New Photo Editor: Bill King
Diana Krall by Bill King
Photojournalist, musician and publisher Bill King has joined All About Jazz as the Photo Gallery Editor. Many of you may be familiar with Bill and his work and we're thrilled to have him onboard. Our goal is to continually improve the gallery so it serves professional photographers, and since Bill joined us last week, we've made great progress.
Adds Bill, "We will build an easy to use and accessible gallery that is updated daily by professional photographers from across the globe. As a collective we can become the Magnum Agency for jazz and blues photos."
You can now access a list of featured professional photographers under PEOPLE on the menu bar. Click here for the direct link to our directory.
We now feature professional photographers on a separate page that lists them by name with a link to the their photo archive. We sort the order of featured photographers by last upload date.
Photo of the Day / Photos of the Week
During the photo approval process, Bill will designate photos for inclusion in our photo of the day feature as well as the photos of the week.

You must tag your photos to make them searchable in the gallery. We'd like you to title them as well, and you can do this from your MANAGE PHOTOS page.
The gallery saves three versions of your photo: large, medium and thumbnail. We'd like the large horizontal photos to be at least 800 pixels wide. And make sure your images are saved at 72dpi.
You can read our upload guidelines here.
Your Copyright Notice
We go to great lengths to protect and credit your photos and we encourage you to upload photos without a physical copyright notice, though we strongly encourage you to use a digital watermark. If you must use a copyright, please use a small font, with a 50% opacity, and place it in the lower right or lower left corner of the photo.
We'll be back in touch when we have more photographer news. Until then, reach out to Bill and say hello!
All the best,
