  1. 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!
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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?
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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!
  8. 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. :-)
  9. Just want to say hello,i am a newbie on this site,and after 5 attempts Alamy has passed my photos to sell,i am really happy and hope to be able to have more photos accepted,anyone else just started on alamy?
  10. Dear Peeps at Alamy, Just an idea but wouldn't it be useful to be able to keyword photos in the QC approval queue? It might be wasted effort, if they eventually failed QC, but think of the potential time saved in being able to keyword photos while they sit in purgatory. What do people think?
  11. Sales are happening once in a while in months. How can I increase it ? I categorized the photos into albums,but the most I got was just views.
  12. Does anyone know why Alamy hasn't brought out the app for Android users? Is it in the works for us, in the future. I mean 85% of the world is a fairly large segment that's locked out?
  13. Greetings, Which license would you say is most effective to use on your photos when selling wildlife photos? I am talking about mostly factual, unedited wildlife photography. Many thanks
  14. Hi there, I'm having a hard time submitting my pictures. I have done couple of times, but I'm still not sure about how it works exactly. Some of my edited pictures went to "on sale", some just won't even go to "ready". I have tried FAQ, but there is not much about this exact part of the process I need. That is all it says about it: "Choose how you want to send your images to us – online upload or FTP Once your images are uploaded, our Quality Control team will check them" I'm good until editing. After that is the problem. I'm not sure what to do exactly to have the submitted pictures to be reviewed. Can you help me with that? ​Thank you for your help,​
  15. 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.
  16. Hi everyone, I need a little help to make my photos more visible to buyers and would really appreciate an honest critique of my uploaded photos and keywords if you are willing to spare the time. I joined in 2009 and only have 133 photos for sale, a paltry number I know, so uploading regularly is my first way to improve visibility. I have sold three photos ( not a lot I know ) whilst having only 66 photos on the site, so I feel I can produce salable work. I tend to photograph in my local area of Salisbury and the New Forest, UK. Weymouth, the Jurassic coast and Southampton are also potential areas of industry, docklands and landscapes to source new material for Alamy. I rarely travel abroad so travel subjects will be few and far between unless my circumstances change. I now use the Canon 6D and L lenses and have had success with Alamy's QC process on a more regular basis. This has been encouraging in itself so I'm more inclined to add to the millions of photos already on here:) I'm aware the stock industry is a saturated field and prices are almost rock bottom but my photos are better up for sale than hidden away on my hard drive. Thank you in advance for your time and comments. Alan.
  17. Does anyone know if Alamy's market share and total annual revenue is growing? This would be useful to know as the number of photos online continues its steady growth. That info was provided until a few years ago, but I suppose it was something they didn't have to offer in the first place. Just wondering if we're shooting to maintain our position or if the pie is growing. Regards Paul
