Has Alamy changed their QA process recently?  I can only seem to get rejected for camera shake on pictures shot the exact same way in 2016?

I don't know but I find it a lot easier to get Editorial through than RF.

I have noticed this, too. My QC rank was even frozen for some reason. Now I am afraid to upload any images. Anyone else having same problem?

They dont check every image, but the ones they check have to be technically sound.
If you fail submission, you can be in the 'sin bin' for a short time.
Its a great way to learn to self-scrutinize every image for texhnical soundness

Alamy tend to assume the photographer/image producer is in some half measure a professional taking pride in their work and only submitting good quality.

As opposed to certain microstock agencies who have no clue about quality and just accept any old tat.

I submitted a batch last week and they were reviewed in a couple of days just like normal - haven't noticed anything different.  When I have been rejected by them in the past it was because I did something stupid, like forgot to remove CA - very embarrassing and easily rectified.

I have been rejected in the past for trying to slip in slightly soft or grainy pics...never had a rejection that it didn't think was fair.
