  1. Heya - I'm Alex, a passionate photographer. I recently uploaded my test submission, but I believe an error occurred, and I want to see if I can take it back. I only uploaded one image for my test submission and the image is already in QC. I believe that the system requires you to upload 3, but my one image automatically was sent to QC, and I can't upload any more images. However, it also isn't the image I want to upload - and I can't upload the other 2 images I need to upload, so I was hoping if I can take the image back and re-upload my images for my test submission. The ID of the i
  2. Hi, I’m Alex, a new user here at Alamy. My test submission images were rejected for no metadata, but how exactly do I add EXIF data to my images? Do I upload a new image with all the data, or is there a special place for me to input it?
  3. 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)
  4. Hi guys, looking for help from @John Richmond or another one of you plant geniuses. I took this photo of what I'm thinking are rose bushes they are a reddish pink with white centers so maybe not roses? Though the buds and the shape of the opening flowers certainly look like roses to me, as opposed to say some sort of peony. Taken in the spring in Annapolis, Maryland, USA, (on the grounds of the Naval Academy I believe). Any help you can provide much appreciated. Thanks! It will be 2AED59H when it goes on sale. I just added a tentative caption.
  5. What's the consensus on the Sony FE 24-105mm f/4 lens? I have been shooting with primes since I got my Sony A7rii about a year and a half ago. I have the Sony Zeiss 35mm f/2.8, the Sony Master FE 90mm f/2.8 macro, and a Rokinon 12mm fish-eye lens, and have also been using legacy Nikon and Olympus lenses with a couple of different adapters (the Zuiko 50mm, 28mm and 200mm's from my old OM-1 film days and my Nikon 20mm, 50mm and lensbaby). I like using primes and find that my favorite lens on the camera is the Nikon 20mm, with the 90mm Macro a close second. The 35mm is a great walkin
  6. Hi. I'm wondering if any of you can id this tree and the lichen growing on it? I took the shot on a cloudy day this past Sunday on my way home from opening our family cottage near the beach in Connecticut. It is growing by the backwaters, a tidal salt marsh fed by the Long Island Sound close to where it meets the Atlantic Ocean, just off the coast of Rhode Island. (We used to "surf" on a friend's canoe where the waters would get rough when I was a kid - a bunch of us balanced on the benches, winner was the last one standing). Anyway, I think it could be a fruit tree of
  7. I've had these up on Alamy for a while and realize that I never identified the species of sea star (or starfish to us old-time beachcombers). I did a ton of research and I mean I spent several hours searching online scientific databases as well as Alamy and SPL and other reputable sources and some of what I found must be wrong because these have been identified as a common sea star, which is apparently the same species as a Northern sea star, Asterias rubens also known as Asterias vulgarus a Forbes sea star, Asterias forbesi. The description of the Forbes sea star
  8. Hello everyone, Am I missing something , because looking at this it looks that I am really bad in math.... I was paid for my sells in feb. Last Paid was: February 11th Still I had a sale 28 February + March I asked alamy what happened with my payment . Here is the answer. You have made sales in March, but we can only pay you when these sales clear and your cleared balance is over $50.. What I don't understand is that when I look at sales, I think there is more than €50 (50 dollars/ 44€) So can anybody tell me if am going crazy here or if I am really miss u
  9. 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
  10. Hi Guys I ve just joined the alamy community and I would like to share with you my portfolio (I know there are only few photos at the moment, I just started ). My dad passed me his passion for photography and I m so excited to share my snaps with you. Feel free to have a look at my portfolio, any tips or suggestions are more than welcome! https://www.alamy.com/portfolio/mattlod Cheers
  11. Hi all. i am a member since last year. but i couldn't sell any images here. please give your ideas to sell my images. thanks
  12. I just started using Alamy, and after passing the test submission I submitted several submissions with about 50 photos in each one. On the first 4 submissions all of the photos were taken with a Nikon D750, but on the last couple there were a few photos mixed in that were shot with an iPhone and a point and shoot that I accidentally submitted. All of the photos were rejected the next day, including the first 4 submissions (that only used Nikon D750). In the email saying that the submissions failed QC, the reason was for a photo using the point and shoot in the third to last submission that the
  13. Hi everybody, I have got into stock photography about 8 months ago. I have joined Alamy and several other agencies since then. Even though I have made many sales on every single agency I have uploaded to, I still haven't made a single one on Allamy. I have only had 4 zooms in 8 months as well. I don't seem to understand what is the issue? Is it just really hard to sell on here or am I doing something wrong? Thanks to you all!!
  14. Hi Everyone Can anyone please take a look at my portfolio and just give me some idea where im going wrong. Ive been submitting now for 2 months and not had one single sale. I sell to other microstock sites and do ok, why I am not getting sales here. Is my portfolio just not good enough or is what I photograph more related to microstock and shall I stop wasting my time submitting here Thank you in advance - Steve
  15. Hello! So I have had several photos on Alamy for around a year now and even though all of them are on sale and optimised, I still don’t get much exposure at all and no sales. Does anyone have any tips for people like me or could help my photography get noticed? Thanks, -Dylan
  16. Hello! I just started uploading photos and want to say Hi! I'm new here and would love and appreciate any tips or feedback. I have seen experienced members critiquing new members on their portfolios to help guide them accordingly. I am wondering if someone might critique mine and be so kind to direct me on the right path. I'll start reading the forums too, but if anyone has any words of wisdom, newbie mistakes to avoid, I'd love to hear it. Thank you so much!!!, Felicia
  17. Hi Everyone Ive just joined up and really interested in making a go of it in the stock industry. I know we are all potentially competitors and I never really ask for critique on my personal photography as I find there is too many conflicting opinions out there, but as this industry is new to me and I have lots to learn, I was hoping you could look at what I have uploaded so far and let me know what you think, are my images good enough for stock, what can I do to improve. Many thanks in advance Steve
  18. Hello there, Roughly 30 minutes ago, I received an e-mail that my photos have passed through QC (this is my first time). I filled in the required title and tags for these photos and now they are marked as 'On Sale'. But when I go to my dashboard, these same photos are still marked as 'Not on Sale', neither can I find these photos on Alamy. Does Alamy need some more time to process them to put them the website and everything is fine or am I doing something wrong? Thanks in advance. Robbe
  19. Hi, I'm Robbe Nagel and I'm new to this platform. I'm a student who loves to shoot with analog camera's (using film of course). I notice that this platform is naturally dominated by digital camera's but I was wondering whether or not I can sell my analog photos. Can anyone help me out here? I use a very high end photoscanner, so when it comes to quality of the image there must be no problem whatsoever.
  20. I've recently purchased a Sony A7r and am now considering lens options. My main interest is FL 35/50mm with 75mm occasionally. The Zeiss "top of the range" selection is out of my budget and I wonder what would you consider a suitable quality lens (or two) within the "more affordable" bracket. Maybe a zoom, maybe primes. I have no idea of Sony lenses and your advices would be most appreciated. Thanks Ray
  21. hola soy nuevo, subi mi primeras tres fotos y me dieron fallo y luego sin querer subi las mimas tres y ahora no me deja cambiarlo ni subir otras y no se si me bloquearon o que paso? si alguien me puede ayudar
  22. When you are preparing your DACS claim and your image has been used in both hardcover and paperback books with different ISBN numbers, do you count each as a separate use or as one use? I've been counting them as one, but I think I'm wrong. With the deadline approaching hope someone can help. Thanks!
  23. Hi all, I've joined Alamy for a while now (since late 2013) and have slowly posted slightly over 1000 photos. Have always been wanting to seek advise here but decided to do it only after I have enough photos. Really appreciate if you could take some time out and take a quick look and see where I should work on and improve further. :-D I am not quite sure if I am moving along the right track. I suspect my keywording can be improved further and maybe also my photos need some culling? My ranking also does not appear to be very high. From the forums, I gathered that it is probably a lot more impor
  24. How do I upload an avatar to the forum? Can I do it via dropbox somehow? At one point I had two accounts on Alamy - one for reportage and one for commercial way back when they required me to do it that way, and I had an avatar in the forum. When Alamy later combined the two for me into my reportage (newer) account, I had to re-join the forum and haven't been able to upload an avatar. Thanks for your help!
  25. I just joined Alamy last month and have been very busy uploading images so thought it was time to stop by and say hello to everyone and try out this discussions page. Not expectantly I haven't made a sale yet but these are early days and my portfolio is still building. Any suggestions or advice on the way ahead would be appreciated. Already having a problem with this post, tried to add an image but 'My Media' only has an attachment section so help please, how do I add an image?, can't find any guidance on the searches.
