I just spent all of 2 min looking at them and found duplicate images.

Duplicate images are not that much of a surprise - Alamy do not stipulate exclusivity so many photographers load their images at other sites too.

I don't know myloupe though so cannot comment specifically on whether they are related.

Didi they send an email acknowledging that they got it? if not, your problem may be in the post. They do say to allow 14 (business?) days for the QC review.

Ok. I'm now registered to Alamy. I'll just have to get 10-15 nice photographs gathered.. Hopefully, i'll get through.. Can't wait to make money by selling photographs

Are you sure? My 1d Mark 1 has smaller files than my Digital Rebel. I'm guessing you're referring to the 1d Mark II? Or perhaps the 1ds Mark I and II?


The 1Ds Mark II is the only one that produces an 8 bit 48mb file with out interpolation. But I have to say, I'm very impressed with ressing up my 24mb file from my 1D Mark II.

Not too sure why you brought a Pentax then, why not stick with a point and shoot 3MP if you wish to continue on the bargain-bin sites?


I'm current building a library of photos with the Pentax before I release them or should I send each image one at a time on a dvd to Alamy for consideration.

The shots from the 3MP were taken years before.

Why if you don't have a Mark I?

Minimum Pixels- 6MP (but I have got away with a 4MP)

Minimum File- 48Mb TIFF (it can be LZW compressed to save disc space)

Upsizing Software- Genuine Fractuals or CS/CS2 interpolation (that of course if you don't have a Mk 1 )

Sharpening?- They say NO...but a small amount is up to you, don't be dissapointed if they fail at QC.

That's what I tell the guy at the hotdog stand downtown when I'm selling hotdogs at cost right next to his booth. The money I make covers half of my costs of supplies, but I just looove selling hotdogs so much that I don't care...I mean, it's just a hobby!

When I bought my A70 I never dreamt I can get my money back but I did it!


Well don't let the man keep you down!! Reach for the stars.

Not bad!

Oh yeah...yes, I did. I will update that thread because I'm sure everyone's dying to know.

Alamy recommends ensuring that "digital camera images are captured on a digital camera capable of producing files of 17MB and upwards".

Is this limited to the 1ds MkII and equivalents?


No, I believe they are talking about uncompressed TIFF sizes. Convert your RAW file to a TIFF and it should be about that size.

I just upsampled an image from my 1D Mark II to 70mb. I was pretty impressed. Maybe I can hold off buying that 1Ds Mark II...

It also says "When placing images with Alamy, however, images must be unsharpened (not to be confused with 'soft scans' or 'unsharp scans'). This is so that clients and their printers can decide for themselves how much they wish to sharpen the images."

Huh?

Do you guys really not apply any USM before sending the file?


For the most part, yes.

I tried not to sharpen mine at all. Unfortunately the Adobe raw converter applies some sharpening by default and I neglected to turn it off, so a few my images were mildly sharpened. But I could barely tell it. My test CD is still in the submissions queue, so we'll see.

I sharpen all of mine. But I don't OVER sharpen them. Most people over sharpen a tad. Of coarse all of mine have been film scans so far.

That's what I did, sent them unsharpened, uncompressed RGB TIFFs (that's why they don't want uploads). After (substantial) upsampling the files averaged about 52MB each -- I put 15 on a DVD-R. Unfortunately (or maybe not), I don't have one of their "recommended" cameras.

I see no point in not following instructions the first time ....
