It seems that if a model release is not needed the image comes up. Happens to me all the time.

Alamy wrote a blog about this explaining the reason why they made the change. Many picture buyers have MR ticked all the time whether searching for images with people or not which meant that images where a release is not needed we're being filtered out. Makes a lot of sense IMO, not at all dumb.

It's certainly not dumb and something I had complained to MS about on more than one occasion.  It applies particularly to wildlife where it's obviously not possible to get model (or property) releases, which meant that they didn't show up in searches where MR was specified.  So if you tick NO to "is a release required" the image has the same chance of selling as one that has a release (MR or PR).
