From a recent survey, we know that a lot of you prefer to use Lightroom to process your images and get them ready to upload to Alamy. We’ve put together a handy ‘cheat sheet’ listing the most common QC failure reasons and a guide to how you can fix them quickly and easily using Adobe Lightroom.

You’ll also find guidance on where to add your captions and tags in Lightroom. If you have this information embedded within your images then they’ll go on sale with your default pseudonym and license type once they’ve passed through QC – you won’t need to do anything further.

We’ve also included shortcuts (where they’re available) to help speed up your workflow.
