Hi, I've recently joined alamy and had my initial submission of 4 images QC approved in less than 24 hours. However, my first 'real' upload is still awaiting QC at 120 hours (5 full working days) and counting. I contacted Alamy support and was told that "Normally a submission goes through QC in 24 hours but sometimes this can take a bit longer". 5 days isn't really what I'd consider 'a bit longer'. Is this normal? I guess another option is to apply for a News FTP account. Can anyone recommend this? Most of what I want to upload to Alamy is general editorial stock, but I also get some more timely news material I'd want to get online ASAP. Can anyone recommend a stock photo service that is a little more modern with their QC approvals?
