  1. The "Live News" section is grayed out for me, on the upload page on Alamy web site; the "Stock" and "Reportage/Archival" sections are working normally. Also, I don't see a "live news" folder when logging in via FTP (to newsupload.alamy.com). I am approved for live news contributions. Anyone know why that is?
  2. Hey there, are anyone else's uploads going extremely slow right now or is it just me? Currently struggling along about 4-5 minutes per megabyte, so for a batch of 450 images, my FTP client is estimating an upload time of 145 hours! Tried uploading via browser as well, it's no different. Speedtest.net reveals no issues with my ISP 😕
  3. Hello, I am applying to be a contributor and I am having and issue with my second test submission. (I failed the first one because an image was sub par) (I appreciate alamy's high standards for image quality) I was up loading my three images and for some reason only two of them submitted. If there is a way I am able to get the third image to you folks or if there is a way to retract my submission so that I can upload all three please let me know. The submission number is OL9816239 I believe. If there is more relevant information or questions I can provide please let me know. Thank you for your time.
  4. My first go here on alamy, and I have my photos all ready, am trying my first upload for technical approval, and all I get in a spinning blue disc, never any sign of upload actually happening... Am I doing something wrong?? I have tried multiple times, on two different computers, two different browsers (chrome and edge), two different, perfectly fast internet connections, and my photos are definitely JPEGs of the 4-6MB size, yet nothing happens. Just a spinning blue disc ... Any help much appreciated!
  5. Both AIM and FTP don't seem to be working for me right now. I've tried connecting to different WiFi, same result. Is anyone else having issues? Thank you
  6. Hi again! I'm sure this has already been answered. But I'm working on some autumn images with really intense reds and yellows. The images look fine in Lightroom, but when I export as JPEGs the saturation just looks too much (I'm looking at the JPEGs in Microsoft "Photos", the default programme in Windows). So first question, when I upload to Alamy, are the thumbnails going to look like my JPEGs in Microsoft "Photos" or like what I'm seeing in Lightroom? Second question, what does a customer see when they download? Same as what I'm seeing if they open in "Photos" or in Lightroom? Is this just a really stupid question and it just depends which photo viewer you use? Presumably clients will be using an array of different photo viewers.... Steve
  7. I am new here so please forgive me if this has already been asked. I did a search and didn't get any hits. How do you upload a filled out model release. I can't find how to do this anywhere. Probably just like in a store when you ask an employee where to find something and it's been under your nose the whole time. Ha ha When I am managing my photos I see where I can select an existing MR to apply it to the photo, but I can't find out how to get my MR there to select. Thanks in advance for your help!
  8. Greetings everyone. Been an active stock photographer on other platforms, I am a new contributor to Alamy. Recently I got confused as I didn't find a button or link to add image(s) to an existing submission. An amateur landscape/cityscape photographer, usually I would shoot around 100+ photos in raw format every time going outdoors. Then I would post-process, classify and upload them with several times in a slow pace. It's quite inconvenient being unable to supplement a submission. Can anyone tell me how to add images to an existing submission in the Alamy image manager portal? Thanks.
  9. Have uploaded 3 illustrations to start but they failed QC because they had borders. I can't delete them, they are just listed as failed and appear in my dashboard. Now when i go to upload some new photos (after searching for photos that will fit Alamy's criteria!), the upload screen just jumps from step 1 to step 3 saying "thanks for uploading" BUT I haven't had the chance (in step 2) to upload anything!!
  10. I was half way through an upload when the FTP sever stopped working and now I cannot reconnect to server. Anyone else having issues with the FTP upload?
  11. What the heck is going on, Alamy? I uploaded 6 images this morning, only 3 went through. I decided to delete the ones that were trying and trying to load. Got a message the three were waiting to be looked at, usually within 24 hours. Fine... usual stuff, but when I checked my AIM this afternoon, no images were to be found. I`m still pretty new to Alamy, but even with my few uploads, everything went smoothly. Is anyone else having uploading issues today?
  12. Hi, I am new on Alamy, I am filmmaker and would like to upload footage. But I can't see any option to upload for approval.
  13. Anyone having uploading issues at present? Several times today I've uploaded new images, clicked the Finish button and everything crashes. Other times I've uploaded and clicked the Finish button and only half my images go to QC. Anyone have any idea why this is happening or if there is a fix?
  14. I'm a new user of ftp, and have been using filezilla for a few weeks. But in the past week, it seems to upload all my files, though (1) some of the files will remain in the server window on the right after filezilla reports successful transfer of all files, and (2) most or all of those files still showing in the server window do not show up on the alamy (or other agency) site. This is happening both for uploads to Alamy and to another site, so I don't THINK it's an alamy problem. To solve it, I'm having to delete those files still showing on the server side, re-select, and do a second upload. Sometimes it has taken more than one "re-do" to get them all to show on the agency website. Are others experiencing this? Am I doing something wrong? Would appreciate feedback.
  15. Nine out of ten times that I try to upload an image I get the message Error Invalid Parameters. Super frustrating. Could someone fix this issue? I must be a glutton for punishment because I keep shooting stock images with my cell phone then attempt to upload them. Stockimo is a huge waste of time and effort - why bother spending all that time typing in a description, then adding keywords only to have all that work tossed?
  16. I uploaded 51 images yesterday but they are still processing with grey boxes. I should have uploaded just a few at a time, I know, but I forgot. Now I am not sure what to do. In the past if I reuploaded, some of the orignal ones eventually came in and then I had two of some images, which is a mess. I wish I could just delete the ones I uploaded or clear them some way and start over. Should I just assume that those are forever stuck and re-upload, or just wait indefintely to see if they go away or something? When I did that before (yes, I should have learned my lesson) it took weeks or months for them to go away. I'd like to know how Alamy would want me to handle this situation or how other contributers do it. Thanks.
  17. I'm new to ALAMY. Just signed in and I was looking around. I read I could upload my photos on ALAMY's website through MyAlamy and Upload. The thing is that I can't see any Upload button on MyAlamy... Can anyone help me out? Thanks in advance
  18. I’ve probably had two of the hardest months I can remember, excluding chemo and radiation 14 years ago. Moving is for the young. During that time, I took a few “moving” snaps, but didn’t even have time to transfer them from the card to the Mac. I had to keep the house show-ready for 5 months and get out of the house while it was bring shown. Dealing with a husband with dementia who, when I left a room perfect, blinds open, lamps on, came along behind me and undid everything I had done. Stress and I became close companions. Soon after moving in, I became ill and was pretty worthless for 2 weeks. I still haven’t found needed things. There must be 50 boxes still waiting to be unpacked. Then there’s unpacking and arranging the garage. Never used to be my domain, but it is now. It is with great delight that I finally downloaded my card yesterday, vetted and developed 12 and uploaded them last night. They passed this morning and I finally feel like I’m back in the game. Glory be. Betty
  19. Good morning everyone Sorry for my english, I use the translator. To upload images to alamy and other agencies, I use the picworlflow program. All right until a few days ago. A few days ago I can not find the photos in alamy to be then indexed. I contacted the picworkflow service and they tell me that it turns out that the images are at destination or on alamy. Did any of you have this problem? Can anyone help me? It is my first intervention in the alamy forum and I have been registered for a year on alamy with four sales. My portfolio is about 2000 images. Thank you
  20. I was wondering if photos taken on an IPhone should be exclusively uploaded via stockimo app, or can you also upload them via alamy on the computer ?
  21. Just curious, how many photos do you upload at a time? Being that if one fails they all fail. For now I have been doing about 5 a day. Thanks, Chester
  22. Hi folks: I am trying to upload and getting red "upload error" sign this Sunday evening. Never had this before. And it isn't to do with size. Anyone else?? Thank you, Kathy
  23. I updated my iphone6 to IOS 11.0.1 last week. Since then I haven't been able to upload any images. It looks like it is about to uplaaod after I have entered all the caption and tags etc but nothing uploads. Is it just me?
  24. I posted a post on this subject earlier today but can't find it now so I'm starting a new one, sorry. Basically using IM, my uploads were stalling all the time. The circling thingy never stopping. In a small batch one or two might make it then it stalls. Doing it one at a time often stalls. So I tried FTP using Filezilla. Got a couple in OK but when I returned to add another the \stock folder was empty and I couldn't drag any images into it like before. So FTP is flaky too. I can see that managing many hundreds of uploads from across the world demands a lot of resources at Alamy's end, but this can't be news to them! Anyone else having these problems and can Alamy comment please?
  25. More of a minor annoyance than real problem but if I upload say 20 photos then end up with a split between a number of Alami IDs. This is both with FTP and Alamy upload. Before all the changes this was never happening. I don't know if its my relatively slow upload speed from the ISP as I see a lot of Alamy server timeouts in the logs, if its some setting I have wrong, or if it is now just the norm. What are others seeing?
