  1. 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)
  2. On the Alamy Image Manager page, my image count is given as 3040. However, on my dashboard, the total of images under Status comes to 2859, a difference of 181. Does anyone have an explanation for this? Iain Lowson
  3. I have contributed to Alamy almost 10 years now and have well over 15,000 images online. I average a minimum of several image license sales every week of the year. I have been shooting professionally for over 30 years, using digital capture and Adobe Photoshop for almost 15 years, and have never had a digital image rejected for quality reasons by any other stock agent, including Getty, except by Alamy. In recent months I have experienced what I perceive to be inconsistencies in the Quality Control measures. After going years without a QC Failure, I have had two batches of images fa
  4. I have image on Sthutterstock, Fotolia,Istock,Dreamstime,123Rf and Alamy. In all of them i have sells, but not in Alamy, why? What kinds of images could be sell on Alamy?
  5. I've just passed 10,000 images with Alamy!!! It's taken me nearly 12 years but i've made it before the end of the year, which was my aim at the beginning of the year. Here's to the next 10,000, which hopefully won't take as long! John.
  6. Hi everyone, I'm new to Alamy and am slowly feeling my way through the procedures. One thing I haven't been able to find an answer to is how to get a link to a specific image and/or a folder of images on Alamy. I would like to promote my images on social media and provide a link back to an image, or a folder of images on Alamy's site. I know you can provide a search bar to search your images, but I'm looking for a different solution. I appreciate your help. Cheers, Tim Anger
  7. Hi All, I am a photographer for many years, have no problem to pass QC here. I 've accumulated about 5000 images here. most of them have 50 keywords with good caption. But nothing was soled. why ?
  8. Dear All, I am very new and gave only 3 photographs for sale.After 2 days I find that my images are on sale with Poor Discoverability! How do I increase or covert it to Good or Optimized? Would be grateful if I get the advice! Thanks in advance Best Abhijit
  9. I'll kick this off with this historic villa overlooking Lake Como. I added grain in post-production and happy that Alamy QC didn't have any issues! Have a great May everybody.
  10. I'm sure there must be an answer for this but how easy is it to determine how many times an individual image has sold? I would like to easily see which images are selling and which to cull. Many thanks in advance. BW, John
  11. I've just passed the 5000 images milestone. At least 95% were taken on a Sony RX100 M1 or more recently a secondhand Sony RX100 M3. I have no other photographic equipment and just use Adobe Elements 14 for editing. Most were taken on days out/holidays which is where the small Sony comes into it's own. I can snap away while out with family and friends without disrupting the day or appearing rude. Anyone considering one of these cameras should look at my portfolio by clicking on the total images figure on the right. Stock photography on a shoestring maybe,
  12. I would value some input on the shooting format my fellow contributors use. I currently shoot everything in RAW format with almost all camera with little or no in camera processing etc. This means I must must edit every image before submission etc and this makes for a very laborious and time consuming process. I have very recently been looking at samples of a friends portfolio shot with a quality Lumix compact camera in JPEG format and his results are very impressive indeed even without much post shoot processing. This holds good even for images printed on large canvasses and on display
  13. I've noticed that the Alamy algorithm seems to keep returning images that I have deleted IN PREFERENCE to images that are in my two main pseudonyms. I kind of understand that even though I have decided these photos shouldn't be sold, that Alamy still keeps them available for sale, and so e.g. a search for the Rijksmuseum might show 5 from my main pseudonym and 5 from the deleted images. But some search terms return only images that I have deleted, and none from the ones that I have decided are better. I can't believe that the algorithm can't be weighted towards those that I have chosen to s
  14. Looks like Google have made it (slightly) harder to save images on their image search facility, which has to be a good thing. It's not going to solve the problem of image theft but every little bit helps in my view .... http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-43085053 Marc
  15. Is there a separate Alamy submission portal for cell phone images? YC
  16. I don't thing I can be accused of promoting another agency judging by the images in this article..... good for a laugh though ! http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-5105643/The-weirdest-stock-images-online.html
  17. Hello guys, im a new contributor on Alamy. Hope sales have been good for you all. As a illustrator that works with vector mostly i was quite surprised to see that they sell all vectors for 9.99 as opposed to photos/illustrations where there are alot of pricing options. So my question is - for a contributor, whats the advantage of uploading the vector file instead of only the jpeg? It seems like uploading the vector file will limit the amount of money he can make with the sales. Would love to read your opinions on this before uploading my work.
  18. When every art has its Auto-Tune, how will we distinguish great beauty from an increasingly perfect average? Some good tips. Worth a read. https://aeon.co/essays/how-algorithms-are-transforming-artistic-creativity
  19. Hello everyone. I'm new at Alamy. Could you take look at my portfolio and give some valuable critics. Thank you. http://www.alamy.com/search/imageresults.aspx?&xstx=0&userid={CA48BF86-825B-409E-8E90-AE3D82059810}&name=Halit+Ölmez&st=12
  20. Hi everyone, over a several months I have uploaded almost 500 images. I thought I had carefully tagged, keyworded and filled in all the information required by Alamy to list my images. But after a few months away from the site I see a lot of my images have still a way to go for 'discoverability' but when I revisit my dashboard I can't find what is missing, there does not appear any notes or suggestions on how to improve my listings. And no matter how far I search 'my dashboard' I can't find anything to read up on. Has anyone got any suggestions or had the same experiences please?
  21. Colours of images appear very vibrant, saturated, punchy to me this morning ....anyone else notice this change? Kathy
  22. Has anyone found that optimizing their images actually help? I have been trying to improve on the discoverability & hope that the green line progresses, sometimes yes sometimes no. I do have a lot in the "amber" zone so is it worth trying to help them or do they get found & sold without the extra work involved with images already posted previously? A fellow photographer did tell me recently that she sold a picture of a really weird sign that was only in "amber"!! However there were not many with that particular caption, so that may have helped her. Any imput you have on my questions
  23. Previously we could vary the images per page on searches. My preference was for 120. I cannot find this feature in the new search function and the default appears to be 100. Am I missing something? dov
