Hello, I am new to Alamy and only joined the forum today, seeking advice on submitting. My question is about scanned Kodachromes, which I am sure have interest. I use a Nikon Coolscan V ED and Photoshop/Lightroom for post-scan processing. I recently submitted a few but every one was rejected immediately, stating the "camera" was unknown. I woyld be interested, and would value, the thoughts of the collective here on how to successfully submit. Thank you.
I have a Epson V700 scanner with which I used to scan 6x6 transparencies and 6x6 BW negatives ten years or so ago (using XP windows). I haven’t touched the scanner for now maybe good 6-7ish years. I am now thinking about shooting films again occasionally for pure pleasure. (Everybody deserves some pleasures in life, doesn’t he? ) Of course I will continue to shoot digital for stock. I would like to ask a few questions to seasoned scanner users as follows. (Now I use a iMac Sierra (10.12)) This morning I downloaded Epson’s latest software/driver for V700. The interface doesn’t seem to be evolved at all and it looks the same and rather dated. Does the current ‘Digital ICE Technology’ work better than say 5-6 years ago? I was not very successful with this feature before, but I am wondering it has been improved over the intervening years. Is SilverFast far superior to Epson’ own software? If so, SilverFast SE 8 will suffice? Or SiverFast SE Plus is required? Is SilverFast’s iSRD better at getting rid of dusts than Digital ICE ? What used to get me down with scanning was dust removal. Replies and any tips and advices will be very much appreciated. Sung
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
