After researching many sites, Alamy seems to have more contributors that share my love of history and archival material. I am excited to be a part of the community and look forward to approval so I can begin sharing my history. 35+ years of collecting and so excited to find this outlet where this historic content can reach people that will be able to use it. Hoping to engage another generation in love of history!
I've uploaded some photos that were scanned from medium-format transparency film, and, given that they were old images and I was uncertain how scanned film would work with QC, I bypassed it by using the "Archival Upload" option. Later on, after reading some threads here, I uploaded some images from the same camera/film/scanner as regular stock images and they passed QC. Of course, the ones designated as Archival include the proviso, "This image could have imperfections as it’s either historical or reportage." Member Services has advised me that designations cannot be changed, so I would need to delete the images and re-upload them as stock. My question is whether you think the caveat about imperfections would limit sales potential, so deletion and re-uploading would be worth it. Thanks for any input, Don P.S., E9EC8A E9EC7N E9ETJ7 F7DY40 F7DY4A edit: typo
I supply 19th century and early 20th century archival images to Alamy, but there is no way for Alamy customers seeking only these kinds of images to search for them. Why can't Alamy add "archival" and date range options to the serch menu? I believe you could increase sales for these kinds of images if you made them easier to find.
Hello, everybody. Yesterday I uploaded a number of photos to Alamy Live News. The batch was removed from the Alamy New line so I made a conclusion that it was rejected as a news and added to QC queue as an editorial media. Today I received an automated note from Alamy that my media has passed QC as an archival/reportage photos. So, where to find those Archival/reportage photos? They did not appear in my portfolio. How to get to them in Alamy. I applied for Archival/reportage photos only today. What to do? How to see my archival/reportage photos (and photos of others) Are they on sale? Where?
