delete images


Question

hello

I have a question . I want to delete a few images, the contrat says 90 if the image is already for sale. Which is the case.

So today is the sept 2nd. so 90 days it will be dec 2nd. Unless I am miscounting. And yet when I delete the images there is a message

saying deleteing mars 2, 2022!!

What is this???

thanks if you have an answer.

Not sure about the timing, I'd have to check. But if you want the deleted images to get buried, reduce the keywords to a minimum first before you delete the image.

It used to be 180 days before the new contract. Presumably you are getting the old message although it should change as I have images pending deletion with the 90 day message, even ones I deleted before the new contract came into force.

Also note that the 90 days is the period for which the image will be still offered for downloads in the database.  Alamy will still accept licencing after that date and there does not seem to be any time limit.

Reduce keywords, wait 24 hours for an update, then delete.

I think the minimum number of keywords an image must have is 5, though best check.

 

I think it`s just one now - I have some marked for deletion with just three keywords and one word in the caption.

better than reducing

use AIM to make supertag-caption-tag all nonsense, here you go:

Change the restrictions before you delete.  That way if you do not want your images to continue being sold for editorial use, for example, click that as a restriction and choose one of the others which it is very unlikely your images will be sold at e.g. personal use  (which might net you a higher rate than an editorial rate).  The restriction will last for the 90 day period thereby defacto preventing your images being sold for usages and prices you do not approve of.
