  1. Impossible to say with 100% certainty. The question you have to ask yourself is "does my image contain artwork that takes up more than 1/3 of the total frame, by which someone else could claim copyright to?" If you're not sure, don't take the risk. Cheers Alamy
  2. The benefit is that you earn a higher commission for images exclusive to us. If you mark images as exclusive when they are not, then this could be treated as a breach of contract leading to possible consequences including removal of images from the site. Our sales staff can view images marked as exclusive and we do have options of sharing exclusive images to customers if that's what they require. Cheers Alamy
  3. We can refer you to the contributor help pages for that, but for ease here's the info you need from that very page: What classifies an image as Exclusive to Alamy? You will receive 50% of each direct sale for images that are Exclusive to Alamy and 40% for images that are not Exclusive to Alamy. Below we have answered some frequently asked questions surrounding what classifies an image as exclusive. Images of artwork Images of artwork in context can be marked as exclusive. The general rule of thumb is that the artwork can’t take up any more than 1/3 of the image frame. Different versions of the same image Similar versions of the same image that are available on other licencing platforms can’t be marked as exclusive (i.e. B&W, different crop, or slight adjustments). However, images that are from the same shoot, but shot from a different angle or the model is posing differently, is considered a different image and can be marked as exclusive if that particular shot is not available elsewhere. Facebook and Instagram You can upload exclusive images to Facebook and Instagram. Selling direct Images can be sold through your own website or directly to customers and still be marked as Exclusive on Alamy. POD sites Images that are available via POD sites can be marked as exclusive as long as they’re not offered for additional licencing through the POD site. We consider additional products as mugs and towels the same as prints. Cheers Alamy
  4. Just a quick one on this from us - sorry for the confusion regarding the number. There has been a lag on the number pulled from the database for the email and what today's total may be. All other info is correct, the exact number may not match though in all cases. Cheers Alamy

    Hi David - totally agree, we'll look into rolling out a fix as soon as possible if there is an issue our side. Best, Alamy
  6. Hmm - seems an odd one, thanks for raising. It looks like when you search for "trick or treaters line at house", the results are just showing for "line at house". We'll speak to the search guru's in their secret lab and find out what's going on. Until then. Cheers Alamy
  7. We've published a short blog post in tribute to Keith. Comments are open if you wanted to add your thoughts. https://www.alamy.com/blog/our-friend-and-talented-photographer-keith-morris Alamy
  8. Here's our latest infographic detailing some of the charitable initiatives we're currently involved in.
  9. As posted elsewhere, we’d like to share our deepest sympathies with the family and friends of Keith Morris. He was an incredibly talented, smart and energetic man and this is a huge loss for all that knew him. Keith was one of Alamy's most admired and successful photographers; his photos were regularly seen on newspaper front pages and websites around the globe. The past couple springs he held a workshop in Cirencester where he taught other photographers how to shoot for Alamy giving them tips on Stock and News while inspiring them with his mantra #shootlocalsellglobal. He will be sorely missed by the Alamy family. See more of his work: http://ow.ly/vmXX50wEzux
  10. We're looking to get your views on this, please vote using the options above. Thanks Alamy
  11. Wouldn't say we were happy with the Flickr photo - just that the photo posted to Flickr bears little resemblance to the image at full resolution and 100% magnification. ISO levels are irrelevant if you've manipulated the image beyond what it's capable of taking. No matter what label it has, "Noise, Soft" etc, the image is severely degraded and lacking technical quality. Alamy
  12. To confirm, this level of image quality is way off acceptable. There is a highly insufficient level of sharpness and detail. We also wouldn't recommend using the free photos window software to post process your images, and would always recommend shooting and processing in RAW. Alamy
  13. Yes, we can confirm they are the dimensions of the image. Here is a 100% crop of the tree area, right of centre: And here is a 100% crop of the top of the centre tree area with the roof in the background: Can we just ask - what software are you using to process these images? Alamy
