hate you for spoiling my day. I usally don't complain for rejections, but today you really got on my nerves. Rejected three files in a row, first you wanted a property release for a source file, while I never have being asked for any and it was enough just to submit a reference image in the past (always mine and these time even the ones I have in my portfolio as best sellers). Then the keywords, for example illustration seemed to be off in the image that is illustration, background was off as well while your freaking keyword system that doesn't even work in Opera, parted my blank background keyword. Why don't you just forbid everybody who uses different resolution of the screen, as you want your site to be displayed, view your site at all? Did you get your heads so deep into your butts that you can't see the daylight anymore. I really hope that the person that systematically made me mad tonight have somebody get on his/her nerves good really soon. And gosh your tedious submitting process is not making anything better, just wasting yours and most of all my time.

how it's even possible that something like this gets through review? howcome a person with acces to Internet and somekind of IT skills can be so separated from outside world, like for example not recognizing famous cartoons characters. And you can't blame on geography. I'm from Europe as well and I own  panties with Emily's cat on myself. Never hold a newspaper with Peanuts strip in my hands and still recognize it. Where do they get such people for reviewers?

Hi,

I was wondering, before you calibrated your screen for the first time with the spyder colorpro... what color temperature did you set your screen on... 6500 or 9300 ...?..

A friend swears with 9300, i prefer 6500....

Patrick H.
I measure ambiental conditions and usually it's daylight bounced form neutral (beige) wall, and that's about 6500 or so

Software - General / Re: Kim Keywording
« on: August 28, 2008, 12:06 »
I found this morning a press release for the software "Kim Keywording"

Press Release: http://photoinfos.blogspot.com/2008/08/kursiv-releases-keywording-software.html
Website: http://www.kursiv.com/index.cfm?/softwarehome_en&shid=6

I have not heard of this software before. Do you know it? Do you use or like it?


they talk about 10 languages, but which are the languages?

34
I use generic

35
I live form microstock (plus some assigments) but then again I live with my husband and it helps a lot when you can split the expenses. It's not cheap to live in Finland either.

« on: August 25, 2008, 15:04 »
I have to agree with whitechild on this one. I think Kodak digital gem is the one piece I've been missing and for the price of $99 I think it is well worth it.

Thanks for your help!!!!!

You can do so much with photoshop, I strongly advise you first to learn to use it well before paying crazy money. I got once to postproccess over 100 selected high fashion shots with just photoshop on magazine quality level in 8 hrs for an advertizing photography studio. It's like Microsoft Word, people tend to use just 10% of the software.

Nik Color Effex pro 3.0 is a pretty cool software. It is available as a plugin for Photoshop. Apart from usage for portraits you can use it for many different things. The following image was a very boring normal image of wheat.
After Nik effex it looks like this: http://stockxpert.com/browse.phtml?f=view&id=17383431
And that was even accepted by iStock.
You can get a 15 day trial version.

The drawback is the price, 300 Euro in Germany.


wow, 300 euro is a rip off for the effects that you can make in photoshop already :(

I had several files rejected for keywords and when asked for second opinion from scout they were accepted after all. It depends a lot on reviewers' linguistic point of view

Unrelated, but I have just seen several of your self-portraits showcased in a UK monthly photo magazine. All legitimate, but they may confuse some of the culprits ‘clients’

you mean that they will go get images straight from my site? well that's the risk of having images on internet I guess.

ok, finnish evening and british evening are over now for already more than 10 hrs, my mug is still there! I really don't want to belive that that person lied to me


Unfortunately your photo is still sitting on the server. All this neanderthal did was delete the index.html page after you lot nuked him with emails.

Talk about solidarity with one of our own at its best.



Anywhooo, I've gone one further than that, I've got a UK journalist picking up on this story and if the little creep is passing off stuff as his own down the local market, she'll find him.

Right now this thieving little wretch is about as comfortable as a lame Turkey sat on a packet of paxo listening to Christmas carols.

sweet.
Now I wonder why he used exactly that image to represent his photographer's skills, the lighting isn't a brainer, the composition is simple, it's a good concept shot but even I don't show it in my portfolio. I shot it with a ceiling bouced flash.

ok got a reply, taht teh images will be removed this evening,

my answer:
great to hear, you should really get busy shooting your own stuff. I can't afford to shoot 8 hrs a day and have work for others, but I  still manage to have my own portfolio.
best wishes,
Vika

about french newspaper, I posted a following coment:" hey, I can offer you my lettuce picture watermark free for a very low fee! don’t hesitate to ask.
kind regards, the photographer"

I mailed him the following
"hey,
I'm the model from one of the pictures on your site (http://www.photoarte.co.uk/site_images/art.jpg ), I haven't being paid  yet for my modelling services and I was wondering if I can send the billing to the photographer's address stated on your site.
thank you very much in advanced, hoping to hear from you soon,
regards,
Victoria "
