Thanks for your feedback.
The term 'associated newsletters' refers to the email newsletters we send out - if you have signed up to the mailing list, you will have received one on Friday. In the newsletters, we highlight and provide links to key features of the site, such as the galleries, picture of the day etc.
I'm afraid you assume incorrectly about a member of staff downloading an image that they may want to use in the future. We don't routinely do this because of the fact that these images may be deleted by the owner by the time we may wish to highlight them in a newsletter, or direct other members to them through a blog etc. We generally bookmark a gallery/image we like - if it's removed prior to us directing people to it, then no problem, we have others we can look at.
However, the difficulty comes when we print a PhotoRadar advertisement in a magazine, say, which includes screenshots taken from the site, showing the homepage with picture of the day, or featured photographer, or recent uploads. Due to lead times, an image may have been removed from the site between the advertisment being finished and appearing in print. This was what I meant by it being impracticable for the team to keep track of images that have been removed from the site and so remove them from screenshots - apologies if that wasn't clear.
With respect to your point about video, we have no intention to deceive here. I plan to add this to the photo/image paragraph in Section 5 once we start to offer a video upload facility.
