  1. Hi,

    I’ve used a kaleidoscope filter to modify a few of my photos and submitted them to QC. Some are going through but others are rejected. The reason given for  rejection  is along the lines of you can’t call a photo editorial and add something which alters it (the filter?) . If you want to be creative ie use a filter you need to submit as commercial but then you’d need a release from the property owner but only if the property is still recognisable despite the effect of the filter,


    Can anyone help me out with the rules on this?



  2. This one of mine in The Guardian in a piece about livestock suffering in the heatwave.


    Article here https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/jul/13/sunscreen-for-cows-uk-farmers-struggle-to-cope-with-heatwave


    All three pix from Alamy - Graham Turner, Andrew Gardner and mine. 


    No fee yet hasn’t appeared on my account - was only in The Guardian a couple of days ago.

    The main purpose of the forum is that it helps Alamy. It means that newbies are helped, and questions get answered. It takes pressure off Contributor Relations or whatever it is called now.


    Also, a  lot of potential conspiracy theories get challenged and laid to out in the fresh air rather than festering away and multiplying in the darkness!


    Whether helping newbies and answering questions helps us as individuals depends on your opinion, but I am grateful to receive help and so like to try and reciprocate. 


    Personally I have had enough of private forums - I much prefer this one with Alamy's usually light-touch oversight.


    Back to the topic. I'd like it personally if everybody posted 'number of sales + gross'. I find it useful to know what figures we are working with and what can be achieved by those better/more successful than me. 


    Rather than us all putting up our numbers individually with subjective comments I’d like to see alamy publish some data. Anonymised analysis ie count of contributors who sold 0-25, 26-50, 50+ images for gross revenue <100, <200, <300 etc. Per month and per year categories. Plus some trending going back 1year, 5 years, 10 years. That would be way more useful than us trying to draw conclusions from a subset of contributors who visit this forum, Have alamy ever been approached to do this?

    Had a packet of those in the freezer but they didn't say how they wanted them photographed. i.e. Product with box, without box, one or two, cooked or frozen, with fries, without fries, on a plate, or on a tray or with a white background, so I didn't bother. Extra info would be helpful.


    You can go on their twitter feed and ask. I’ve done that and i got the extra info.
