    Angry Photo import

    Hi folks,

    I was wondering if anyone knew a way to buy a photo import licence without using a photographer? We are quite capable of taking photos, but having to manually import one at a time just because I'm not a photographer seems crazy!

    Cheers

    Have you asked Capita or your LA support? I believe you can buy a licence, after all it's only a bulk import that you are buying.

    When I spoke to Capita last year they said I could only get them from a photographer. I gave up last year, but its rolled round again and I'm hunting again

    I'm not sure that advice is correct.

    How about asking and paying a local photographer for a licence only.

    If it happens every years why not ask Capita about a licence? I'm not sure what the criteria is.

    Contact David Grassoff at Capita - I think you're after a Batch import license which is an annual license at £70. PM me if you want his contact details.

    just drop your school details (name, LA and DFE number) in an email to photolicense@capita.co.uk. Any problems do let me know.

    We buy ours on standing order every year and sort ourselves out so you should be okay.

    Just out of curiosity, how many people think it's acceptable that we have to pay a licence fee to import photographs in to SIMS? (I know you can do them each manually for no extra cost).

    Do we not pay enough for the system already without paying an additional £70 a year for this?

    To be fair there are a number of add-ons and modules that Capita have to charge for. This may be one, I don't know for sure.

    It appears to be a part of the basic SIMS system, I can't see any hint that it is an add-on...

    It's an additional function that requires the purchase of a licence to activate. I'm not absolutely sure but I think we have had this discussion with Capita and my comment above was the outcome.

    Yeah, I decided not to raise that particular point earlier, but it does sit badly with me. That said, management signed the order at 3:30 so I (or more accurately my PFY equiv) am very happy to not have ~300 manual imports ahead of me.

    I know that the OP did not use an external photographer but if you do:-

    If you are using a Capita approved photographer then they should provide the licence for you as part of their costs. If they don't, then look for a new photographer next year that does. They make enough out of the sales and purchasing the licence for you is the least they can do!

    The licence lasts for 12 months. It is possible to make this last for two years by having your new photo session less than 365 days from the last one. e.g. 9th September 2010 and 6th September 2011. The one licence will cover both sessions!
