  1. I read with interest the thread started by efk11, because I too have been blacklisted too. My last QC failure was on 1st February 2016. Since the new AIM came in I have always had 3* QC rating. Since my last failure, I have made 191 uploads totalling 2406 passed images. Now I have 1* QC rating and a ten day ban. Now the interesting bit, what failed? An image from “Digital Camera not suitable for Alamy” The camera in question is a Sony RX100iii. I will no longer use it, or its big brother the RX10 for Alamy. Just a warning to anyone using RX10 or RX100 cameras – beware!
  2. When I saw this, I couldn't help but ask the question - why do we worry? No doubt this image was uploaded through the "archive" route as part of a gigantic upload (just look at the total number of images for this contributor) but still, it is disheartening to see this kind of material slipping through. Image ref = KCT8F1
  3. Hi there folks, So I recently joined Alamy and was raring to get some photos up, I had looked through the guides and FAQ and was pretty sure my photos would be good enough to go up on the site. I made my first submission of my three best images and eagerly awaited an e-mail, none came. I seen on the site that QC were away on holidays so there might be a backlog, okay I said and waited. No email still so I signed into Alamy and discover my images were rejected but I got no email either way as I was supposed to which annoyed me. The first image failed as it was soft or lacking definition I am only an amateur so I don't really understand exactly what they mean and thought okay maybe try something better, anyway underneath it stated the camera was unsuitable and that's what grinds my gears, its a Olympus VG120 14 megapixels I done some research and with it having a 1/2.3'' sensor and being 14 megapixels I thought it was adequate. So i find myself asking what to do am I just wasting my time because my camera will never be ''good'' enough and therefore should close my account? Any opinions or help welcome, I don't mean it if my tone sounds off in this post I am just a little bit disheartened by it all was really getting a buzz because I honestly thought all was good and I bothered to do some research its just a bit overwhelming for an amateur with all the technicalities. I would add the image in question to my post only I don't know how. Thanks Larry
  4. Hi guys, So I decided to make my first attempt of submitting images to Alamy. Per the requirement, it was only 4 images. I had done it about 24 hours ago and have got their QC report, here it is: Hello Shashank Unfortunately, your test submission has failed. We found the following errors: Filename Rejection reason Watercock_Male_Female.jpg Camera shake Soft or lacking definition We need 4 images to pass our initial quality check before you can submit more. Am I correct in understanding this is a partial failure i.e. 3 of the images were found acceptable, but the entire submission was rejected because of this one image? Please guide. Also since the issue pointed out was softness, I'd like to share a few screenshots for your review: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B6CczEu2s7SPV0lNY1VpWmxTd0E&usp=drive_web. I'm using a Nikon D5300, and a Nikkor AF-S 80-400G ED VR. I had done minimal post-processing on this and no sharpening, but I had honestly thought a little bit of sharpening done by a prospective client (as pointed out in the QC guidelines) was all that would be needed for the image, as there was a fair bit of detail. I considered doing a little of sharpening on the image post the report, but have decided to chuck it all together and try another image. Thoughts?
  5. hi, please look at my failed image here: http://www.buyimage.co.uk/x/x.jpg 650d 24-105 L lens no manipulation output through lightroom reason for failure : interpolation artifacts do you agree there is a problem or not? I certainly don't and haven't a clue why this and several others have been failed! thx for your help
