupmeister.co.uk

Found this new site from another forum:


Browsed through the site. Here are some things I noticed:

1. Site supposedly started February 2, 2005. For a site which is more than 1 year old, it's forum is sure like a ghost town. (Although there is a section in it's news that the board itself was started only August 7, I'm not sure on the veracity of this claim.
2. There are only 15 photographers on the site. Again, for a site more than 1 year old, this is very peculiar.
3. It uses a site template similar to USPhotoStock. Not sure what is it with this template and fly-by-night agencies...
4. The news section containing news from Feb 2005 to present seems to look like its just been put there in one night.
5. Site owner is honest enough to say that it is being run as a hobby.

Lastly, with the above points, I didn't bother to read their contracts. Maybe somebody else will...

General Stock Discussion / How do you define identifiable???
« on: July 29, 2006, 23:04 »
Do we normally need a model release for a person who is photographed side viewed? Or if only the nose up is included? Does this constitute "identifiable"??
