My Alamy Upload Has Stopped Working


Recommended Posts

There have been a few issues with the Alamy website on Chrome recently. It takes ages to load a search (or just doesn't happen), for example.

For a few days I can't log in on Chrome so I use Firefox which lets me in fine and let me upload today. In Chrome my cursor hovers over 'sign in' but nothing happens when I click it.

Firefox it is. The only issue for me in Chrome is getting search results.

Interesting that other people are having difficulty with search. I use Safari.

The Alamy upload fixed itself. I use Safari and that's what I want to continue to use. I edited and uploaded 6 new images and they went right through. The three I was having trouble with yesterday still won't budge. I deleted them. Take that!

I've been having quite a few issues with Safari too. Sometimes, especially on Alamy, the current tab just freezes. Opening a new tab works. Image searches on Alamy sometimes appear to just hang. Brave and Chrome seem OK though. No idea what's going on.

does anyone else deliver via ftp?
is there upper limit on character length of folder name?
I sent "MX-FL231126-29-JPGs27MB-222-Alamy+11"
it transferred OK, ended with usual "church bell gong"
but didn't show at Alamy's end...
could be longest folder name I've ever sent...
I know there's no issue with "+" as I've included it before...
if you know, please...
otherwise, awaiting IM response...

I’ve previously informed them of Safari issues particularly in relation to search  but never seems to be properly fixed

I don't use FTP because I'm still unsure the the destination path I need to specify and my uploads are less frequent these days so it doesn't seem worth investing the time / grey matter. Question though, is it possible to upload files from 2 or more web browsers simultaneously? I was thinking, if I didn't want to sit around waiting for stuff to complete,  I could start one upload in Safari, start another one using Chrome, and if needs dictate go and put the kettle on while a third starts using Firefox. Would that work or is it IP address aware? Any thoughts?

If you're finding uploads are slow I'd check your broadband upload speed first using one of the online broadband speedcheckers, as that's probably where the "bottleneck" is. If it is then using more browsers won't give any benefit.

Thanks. Not so much a speed constriction just the ability to set-up multiple uploads and leave them to get on with it while I go and do something more worthwhile. I don’t like uploading in big batches just in case one pic gets rejected and screws up the entire upload. Suppose I’m going to have to go and try it.

Uploads working well here using Safari. Have also Chrome and Firefox as backups. Using macOS Ventura on a 12" i7 16GB 512G storage MacBook Retina, small and very light. Just testing with my phone's hotspot via 5G before leaving home for the day.

But, if an image in a submission fails QC, then any other submissions that are also in the QC queue will also be rejected. So that's not a good time saving strategy, unless you wait for each submission to pass QC before uploading the next. That can be quite quick, if you have a very good QC rating, as "QC approval" is often immediate.
