Potential Error of Test Submission Restrictions, Help Needed


Recommended Posts

Heya - I'm Alex, a passionate photographer. I recently uploaded my test submission, but I believe an error occurred, and I want to see if I can take it back.
 
I only uploaded one image for my test submission and the image is already in QC. I believe that the system requires you to upload 3, but my one image automatically was sent to QC, and I can't upload any more images. However, it also isn't the image I want to upload - and I can't upload the other 2 images I need to upload, so I was hoping if I can take the image back and re-upload my images for my test submission. The ID of the image is 2CCJCYR. 
 
 
I completely understand if it isn't possible, but I was hoping for something. :)

No, you can't 'take back' the image you uploaded. I presume it would fail QC as there is only 1 image instead of the 3 required. Once it has failed you can delete the image in Alamy Image Manager (AIM).

 

When you upload your first 3 images make sure you don't upload anything too complicated. Remember Alamy doesn't edit for content so make sure the images are technically correct ie well exposed, no camera shake etc.

Hi John - thanks for the post! :)

 

Yes, it does appear that my image failed QC because "there's only one image" and now I've gone ahead and re-uploaded my test submission.

 

Thanks,

Alex.

What John said. You don’t need to delete the image, because it failed, and that upload will never be a part of your portfolio.  And sorry to say, we can’t delete our failures from Image Manager. I wish we could, because I have enough failures from years past to depress me.
Unless things have changed?

Betty, I think I've always been able to delete. Under the optional section in Image Manager.

I can’t delete any images from failed batch in AIM. It won’t let me select any of them. Or am I missing something?

Not images that have failed Bella. Only those that passed.

No. You can't do anything to a failed batch.

Had to go back 4 years to find one to check;)

Aaah, sorry, yes I see now that my processing errors that I was having a little while ago can't be deleted either.

- but you don't need to view the failures - they can be filtered out in the first filter in AIM, "Quality Control".

 

 

Filtering out our failures? If only we could do that in 'real life' (or is that what alcohol is for?)...
