Is it possible to delete an image before its passed QC?

Question

As above really. I've just submitted a small batch of images for QC that I thought were fine. I just happened to look at one of them again on a better monitor and theres a dust spot visible in the sky 😠.

Obviously its entirely my fault for not checking more thoroughly but if at all possible I'd like to remove the offending image, sort it and resubmit rather than fail qc over it but I can't seem to find a way to so. 

Thanks in advance, (a slightly embarrassed) James 😀

Unfortunately, there is no way that I know of. The good news is that QC failures don't seem to be punished as severely as they were in the past.

Thanks for taking the time to respond, if I'm honest I kind of suspected that would be the case. Oh well it'll teach me more careful in future. 

Thanks again. James

What you do is wait until it passes (assuming it doesn't fail) then email Alamy pointing out the technical error and ask them to remove the image they will normally do that in a few hours so you don't have to have it hanging round.

 

If you want to replace it with a cleaned up image mention that too then just submit the revised image as normal.

 

P.S. Don't feel embarassed it's not something to worry too much about.  I've requested removal of a few images on with dust spots and a panoroma with incorrect stitching. It happens.

Or just delete in AIM before keywording. It will never appear.

Thank you all again for taking the time to advise me. As it happens the image in question somehow got through QC so has been duly deleted ready to resubmit a hopefully flawless version when I get back home tonight :)

Thanks again. James
