So, I was having trouble and uninstalled and reinstalled SS to try to fix the problem.  I have done a lot of work since the reinstall of SS, before I realized that none of my old data was there for all the images I had processed before the reinstall (several hundred images).  I have a backup from before the reinstall, but I am wondering if I can restore that old back up without changing the current data.  To make it simple, I just want to add the data from the old backup to SS without out changing the current data.  Can I do this?  How can this be done?

Alamy.com / New Alamy Member Question. What should do?
« on: February 27, 2019, 20:01 »
I just got approved for Alamy last month.  I have several other microstock accounts that I use to host pictures from my older cameras, and only upload photos from my new Sony A6500 to Alamy.  I am wondering if I should make all of these exclusive to alamy, or go ahead and put them up on my other accounts?  So, I have some questions that I hope can help me decide.

1. What is the lowest amount I will make off a single image sale on Alamy?
2. What is the most I will make off a single image sale?
3. What is the average amount I will make off of a single image sale?
4. What is the benefit of making images "Exclusive" to alamy?

TIA

This just started today.  I have uninstalled and reinstalled but I am still having the same problem.  Every time I try to use the QuickMeta function, it just hangs and then gives me this error.  Am I the only person this is happing too?

Take this picture for example.  Would a model release be necessary for a picture like this?

When I started getting interested in photography 20 years ago I was doing a lot of foreign travel for my job, which took me to some awesome places where I could capture images of unusual things.   The problem was, back then digital camera technology was still in it's infancy and I was not rich enough to buy the best stuff on the market. I bought what was considered great equipment in it's day and it cost a pretty penny, but by today's standards, it is would severely lacking.  But it was what I had, and I was able to take a lot of nice pictures with it.  Many of these images are so rare, nobody in micro stock or macro stock has them for sale.  My problem is, due to technical issues, most of them cannot get approved for sale. 

What I am looking for is creative ways to get them to pass.  Let me give you an example.   Here is a picture I would very much get approved of a Rooster-tail Cicada (fulgorid planthopper).  There are not pictures of a real fulgorid planthopper on the micro stock websites I have checked.  That search brings of a Pyrops candelaria, which is a completely different class of insect.

These shots have been rejected by every micro stock site I have tried, except for Deamstime, which I think, just accepts everything.  They have been rejected by shutterstock, 123RF, and adobe stock.  These are truly unique and I think it is worth trying to improve it them I can find a way to do it.  I am just not that good at advanced photos editing tricks.

So I signed up with 123RF a few weeks ago and uploaded a couple dozen photos to start with.  I have since uploaded a couple hundred.  All of my upload are fully keyworded and even Country associated, but they are all still in the INCOMPLETE category.   There is nothing left to do that I can see, but they just sit there as Incomplete.  Any advice?

Okay.  So I have been trying out stock submitter and I like it, except that I can find no way to synchronize it with my agencies.   What I mean is.  How do I make it talk to the agencies and get the status of images I have submitted.  For example.  After I submit images and they are reviewed, how does SS know which images has been approved or rejected?  Do you have to manually change the status of each image individually for each agency in the program?  That's a lot of work.
