  1. OH so as long as they have passed QC you then choose which ones would be editorial? because at the minute I cannot find an editorial ckick box on alamy
  2. some of your photos has a green colour cast so need correcting. and some subjects are too far away I only saw your 1st page though
  3. I had the same issue but you solve it if you add captions to each ifphoto. then they show up For sale straitaway which probably means are already for sale without the captions - a bit confusing
  4. I have the same problem but my last lot of approved photos says Not on sale Been like that for days & don't know how to change it. It's hard enouth to even find the photos for sale. I think its an over complex interface esspsialy for newcommers
  5. Was the above photo handheld & how do you choose for editorial on alamy? I bought a sony NEX cam last month (similar o yours I think) & uploaded 1 photo from it & alamy accepted it no probs. even though it was also handheld after sunset set at 1250 iso. The Sony's better on that iso than my old Olympus VG 130 pocket cam is at 100. There's another well known stock site that accepted photos even from the VG130 cam but they only pay a min of 25c.I sold I photo so far.
  6. Yes I started with 35mm on my very first camera in the 80's & they even accept film photograph scans on here which is great. (the only stock site that has so far) I have many film slides where you used a proejctor to view or small 35mm slide viewer. You need good quality scans though (not from those realy cheap scanners) But you can send them somewhere at reasonable cost to get scanned, negatives about £1 a strip slides are more. I do my own slide scans on an old Nikon scanner from 2003 which alamy accepted with no trouble as long as you crop the edges of the photo on a paint program. A good new scanner I believe is an Epson Perfection V550 which has adapters for 35mm or roll film. You need to remove dust & any sratches on the scanned photo though. but most good scanners including mine have digital ICE scratch dust removing systems built in. I'd love to use film again & when I told a friend that, they gave me a Minolta dymax SLR and some sony / Minolta lenses. I recently bought a sony NEX digital cam just so I could use these lenses (with an adapter) I don't think I'd use slide film again though because its so expensive. neg film is much cheaper to both buy and have developed. I have many old negatives too but sadly don't have the 35mm neg adapter for my scanner are hard to get now and scanning prints will be nowhere near as good.. What might be a good idea is to carry a film camera if you go somewhere special so you can shoot film as well as digital & have cameras that take the same lenses so not so much to carry - and if the battery runs out on the digital.
  7. its fine now. Alamy accepted the photo I mentioned (along with my others) even though I had painted out shop signs & logos am realy pleased. They are not on sale yet but I believe a the search engine puts them up. Is that correct?
  8. great shots hand held too. The sony cameras (have a NEX 5N which I just bought) does realy well on higher iso's. I just had a photo of the town at dusk accepted on alamy which was also handheld. Question is how slow a shutter speed can you use on the NEX with the OSS lens?
  9. this QC thing is realy hard for me because my eyesight is not so good. Still I'm getting realy good votes on photos on a competition site starting with 'Gu & people (other photographers) like my photos on another website (500) but their QC is very tough (they lisense with getty images) & have hardly accepted any of my photos including one I just submitted here which I spent time painting out logos on a street picture. (I used to work in design many yrs ago) but had o learn digital design on my own. The amazing thing is though Alamy is the Only site that has accepted any of my old slide film photos from the 1980s which have grain at 100% and less detail than most of my digital photos taken even with my old cheap sansung / Olympus point & shoot cameras
  10. I shot a photo just after sundown handheld of my town centre & even painted out all logos etc. It was at a higher ISO but still looks very good at 100%. I.Couldn't use a tripod because there were some moving cars in the schene. Do alamy accept higher ISO shots if there's little noise / grain in the photo?
  11. It looks as if you need several 1000 images to make reasonable money. How can you get to upload so many images when alamy rejects all the photos if even one fails OR do they get more lenient the more photos you have accepted?
  12. The scan size) is likely too large for 35mm film at nearly 50Mpix. I scanned my old 35mm transparancies at 2900 DPI (the max resolution on my old Nikon scanner) which gave about 12.5 Mpix sized images & were accepted here they needed retouching though.. Curiously they failed on other well known stock websites so the standards are different so it seems to be a juggling act.
