Archival/reportage images. Where to see them?

Recommended Posts

Hello, everybody.

Yesterday I uploaded a number of photos to Alamy Live News. The batch was removed from the Alamy New line so I made a conclusion that it was rejected as a news and added to QC queue as an editorial media.

Today I received an automated note from Alamy that my media has passed QC as an archival/reportage photos.

So, where to find those Archival/reportage photos?

They did not appear in my portfolio.

How to get to them in Alamy.

I applied for Archival/reportage photos only today. 

What to do? How to see my archival/reportage photos (and photos of others)

Are they on sale? Where?

Look in Manage Images, they may need keywording and attributes as for the main stock archive (Essential etc). They may show as Ready - more information required or Not Ready.

Thanks, Martin, but Manage Images section is empty of any new photos of mine.

Nothing.

And how to view reportage pictures of other phogographers?

I can easily find NEWS photos but how to find ALL reportage ones?

The archival/reportage SHOULD appear in the main collection as long as you have Archival/Reportage switched on in advanced search (default I believe). I don't think it is possible to search for just archive/reportage.

OK. Thanks, Martin.

I guess, Alamy made a mistake notifying me about QC success of a batch of not my number.

Assume that you have looked in the Ready window under Manage Images?

Empty. )

 

ready - 0

not ready - 0

...more details required - 0

 

So, maybe this was an Alamy mistake to inform me about other person's photos.

OK. Yesterday I visited Moscow Kremlin and made about 40 photos of tourists in the Kremlin and places of interest.

Those images were not considered suitable for Alamy News and I saw the batch in my Track submissions section as Awaiting QC.

To your info, I am in the Sin Bin now, so I decided that this new images would be rejected automatically.

It was yesterday.

Today I received a note from Alamy that my images passed QC as Archival/reportage... But the number of the batch (Media ref.) was different from that one I see in my Track submissions section.

I was surprised and had an idea that Archival/reportage images are shown in some special place like Alamy Live News.

Such a mess.

Yesterday I sent an e-mail to member services, asking them to explain the situation, but still no answer from Alamy

I had something similar happen to news images I submitted a while back.  They were in the news feed, I received the message that they had bypassed QC, then they ended up in the regular QC queue under Track submissions.  I think they were deemed not newsworthy enough and so were moved.  In the process the media ref changed.  I think the "bypass QC" message may be an automated message.

As far as I know - if deemed not newsworthy, the images are moved from news to the standard stock QC que and route, not Reportage....  Approval will be subject to the normal QC regime and timescale..

OK. Have to wait two weeks more to the end of my Sin Bin term, then it will be clear.
