  1. Hi, I'm a relatively new contributor and thought I'd say hello! The forum has been very helpful for trying to figure this process out, so thanks so much to the regulars here! I haven't made any sales yet, and am just trying to pick away at downloading and keywording. Feel free to give me some feedback--and if there are any contributors who are located in Asheville, I would love to get together with you sometime and trade notes! Have a great day, Gloria
  2. Hello

    Hi. I set up my alamy account ages ago but I've now finally decided to start uploading regularly. So far I have done a kind of test upload with live news at Bristol balloon fiesta just to get to know how it all works. I know everyone has asked this and I'm sure it's becoming a little tedious for the regulars on here. But 'dare I say it', any advice on keywords from those first pictures I have uploaded would be great. Picture feedback is also appreciated but before anyone says it, these where straight out of camera as it was the early hours of the morning when I uploaded so I already know there is an element of post processing missing from these. Regards James
  3. Hey from Newcastle!

    Thought I'd introduce myself after coming back from a long hiatus. I lost my account for a while and now I'm wanting to get back into the Stock Photography scene for a little bit of extra income. Could people take a look at my feed? Some of it is old from when I would bulk upload, but recently I've refined it a little more. Less bulk uploading, more picking and choosing. Any feedback is absolutely welcome. Tear my work to shreds if you have to, I want and need to get better. Thanks! James.
  4. Hi Everyone!

  5. Hello there! I'm a new photographer from the Netherlands. I've got a question about the QC. What is meant by "JPEG over 17 MB"? Does it mean I need to uncompress my photos before I upload them, or does it mean the maximum file size is at 17 MB? If I do have to uncompress my photos, are there any services that let you do that for free?
  6. I started to upload images here at the end of last year. I realised soon it is difficult to sell images on Alamy with little portfolios. So i had only few hope at first. Now I had surprised and happy for my first two sales.Today I am happy to say hello to all of you and hope to have an happy future here. If you want, you can also view at my portfolio and make comments or suggestions.

  8. "Hi Y'all" from Kentucky

    Greetings and Best Wishes from the Bluegrass State...home of great basketball, fast horses, beautiful women, world-renowned spirits, and the Colonel's Best (complete with eleven secret herbs and spices). Following a health-"inspired" early retirement, hoping to burn off excess energy by taking my camera into our beautiful countryside, mountains, waterways, cities and plains to get some pictures that others may find interesting or useful.
  9. Hello from a new contributor

    I just joined Alamy last month and have been very busy uploading images so thought it was time to stop by and say hello to everyone and try out this discussions page. Not expectantly I haven't made a sale yet but these are early days and my portfolio is still building. Any suggestions or advice on the way ahead would be appreciated. Already having a problem with this post, tried to add an image but 'My Media' only has an attachment section so help please, how do I add an image?, can't find any guidance on the searches.
  10. hello from bangladesh

    hello feeling great to be a part of alamy. thank you
  11. Hello from a sunny Southampton!

    Hi, I was recommended Alamy last year and have now tentatively stuck my toe in the water. I uploaded my 4 test images last Autumn and promptly did nothing for 6 months! Now trying to upload images and build up a stock that hopefully could bring in a little cash. I am not a photographer by profession, although I sometimes have to use my limited skills at work in a design and marketing studio. I've got over 9,000 photos on flickr, and I'm hoping that will make sorting out a few of the better ones for on here easier. I'm struggling with uploading at the moment though, I'm not finding it as straighforward as it appears! (How long does it usually take for a batch of uploaded photos to appear?) I'm into a lot of old stuff - cars and bicycles - and getting out on them on rides and road trips. Also a few air shows, and a few bits of local interest in and around Southampton. I'm not sure if there is any market for it all though! We will see ... Hopefully it will be worth the effort involved in uploading and tagging the images. Will be searching on here for tips to help with tagging photos, and what is worth uploading, permissions etc ... Mike. https://www.flickr.com/photos/29051501@N08/collections
  12. Hi from Brazil!

    Hi folks, This is my first post here. I am coming from a microstock agency where I have been selling my pictures as RF since 2005 where I have more than 13.000 picutres. I am not a pro, but an engineer (electrical) who loves photography and find this as a way to help pay my bills and give more focus on photographic work. I love to travel, I define myself as a travel photographer if you will, so that´s mostly what you will find in my portfolio. I still have tons of images to process, and am always learning new things, I am open minded. I also know more or less what I don´t like much, studio photography, find it a bit boring to stay enclosed taking pictures. I also don´t like much taking pictures of models, rather take pictures of people, I mean, real people even though, I didnt explore much this (people images) in my portfolio, mostly architecture and landscapes (but things can always change). Oh yeah, I am brazilian, happily married (and my wife join me in most of my trips), no kids (the world is overcrowded anyway, but I am ok with kids), many friends and love pets (even though we don´t have any, small apartment, you know). I decided to join Alamy because I want to change from RF to RM, it seems to me that makes more sense focusing on quality than quantity and so maybe less sales, but more valuable ones, does this make sense to you? I am also sharing, I dont mind sharing experiences, actually I love to do that! So, if you are going anywhere I´ve been to, just ask me and I will gladly give you some tips. Same apply to photography, if in some way you think I can help you, I will always be there for you. I work with a Canon 5D Mark II (I would love to upgrade to a Mark III though) and process using Photoshop CC. In my trips I always bring my Gitzo tripod, a 24-105, a 17-35 and a 70-300 lenses. Later I bought a lensbaby which has been a lot of fun lens to work with. Enough for introductions, you guys have a wonderful weekend! Cheers,
  13. Hola! from Ecuador

    Hola! I've been adding photos like a mad woman the last couple of weeks and am up to 46 in my collection with many more to come. And I think I've figured out search terms as 5 photos have shown up in views! Hurray for small victories! I'm curious, do many of you post keywords in two languages? Currently, the vast majority of my photos are from Ecuador as that is my current home. Since Quito was once again selected as one of the top tour destinations in South America (and the world), I hope to capture some of the increased interested in travel and tourism to this beautiful country. It is so much more than the Galapagos... and that place alone is wonderful. I would also appreciate any feedback on the concept pseudonyms - do you use them and if so, why? If you have specifically chosen not to, do you think it has hurt your CTR rating? Looking forward to productive sales in micro-stock photography, Angie
