The visualisation of the CMYK color mode images in Alamy site is not proper, with extremely saturated colours. Obviously its difficult to sell the images with this fake colour visualisation.
 
I scanned my original watercolours in CMYK, the best way for traditional printing. If I convert them into RGB probably the visualisation will be fine, but the original scanned quality will be lost.This issue does not happened in other Stock Photography sites.
 
May someone advice me about which path to follow? Should I delete all the uploaded images and resend them in RGB format?
 
Thanks!

Upload images as sRGB or AdobeRGB. Note that Alamy will convert AdobeRGB to sRGB so, if you're looking for identical colour rendering to the images you upload, then upload in sRGB. Also note that if a customer downloads or buys an image it is supplied by Alamy as sRGB but with the colour profile removed.
