  • GT_Aviation - Editing/Upload Advice

    Hello, I was wondering what this means because it says 'invalid-hot'. I was wondering if there was a way to reduce this. I am using lighroom, not the classic version. Also, it says I cannot post until a certain date. Can someone explain that? Thank you

    HOT means that photographed airplane (registration) is new to the database or there is significant change in livery of airplane reg already existing in db. Software you use has nothing to do here.
    Regarding upload limits - you probably exceeded certain number of rejections and your slots are occupied by them. Rejected photos are gone in 14 days from screening.

        From the upload guideline...
        https://forums.jetphotos.com/forum/a...S-New-version=

        2.5 Hot Photo


        The following will be accepted as hot for 48 hours after the first photo got accepted:


        1. New aircraft type produced by a manufacturer. (including subtypes)
        2. New aircraft type / subtype for an airline or air force. (including roll-outs or test flights at the factory)
        3. First appearance of a new airline colour scheme. (incl. for all subtypes)
        4. First appearance of a special scheme for an airline or air force. Air force special scheme must be at least a full tail marking or similar size on the fuselage. (also for subtypes). Airline special scheme includes all alliance schemes such as Star Alliance, One World etc.
        5. Other Newsworthy events at the discretion of the screening team. (typical hand over ceremonies, promotion tours by new airliner types,..)
        6. photos of airliners with a registration not in the database will count as hot. (the 48h hours guideline will not apply to those)
        7. Please note that new routes are not considered as hot.




        Hot photos for which the 48 hour guideline does not apply


        In order to improve the cooperation with FlightRadar24 and have the most up to date photo available for the FlightRadar24 site the following will be accepted as hot for the first photo accepted only.


        1. A new delivery of an aircraft type that already exists in the fleet.
        2. An existing aircraft in the fleet that is repainted in a new colour scheme.
        3. Any change to the colour scheme (for example: removal of a special scheme, new stickers) or to the aircraft itself (Winglets, Sharklets) - Note that this is only valid for active aircraft
        4. Photo of an airliner with a registration not in the database or re-use of a registration for a new airframe


        Remember, these are hot only for the first accepted image.

          Some tips to not trigger a hot photo and a unnecessary rejection:

          When uploading, unless the photo meets the hot criteria which Alex posted above, make sure you DON'T enter any text into the hot photo box. If you do, just even a "???" will trigger the photo for priority screening and will gain you a rejection and use up all your upload slots.

          Also make sure you enter the registration in the correct format, as again if the system thinks it's a new registration it will trigger priority screening and you will get a bad info and invalid hot rejection.

              No chance unfortunately...
              It's very noisy, soft, not cropped properly and it's backlit.

                Okay, is there any point to try to edit this photo, or should I try to pick another one?

                  If the photo was only noisy,soft, and not cropped properly there would be a chance that it could be fixed. But because it’s backlit there’s nothing you can do. So yes, try to pick another.

                      Hello,

                      I´m not a screener, but I´m sorry to tell you two rejection reasons which are obvious for the shown photographs:
                      • heat distortion, more pronounced in the first picture of the Emirates 777, and unfortunately unfixable. If you look at the high building in the background which does not show that strong heat haze, and the APU exhaust at the lower left, I guess this was caused by the hot exhaust fumes, so by chosing a location without that problem you can fix it in the future. In the second image, the heat distortion is less pronounced, so you could try to „hide“ it by uploading in smallest possible resolution where it might not be noticeable.
                      • Centering. Both airframes are too low in the image, the main fuselage should have the same distance to top and bottom in the given case.
                      Additionally, the first picture would be regarded as bad cropping, the stabilizer on the right shouldn´t be cropped partially off which is also a rejection reason. Make sure the entire aircraft is in the picture for this perspective.

                      Best,

                      Chris

                          Unfortunately both of these photos cannot be uploaded due to heat haze. Sadly there is no way to fix it.

                            It's all been covered really, but to confirm, the biggest killer in both shots is the heat haze/distortion. Even all the other editing on the planet wont fix that one unfortunately. Also you need to include the whole aircraft in the frame and not cut wing tips off like in the EK shot.
                            It's a shame about the heat distortion as the light is really nice, although more contrast is needed.
