  1. Hi, not sure if this is an issue with the website per se, but I noticed that if I enter my keywords with spaces using the IPTC keyword field they get cut off after a certain number of characters. If I use commas to delineate each word or phrase, all keywords are kept and all is fine. I use FileZilla or the FTP utility in ACDSee Pro 3 and the result is the same on the Shutterstock site. Can this be fixed or worked around so that characters are not cut off like this?? It would be much appreciated and save myself-and probably others-lots of time and frustration having to re-enter or cut and paste keywords after uploading. Thanks for the time and attention.
  2. You are not alone...I've been using PSP since shareware version 3.0. I now use v 12. It works, it's cheap, it,s fantastic! great additon to my workflow and does about 90% of the things photoshop does at 1/6 the price. Welcome fellow PSP user!

  4. looks like she doesn't have a pore or blemish on her body...I'd say overuse of noise reduction software.
  5. I'd have to say this one...I'm a sucker for wildlife photography. Great job--he's soooo cuuuuttteeeee...
  6. Sorry, I meant Sigma, great lens though. I don't have any experience with the Minolta prime, so can't say if it's as good. However, you may want to go over to dyxum.com to check out the lens reviews there.
  7. Dear Sony Comrade, Just wondering if you checked your lens for fungus? That might be causing your fuzzies with tripod. If you shoot lots of wildlife, I recommend and own a minolta 400mm 5.6 APO autofocus, (got mine on ebay for under $200 a year ago). Fantastically sharp when stopped down to f8 or more. You could also try to find a good copy of the beercan (Minolta 70-210 f4)-gives a 315mm when sensor multiplier is considered. Was going for under $300 on ebay a few months ago. Third idea-- Tamron 70-200mm f2.8. Just came out, I think, and sells for $699. Check reviews for this one.

  13. How did you find out? Did you find it out by chance? Or did the publisher contact you? Every now and then I simply Google my name and the index for his book came up. Didn't really think it was me all this time (book was published in 2007) and finally gathered enough courage to email the author, who described the photo and was nice enough send me a copy.
