  1. Thanks MDM, that's helpful. I heard back from Alamy, and it turns out that there was a problem with my captioning last time I submitted live news, but I was granted access again.
  2. I just emailed them. Yes, I have previously been able to upload live news. Weird thing is I remembered that last time I uploaded a regular stock photo, it was available for sale immediately after uploading if description/headline metadata was present (if not, it was available for sale as soon as I added info). So I just uploaded the live news photos that way. Has that been the case for awhile, that images go on sale immediately, instead of after the day or two approval process?
  3. The "Live News" section is grayed out for me, on the upload page on Alamy web site; the "Stock" and "Reportage/Archival" sections are working normally. Also, I don't see a "live news" folder when logging in via FTP (to newsupload.alamy.com). I am approved for live news contributions. Anyone know why that is?
  4. Feature request: ability to exclude pseudonymous photos. I use my name for most of my photos on Alamy, but also use a pseudonym. On portfolio pages, all photos show...kind of defeats the purpose of pseudonyms in my view. I contacted support, they confirmed there's currently no way to do exclude pseudonym photos.
  5. Under "Discoverability" in image manager, I just noticed this--what does "optimized" refer to?
  6. My portraits of Dan Robbins, one of the founders of Paint-by-Numbers, were published in the Guardian, BBC, and Telegraph: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/obituaries/2019/04/09/dan-robbins-illustrator-designer-pioneered-paint-by-numbers/ https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-47822227 https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/shortcuts/2019/apr/05/from-warhol-to-minimalism-how-painting-by-numbers-revolutionised-art
  7. I just heard back from an Alamy staff person; in case anyone else was wondering, your portfolio page will include pseudonymous photos as well, no way to remove them. On the other hand, you can create galleries from the portfolio page, with whatever images you choose to add.
  8. Anyone know if it's possible to keep pseudonym photos from your Alamy portfolio page? I don't see any setting for that...
  9. My mistake; "personal use" is the default choice, so it's highlighted, to me it looked like a heading. So I thought that entire top section was "personal use.," as opposed to the bottom section, which is "royalty free license."
  10. I see, the "personal use" section for my RF images has the 5 yr limit, but below that, under "choose royalty free license," there's no time limit. I think I get it now, but yeah, confusing, and seems weird to have a 5 yr limit on personal use...
  11. Hm, I'm a bit confused about how/when 5 yr limit vs. no limit works. So in the first case I mentioned, you're saying the time limit will be removed after 24 hours, since I changed it to RF/editorial only? For new RF images, if I choose "editorial only," there won't be a time limit?
  12. Thanks. Also: how would I remove time limit for an RF image like this: https://www.alamy.com/cactus-euphorbia-trigona-against-a-solid-blue-background-image229544433.html It shows 5 year time limit for websites and magazines/books.
  13. Thanks John. Interesting about customers getting unique options, I didn't know that. RF editorial sounds like a good idea for me in this instance; so I would switch RM to RF, and then check "for editorial use only," right? ETA: I checked an RF image of mine, and that shows 5 year time limit too...so now I'm confused...
  14. I've seen people mention "in perpetuity" licenses, but I don't see that option for one of my RM editorial photos (and I got an email from an editor who wants to use it, but without time limit). When I choose editorial/editorial website/duration, I only see the 5 years option; am I missing something? Is that not available for RM? https://www.alamy.com/bruce-siewerth-former-theater-teacher-at-evanston-township-high-school-image229036237.html
