  1. Newspaper sales up to three months. If hasn't turned by then, you should notify Alamy. The Guardian sometimes quicker - my last took about two months before turned up as a sale.
  2. I thought it was a joke - but I also woke up to five stars this morning 😀 - any quicker QC will, of course, be an incentive to upload more newsworthy images this way. Will only have to wait for the daily update then, as Graham also states.
  3. Meanderingemu, this was solely meant as a further emphasis of what you already wrote about adding 'Editorial Only'.
  4. Read this blog post: https://www.alamy.com/blog/the-low-down-on-street-art
  5. You don't tell us the reason for failure, which is necessary. Often this could be the reason, but perhaps not in your case: "No point of focus, or out of focus when we feel it’s not artistically intended to be." Probably only a minor adjustment on your side is necessary to fly through QC at nearly all times. You are not the only professional photographer who had to adjust to sell on Alamy. And, yes, one faulty image will fail your whole submission - (waiting number of images).. We are quite a lot who prefer the system at Alamy which enhances our self-control and leaves more money to contributors. https://www.alamy.com/contributor/how-to-sell-images/guidelines-for-submitting-images/?section=3 https://www.alamy.com/contributors/alamy-how-to-pass-qc.pdf https://www.alamy.com/contributor/how-to-sell-images/alamy-quality-control/?section=5 After your first submission has passed: Send us as many images as you like as often as you like We’ll just spot-check a few of your images per submission If the images we check are ok, your whole submission will pass If we find a problem with one image, your whole submission will fail You’ll receive a pass or fail email and we’ll update the submission in AIM Niels Quist
  6. Very hard work in many ways. Brighton up your images - avoid too many darkish similars. Keyword intelligently, etc.etc. Very difficult with nearly 200 million media files here. Or simply drag and drop ☺️
  7. Hi Marta. That question has been asked a lot of times 😀 https://discussion.alamy.com/topic/10476-file-size-required-to-upload-to-alamy/?tab=comments#comment-187536
  8. If RM and all boxes about persons and property are ticked correctly - including the boxes that tell you do not have any of these releases - you would handle it as many think is the good old-fashioned way here. Sensitive images should also be marked editorial. Could be art, persons or any other scenes you think should be further protected. Your judgement. Property is much more here than at microstock. Buildings and flags f.inst. would be property when selling on Alamy - and much more - even countryside sometimes. But most of your images are shot in Austrialia, so I won't even try to be clever here. You should get a reply from an Aussie.
  9. No, it isn't a laughing matter. Thanks. This word has also been filed. I think I heard it in the news without catching it completely. Good luck.
  10. 😂- today's best laugh procrastinate - procrastinating - procrastination - and thank you DJ for teaching a foreigner a word that will be stored in vocabulary and used in the future.
  11. YES, all awaiting images failed.
  12. Nope. Not according to anything we know about this.
