  1. I have lost most of my stars in Alamy and want to gain them back. My last several submissions have passed, but I am curious if anyone knows which counts more, batches or individual pictures. Do we get a bigger ding on our rankings because of all the pictures rejected in a batch? Does the algorithm say , "Oh, we just rejected one batch, so that's a point off of Susan," or does it say, "We just rejected 20 images, so that's 20 points off Susan?" I saw a recommendation somewhere to submit in small batches. If I submit many one or two picture batches that pass, will I gain my stars back more quickly? Does anyone know? Thanks for any insight.
  2. Rejection reason Soft or lacking definition - Noise I have never spent so much time examining sky and shadows in my pictures and the edges of the frame. But this does not seem to be enough. I would like to rant, but more than rant, I would like to understand why some softness at the edge of the frame is enough to (well I think it's the scaffolding top right which has been softened in perspective correction that is the problem) why the edge of the frame is so important to QC.. "Softness lacking definition" would that be my problem, top right or is it the whole image? Also "Noise" is that the brown in the shadow in the bottom mid right of the image? Or is it that the sky is not right? I'm trying to understand and I am also trying not to second guess myself. If they can't sell a picture like this; well there's possibly a little something they won't like in a LOT of my pictures? (only 25+ years as a professional what would I know?) I'm worried. I'm really worried. The time, the turnaround for a rejection on a unique view (the scaffold). It all seems a very hit and miss. I would be interested in feedback. I KNEW that that piece of scaffolding was soft; did not and does not bother me - it's not the focus or the locus of the image. Is this how it's gong to be, a set rejected over this? Am I missing something? Thank you for your input, I am trying to understand when I must drop an image from my selections. 100% Scaff detail (wont let me load the link) https://photos.app.goo.gl/FxWCnVGqx3jqMLBc7 100% Dark bottom of frame https://photos.app.goo.gl/VZjNWAS4KsiswCvY9
  3. I shoot mostly for stock with a Nikon. I bought a Lumix DMC-ZS60 (18 mps with Leica zoom) 'travel camera' to use when I am on vacation and also for casual use as I run errands about town when I don't want to lug the Nikon. I uploaded a few photos from a recent foreign vacation and had few or no issues with Alamy. I recently uploaded a batch of nine local shots (eight shot with the Nikon and one with the Lumix) and the entire lot was rejected due to the the quality of one shot from the Lumix. I am aware of Alamy's policy of rejecting one/rejecting all (which seems unfair). The Lumix is said to not be a good low-light camera and I agree with that. When this batch was rejected Alamy did cite noise as one reason for rejection but they also cited the rejection as being taken with a "digital camera not suitable for Alamy". As a result they revoked my upload privileges for 10 days. Has anyone experienced this same rejection reason with a Lumix and does Alamy in fact have a published list of cameras they automatically accept content from?
  4. I've just had another photo rejected for noise. Photo taken on a Sony Nex 5N at ISO 400. Last photo to be rejected for noise was taken on the RX100, 5N has bigger sensor. What do you think ? https://postimg.cc/image/yam9zvrl7/
  5. I find the selection process strange. I uploaded 3 test photos only to have them rejected. OK, one of them was my fault as it was an experimental image and was rejected due to over manipulation. I accept that, however, the other 2 were rejected due to being "soft or lacking definition" The portrait was intentionally soft as I wanted to capture my model in a "dreamy" state. The other, rafting on the Isar Canal, I just don*t understand the rejection at all. I am a contributor to Getty as well as Adobe. It puzzles me that when Getty and Adobe accept my images why should they be rejected by alamy? I view Getty as the benchmark. I am not afraid of criticism where it is warranted, indeed it helps in improving my work, but the rejection of the remaining 2 images more than puzzles me.
  6. My latest batch submissions show all the same issue: Soft or lack definition. I'm shooting RAW with prime lenses, both AF (Fuji X) and MF (Zeiss) with Sharpness to default settings. After my first two rejections, i tried to apply more Clarity within LR and also tried to submit different images to understand the issue. Same result. At the moment I'm experimenting with LR settings and/or 3rd party plugins but i don't want to waste months in this since every time a rejection occurs i need to wait 1 month Alamy QC to reply with the motivation and this is my 6th rejection in a row. It seems this issue started with RAW , i uploaded in the past JPGs ooc and they were fine (3300+ pics on my portfolio). What's your experience? Which is the best way to avoid this issue? Do you sharpen each file individually in LR or using 3rd party plugins for each file? Thanks in advance
  7. I've had another set of pictures rejected for Noise - and the only thing I can find that might be considered noise are black dots on the leaves of the Jak tree behind the rare and pin-sharp monkey. From picture to picture, there they are, the same black dots on the same position on the same leaves. So it's not my photo, it's nature. This isn't the first time I've had rejections for nature's imperfections, so what should I do: touch up the leaves to unrealistic smoothness?
  8. Hi All ... I am new here ... And uploaded a photo at first ... then uploaded more 4 at once ... after some days ... alamy QC failed ... This is the email alamy sent : We sent this automatically so there's no one here to reply. Hello Motasem Unfortunately, your test submission (Media Reference OL3177735, OL3177497) has failed.

  9. Hi Everyone, I've just joined and I'm trying to become a contributor here on Alamy so I've submitted my first 4 images for QC as per the guidelines. Unfortunately I have failed on this occasion, not sure how to interpret the message I got though, please see below: We found the following errors: Filename Rejection reason Cornwall40.jpg Number of images We need 4 images to pass our initial quality check before you can submit more. Does this mean that Cornwall40.jpg was the only one that has failed? Or is this the only one that has passed the QC while other 3 failed? Thanks, L.
  10. Has anyone using the FujiFilm X-T1 gotten the dreaded soft or lacking definition rejection? I did the Milford Track in March and have been submitting images from that trip and on my third batch I got the SOLD rejection of a landscape image. I process my RAW using ACR and the finished images do have a bit of the “watercolor” effect in the foliage and rocks. I carefully reviewed all the images and deleted two from the batch have now resubmitted them. My question for those using the FujiFilm X-T1 camera… Any rejections? What RAW converter do you use? Any sharpening? If so what settings? Thanks, David L. Moore
  11. I had turned in my 4 pictures for approval and got the response to all of them, "Soft or lacking definition" . Im not sure what they mean by this because i felt like the images were all pretty good. Id appreciate any advice or further explanation as to what they meant for each picture. http://www.viewbug.com/photo/4149938 http://www.viewbug.com/photo/4009814 http://www.viewbug.com/photo/4191373 http://www.viewbug.com/photo/3510758
