  1. Footage Upload

    Hi, I am new on Alamy, I am filmmaker and would like to upload footage. But I can't see any option to upload for approval.
  2. Uploading issues

    Anyone having uploading issues at present? Several times today I've uploaded new images, clicked the Finish button and everything crashes. Other times I've uploaded and clicked the Finish button and only half my images go to QC. Anyone have any idea why this is happening or if there is a fix?
  3. Filezilla problems, I think

    I'm a new user of ftp, and have been using filezilla for a few weeks. But in the past week, it seems to upload all my files, though (1) some of the files will remain in the server window on the right after filezilla reports successful transfer of all files, and (2) most or all of those files still showing in the server window do not show up on the alamy (or other agency) site. This is happening both for uploads to Alamy and to another site, so I don't THINK it's an alamy problem. To solve it, I'm having to delete those files still showing on the server side, re-select, and do a second upload. Sometimes it has taken more than one "re-do" to get them all to show on the agency website. Are others experiencing this? Am I doing something wrong? Would appreciate feedback.
  4. Nine out of ten times that I try to upload an image I get the message Error Invalid Parameters. Super frustrating. Could someone fix this issue? I must be a glutton for punishment because I keep shooting stock images with my cell phone then attempt to upload them. Stockimo is a huge waste of time and effort - why bother spending all that time typing in a description, then adding keywords only to have all that work tossed?
  5. I uploaded 51 images yesterday but they are still processing with grey boxes. I should have uploaded just a few at a time, I know, but I forgot. Now I am not sure what to do. In the past if I reuploaded, some of the orignal ones eventually came in and then I had two of some images, which is a mess. I wish I could just delete the ones I uploaded or clear them some way and start over. Should I just assume that those are forever stuck and re-upload, or just wait indefintely to see if they go away or something? When I did that before (yes, I should have learned my lesson) it took weeks or months for them to go away. I'd like to know how Alamy would want me to handle this situation or how other contributers do it. Thanks.
  6. Uploading photos

    I'm new to ALAMY. Just signed in and I was looking around. I read I could upload my photos on ALAMY's website through MyAlamy and Upload. The thing is that I can't see any Upload button on MyAlamy... Can anyone help me out? Thanks in advance
  7. Finally, an upload

    I’ve probably had two of the hardest months I can remember, excluding chemo and radiation 14 years ago. Moving is for the young. During that time, I took a few “moving” snaps, but didn’t even have time to transfer them from the card to the Mac. I had to keep the house show-ready for 5 months and get out of the house while it was bring shown. Dealing with a husband with dementia who, when I left a room perfect, blinds open, lamps on, came along behind me and undid everything I had done. Stress and I became close companions. Soon after moving in, I became ill and was pretty worthless for 2 weeks. I still haven’t found needed things. There must be 50 boxes still waiting to be unpacked. Then there’s unpacking and arranging the garage. Never used to be my domain, but it is now. It is with great delight that I finally downloaded my card yesterday, vetted and developed 12 and uploaded them last night. They passed this morning and I finally feel like I’m back in the game. Glory be. Betty
  8. loading images. Help

    Good morning everyone Sorry for my english, I use the translator. To upload images to alamy and other agencies, I use the picworlflow program. All right until a few days ago. A few days ago I can not find the photos in alamy to be then indexed. I contacted the picworkflow service and they tell me that it turns out that the images are at destination or on alamy. Did any of you have this problem? Can anyone help me? It is my first intervention in the alamy forum and I have been registered for a year on alamy with four sales. My portfolio is about 2000 images. Thank you
  9. Just curious, how many photos do you upload at a time? Being that if one fails they all fail. For now I have been doing about 5 a day. Thanks, Chester
  10. Hi folks: I am trying to upload and getting red "upload error" sign this Sunday evening. Never had this before. And it isn't to do with size. Anyone else?? Thank you, Kathy
  11. I updated my iphone6 to IOS 11.0.1 last week. Since then I haven't been able to upload any images. It looks like it is about to uplaaod after I have entered all the caption and tags etc but nothing uploads. Is it just me?
  12. Upload issues again

    I posted a post on this subject earlier today but can't find it now so I'm starting a new one, sorry. Basically using IM, my uploads were stalling all the time. The circling thingy never stopping. In a small batch one or two might make it then it stalls. Doing it one at a time often stalls. So I tried FTP using Filezilla. Got a couple in OK but when I returned to add another the \stock folder was empty and I couldn't drag any images into it like before. So FTP is flaky too. I can see that managing many hundreds of uploads from across the world demands a lot of resources at Alamy's end, but this can't be news to them! Anyone else having these problems and can Alamy comment please?
  13. More of a minor annoyance than real problem but if I upload say 20 photos then end up with a split between a number of Alami IDs. This is both with FTP and Alamy upload. Before all the changes this was never happening. I don't know if its my relatively slow upload speed from the ISP as I see a lot of Alamy server timeouts in the logs, if its some setting I have wrong, or if it is now just the norm. What are others seeing?
  14. When metadata is requested, is it enough to send Alamy just the EXIF data such as that at the following URL/example: http://jbrish.com/temp-3/ Will this suffice as the metadata requested for first uploads? If not, what other information would be needed? After first uploads, should metadata continue to be used? Thank you for your consideration. Regards, JBRoss
  15. deleting upload

    FTP was playing up a few weeks ago so by mistake I uploaded 4 images twice. How do I delete them? I only have the option to keyword them so they are still sitting in my 'images not online' area. I know the answer will be obvious to everyone else but so far not to me! Thank you for your help!
  16. Hi, I uploaded two failed submissions in a row. My last submission is still coming up as in quality control whenever I try to upload again. It is almost 20 days since my last attempt and I'm not sure if I've been locked out or something. If you know anything about what to do now it would be appreciated. Thanks Alex
  17. While uploading a batch today, all was going fine. Then I noticed one of the images that had been uploaded had an X at the top. No other images had it, the upload was still underway. I assumed there was an error with that image. Yet once they showed up in QC, the image is there with the rest. Anyone else seeing that happen? I'm curious what the X meant. Betty
  18. Hi Guys, I uploaded some picture (a batch of 10). Once done I checked them on the AIM and the preview give me different images; they are not mine at all (soccer players)!?! The file names are correct and I will see once they are approved if it is ok. I was guessing it was an issue with my MAC, I tried on my iPAD and same issue... Someone faced this already? Regards,
  19. Hello there! I'm a new photographer from the Netherlands. I've got a question about the QC. What is meant by "JPEG over 17 MB"? Does it mean I need to uncompress my photos before I upload them, or does it mean the maximum file size is at 17 MB? If I do have to uncompress my photos, are there any services that let you do that for free?
  20. I have just tried to upload ~6 photos via FTP and Image Manager for Live News. They are "processing errors" and blank thumbnails. Does anyone know what this is?
  21. I have uploaded two batches this week and in both cases the metadata ie,captions and tags was not loaded. I now have to cut and paste individually for each image which is infuriating, Has anyone else had the problem or am I doing something wrong?
  22. Greetings, New contributor to Alamy.com / we have uploaded our 3 images and passed, and they are on sale and searchable. User ID: ModernPics Web Uploads fail 100% for us / all images just report error Using FileZilla we are able to connect using our email address and password, we see the folders, we click into Stock and upload 4 images / all of them report a successful upload. However, we do not see them in file manager. DSC1495.jp, DSC1757.jpg, DSC1877.jpg and DSC2021.jpg File sizes are 6 megs, 12 megs, 10 megs and 6 megs We LOVE Alamy just need to get started with uploads. PS. I know the 1st report of this was - no issues on your end, however - everything checks out with the suggestions and still cannot upload since yesterday. Honestly perplexed as this should not be a difficult process, we also are a web hosting provider, so we have tried Passive FTP / Active FTP and Auto ... we have tried multiple browsers, clearing cache. Web uploads just report "Error" that is all No issue uploading the 3 required images for QC, which passed and you can see them in the search results on sale. Almost seems that we are not 100% vetted into the system yet? We are very new as of about a week. We just now sent an email to contributors@alamy.com and replied to a response we received from the chat session, however seems that is for buyers / sales. Same issue for 2 days at this point. Thanks for your help in advance!
  23. Hi all, this morning i'm trying to upload via ftp some images after my account has been frozen for 1 week due to Alamy QC failures. I'm still receiving Error 550 access denied on my FTP client even though i've received the "unfrozen" email from Alamy and i properly have the "Upload" blue button on my dashboard. Someone could explain?
  24. Hi, Since I have got the new MI, I can not uplaod images, neither via the website nor via FTP. Didn't changed the way I process my images. Anybody has the same issue? Thanks
  25. Photo quality changes after upload

    This is weird. I previously uploaded photos taken with my iPhone 4s, after upload they still were sharp and clear to see. Now I am uploading with shots taken from an iPhone 6s. After uploading the photos are appearing quite fuzzy. What would cause this? Thank you
