  1. My first submissions were rejected. Too soft and no definition. Also on was too shakey. The photos were 71 DPI and need to be 300 DPI. I used the noise tool in LR. Concert photos are a different phot depending on the environment. We all have our way of shooting. I want to sell well known musicians. Where do I submit them, archival/reportage? Is the first submission to check out your work? Also, how do I add a URL to a photo on my hard-drive? My photos: Instagram https://www.instagram.com/drummer_photographer/ Website http:// www.//drummerphotographer.com Thank you and I look forward to meeting you! George
  2. Hi, I am Ahmad, 24 Years old full time Developer, part time Blogger and enthusiastic Photographer.
  3. Hi there! I recently signed up and now my first images passed and I put them up for sale. It would be awesome if you guys could tell me what you think of my Mavic Air 2S drone shots of Switzerland and if they fit the criteria! Thanks in advance! Dylan
  4. Hi I am hoping to encourage my husband to add his photos to Alamy but thought I would try things out for myself in the first instance and sadly, that hasn't gone too well :( My husband has two Leica cameras - VLux 14 and DLux 9. He tells me he takes his photos in jpeg in 3:2 ratio He used the free Lightroom App on his ipad to edit his photos. When I upload the photos after editing via Lightroom they appear to be too small for the Alamy QC test I don't know too much about photography so I have no idea what I am doing wrong.... I don't quite understand the lingo either which is not helping :) I have checked the Lightroom app and turned off the 'smart' preview but this didn't make any difference..... Is there a setting in the camera or is it just the fact that I should use the full version of Lightroom. I really would appreciate any advice. Thank you
  5. Hiya, i am new to Alamy and to photography. I am an amator candid photo taker willing to improve. For the moment only taki g pictures from my mobile as I am not sure which camera to buy on a budget. Please feel free to comments and give me feedback once I put pics up
  6. 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.
  7. New to Alamy as of today. I have a love for photography and wanting to create positive use out of it.
  8. Hi! I'm an amateur photographer from Romania. I found out about Alamy only recently and have uploaded 12 photos so far. My favorite subjects are cities, architecture and landscape. I've been wanting to practice my street photography a bit more, but I don't want to stress people out by taking photos of them. Maybe you can recommend some lenses for street photography? I use a Pentax k-70 mainly with wide lens which I found very useful when taking photos of narrow alleys or buildings. I also have a 35 mm with a manual focus, but I don't use it that much. Please feel free to visit my page and offer some feedback! Any advice is welcome.
  9. Hi! Im a brand new contributor to Alamy. (Ive been a photographer for about 5 years now.) My specialty is macro nature photography and landscape. Do you have any tips on how to get your first sale? I know not to expect to make a lot of money on here, but I do want to at least make a couple dollars a week. Here is my portfolio: https://www.alamy.com/portfolio/691013.html
  10. I sent tree images, all accepted, but only one is for sale. Why? What does this means? Regards
  11. Hello everyone, Just a small introduction: I'm hobbyist photographer from in Lithuania. Came here in a search of making some extra cash from my hobby. I have tried before some micro stock agencies, but it is looks like what I shoot does not suite them well. Hope will do better here. Travel a lot in my free time and for work. Feel free to check out my uploaded pictures and some good will critics and suggestion are more then welcome. https://www.alamy.com/portfolio/111885.html Alex
  12. Just wanted to say hello everyone! I'm new to the forum and quite new to Alamy, I had my first sales in last couple of months and I'm very excited. I like to travel and travel photography has always been my passion. I hope to improve my skills.
  13. Hi All Just joined and hope to try and sell some pics, only been taking pictures on a SLR for a few months now and love it, once I gain a greater confidence I will look to upgrade my kit, at the moment just got the Kit Canon 1300d with a Wide angle and Zoom. Hoping to find and share advice on here. Thanks All
  14. Hello, everyone. Just joined Alamy. I am currently in Ottawa and do not have experience in stock photography. I am amateur photographer, but hope for luck. Look forward to being a part of Alamy community. Regards, Oleh
  15. Just a quick hello from another serious amateur/pretend professional joining the Alamy ranks. My prime camera is a D7200 and I am usually using a sigma 70 - 300 mm. I have accidentally landed into doing mostly football shots (few if any will be coming on here) but also enjoy nature, events, and news if I find out about it in time. My first 3 shots were accepted OK. I tend to have opinions on things. Oh, and I am female.
  16. Hello I thought I would introduce myself after signing up late last week! My name is Stephen, I'm a hobby photographer based in Aberdeen, Scotland, UK. I received my current camera (Canon 700D) as a Christmas present a couple of years ago. Although I got the camera a while back I have only really started concentrating on my photography skills around May last year, and pursuing it as a serious hobby. I have had my eye on signing up as a stock contributor since Autumn last year, however I never had the confidence in my skills and questioned whether I would even pass QC! Last week I decided I shouldn't avoid it any longer and decided to prepare some images and submit then and see what happens, I was delighted they passed through QC! Hopefully in the coming weeks and months I will have filled out my catalogue quite a bit, currently trawling through my images over the last year and picking out what I want to add! I will no doubt be looking to the forum for help or advice from time to time, I will appreciate that support, and in time can hopefully return the favor. Thanks Stephen
  17. Hi all, I've already picked up on some useful info by reading the posts in this forum, in fact just confirmed to myself that that the poor discoverability thing is a little nuts by reading a post, after a little search. So, first 3 now on sale, hoping that AIM isn't spot on about them being discovered..... Photographer for 40 ish years now, mostly nature, landscape, closeup, plus some urban. Used to be with OSF, till bought, then bought, and bought up. Spent around 12 years teaching photography intro to adult education. Hope I can pass on any help here if I have an answer, to repay the help I've taken advantage of. Maybe I'll someday understand the pseudo thing before I nod off reading about it! Cheers Marsh
  18. Hello everyone: I just got my initial QC clearance. I went and annotated the 3 pictures and after a bit of struggling, I managed to push the Discoverability bar into the green zone. However, my pictures are still not showing for sale. What am I missing? I will really appreciate your help. Thank you. MVS
  19. Hi all, I am a newbie from Cardiff and have recently started uploading images to Alamy after a friend recommended it. I am interested in landscape and outdoor photography. I will make sure to read the forums for any possible Q&A that I might have!!!

    Hello from SoCal, USA

    Hello world. I'm new here. I've been taking mostly nature shots since I started hiking the last 10 yrs or so, so I have lots of pix to upload. I only have a few up now but will continue to upload when I can. Any comments and critiques are welcome. Thank you in advance.
