Hello friends and colleagues, I'm new to Alamy, please could someone tell me if Alamy will allow images that have been cropped. Also if they've been enhanced to improve clarity.


One more if Imay, will they permit vintage cars with their number plate showing?


With grateful thanks,

Yes to all 3 questions.

Cropping is OK providing cropped image still contains over ~6 million pixels and image quality is good when viewing at 100%

It's fine to enhance images, but be careful not to introduce defects/artefacts. Do not oversharpen, watch out for noise in shadows, halos around edges and banding in skies, or excessive clipping of histogram etc.

Mark images of cars as Contains property = Yes, Releases = no (unless you have them) and possibly mark as Editorial only = Yes
