  1. Heya - I'm Alex, a passionate photographer. I recently uploaded my test submission, but I believe an error occurred, and I want to see if I can take it back. I only uploaded one image for my test submission and the image is already in QC. I believe that the system requires you to upload 3, but my one image automatically was sent to QC, and I can't upload any more images. However, it also isn't the image I want to upload - and I can't upload the other 2 images I need to upload, so I was hoping if I can take the image back and re-upload my images for my test submission. The ID of the i
  2. Hey everyone, I’m Alex, a new photographer at Alamy. I’ve got a few questions :) 1) How long exactly does it take for my images to be reviewed? I’ve heard a day and 3 weeks, but I just wanted some confirmation. :) 2) Is there a way I can stay signed in? Every time I sign in, after awhile I’m out again... 3) Can I not add a payment method (for now)? I’m willing to add one later, but will my account balance be rest if I add/change one? 4) Will my images go live after I add the tags/title/etc., or does Alamy have to do a quick check? :) 5)
  3. Good afternoon! from the moment of registration on Alamy , from June 8, all the photos are in the KK. What does this mean?
  4. I have a three star QC rating with my DSLR. I just bought a Canon EOS 6Mii. The images are boarder line to my eye. Can I send three in to see if they pass or is that going to ruin my QC rating?
  5. Hi! I'm having big problems with the Alamy QC system. I'm an internationally published photographer with 26 years of experience. When I submit my perfectly detailed, sharp, and high-res images, some get rejected, as well as the entire batch! In fact, these are the same image files that I use to make huge prints in sizes up to 40x60. So you can understand my frustration. Thus far, I've found that the Alamy QC system has problems with highly detailed shots of prairies (which is my specialty) and images of flowing water with wonderful motion blur. I can only imagin
  6. Hello Everyone:) This is a repeat of a question I posted this last Saturday... How many times does one have to submit 3 photos to be approved by Alamy Quality Control? I have the email from Alamy, sent to me on August 22nd approving my 3 photos & welcoming me to Alamy - I took that to mean that I'd passed the test. But maybe not...? I've looked through the site & have not found any info - I will be the first to admit I might have overlooked something though:) Any info on this would be greatly appreciated. Regards, Elizabeth - aka tinyninjacat
  7. Hi, I am back again with another rejection ! ☹️ Not uploaded for a while. A double whammy this time - noise and out of focus. What do you think ? Taken with rx100, ISO 125, f6.3, 1/250 sec.
  8. Hello everyone. I just recently got started on Alamy and was wondering: do you think my Pentax Q7 has what it takes to meet Alalmy's quality criteria? I have taken plenty of pictures which I believe were great until I tried submitting them and having them rejected with a message that said "Sorry, but this camera doesn't produce images of high enough quality for our requirements". I have seen an amazing photographer whose work I like a lot; his name is Mark Phillips and has the same vibe that I wish I could express with my pictures. Anyways, I thought maybe it was a mat
  9. Hi everyone, how u doing (Joey special) Quick question ,,, I think I joined but..... How do confirm if my first 3 images images passed quality control ? cheers
  10. Hi everyone Sorry to ask another question. Do I Need to Submit My Three Vectors by Clicking on the "Upload" button on the top left from Alamy Image Manager? I already uploaded them through FTP FileZilla inside the "Vectors Folder", and was a success. They have a "passed" status on Alamy Image Manager. I went on and clicked on the "Upload" button and submitted one image, should I be concerned? My original three images still show up, so I guess I don't need to worry, but must I still do something, or leave it alone, thank you. Regards, Javier
  11. Hi everyone, I have already successfully transferred and uploaded all my Adobe Illustrator CC 2019 files through FileZilla. Next, Under "Captions and tags for vectors on Alamy" Step 2 instructs "Use Alamy Image Manager in My Alamy (after we’ve processed your submission)". Does this mean that I should wait until Alamy's quality control, or can I immediately proceed to this step? In other words, does Alamy check my vectors right after I upload them through FileZilla, or after I complete step 2? Your help would be much appreciated. Regards, Javier
  12. Hello there. I am new to Alamy and am essentially still finding my footing in the stock photography world. On uploading my images I have come across the terms RM or RF. Which one do you think one should go with and why or under what circumstances.
  13. Anyone know when Alamy are closing/opening shop for QC over Christmas? BTW, Merry Xmas to all!
  14. hello how to erase the images that are refused to the quality control and why when a single image has noise for example it is the whole serie which is refused ? thanks for your answer
  15. I just started using Alamy, and after passing the test submission I submitted several submissions with about 50 photos in each one. On the first 4 submissions all of the photos were taken with a Nikon D750, but on the last couple there were a few photos mixed in that were shot with an iPhone and a point and shoot that I accidentally submitted. All of the photos were rejected the next day, including the first 4 submissions (that only used Nikon D750). In the email saying that the submissions failed QC, the reason was for a photo using the point and shoot in the third to last submission that the
  16. I have a Nikon P520 camera and will soon be getting a mirrorless camera. I had sent a few Images for submission and it didn't pass the test. In the QC control guidelines, Alamy mentions that the only take photos from DSLRs and DSLR like cameras and not mobile phones. The P520 doesn't have a large sensor, but the images are shot at best possible image quality (ISO 80 and best JPEG quality) and have been my most successful images on Shutterstock and were accepted at istock getty. So they definitely don't lack in selling ability. So does the P520 qualify as DSLR like? I think the
  17. Just thought I'd say Thanks, I've wanted a small camera for ages that had good quality and after finally buying the RX100 mk3 and taken a few shots, it is exactly the type of small pocket style camera, I've been after, perfect for when I don't want to carry my Nikon. So thanks for those who have recommended it, obviously their are some things it won't do, but it's pretty impressive, from a few test shots I've taken so far and as I've just been told, my small batch have passed quality control, I'm looking forward to taking more photos with it, when out and about on my bike and stuff
  18. I uploaded a bunch of photos recently and would like to keyword them if possible this weekend, assuming they passed. Thanks in advance. Rick
  19. Hey Folks, I'm new to Alamy and I would like to know if there is anybody that uses the Canon G7X Mark II for Alamy and that has passed the quality control. The rules only mention that it has to be a DSLR or "equivalente", which I'm not sure what exactly it means and since G7X II has 20.1 MP it seems it should do ok as a "equivalent"... Thanks in advance!
  20. Hi Everybody, Firstly, I think it's great Alamy has such a tight QC and the contributor interface is brilliant. As an amateur, having sold regularly on Microstock sites and got up to about 80% acceptance rate, I felt ready to try Alamy and wondered what a good batch size might be? 100 would be much too big as I'd very probably have 1 or more fail and lose the whole batch... and have to wait 10 days before trying again? To put them up individually seems too small and every time one fails you lose another ten days. I'd thought 5 might be a good nu
  21. Dear Peeps at Alamy, Just an idea but wouldn't it be useful to be able to keyword photos in the QC approval queue? It might be wasted effort, if they eventually failed QC, but think of the potential time saved in being able to keyword photos while they sit in purgatory. What do people think?
  22. Can I use post-processing to make a photo look old? For instance - I have a photo of a paddle-wheel boat and I have made the photo look as if it was from the Civil War Era (tin type, scratches, faded) - Would that be accepted or rejected? Thanks, Kmahaffy
  23. Hi Guys, I uploaded some picture (a batch of 10). Once done I checked them on the AIM and the preview give me different images; they are not mine at all (soccer players)!?! The file names are correct and I will see once they are approved if it is ok. I was guessing it was an issue with my MAC, I tried on my iPAD and same issue... Someone faced this already? Regards,
  24. Dear all, i would like to upload some old photos (some of them more than a century old!) but i don't know which requirements do i have to respect in order to avoid to be rejected. In particular i wolud like to know if there is a quality guideline and how to manage permissions and release form (how to behave when the subject is passed away long time ago and i don't know who his/her family members are?) and so on. Can you help me? Best regards Riccardo
  25. I am not new in the section of Photography . My photos hangs on the wall of academy of fine arts(India) . I don't know one of my best image alamy rejected in qc . I hope it's a insult .
