I havent been submitting to Alamy for few months now, but as I had my first sale last month, I have decided to submit more soon again.
So far I have submitted in Tiff but I see now that they request JPG but still with  48MB minimum uncompressed file size.
Doest it mean one shall upsize the file so to have 48MB in Tiff and than save in jpg with lowest compression possible?
Thanks for any comfirmation of the above.

yes that is correct

upsize until it is 48mb inside of photoshop ( you can see that when you click on edit>image size)
then save it as a jpg with quality 12.

Also keep in mind that there is a maximum file size for JPEG.  Alamy doesn't want the JPEG to be larger than 20 mb.  Most of mine usually fall around 12 to 14 mb, but I have had the occasional file exceed the 20 mb limit.  Just a matter downsizing slightly (still above the 48 mb minimum) and resave.  Don't know what I'll do if a file is still too large at 48mb.  Don't care to use a quality level lower than 12.
