First QC Fail!

Recommended Posts

Bloody hell -My first QC fail in 70 submissions  :wacko:

 

To be honest, I deserved it, the image was soft, there was too much noise (although that was deliberate), and I'd become complacent and let my quality drop.

 

Will I be sin binned for eternity??

Did they show you the image that failed? If so, it's unlikely you'll be spending time in the slammer. 

 

The point here is: don't try to get away with anything. Make sure, when looking at every inch of an image at 100%, that there is nothing that could fail QC.

Yes Ed, they did... I hope you're right.  :unsure:

 

Don't worry, I have learnt my lesson. A part of me was testing the envelope on how far I could push an image.. but I may have a toe off the edge of a cliff now, so playing it safe from now on.

Try submitting one sure-to-pass image as a test. Good luck.

David, in terms of a "sin bin" being where you are not able to upload, it simply does not exist!

 

Alamy clearly state that if you continue to submit sub-standard work you may have your upload capacity suspended for a time, but that is not the case if you have simply had a QC fail.

The term "sin bin" refers to the indeterminate time between submitting your images and being told that one or more has failed. During that period, any more images that you send in will not be looked at and will be just added to the reject pile.

 

Once you are told that you have failed QC, any images that you submit after that will once again go through the normal QC process.

Ah is that how it works?  OK then :)

 

Excellent!  Then I'm as sound as a pound for now at least...

 

Thanks for clarifying that for me.
