Alamy.com / Re: Caution: Don't Question Alamy

Had only one experience with Alamy quite a few years back but it was so bad I decided not to bother. Every when and then a report like this confirms and while they still send me their contributor mails, I was initially approved, such reports confirm to me to stay away. Personally I feel they have the worst attitude towards contributors I've experienced dealing with quite some of the major and lately also some newer companies.

Got this promotion giveaway offer some 1-2 weeks ago, finally managed to upload enough files with #300 approved yesterday. Hope we're still early enough. What's next? Does Adobe detect the 300 hurdle or does one have to apply in some way?

Totally agree with the "Alamy Sucks" statement. Despite quite some negative vibes we decided to add them to our distribution First upload the system got stuck several times till we managed to get 42 shots done. After x tries we managed 60. Here it comes, they managed to check ONE, yes the first one, didn't like it and hence rejected them all. Following up on this attitude we were advised this is their standard procedure as the first upload should only be 5-8 images. A few weeks later, calm again, we uploaded 6 images and the same BULLCRAP attitude - 1st one rejected, all rejected. They milk the cow on contributors hard work and considering the quantity they have piled up and their lack of training, manning,... they bounce you off as quick as they can.

Won't waste my time again. Since I spent much of my career in Marketing I can only say just good I never purchased an image from them and for the future one won't even waste the time to check what they have.
