Site feature I never found until now:

posted on 10th of october, 2010

Call me stupid (well actually I'd rather you didn't) but after over a year on Dreamstime I have only just discovered a feature which will make my submission process easier and keep my blood pressure down.

My problem has always been the "Auto Continue" feature. I like to select the next image to work on myself but AC just brings up the oldest image from the Unfinished Images pool. You can disable this but it works so fast that I usually cannot click it in time.

The answer (for anyone that doesn't already know) lies on your management page under the "site features" section. There is a box called "edit re-direct time" with (in my case) a default time of 5 seconds. Just delete this and type in a longer time of your choice. I can now disable AC without knocking my coffee flying in the dash.

I hope...

Hastings pier destroyed (A landmark lost?)

posted on 27th of october, 2010

October saw a sad event in Hastings when the Victorian pier was largely destroyed by fire in the early hours of the 5th. Opened in 1872 it was designed and built by Eugenius Birch who was also responsible for a number of other piers including the west Pier in Brighton (also destroyed by fire a few years back). It had been closed for several years due to safety concerns but, nethertheless, continued to be an elegant landmark on the coastline here.

Since moving to Hastings last year I have taken countless images of the pier throughout the seasons -including a whole series taken underneath, showing the metal sub-structure (ignoring the warning signs that it wasn't safe to walk under it). I missed photographing the main blaze itself but was able to get down there in the afternoon when it was still smouldering...

It is tragic when such historic landmarks are lost and I wish the town of Hastings luck in their campaign efforts to have the pier restored. Nice images David.

Thanks for all your kind comments. We are all a bit stunned here at the moment. Regards, David.

I have a large archive of celebrity photographs (especially politicians) from late 1980's to the 1990's. Mainly British subjects such as Margaret Thatcher but with some international figures such as Boris Yeltsin and Lech Walesa. More recent images include travel images of Croatia and several Greek islands such as Agistri, Paxos, Halki, Symi, Meganissi, Nisyros, Alonissos, Skiathos and Skopelos.I also have images of British events including the famous Jack In The Green festival in Hastings and the Eastbourne airshow.
