  1. Thank you both! Betty, that's what I thought. Rick
  2. I've been searching, but can't find any info on whether or not it's possible to edit or revise an image that's passed QC. If Yes, how? If No, I understand - the revisions could negatively affect the image's QC. Which makes me think the only way is to delete the image, re-process it, and then re-submit it. Am close? Way off? Thanks, Rick
  3. First, sincere thanks to you all, lately Robert, John, and Niels. I'm serious. Thanks for your patience and, obviously, your tolerance. As to your "head scratchings" about my question: In short, it came from my (misplaced) print-based world and experience (editorial, advertising, personal) in which 300dpi is it. That's been my only barometer until now, thanks to you. Yes, I shoot RAW/jpeg. Yes, only the two small files were kicked out. The rest of the submissions passed. The jpegs in question were shot on-assignment, 2012-15. Bicycle racing. I reopened and QC'd them after a (much appreciated) Alamy "Trending" alert for such sports. And it was there, after one particular event, right in the middle of all these healthy files, come ... what? Two files in particular. So I wrote to the Forum for my first post. Niels, you hit it out of the park with your math example on how to measure an uncompressed jpeg size! That changes everything for me. I never knew. Now I do. I've had some experience with stock. Nothing like Alamy, even after so short a time. Thanks again, for such informative and relevant responses. Take care, Rick
  4. Thanks, Roger. Highest resolution JPEGS always in the 5D. Wouldn't smaller images go all funky zoomed into 200%? And my file size is at 300ppi. Rick
  5. Thanks, spacecadet. Good info, and fast, Appreciated. (I'm not a techie. I always thought "Tech" meant "Blah!" in some obscure foreign dialect. ) As for the #2301 image at 3324x1801 being too small , that's the one that started all this! Zooming in to 200%, it is just beginning to soften! (NEC MultiSync PA272W monitor). Absolutely no pixelation or any other anomaly. Edge to edge. I can practically feel the racers' hearts beating! (Sorry about that.) In a 707KB file?? And NO Photoshop? Really? How? Am I missing something? Is it okay and/or safe to send the image? Would that make things easier? I don't know how it would help, except to verify what I've said. But if it helps ... Thanks again, spacecadet. Rick
  6. Hello, and thanks for the help. I have an image situation I have never encountered before, and am completely baffled! (I’ve sent this same message to NAPP, Canon, and a couple other serious photo forums for answers, suggestions, opinions.) I list two examples below (there are others) from the same shoot/day/time: Image #2309: Canon 5D Mk. lll w/ 70-200mm f/2.8 Metadata 3324 x 1801 pixels @ 300 ppi, Jpeg untouched File size: 707 KB!!! How is that even possible? I have viewed it at 200% and it is still sharp! Image #2273: Same camera and lens as above Metadata 5760 x 3640 pixels @ 300 ppi, jpeg untouched File size: 918 KB!!! Still sharp at 200% BTW: Other images from the same shoot are fine. Please help. Any suggestions are deeply appreciated. Obviously, Alamy rejected the files as “too small.” But they’re not. Thanks. Very much. Cheers, Rick
