  1. Yesterday I submitted 18 photos to live news. Half went straight through the other half got put into QC in batches of 1. Today the half in QC all passed and went into my main portfolio, the others are still available on the news desk. Why did Alamy split the batch? I didn’t get an email explaining and the half that went into QC are all similiar/ relevant content so I don’t understand what happened. 


    Any suggestions?

    Just wondering, do images uploaded as stock have greater long term sales potential than those submitted as live news, which ultimately transfer into stock?

    In other words, as live news images are not subject to the strict quality control governing other images, are clients less likely to trust one?

    And if that were the case, is there any value in deleting live news images that haven't sold within three days (or choose a suitable period here), then resubmitting the same images later as stock?

    All thoughts gratefully received...



    Just jumping in to follow this thread. Noob trying to learn.

    I was following a thread in the another topic in the forum over the weekend. It was about getting out in the recent good weather, here in the UK, to take some stock photos. Long story short, someone mentioned it had started to rain on his 'good weather' shoot putting an end to that days fun. That was followed by a comment by someone else, that bad weather was no excuse to put the camera away. 


    I whole heartedly agree agree with that. I'm not to precious over my equipment and some of my favourite photos, in my small portfolio, have been taken in some awful weather conditions. Here's an example I took of a couple on a beach at. T4 event a few summers ago. It still makes me smile and was printed in The Sun newspaper. I wondered if anyone else felt the same, with some examples of course 😊








    That's a great image, very funny and somehow very British - the weather, the "we're going to sit on the beach regardless" attitude. :)
