  1. Ha, I just uploaded a set of images from 2016 although they are from an event, newsworthy at the time, that I noticed no-one else had submiited images for, so I hope that they will still be found if there are any relevant searches.
  2. I own a number of unique artworks by relatively well-known "street" artists, although these items are not "street art" (murals) they small artworks hung inside my home I realise that the artists own the copyright, but can I submit photos of them to Alamy for editorial use? And if so do I need to apply the 1/3 rule (as here: https://www.alamy.com/contributor/how-to-sell-images/understanding-stock-image-licensing/?section=6) or is that only for marking the image as exclusive? One of the items was created for me by the artist so no other photos of it exist, so could I mar
  3. You can embed the caption, description, tags etc in the image before you upload - but I don't know if they are actually looked at by the QC team, I suspect not. Anyway, if the image then does pass QC they are already loaded into Image Manager and so long as you have a caption and 5 tags the image will go on sale. https://www.alamy.com/contributor/how-to-sell-images/captions-and-keywords-for-images/?section=8
  4. Thought I'd choose this subtle headwear from Philip Treacy 2D2AJ97
  5. So has anyone managed to get a "licensable image" badge on their images in Google? I updated the metadata on one of my images to add the Copyright Image URL and Licensor URL, uploaded it to my website and asked Google to index the page it is on. The image is indexed, but it does not have the "licensable image" badge, nor the "Get this image on: <url>" description. It does show the "Creator", "Credit" and "Copyright" details in the description with my name etc but not as clickable links, whereas my other images generally just say "Images may be subject to cop
  6. I once sold an image from my website to an ad agency for 10's of £K - I asked them how they found the image, and it was from a Google search. My website was not even set-up to sell images, it was just a showcase, and for me that particular image was a "throwaway" shot, interesting but not what my other clients at the time wanted. They are a big ad agency and use both photo agencies and commission photographers, but they could not find anything suitable from an agency and did not have the time (and probably didn't want the expense - the shot involved 15 people, non identifiable) to commission t
  7. It's in Beta at the moment at Google - do we know if Alamy will be adding this as a feature - it requires either additional properties in the structured data schema, or additional IPTC fields on the image. https://developers.google.com/search/docs/data-types/image-license-metadata

  11. I closed my account with SS in March. Although I sold more images there than anywhere else, the amount per image was insulting and only ever went down with time. Plus they declined my application to become an Editorial Contributor, a bit like Live News here, because they already have someone to cover the events I cover (mostly catwalk fashion shows in London) and didn't want duplicate content, fair enough, but of course my shots were better than their contributor. LOL! Well I have been embedded in the LFW scene for some years so can generally get a better spot etc.
  12. Check out "captive" by animal rights photographer Jo-Anne McArthur: https://joannemcarthur.com/projects/photos/captive/ This too: https://www.slrlounge.com/prisoners-a-photo-story-showing-the-pain-of-animals-kept-in-a-zoo-in-bangladesh/
  13. I was unsuccessful too. I only joined Alamy a few months ago, I specialise in catwalk fashion at events such as London Fashion Week, I had taken a break from photography and only just started again so was pleased to be able to upload some images from a LFW show back in Feb...then they made the changes to news contributions and I applied to be a news contributor but was rejected. I realise that my subject is not "hard news" but I have previously been published in fashion magazines around the world, including British Vogue, and in newspapers, but nothing recent to put on my application, which I
