  2. When I was having trouble, both the web uploader and FileZilla were having trouble, but I prefer to just use FTP through Filezilla. Today I again uploaded some and it went smoothly again. I think in my specific case it was just a hardware problem. Good luck!
  3. When I was having trouble, mine were taking so long that Alamy must have been timing out and then each image (if it uploaded at all) would also only be one image per submission, with several submissions spread out over hours. They all did make it though QC, though, so it worked out! I bought a new wi-fi adapter for my computer and now I have no problems uploading. This is a newly-built computer, and I think I just had a faulty wi-fi connection that was causing issues. I'm sorry that that probably doesn't help anyone else having problems uploading, but in my case, I just uploaded a batch and it went very quickly and very smoothly. I hope all the rest of you can find a quick solution, too!
  4. I've been having trouble uploading lately. I have tried both the online uploader and FileZilla, and they both get stuck for a longtime and eventually stop. They first all get stuck (I've tried uploading anywhere from 1-7 photos simultaneously) at 524288 bytes (512 kb, or halve a megabyte) and then Occasionally creep up little by little. I've been able to upload two photos in the last 10+ attempts. The rest all just crashed. Is Alamy experiencing slow servers now? I know the pandemic is of course limiting staff availability, but I didn't know it would also affect uploads... or is it an issue on my end? Has anyone else had this problem lately?

The description for the image is clear and correct.
  6. Another sale! I'm quite new here, so this has been my best month (in volume) ever with 3 sales! Haha. Too bad this, like the others, was only low $.

  8. Country: Worldwide Usage: Marketing package - Small business Mid $$, exclusive to Alamy. You never know what people are going to need. Sometimes they want beautiful landscapes, and other times they want photos of your precious strawberry plants being demolished by an insect infestation.
  9. Yes, but it's a bit easier with extra monitor space I think. They're still on the same computer, so I'm just copying and pasting - not going between two computers, thank goodness.
  10. Sadly, you are right. I asked them, and they said they were willing to completely delete the older versions, but will not do the re-tagging for me. They don't have a particularly easy system for copying over tags, but I've kind of gotten the hang of it with the image manager open in two browser windows on two monitors, going back and both. It's slow going when I'd rather be editing new photos, but I think that if I keep editing the same way, neither my new or my old ones will be sellable, so I might as well try to get it right!
  11. Thanks for the quick response! I am using Capture One. In this process, I am learning to love the Highlights and Shadows sliders! I guess my personal inclination is toward leaving in too much contrast. I'm learning to break that habit.
  12. I have re-uploaded over 100 images that I think were too dark, and brightened them. So far I have only re-captioned and tagged about 1/4 of them, but you can now see them in my portfolio. Are these looking bright enough to perhaps be useful? Thank you again to everyone who has offered ideas and support!
  13. Thank you for that! I was curious about this, too. I am actually friends with the artist who designs it, and work at the place where the prints themselves are made and have received permission from all required parties to sell images of these works. Even with that permission and property release, is such an image still not sell-able?
  14. Thanks! Just had my first sale, and I'm going to slowly go through my photos re-evaluating captions and tags, while also re-editing some of the darker landscapes to brighten them up. Thank you all again for the pointers and ideas! All you wonderful people of the Alamy forum have been an immense help!
