  1. I have uploaded and passed QC, images from M2P and also a Yuneec Typhoon H and the H was not renowned for its camera.
  2. To the OP Its a reasonable shot and from your posts it obviously has personal value as a sentimental moment, but as said above it is nothing special in terms of sell-able images, if you already had an Alamy portfolio then it would be worth uploading because it might just sell at some point, however it probably wouldn't fetch much revenue, it might attract some editors attention if something in the news covers this subject but these days for such a shot you may get a tenner if you are lucky and that could be three years on from uploading, so unless you are going to start uploading stock im
  3. Im trying to get into promotional video, not really considered stock video until recently but a bit unsure of the best content for stock or where to sell.
  4. Thank you Joseph and Allan much appreciated. I don't have many stock images so it's always nice when I do make a sale, I was just a bit unsure whether they would both go through or be disappointed at some later point. This year had been fairly good for me, 14 sales for under 500 images seems okay to me considering I have very few recent uploads and as I am just about to be made redundant at work I wonder whether to have a bit of a run at stock. Not that I am under any illusions of making any real money at it but I am trying to get into video production and this may be a bit of a filler.
  5. So today I see one image sold twice to presumably the same client. At first I thought the second was a credit, but apparently not, both identical as below. So why would this be?

  6. Well, good news I did notice a second purchase for this a short while back and this evening received this email from Alamy "The infringement team have managed to get the infringer to purchase a license for the image use. This should be showing as a sale in your account now." Not a massive amount but better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. Well done Alamy
  7. Sorry late response, I agree to do it deliberately to avoid QC is not worth it, but it is fact nevertheless.
  8. Also it gets you past QC with a lower image quality and gets it up for sale quicker
  9. These sort of images have always been passed off as Live news from time to time, I haven't seen the images but they are no different to those depicting "Britain bakes in the heatwave" with generic beach shots? Bumper week of visitors to Zoo as kids holidays are hit by wet weather? Strawberries sales plummet as wet August continues? Perhaps this is why Alamy removed access to so many of us?
  10. Thanks all, I thought that might be the case, I have in the past submitted the Live news image. I like your idea Mr Standfast and may try it at some point when it is not too far from home.
  11. Personal use (apparently) only just $$ I'm not really sure how to post a larger size image?
  12. I have had a long break from stock, not that I am a massive contributor but I do get the odd sale now and again. I am looking at giving it another go and see that I now have to apply to get access to Live News. Fair enough but one of the pre-requisites for the application is "Please upload a recent PDF of a news clipping showing your published work" so is this catch 22 or is there anyway I can get accepted to make it worth going looking for news images? Cheers Steve
  13. Perhaps ironically I have just had another sale which was 'Personal Use' and at $12 was significantly more than the image I mentioned above at $4.84, it remains to be seen whether it really is "Personal Use" 😔
  14. I did but clicked on the thumbnail which takes you to the buy page.
  15. Okay well I heard back from Alamy fairly quickly and they pointed out there was no PU license for this image. That bit was my error, having seen $4.84 I jumped to the wrong conclusion and the Buy Image page defaults to PU radio button. However it turns out the website I linked to had no license for the image so they will "add it to the unauthorised use sheet" I guess holding my breath would not be recommended
  16. Thanks Cecile I couldn't find that but submitted that as well now. 😁
  17. Thanks John, just sent it in with link and screenshot
  18. I have an image that has sold recently for a total of $4.84 for "Personal Use" I have found it being used clearly on a business website. Who should i report this to and are Alamy likely to bother doing anything about it? Thanks
  19. I don't think you need to be quite afraid of it as he makes out in the video, I have started working with video recently (not for stock) and whilst what he says about memory requirements is true you can edit in proxy and then it is all quite manageable with 8MB RAM. Colour correction in Premier Pro actually, the basics at least work in a similar manner to Lightroom. Yes it is a steep learning curve but not something to shy away from if you wish to tackle it. Whether there is any money in it is of course another matter and it does require a lot of additional kit
  20. alright, thanks for the help I'll try and get used to it and play around a bit as suggested. Thanks and goodnight
  21. OK Im getting there I think, one last question if I may I have two images, unrelated but similar in that they are both aerial views over a similar area. Both are in the county of Derbyshire, on one the image is a supertag on the other it is not?
  22. hmm, okay but why if I select two similar images am I getting totally different keywords than are on both individually? So are the greyed out ones suggestions? If I delete a tag does that delete it from just selected images or from everything? Edit: if I have 2 selected it has totally different selection than the two individually
