  1. My travel bucket list appears to be getting longer and longer whilst at the same time my mortal coil continues to unwind at a predictable but alarming rate (at least that is how it appears to me). All of which got me thinking about prioritising places to visit. Where would you go and what would you photograph if money was no object? I started to compile a list but then gave up when I realised how oversaturated the travel photography market is. Any bright ideas, anyone?
  2. Personally I would find it useful if there was a field associated with each photo that recorded the number of times that the photo had sold and, ideally, its max, min and average price. That way it would be easier to remove photos that were not selling from each portfolio. :-)
  3. I want to stop the sale of my photos and hide it from the Alamy website(temporarily), without removing its metadata (tags, caption, etc) or deleting the photos. Is this possible? or do i need to just delete them?
  4. 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.
  5. Hi, I am new to stock photography, basically because I like to learn a lot about photography, experiment, etc. and I thought why not start something that eventually throws out a few bucks. I am not sure if this is still possible from 2019 or if agencies took over and an individual amateur photographer has no chance at all to gain visibility. However, as a start I am asking myself the following question: Should I focus on quantity (shoot/upload as many good photos as possible) or on trend by shooting only specific required photos? Usually stock platforms even give hints on what kind of photos and motives are requested. What is your suggestion on that? Markus
  6. Photos from the California wildfires. I thought there was some great photography in this slideshow, worth sharing. https://www.sfgate.com/california-wildfires/article/Kincade-Fire-now-60-contained-Sonoma-County-14638321.php
  7. Hello All:) Over the past few days of trying to manoeuvre around the Alamy site, I've done a reasonable imitation of Daffy Duck...who would have probably thrown his laptop out the window in a fit of grand annoyance, with steam coming out of his ears!:) Prior to all of that I read everything available on how to get around the site, submit photos, etc.. Nobody likes to look stupid, or like they haven't done their homework; for some reason, I'm finding it difficult to move around Alamy's site. A few minutes ago, I tried submitting another 3 photos that were rejected because of the 2 accompanying photos...I wound up submitting only 1 of the 3! Twice!! Any pointers would be appreciated!:) Thanks!
  8. Hello everyone, I'm a beginner. I uploaded my 3 first photos who were passed Quality Control. I filled in and saved the informations for these photos 2 days ago. Now they still aren't on sale status. So I would like to know if it's normal. Should I continue to wait a bit more? Thanks a lot! (Sorry for my english)
  9. Hello, I am new in Photography but have gotten heavily into it. I take photo's daily as much as possible and spend a great deal of time learning how to post process the photo's in Photoshop better and learning the in's and out's of the program. I'm left with a few questions after going through countless other photo's from good photographers. First, I notice their photo's are crystal clear and usually devoid of noise. I've tried using reduce noise to reduce the noise in my photo's, as well as using a small surface blur, and even tried using a second layer with the image on top of the first layer as overlay or screen to increase contrast. I've tried using high pass also. While those things seem to work to a minor degree (Nomatter what I put the settings to) the images don't turn out like what I see with the professionals. While they look nice, if zoomed in to max resolution you see issues. If I use reduce noise or blur to fix the noise, it becomes too blurry. I'm using a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge to shoot photo's, using pro mode so that I have as much control as possible and even doing zoom manually to get the sharpest picture possible. I have the ISO setting at 50 or 100, sometimes 200 if it's dark. I realize shooting with a high ISO will cause noise so I keep it as low as possible and try to shoot in well lit area's. I adjust the shutter speed to allow only as much light as necessary to avoid blurry pictures, and in the settings I tell the camera to save the raw dng files so that I have more to work with post processing. I realize I need a better camera, but I don't have enough money at the moment to upgrade. I was hoping to make money with what I have so that I could buy a professional DSLR camera. So, the questions I have for you guys are: 1.) What is the best entry level camera? I don't have a lot of money to spend, but I need something better than this Smartphone I imagine. I've read the best entry level is the Nikon D3300 or D3400. 2.) How much better is an entry level DSLR over a Galaxy S6 Edge? Will the photo quality improve greatly? 3.) What kind of post processing in Photoshop do you normally do to make images look their best? Are there any good tips on making images crisp/clear and noise/artifact free? Thank you in advance for your help!
  10. Hello, I am from Venezuela. I have been uploading photos to ALAMY and Stockimo. Most of these photos can be found looking up "Vicente Quintero". I am able to take a lot of outdoor photos in Caracas. I would like to collaborate with foreign journalist. I studied Political Science here in Venezuela. Kind regards, Vicente Quintero
  11. Dear All, I am very new and gave only 3 photographs for sale.After 2 days I find that my images are on sale with Poor Discoverability! How do I increase or covert it to Good or Optimized? Would be grateful if I get the advice! Thanks in advance Best Abhijit
  12. My browser crashed when I was submitting my 3 test photos, and it apparently only submitted 1/3 and I can't go back and upload the other 2. Is there a way to reset my "Test Photo" submission, or do I have to wait the 48 hours to try again?
  13. Hi, Please can someone help me change my files in Lightroom to a larger file size as I can't upload some of my photos to this website All photos were shot in raw, but I think post edit has made the file size small? Thanks
  14. Hi there, I'm using My Alamy Homepage to browse through my uploads. There are 15 photos showns on one page, is there any possibility of changing the number of pictures / page? Rgds, Martin
  15. Having difficulty with first three photo uploads. I've read the information from Alamy regarding technical specifications and QC. My experienced technical team created image files to these specifications, with EXIF and metadata in the file names, but we keep getting the message that the EXIF information must be present. We're stumped. Can anyone offer suggestions? Thank you!
