  1. With a 10MP file - unless you want to rescale the px dimensions upwards (i.e make the dimensions larger) - you don't need to set 'Resize to fit' to anything.  Just leave the checkbox blank and the resolution set to 300 ppi.

    Have tried that but it reduces the jpg size...from 6.5mp to 4.6mp which affects the compressed size...but actually seems to still pass the size-check...will try out some other uploads, but thanks for the advice :)


    The quality setting doesn't affect the uncompressed file size.

    OP, coould you post a screenshot of your LR export dialogue box showing the size settings?

    Just tried to upload a screenshot but the system syas the file ext. is not allowe in thsi community...will try another method


    sorry..can't seem to get a screen shot...even with word?????


    the settings I have been using are to reset size to 3872x2592 (width and height) resoloution set at 300

  3. Anything over 3600x2400 is big enough for Alamy. Check your export settings. Unless you're still using a camera of 8MP or less you shouldn't be resizing at all.


    PS- just looked at your port- your native size is 3872 x 2592 (10MP) and some of your crops are really close to the 24MB limit. Are you over-cropping without resizing, and could you be resizing so that your portraits come out at 2592 long edge?

    Hi Spacecadet


    I'm not cropping or re-sizing at all...my `standard `portrait' size (in Lightroom) shows as 2592x3872...my landscapes are the reverse, yet the portraits fail upload,,,(I'm using a Nikon D60).  Baffles me

  4. In case you're wondering, I posted this in the Alamy forum by mistake


    When I open up a `preview' of a topic/thread I get the option of `mark as read'...if I then go into the topic I can't do the same from within the topic...I have to backup to enable....seems to be adding a further unnecessary step.....



    or have I missed something?

  6. thanks..that's where I'm looking ...but it still seems to show `all zooms' on a particular word search (from within my onw pseudonyms).

    Look at 'search activity- your images' for your own stats, not 'all of Alamy'..

    With such a small number of images you shouldn't expect more than a couple of zooms a month.


    isle mull 17 1 0 0 0.00 2,640 4 0.15  



    The `4' in the zoom column and therefore the CTR (0.15) are not mine, but all the searches made under `Isle Mull' this month.


    I'm not expecting big (or any numbers for that matter) numbers while I build up my pf....but do like to understand the analysis better.


  7. I wonder whether anyone can explain whether this is correct or not?


    For a few months I have had zero zooms....ok, I say, no-one has been interested in my `historical' uploads...I regularly look at `your images' and today I had an increase in `your views' but zero zooms.  Interested in which images people are looking at, when I delve deeper, I find that there have been a number of views on my recent uploads (within the last month). Still with me?


    The highest `your views' were for the recent upload (17 views) and `your images' shows 4 zooms....but the overall count for the current month shows 0 zooms.  How can this be?


    Confused? or what?

  8. ^^ Agree with Allan that that seems the most likely explanation: one company dealing with several brands.  Lucky you: well done!

    agree..some of the major travel companies are owned by a single holding company but trade separately.  Take TUI for example...here's a list of their major brands..http://www.tuitravelplc.com/brand-experience/featured-brands


    Assume that each `brand' would require a separate licence :)


    "Sales"? Since this almost always shows a zero, occasionally a one, there's not much to be learned from that. 

    It is a puzzlement. 


    In All of Alamy, if you click on the menu data title, "Sales," the list of search terms will be reordered in order of sales (from most to least) and puts all the items that show 0 sales some three or four pages away (you have to click on the Sales title twice to get order from highest to lowest). I find this feature very useful to see what search terms buyers are using that generate the most sales...and if my own keywords are missing any of the terms if I have a similar image. 


    I also find it useful to search for subjects (especially those I can find right around my house) I hadn't thought of shooting that have sold.



    an interesting exercise..but take `pumpkin' as a search word...it comes up with 45,000+ entries and many more links...I have a few pumpkin shots..but how would I ever find mine in such a big field of pumpkins? ...is there a generic search order if a potential buyer doesn't specify?  e.g. date order or ref number?
