I got some my last batch rejected by alamy due to some editing errors,which I fully agree with.
but the question is (as I am still rather new there and didn't have many rejections so far) should I correct the files and re-upload? 
next to rejection notice it says:resubmit media,does that mean you can resubmit it ,like in IS's rejected images page?
I know lately they have new strict rules on re-uploading rejected files so I don't want risk anything ,what would you suggest?

Thanks in advance.

I don't think Alamy has any specific rules on resubmitting.  Unlike the micros they ONLY reject on technical faults rather than content.  If you fix the reason they rejected it, there's no reason why you shouldn't resubmit.  I've only had one batch rejected so far and I resubmitted after correcting the problem.

Alamy has done a bang up job of compiling all the most common questions into what I'd call a super FAQ.  Their Contributer's section is just loaded with this sort of thing.  Read up, it'll help you a lot.

Without you providing the image so we can tell you what's wrong with it, you aren't going to get a good answer.  If it was a total garbage shot that slipped in, then no, of course not.  Dump it and move on.

On the other hand, if it's a bit of sensor dust you forgot to clone out, then fix it and re-upload the thing, but not before checking that you caught that same problem in the other images in that series..

Where it says: Failed QC - Resubmit Media

Click on the Failed QC and it will take you to the list of images and you will see a short text as to what failed.

A couple of more steps, lets say the error was 'Noticable Retouching', click on the wording and it will take you to a list, click on the phrase and you will see an example


View the Image then make a call to Fix or Trash

Thank you all for your help.I appreciate it.

actually I know why the images were rejected and if I re-edit the file the error will be gone.it happened because of my uncalibrated monitor(blushes) but my new screen calibrator on it s way:)


the photos in question weren't the best  images I ever took  but I think they still have sales potential so I am going to re-upload them.


once again Thank you very much.

So one can have a thousands of tehnically very good pictures with no sense at all, when we speak about content. Maybe that's the reason why people aren't selling. But they are wasting time and space which is critical to find out a picture for customer when need arise.
