  1. I'm a newcomer to stock libraries and have recently joined Alamy & Shutterstock. As it states in the rules, any shots I have submitted to Alamy with contain recognisable property with no release have been set to editorial use only. An example being this shot: https://tinyurl.com/ukxakq4. This shot was initially rejected by Shutterstock, because I had set the usage to Commercial and not editorial. Indeed, Shutterstock appear to be paranoid about this rule. When I look at other similar shots on Alamy, I've noticed that the majority of them have been set to commercial use, despite the author of the photo stating there is no property release. So hypothetically, if a photographer was to sell a photo that contained recognisable property for commercial purposes without a release and the property holder complains, who takes the rap? Is it the photographer or Alamy?
  2. I'm new to the stock photography world, so forgive me if this has been asked before. I'm lead to understand that if you submit the same photos to multiple stock libraries, you can save a lot of time adding keywords to each site by placing your keywords for that specific photo in the keywords tag box in Lightroom. Apparently, the stock site you are uploading that specific photo to will pick up the keywords and add them automatically, thus saving you a lot of time having to write them out again. I don't have Lightroom, but I have Adobe Bridge. Would the same thing work if you added the keywords in the keywords IPTC core section of Bridge?
  3. I have 2/3 star rating and I'm still waiting for shots to be cleared (I have a 100% pass rate) that I submitted 3 days ago. ☹️
  4. They came through about an hour or so ago - all passed!
  5. Out of curiosity, how long is QC taking these days? The reason why I ask is that my first batch of around 75+ shots I uploaded all got cleared in less than a day. I uploaded a load more on Saturday and they are still in QC. I've had no QC fails and my QC rating is showing as 2 out of three stars.
  6. Thanks for the heads up - it is actually a winch for a fishing boat, but I'll correct it. It must have accidentally been selected when doing another image. Out of interest, how do you read someone else's keywords?
  7. Thanks Y'all. They've all appeared now. Must have been the server not updating.
  8. Hi all First time poster here and only have just joined Alamy in the last few days. So far I've only uploaded a very small amount of images (around 150), so I know I have to upload a hell of a lot more! I've noticed that not all of my images that have passed QC and are on sale are not showing up in my contributor portfolio. Is there any reason for this?
