Hello. I have been banned from uploading for 9 days and i just took a week off in order to have the time to upload and tag everything properly.  Alamy is being unjust and unfair and insinuating their time is more valuable than mine. The images rejected were DSLR and are already for sale on GETTY PREMIUM SELECTION. They have rejected an untouched  macro photo which is very very detailed, with bokeh around the edges, saying it's blurry! Um yeah....bokeh is blurred! It's supposed to be! But 9 days? Wow. Harsh punishment and now costing me a fortune in wasted vacation time. Ready to bail on Alamy already.

This topic is a little misleading - to clarify - your upload privileges were frozen as you had uploaded images taken with Samsung Galaxy A5 mobile phone. This is unsuitable for Alamy submissions. 

 

There may have been other images within your uploads that were taken with suitable cameras, but we don't check every image you send us and if one fails then any others you have awaiting QC will also fail. 

 

Here's a link to our submission guidelines: https://www.alamy.com/contributor/how-to-sell-images/guidelines-for-submitting-images/

 

Hope this helps,

It's the same rules for us all. And most of us obey them and pass QC regularly. You could consider spending some time fixing your tags and captions on the few images you've already loaded. An old car with the caption "Fairyland at Dawn" is one example of poor captioning, the young women in shorts "Short shorts Stopping traffic" as a caption.....yet there is no traffic being stopped at all in the image.

You took a week off and did not bother to read the guidelines? Uploading a phone pic?? And you are complaining about it? Err....

 

As cbimages mentioned, you obviously did not do any reading how to tag and caption either.

 

9 days suspension well deserved in my opinion.

Your eyesight must also be blurry if you couldn't manage to read the submission rules. Poor show Ashavatar. I think you owe Alamy an apology.

And the rest of us for time spent reading your unfounded gripe.

You need to improve your approach to keywording or tagging. You have an old 60's pick-up with an Ontario plate but you don't say Canada nor Ontario. In fact you should nail the year and make . That Arret sign could only be in Quebec, they use Stop in France. Fairyland at dawn?  What kind of a title is that doing here?  This isn't a camera club, it is a commercial site where we hope to make sales after imparting some information attached to our photographs. So your recent proposed upload is on Getty Premium Selection already? Alamy are happy with non-exclusive, you sure this is OK with Getty?

 

Alamy  does have a separate side for smartphone pix, but they have to be taken on an iphone  Let's not get into why!

Every thread in a post!

That's got to be a record. Hope Alamy bins this one too. But not before I get a red for this.

Sorry, I missed yours out when I said there was a red for every post. Would you like one to make a full house?:)
