When I try to register for a new Tirol Media Site Account, I receive a message that the e-mail address or username already exists.  How can I set up my account?
This message indicates that an account has already been set up with the e-mail address you’re trying to use; you already have been subscribed to the E-Mail Update Subscription Service of Tirol Tourist Board’s Media Site. Your e-mail address was logged in automatically and taken to the new system which means that you are already registered with the Media Site. To login to your account, you must create a new password. Click the Login Button and follow the “Forgot Password” link (http://presse.tirol.at/en/user/lost/password/). You will receive an e-mail with a link you can click to enter a new password. Once your password has been updated, you will be re-directed to the Login page. You will need to enter the e-mail address and password you just set up to log into your account.

What’s the difference between the “automatic E-Mail Update Subscription Service with Topic Selection” and the “Press Service Newsletter”?
The “Press Service Newsletter” is sent to you by the PR Team of the Tirol Tourist Board. The Tirol Tourist Board is responsible for its editorial contents and the PR Team selects the press releases you are receiving. This Newsletter is sent irregularly but not more than twice a month. The “automatic E-Mail Update Subscription Service with Topic Selection” works like an RSS Feed. As a registered member, you can select the topics that interest you and specify the frequency at which you want to receive notifications from Tirol. The “automatic E-Mail Update Subscription Service” also includes press releases by Tirol’s Regions or by local Tourist Boards. It is the author of the article who is responsible for its editorial content and not the Tirol Tourist Board. By registering your details with the Tirol Media Site you select your topics of interest and the frequency at which you want to receive notifications. This personalized e-mail alert service lets you know about newly published material on presse.tirol.at that is of interest to you, aiming to provide you with the information and resources you need, customized to your preferences. You can change your topics of interest and the frequency anytime.

I can’t find the images I’m looking for in the Tirol Media Site library of high-resolution photos. Where can I find additional imagery from Tirol?
The new Image & Video Library of the Tirol Tourist Board features more high-resolution photos and videos for promoting Tirol as a leisure destination or in a news story. Tirol Media Site members can use their account to access the Online Image Library (http://www.bilder.tirol.at). If you are searching for images of a select region, you will find a Press Contact Directory with links to all Tirol Tourist Boards here.
