  1. even with model release, i doubt NBC would give you the right to use their logo commercially.
  2. though i can understand your potential reading of the guidelines, it would lead to major abuse as you would then load one image press submit, and therefor have all images considered as "separate submission". This is not how industrial QC should work. I would worry if my food manufacturer considered batch as "what was produced in last 2 minutes seconds" and only remove the one bad so called batch when a problem was found. If there was ONE problem in the system, all should be recalled
  3. solid image subjects i think. Be careful on your food images, you seem to crop really tight and cut some of the plates. one thing i noticed is on most of your images of "Young boy" you are missing the gender-less keywords such as Kid, Child also image 2A7M328. The subject is way more the VW van, so it should be in the title (more weight in search), you should pull it from shadows a bit more, and i think the horizon could be more straight ... also i don't see much "burnt" to be honest
  4. yeah, i would think just adding basic description with 5 KW would be better, than nothing, and should be minimal time
  5. possibly not a rebill, just a recalculation of how much you get once Alamy gets the funds, if billing in made in other currency (if i shop at Alamyimages.fr the price is in Euro). I have no idea, who assumes the currency risk in the agreement to be honest.
  6. nice image. Was the buyer from Europe? could it just be Euro to Pound conversion?
  7. and as confirmed on page 1, it doesn't take much "variation" for Alamy to consider two images distinct. Showing two shots, one second apart from same spot, with a minor difference in look of person was classified different enough that i could upload one to Alamy only and call it "exclusive". (as stated only reason i have both is i rushed upload, and missed the subtle difference of the second). so it's almost as Alamy is saying, just press Shutter twice, and upload the one only here the other elsewhere and get 20% extra. with little distinctiveness for the customer.
  8. well image will stay 6 months from TOS. if you want the Pseudo gone earlier their is likely a way, but it meant more work, plus i didn't think of clear way to get all the image to delete easily until now. Under Pseudonym, check-mark the one you want to delete all the image Pick all images from the search ADD a keyword you did not use on any image in your profile (eg. "Deletable") to all images Change the Pseudonym on all these images to one you are keeping You should now have an empty Pseudo, which i am told you can delete. For t
  9. it makes reportage what it was supposed to be, an alternative to News for soft not timely news. I would use it for evening events where i had to go down to higher ISO, and where i want to client to see disclaimer that I know the image is softer,
  10. did it go through, before or after the other was approved? for me once i had one blocked, all further upload went in queue. Now that i got a QC all clear, uploads are immediate
  11. Go to image manager Under Pseudonym, check-mark the one you want to delete all the image Pick all images from the search go to "optional", click Delete xxx images wait 6 months for image to be removed from Alamy as per TOS delete Pseudonym
  12. or, oops the programmer made a mistake when introducing the ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
  13. note that my images uploaded today are now in QC queue. So it appears ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ still has QC, but on random batches, which i am fine with, as it will keep us honest. Thankfully these weren't as timely as the upload from yesterday. note: just uploaded one more image, and it also went in queue, so i guess i'm in QC for all my uploads today.
  14. also to consider that the post office does not owns the rights to the image in the stamp, for stamps of works of art.
  15. actually the one incentive that could be interesting is a true "what to shoot" based on actual client's needs, and premium price for preferred providers. the current list is just so random, with many things just based on "we think we have gaps" or "we want to develop our France market" with no feedback when you say, yes i've covered it, which is little incentive to go even slightly out of your way.
  16. yeah, i've always struggled with a vague notion of "Art". For example to a quilt maker, their work would be art, what about Alamy?. A handmade persian rug? Design on a cake? (i know i consider my favourite sushi restaurant to produce works of art 😀 )
  17. yeah same here. and to be honest the following Alamy changed to Editorial Only when they did the sweep, so i assume they are fine with it
  18. ratio is nothing to exclusivity i think, if not below 1/3 it's probably not supposed to even be made available. but the issue lies deeper i think, for art that is not as someone stated two-dimensional.
  19. thanks. my issue if more what is the contractual definition of "artwork" to be honest? so to clarify, cannot be "exclusive"
  20. thanks. this is really helpful. I think i was trying to be overly cautious.
