There are 2 section above search box in alamy... 1 is all of alamy and 2 is creative..
what is creative search.. and how is it different from "all of alamy" search ?
It's pretty arbitrary. Try it and see!

hello
I posted my initial 4 images for my 1st QC in alamy on Friday night. And my photos are still in waiting List awaiting for approval. Does it mean that any of my images has been rejected ? Do they inform through email about approval or rejection ?

Patience, poppet. They don't do any inspections over the weekend.

Don't worry, I've still got some from Thursday in awaiting inspection and I haven't had a rejection for years. Anything that would pass the leading micros will pass on Alamy.

Be very afraid  ;) - I submitted 24 late last night and I'm already 'managing' them!

(Don't worry, they don't go in order - I've had images accepted after a couple of days while others on the forum said theirs had gone through in four hours.)

I'm sure an initial submission will always take longer than regular QC.

Probably depends how many newbies are in the queue. When I joined, it was just a couple of days, but that was a couple of years ago.

Alamy says your QC times are affected by your past history.  If you build a record of acceptance, it gets faster.

I joined Alamy on 26.11, uploaded my initial images on 27.11 and received confirmation that I passed the Quality Control test on 28.11. I'd say pretty smooth sailing.

I understand that a proportion of inspections are done in India (it was mentioned in the forum a few weeks back), so Monday morning in India would still be Sunday further west. I have often uploaded early in the UK morning (c2 or 3 a.m.) and found them needing managed within about 6-8 hours. Of course, it's not always that fast.

Ok so finally 1 of my photo out of 4 images has been rejected in my 1st QC and it was true what i had doubt about that image, alamy commented the same. strange that it has been selected in DT.
but can i submit rest 3 photos again with a replacement photo of the 4th failed one ?  or better to submit whole new set of 4 images for my 2nd QC...? Let me tell you that rest 3 images has qualified my IS test and are also in DT... so can i take that risk ?
another thing.. is it ok to post images for my 2nd QC immediately or better to wait for few days before submitting photos again ?

Finallyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
got selected in ALAMY...
I cant believe it... it was my 3rd QC (could not pass 2 QC) so was thinking my photos will be reviewed at last
but...... very strange that my 3rd QC result came out within 24 hrs where as my 1st QC result took 10 days and 2nd QC result took 24 days......

I am really thankful to all of you who replied my thread and mails with valuable suggestions without which it was impossible for me to clear my test in alamy...
special thanks to  Shadysue (Eli), Leaf, Racephoto, BaldricksTrousers, stockastic, paulo and karimala for their very useful mails and suggestions that boosted a newbie like me
        :-)

Very simple.
They have rule, that if you failed - they don't let you know about this for several weeks, to "encourage" you be better next time.

So first two times your files were reviewed within the same 24 hours
