Summer exhibition 2016 in Bradford City centre

Mick Flynn on the BIG Screen

My summer exhibition is in the UK this year comprising two three minute slideshows which will run every day until August on the Big Screen in Bradford city centre, my hometown.

The subject is a small selection of my contemporary high contrast urban/industrial black and white shots from my Monochrome Mill Town collection.

Many thanks to Julie and Jo at Bradford UNESCO City of Film for putting this together.

Image sizes for Alamy stock photographs

Almost every week there seems to be a post in the Alamy Forum in which a new contributor is struggling to understand the Alamy submission requirements for file size. The website info is quite clear... Q. What file size do I need to upload? A. We need a JPEG file size of over 17MB when uncompressed (this is likely to have a compressed JPEG size of 3-5MB). Opening a JPEG in an image program such as Adobe Photoshop will show you the uncompressed (open) file size. This still doesn't seem to answer the questions which are posted in the forum, so the best solution is to always use this small standalone App from  Braeside Communication Services. As you can see, it shows the compressed size and also the uncompressed size. It will show a warning if the file size falls below the threshold. The two files shown in the image above are fine to upload to Alamy. Download here...  AlamySizeCheck A donation to  David Anderson  would be nice.

Timelapse of the MSC Kwangyang

Timelapse of the MSC Kwangyang MSC Kwangyang? Yes, it just happened to pass by on the horizon line at the end as I was shooting another timelapse, this time with my Canon 6d DSLR. I was hoping that the clouds would change into a storm front and become more dramatic, so I chose that particular view with Peacock Island near the horizon line, and, nothing much happened! For this timelapse, I took 940 images in RAW with 5 seconds between each one using a 75-300 EF lens and the Magic Lantern Intervalometer which is loaded on startup from the SD card. It was mid-afternoon so there isn't a problem with big changes in exposure, allowing me to use ISO 100 for quality with an f-stop of 6.3 which is about the sweet spot for this particular lens, and a fast shutter of 1000th of a second as it was on a tall tripod at full zoom in a breeze. These RAW files are imported into Lightroom with my user preset which has a couple of small tweaks to correct the very bad CA and fringing I g

Staying legal with photos posted on your own internet posts.

You've written a fantastic post about your visit to France and just need a couple of pictures to help pad it out and be more interesting, after all, 'a picture is worth a thousand words', so do you just grab one from a Google search? This 800 pixel image of Chateau Chenonceau is big enough for social media and blog posts and is only 176kb so it loads fast for your viewers. Yes you can... but be prepared for the owner to come after you for infringing their copyright after they find it being used without permission on your internet platforms. The best way to obtain pictures to use within your own web content, be that on Facebook, Blogs or any other internet platform (within reason), is to buy a licence which will cover you for the use. I allow my own images to be downloaded for such uses in two sizes on my website here...  mickflynnimages . They are all provided instantly, do not contain a watermark and are ideal to illustrate your stories and articles. News
