  1. Hi All, New to the forum thing, so I'm a bit slow on the uptake on how all this works. I've been with Alamy for a few months now, but been a photographer for ages. I live on the edge of Dartmoor in Devon, and have covered mostly Festivals, concerts and am just moving into equestrian events to fill the gaps over the summer months. Photography is my only source of income, so the last couple of years have been... difficult. But onwards and upwards so they say. Look forward to getting to expand my network of fellow creators and learning new things. As I said, I'm new to this forum stuff, and nobody knows it all. Cheers, Will
  2. Hello everyone, I am very new in Alamy as a Illustrator/vector contributor. From start it is very easy to upload vector through FTP but I am unable to upload Illustrator via web uploader. It seems as if Illustration(JPEG format) gets lost in QC .Most of the time illustration does not appear in "Alamy Image Manager" and even if they do appear the success rate is quite poor, 1 out of 3 gets accepted. To understand the problem I have uploaded some Photos, eventually they were rejected but they did appeared as rejected. But that doesn't happen to Illustrations. Why? Can someone help?
  3. I'm fairly new to Alamy and was wondering how I could see all my images on Alamy. And if I have done anything wrong, because when I search for my pseudonym only 87 pictures come up when I have 300 for sale.
  4. Hello All, I am new here. I have recently passed QC test for alamy and uploaded some pics and submit. Can anyone tell me how many images should be there in the port to get the very first sale on alamy. How much we will get paid for one image here? Thanks in Advance,
  5. I tried to piggyback onto an older thread but that didn't really work, so here's my query regarding upgrading my computer to deal with the 42MP Sony RAW files and the latest versions of LR & PS CC. I have a late 2013 13" MacBook Pro Retina, 512GB SSD with an Intel i7 processor and 8GB RAM (not upgradeable) and a late 2011 iMac (128GB SSD & 1TB HD), with an Intel i5 (I think) and 4GB RAM upgradeable to 16GB. My iMac is still working well enough, though it's slow, but my MacBook Pro is just limping along. I can't replace them both at once so I am going to replace that laptop since using one on my lap is easier on my neck and back than sitting at a desk with my iMac. I also travel fairly often and I like to be able to work at a local coffee shop for a change of scene. I'm headed to the Apple Store to look at laptops tonight - I've done some research online and they cost nearly twice as much as I thought they would (hopefully the deals available as an ASMP member through their vendors will help) but I really want to see them in action first. I didn't want to succumb to the Black Friday/Cyber Monday madness, but wanted to give it some thought. It's a huge purchase. Probably close to $4,000! (I was thinking $2,300) Hoping if I purchase a new maxed out MacBook Pro with 32GBRAM and a fast processor, it will last me at least another 5 years (or more I hope). I'll keep my iMac since I can add RAM and get a monitor when it dies on me. No way am I buying two computers again, especially since the newest generation of MacBook Pros are nearly as powerful. For those of you with newish Macs, any suggestions on what to look for? Is the upgrade to 32GB RAM rather than 16GB worth the difference, especially as a way to future proof it? I'd love to get a 13" since it weighs a pound less but the processing power does not seem like it will be enough to replace a desktop especially down the line. I hear the 6-core i9's run hot but even my current i7 runs hot - I think that is just a function of these machines. The 13" is a perfect size for travel but the real estate is small for even reviewing photos if it is going to be my main computer - so going back to a 15", even if it weighs more, has other benefits besides speed. So - I'm thinking of getting a 15" with an i9 processor and 32MB RAM and a 2 or 4TB SSD drive, so I can use it on my lap without the need to keep it attached to my backup drive all the time. I have super fast internet but using a networked drive is a non-starter with my lightroom catalog and defeats the purpose of having an SSD drive. At night, I can put it on my desk and back it up to my two large hard drives. What are your thoughts? I have a Sony a7rii - 42MP and an Olympus OM-D 1 - 16MP but with the latest update it lets you stitch a ton of photos together - something my current computers aren't up for. I don't see going beyond the 42MP Sony and over the next five years plan to buy more lenses for both of my mirrorless cameras, so those needs shouldn't change, although I may dabble in video too - not sure. I just bought a new thunderbolt 2/USB-3 6TB G-Tech drive to replace a 4TB drive as my main photo library early last year (which gets backed up to a thunderbolt 1 RAID array and various firewire and usb-3 hard drives) and I know that I will need all kinds of pricey adapters to use with the new laptop. It's part of what kept me from upgrading earlier but I just feel that my current setup is keeping me from working efficiently and I worry every time I see that beach ball of death, babying this thing along as much as I can. Right now I feel stymied since working on my files is so very slow, especially with the latest upgrades to PS and LR. I also constantly find the 512GB SSD filling up and it drives me crazy - the idea of a laptop with enough room to carry around a good chunk of my portfolio no matter where I am is appealing. With my iMac, the 1 TB additional hard drive also fills up too fast. I work on large layered files a lot and also kept so many uncompressed tiffs - many of which I finally deleted just to pare things down. I didn't realize until some time last year that I could losslessly compress the tiff files using zip compression, so I have been going back through them as time permits. I have many old files that need to be worked on and many new ones on my current SD cards, so having a large hard drive on my laptop is worth the cost to me. I find wires attached to my laptop defeat the comfort of working on it. Wim - I saw what you said about Eizo monitors in the "laptop or desktop" thread and I will check them out assuming that they work with Macs and are available here in the US. Thanks again for any advice.
  6. Hello fellows, Someone noticed the new "Social" option within All images search box? I did not receive any notice yet about this. All images Photographs Vectors Illustrations Social (NEW, still empty) [UPDATE: Stockimo images] 360 images Footage See Live News
  7. Dear Contributors, I'm a new here (and in photography), have uploaded my first 100 RF images if anyone has critiques or advice on how to improve my portfolio quality they are most welcome Thank you Regards Eziz
  8. Hi all, Alamy was suggested to me by a fellow photographer , I have never done stock photography before but thought I would apply, to my surprise I passed th QC stage and now have just three images on my account. I look forward to uploading more over the coming days weeks and months, and may well be calling on you all for help and advise! Regards Lee
  9. Hello! I'm new here. I live in New Roads, La, love photography, filmmaking, and hiking. I just broke my leg so I haven't been able to pursue stock photography as actively recently. So far, I have been impressed with the quality of material on this forum, keep up the good work y'all!
  10. Hi Everyone. I'm not new to Alamy (I've been contributing for a while), but just joined the forums.
  11. Hi everyone. I didn't see (until too late) that you only need to submit 3 images for testing now on Alamy. I had submitted 8 images, and because some sites would like 10, I submitted 4 more. Then I got my QC result back saying 3 things-- one image was soft or lacking definition, digital camera was not suitable for Alamy (though it is the same camera I used for the other 11 photos) and Number of images listed on that photo in the batch of 8. The other 7 and the 4 from the 2nd batch all said, we need all 3 images to pass, this image will pass if resubmitted, but check images with a failure reason. If only that had come back a little more quickly before I submitted 4 instead of 3... So, now it says my account is Locked for uploads for 10 days?! So I can't get approved for 10 days because all my images were fine in the 2nd batch but I sent one too many for the system or person (?) that does the reviews??? Just wondering if there is anyone I can talk to, in case they can lift the freeze so I can resubmit any 3 images that were fine, without having to wait 10 days. Thanks for your time. Sincerely, Crystalheartpix
  12. Hello guys, I'm a 24 year old male student from cologne and just started to upload some pictures to Alamy. About 1 1/2 years ago I startet uploading some pictures I took with my smartphone to a german app called "Eyeem". Since then I uploaded about 500 random pictures without really thinking about my compositions and tags. If pictures pass the Quality-Chheck they are selected for a premium collection wich is accessable for Getty-Buyers. About 113 Pictures made it throug and earned me a total of 250 dollar over the last year. I now started to buy several photobooks and consumed a lot of online courses to step up my photography game (also switched from my Smartphone to Fuji X-E1). I'm also reading a lot in this forum to get an idea of what it takes to sell on Alamy. I now started to upload my first pictures. I really like alamy because of a it's low number of rejections and the community. I couldn't find any other stock plattform with such a nice and large community where everyone is welcome. I figured out that Alamy is mainly a platform to sale editorial pictures. I really like this idea and would like to start capturing editorial topics, but I'm not sure if Alamy is the right place to sell editorials from germany. So i would like to ask, if anyone of you has some experience with this topic or if you would advice me to upload to a german editorial stock agency instead. Stephen
  13. Hi! I've been on Alamy for only three months with about 60 approved images. No sales yet and I'm wondering if I'm missing a step or doing something wrong. Is there any way to generate more sales? Or is it sheer volume and I just need to upload a lot more images? I'd appreciate any suggestions for selling some stuff! Thanks!
