QC

Recommended Posts

I was surprised that I uploaded several photos that were in QC.  I received a message back that because 1 picture failed, all images are rejected.  Is this the standard process?  If so, why can't they just reject the one photo and leave the others?  This process seems a little cumbersome.  This is my 1st trial of Alamy with bulk uploads.  In comparison to Getty, they don't reject the entire group; just the one that didn't pass (and they give the reason).  If I am missing a step, I would appreciate the group's advice.  

If this is the process, my next question would be how do I delete all submitted photos, as I will just work with Getty.

This is the process. Many people make it work for them.

Risk based QC sampling is common in many walks of life and industry. It's cost effective. If part of the sample fails, it's an indicator the rest of the batch will exhibit the same or other problems.

Alamy don't check every image just a select few from the batch. If an image fails the batch fails. Send Contributor relations an email and they will delete your portfolio according to their terms and conditions.
