FTP Folders for upload not as in documentation


Recommended Posts

It's been a while since I uploaded to Alamy so I thought I would check the upload specs on "How do I send you my stock images".

Had no problem logging in to the FTP both for News and standard uploads, but the documentation states:

  1. Drag your images to the relevant folder:
  • Live News (news, sport, entertainment less than 24 hours old)
  • Stock (if it’s your first submission only send 3 images)
  • Archive stock (for all reportage and archival images)
  • Vectors (for all vector files)

I don't see these folders - all I see is 

  • 360
  • Stock
  • Vectors

 

Is this because the documentation is out of date or should I be seeing other folders?

 

Thanks

Looks like you should see the Reportage/archival, you do not have live news - I seem to have lost my live news access as well, since I have not done any for more than a year

Alamy took that away a few months ago from all but regular news uploaders- there was a lot of complaint about it on here, especially as it didn't make much difference to the rubbish on the newsfeed.

I can see the categories using the website link but I am trying to use the FTP method.

 

Here are the complete instructions:

FTP

This is a quick and easy way to send us your images:

  1. You’ll need an FTP client, we recommend Filezilla, FirefTP, WinSCP, Cyberduck, or ClassicFTP
  1. Enter Alamy’s FTP details into your FTP Client:
  • Host name: upload.alamy.com
  • Login/username: Your Alamy email
  • Port: 21
  • Your password is the same as your Alamy login
  1. Drag your images to the relevant folder:
  • Live News (news, sport, entertainment less than 24 hours old)
  • Stock (if it’s your first submission only send 3 images)
  • Archive stock (for all reportage and archival images)
  • Vectors (for all vector files)

The folders are not displayed as above

 

UPDATE - I noticed that using the website link I can only upload to stock and not the News or Archive areas so this could be why I only get the 360, stock and vectors folders.
