  1. I was notified this morning that I've been approved for Reportage and Archive. So the question is answered, how long that process takes. 🙂
  2. Well the news story had a big resurgence, the whole "justice for" angle, along with a search for the suspects. Meanwhile I'm still blocked from uploading anything to Reportage. You'd think they'd want to see the photos first, before denying or approving the application. How long does it normally take to get accepted for Reportage/Archive uploads? And is it safe to assume there will be another delay as they approve the actual uploads? The thing is, I was following Alamy's specific instructions to bypass the standard process and instead receive a "tem
  3. In the meantime I'm preparing a collection of standard stock photos, emphasizing landscapes and nature. In particular I have photographed certain regional and national parks that appear to not have any stock photos available. I've been planning to do that for a long time.
  4. Thank you Stokie, I'll be ready next time. After 30 hours I did receive a reply from Alamy Contributor Relations this morning, only informing me I cannot upload anything to Reportage/ Archival until my application is reviewed. The photos are now 60 hours old and probably have no value or interest as current news. I bypassed Alamy already, reaching out directly to a regional paper where I've had news photos published before. So maybe I'll get a bite there. And I still intend to upload them as stock photos. CSI stuff is quite popular now, and I don't see an abundanc
  5. I think you're absolutely right. It was so fast and relatively easy to sign up, but then hit a speed bump. But they do market the LiveNews angle pretty heavily. I doubt many people have several days' notice they're going to photograph a news event. Tuesday morning here now, I still can't upload any news photos but at least the forum post has been approved. 🙂 It's very nice to 'meet' you, by the way. Have a good day!
  6. I want to walk through my experience so far. If someone could indicate whether this is typical, or Alamy is being stressed due to the epidemic. Because I'm not sure this is going to work out for me: Late Saturday night I took some local news photos that might have been of regional and local interest. I was hoping to have the photos available for licensing by Monday morning. On Sunday I began investigating Alamy, reading the contracts, etc. I completed the application process to become a member, and at 6:50 pm received an automated Welcome email. I immediately went thr
  7. Good morning! I was unable to get an account set up and temporary Live News status approved within the 24hr "news window." So now I await the account to be approved for "Reportage" content. In the meantime I'm exploring the website and setting up a Portfolio page. I have two questions, should be rather quick for someone who's been around Alamy: Will all of my submitted images appear on the Portfolio page? I'd rather not have that, especially certain news photos. Second, there are very intuitive buttons for the profile photo and title, but there is no "Edit
