Releases for my own paintings' photos

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.

Could you please help me- I cannot find info on alamy whether I need to upload releases for my own paintings" photos?

Thank you very much. :)

It can't do any harm. I always upload a release if I put any photos of myself on Alamy.

You don't need a property release unless you want to sell them for advertising etc.

I just put no "release required" for my paintings. The subject matter of my paintings could not be used for anything dodgy, so I'm not going to complain if they want to use them for advertising!

It depends on how much of the frame the paintings occupy. While property releases aren't required for editorial images Alamy has rather strict guidelines regarding copying artwork.

It would certainly be better to include a release to avoid any confusion over whether the images violate anyone's copyright.
