geogphotos Posted February 27, 2022 Share Posted February 27, 2022 The minimum for Archive is 5MB, for Stock it is 17 MB. I am digitising a lot of old film slides, I find it almost impossible not to 'dot-pick' everything I see. So that means I spend too much time on some images. This is a typical file: File size: 52.5 MB (2.8 MB Compressed download) Dimensions: 5302 x 3463 px | 44.9 x 29.3 cm | 17.7 x 11.5 inches | 300dpi I very much doubt that these old images will be published at those large dimensions. It would greatly simplify workflow to routinely reduce the pixel size of images - for starters dust spots and scratches would be much less obvious. I would be interested to know the decisions that others have made about digitising old slides and what file size they contribute to Alamy. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
