I find the selection process strange. I uploaded 3 test photos only to have them rejected. OK, one of them was my fault as it was an experimental image and was rejected due to over manipulation. I accept that, however, the other 2 were rejected due to being "soft or lacking definition" The portrait was intentionally soft as I wanted to capture my model in a "dreamy" state. The other, rafting on the Isar Canal, I just don*t understand the rejection at all. I am a contributor to Getty as well as Adobe. It puzzles me that when Getty and Adobe accept my images why should they be rejected by alamy? I view Getty as the benchmark. I am not afraid of criticism where it is warranted, indeed it helps in improving my work, but the rejection of the remaining 2 images more than puzzles me.
rifasg posted a topic in Stock photography discussion and contributor experienceHi, Does anyone know what's the criteria Alamy uses to classify images under the Creative category in oppose to the Relevancy one? Is it controlled by the search engine or is it a decision made by editors in Alamy? Thanks, Gabriel Rif
