  1. I just use whatever pixels the image happens to be after cropping. Should I aim for a particular pixel size?
  2. Thank you for your replies. I received a quick & friendly response from Alamy support who have asked for screenshots of any errors. I tried several times to upload with varying errors, including a Shockwave error. Trying both Firefox & IE, I eventually managed an upload of 9 files which took about an hour. I'm thinking that they may have a routing issue. Shockwave?
  3. Is there a new max file size, or have I missed something? Today, I tried to upload a batch which failed due to exceeding the max filesize of 10mb per image. My rejected images were sizes 13mb, 10mb, 12mb, 10mb & 21mb. Some smaller images did go through, but the failure cancelled the batch. My previous upload on Monday was successful & had file sizes of 20mb, 24mb, 14mb & 20mb. These are the actual JPG compressed file sizes on disk. I'm wondering if something has changed & I need to make my images smaller? If so, what is the best way to do this? I'm not sure whether I should change the compression level (from the Lightroom export), or reduce the image pixel size? Thank you.
  4. The Wi-Fi issue with the D750 was that the default setting for Wi-Fi once enabled was for no encryption. Once WPA2 is configured, there is no issue - much like any Wi-Fi network. http://nikonrumors.com/2014/09/25/nikon-d750-uses-an-unsecured-wi-fi-network-anyone-can-download-your-pictures.aspx/
  5. I've had a small batch waiting since Monday. I'm storing up with packets of crisps.
  6. Thank you Paulette, it is very kind of you to mention that. The fish is one of my own Discus, she is called "Marmalade". I was using her for some practise & the image was the 9th photo taken on my new camera. I have recently got inspired again after a break from photography for over 30 years. The quite low lighting in the tank & my wish not to use flash (Discus are startled easily), meant that I had quite a wide aperture. With also a high ISO, I had little choice. The Discus will constantly move their pectoral fins to maintain position & I feel that the motion blur worked nicely & I was happy not to stress the fish with flash. regarding QC, I was concerned about a few air bubbles in the water which looked like dust, but I'm happy that the shot squeezed through. I've been looking at some of your wonderful wildlife shots, the otter in particular looks excellent & I expect that you can retire on the earnings from the "cuddling" bears! Nick
  7. Thank you for your reply, Alan. Now that I have soem more understanding of the Alamy system, I can adjust my workflow to suit. I appreciate your help. As at 09:30am GMT Tuesday, my first batch appear to be listed! Nick
  8. Greetings, I am a new Alamy member. I have a question or two regarding uploading & scheduling. My first upload of 4 images has passed QC & I have added keywords etc. I have uploaded a second small batch which is awaiting QC. Is there a limit on how many submissions per account can get through QC per day/week? Once approved through QC, how long before they are available for sale & can be searched in the database? (My first batch shows as available for sale in "My Alamy", but is not yet in the database) When editing keywords to an already keyworded image, how does this affect the image availability for sale? Thank you.
