  1. How to delete in Image Manager

    Irritating indeed, by all means keep the one that failed to remind you. But the others haven't failed they just haven't been checked. By the way, in a post about QC a while ago you suggested a Fuji X camera. Whilst I didn't buy it to keep Alamy happy I did get an X100 (first model, no suffix) and am very impressed. Even jpegs strait out of the camera are good.
  2. How to delete in Image Manager

    I appreciate the I can leave them but they are irritating me. I would like to delete them.
  3. I have just had one fail out of 39. They are all taken using the same lens which has had failures before. I don't want them hanging around but cant find a way to delete them. How do I delete them. Thanks
  4. Images stuck in QC

    Me too. Posted 3 as a test yesterday (pics had failed previously with the same kit) and another 20 or so last night and they all went through this morning.
  5. Images stuck in QC

    Just for the record mine came through as OK yesterday (Tuesday) lunchtime. Pictures submitted Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Next time I will try submitting a batch and then waiting. Cheers
  6. Images stuck in QC

    I am obviously taking the wrong medicine as in spite of not having any blockages my pics have not cleared QC.
  7. Images stuck in QC

    I also have about 50 images waiting for QC uploaded over the last 3 days. I have just started using FTP and some have been arriving 1 at a time. Is this a disadvantage? Also, if I upload a batch before the previous batch has been QC'd does it delay the earlier batch. Cheers Rob
  8. Discoverability, Stars and Keywords

    There is a PDF which has full instructions on the discoverability issue. It explains it all. The above quote in bold blue is taken from it.

    Well, well. They passed!
  10. Quality control issues

    For the benefit of all those who have given advice I am uploading another batch. Let's see how we get on this time
  11. Nik Collection now free

    Thank you to the original poster for this information. I have downloaded and installed to both PC and Mac. I'd be interested to know if anyone has had QC problems after using any of the Nik Collection.
  12. Registration numbers

    Hi I'd like to restart this one. Suppose I have a property release but the owner of the property doesn't want the number shown. I'd have no problem in removing the number but would it casue any problems with Alamy. Robert
  13. Quality control issues

    Hi All Just for the record I thought I would let you know that all of my second batch of pictures failed QC also for soft or lacking definition (same as last time). I followed most of the relavent advice given here and spent one hell of a long time on it. The bottom line for me is that it isn't worth the time spent on fideling around to get a few pictures on here. I enjoy my photography and I enjoy making pictures that others like, I think I'll leave it at that. Thanks again for all your help. Robert
  14. Quality control issues

    You didn't put me off David, I was just having a bit of fun. I did have a look at some scans of slides I took with my Pentax MX a few years ago and the quality is truly awful. So maybe this digital stuff isnt that bad ;-) Indeed since reading this thread and the help that has been offered I have been very selective about the RAW files used and done a minimum of processing and the results, at least to me, are a great improvement. Thanks again. Robert
  15. Quality control issues

    Thank you David, that is a very comprehensive reply. I've taken what you say on board, and it makes sense. But if this "simple" digital photography gets any more complicated I think I may go back to my Pentax M kit and scan the films :-) I use Flickr to choose the shots, that's all. Regards and thanks.
