International stock photo agency Alamy has announced that it will now allow photos taken on mobile phones into its collection.

Alamy has allowed users to submit photos taken on mobile phones, with the exception that they do not use instagram style filters on their shots.

“Alamy are now allowing submission of photos from mobile phones, for instant and breaking news, citing the resolution of smartphone cameras as suitable quality for both on-line and off-line news agencies. It's recognition of the continued development of smartphone cameras, with the instant sharing features allowing images to be sent live from the scene.” Said ePHOTOzine's Technical Editor, Joshua Waller.

“It makes a lot of sense for a news agency to allow the use of smartphone photos, particularly for online sites, where pictures of the event are essential. Allowing filters would most likely render the images unusable on news sites.” He added.

Alamy re-iterated that shots submitted must have news, sport or entertainment value, whether they are taken on mobile phones or not.
