Hiya, There is something wrong with an upload. If I click its entry on the left hand side of the image manager everything is approved and there is all of my keywording displaying. BUT, if I click All Submissions, All of the images from this one upload all say “processing”. I hope you can sort this out for me please, without me having to delete them all and start again!
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?
I've been an Alamy contributor for over 10 years, but I'm getting tired of carrying around my big Canon SLR and an assortment of lenses. I recently purchased a small, versatile Sony digital camera (DSCHX90V/B) to use when I take occasional trips abroad. In my opinion, the images are just as sharp (or better) than the ones from my SLR, but they've been rejected by Alamy QC. Is anyone familiar with this camera? Any suggestions for a small, versatile camera so I no longer have to carry a heavy bag full of lenses? Thanks.
