  1. Hi everyone We had some technical problems yesterday, our IT team is working on it and the images are now processing again. We expect it will take a day to get through the backlog. Apologies for the delay! Thanks Alamy

  5. Ambiguous new contract clause 4.11

    Hi everyone, Sorry - the wording isn't clear enough from us here so we're currently re-working it and will amend it very soon. There are journalistic exceptions to this clause where the name can be included if pertinent to the image, such as for a news story. More soon. Alamy

  7. Failed QC

    Hi, All QC at Alamy is done by real life human beings; there are no algorithms or AI (apart from minimum file size detection). We have removed the offensive posts, as they are against the forum etiquette, and locking the thread down as it has gone off course. You can see all the forum rules on the homepage. Thanks, Alamy

  9. Tips from the Alamy stand at the Photography Show

    Hello everyone We’d like to elaborate on the different subjects as we can see this thread has caused a bit of confusion. Keywording As a business Alamy has always asked contributors to keyword their own images. This means you can get your images on sale quicker with the most accurate information. As a potential one off, we can apply the super tag allocation for some photographers if they have a very large batch of images they need to supertag but it’s not something we can do automatically for each individual submission. The idea of the 10 first tags automatically turning to supertags is a good idea, but would unfortunately not work for everyone, and could have a negative effect for many photographers that are uploading images with attached metadata. We want contributors to consider their supertags carefully which is another reason why this process is not automated. Multiple accounts We don’t recommend creating several accounts for your images. The advice was given to a specific scenario, for most situations having different pseudonyms is the most appropriate course. If you have any questions on what would be the best option for your collection please get in touch with contributor relations. Batch sizes We recommend to upload fresh images on a regular basis. New images can be filtered in the search results so if you’re uploading fresh images regularly they will be shown higher up if customers are using this filter. It doesn't mean that uploading regularly gives you a higher rank. Captions only Images submitted through Live News or archive route can go online with just captions. We highly recommend to add tags and supertags to your archive uploads to make the images more searchable. For any photos uploaded through stock, a minimum of 5 tags are required. Hope that helps! Thanks Alamy
  10. Tips from the Alamy stand at the Photography Show

    Hi everyone First of all, it was really great meeting so many of you at the photography show. We had some really good conversations and it was very interesting to hear all about your individual experiences with stock and with Alamy! We'd like to mention that some of the above advice was given with a specific scenario in mind, and doesn't necessarily apply in a different context. It’s always best to contact Contributor Relations with any questions you have as they’ll be able to give you accurate information based on your account. Thanks Alamy
  11. Help Ed Rooney

    Like everyone else in this thread, we were really sorry to hear about Ed's situation, but it's been really heart-warming to see you all rally round as a community on this. We also want to contribute, so we won't be taking any commission from Ed's sales for the rest of 2018, putting Ed on 100% commission for his direct (non-distributor) sales on Alamy. We wish you all the best, Ed. Alamy
  12. Hi everyone, In case anyone is confused, the Live News desk is staffed all weekend UK hours 10am until 9pm. Any issues with Live News please contact the news team directly as they don't check the forums. In that way they can action quickly if needed. Many thanks Alamy
  13. Post your positive results in 2018 here! :)

    Hi everyone Just to let you know that we've deleted a few comments as we felt they were off topic. Thanks Alamy
  14. SERIOUSLY???

    Hi everyone Looks like this discussion has run its course, let's leave it for now. Many thanks Alamy
  15. Alamy Measures broken?

    Hi everyone We've mentioned to our IT team that some of you have spotted strange behavior from Alamy Measures, they're monitoring it at the moment. To explain the above, a high CTR for one image is unlikely to affect the average. Mark, if you would like us to look into the below issue, please email contributors@alamy.com with more details. We would need to know image ref, which keywords you removed, and which search is returning the image. Thanks Alamy
