Question

Hey everyone, I’m Alex, a new photographer at Alamy. I’ve got a few questions :)

 

1) How long exactly does it take for my images to be reviewed? I’ve heard a day and 3 weeks, but I just wanted some confirmation.  :)

 

2) Is there a way I can stay signed in? Every time I sign in, after awhile I’m out again...

 

3) Can I not add a payment method (for now)? I’m willing to add one later, but will my account balance be rest if I add/change one?

 

4) Will my images go live after I add the tags/title/etc., or does Alamy have to do a quick check? :)


5) How can I create and access my portfolio? I know the URL is something like alamy.com/portfolio/username, but it doesn’t work...

 

Thanks!

1) The first submission of 3 images is given closer inpection. At the moment (Covid-19 delays and lots of new contributors) this can take several weeks. If your submission is aproved, then further submissions are typically reviewed within a working day.

2) It varies for me, some devices stay signed in, others seem to sign out. No idea why.

3) I don't think your account will reset if you add payment details later - but I don't know this for certain.

4) After QC check for image quality only, Alamy don't check again. However, it typicaly takes 24 hours for images to go on sale on the main site after you have added tags/title/caption.

5) There's a button towards the bottom of the My Almay Dashboard page "Your Alamy Portfolio Page"
