Need more info to rate.
They want very technically high quality photos, so basically photos that are sharp and in-focus, without dust specks or blemishes or over-editing.
Seems like they care more about photographers getting compensated compared to other Stock Photo sites like Shutterstock.
They claim they will get your images on sale on the market within 24 hours.
Can submit Rights Managed stock, as well as Royalty Free stock.
Batch editor to edit tags.
Can also co-partner with another site to sell photos in more places around the world. You'll get 30%, Alamy gets 30%, partner gets 40%.
Can send in photos using a physical memory stick, and can send an excel file with tags of all photos and they'll take care of it.
Can connect to paypal, skrill, or directly to bank account for payments.
Minimum size requirement: JPEG file size of 17MB (when open/uncompressed).
Don't know how to calculate uncompressed filesize? Click here to learn.
5 tags minimum.
45 day notice to terminate contract.
Cannot delete photos while in QC, but can do so before they go live on site.
Can retouch, but not noticeably when zoomed in at 100%.
They want very high quality photos.
Need to check images at 100% zoom to make sure there's no noise, camera shake, and no sharpening applied from imaging software.
No mobile/phone images accepted on website or FTP, but can instead use their iPhone app Stockimo.
Very strict quality control requirements.
For first few test submissions, images need valid camera metadata.
After passing Quality Control, need to wait until search engine updates within 24 hours.
Pricing: Searched for image and looked at prices.
