  1. if anyone's interested i just get this email today from Alamy Hi Mark, We've got sample release forms on our site, but you're free to use your own format including some of the digital model release Apps available. Releases are legal documents between yourself and the model or property owner, so whatever format you use you need to ensure its legally binding and happy it protects you and your interests. If you're in doubt then we'd recommend speaking to a lawyer.
  2. hi thanks for that, i will check out the big g releases today . The "Easy Release" are indeed popular however the completely free snapwire release app comes with several popular templates like getty and a few other what they call industry standards so im hoping it will work for alamy, eyem will not take anything except there own paper release and emailed release forms from the model, and you dont even know that they take paper releases till you ask them....but then there web site has lots of confusing stuff . i just searched big g releases, no results, then it occurred to me that
  3. hi anyone know a: which releases alamy accepts. there are a great many Like the ones that come with the snapwire release app b: Eyem seem to accept most of the pix without a release that alamy turn down for commercial use [and eyem checks them too] any thoughts on this as it seems like 2 standards eyem says for instance, a property only needs to be released if its the MAIN focus of the pic, and their catalog bears this out. pls note i do know about using them with editorial license thanks
  4. thanks for that i just looked at episode 5 ...beautiful clear audio too. just an idea but when it comes to appps there seem to be 3 categories. really free like snap seed , free [ish] but the ads/upgrade prompts are so annoying as to make the whole thing a pain , and paid . of coarse u can convert many free [ish] apps to paid but somehow no one ever tells you till you beforehand.........but thats only what i'd like to see
  5. ha ha...yes im getting the picture.. that snapseed app seems ok on my phone but they also did a desktop version before being taken over bu google .......so far ive had no luck finding it without bundled crap ware....anyone know where it can still be found
  6. ah yes that seems to be the bottom line, that hadnt occurred to me. "seem to prefer a high degree of filtering. I think it degrades the perceived value of what's on offer." i just thought that buyers would maybe prefer to do their own modifications to the pic, i know i would after seeing some of the offerings:) this line of thought started when i realised i hadnt sold any pix, there are only 10 but they've been there a long time just downloaded snapseed , how was the older version better, i know this can be the case. will look at it today...thanks
  7. hummm, think ill avoid utube vids on the subject , just watched hers and spent a hour trying to work some crappy app that was impossible to use but thanks anyway there was some good content in here vids [saw both]
  8. hi with stockimo pix is there any usefulness in submitting an additional copy which is not altered, and tagging it as such also the same question applies to regular photos at alamy and if so what would the best term be, unaltered or not altered or ........bearing in mind american english and search terms also can anyone suggest a good app to modify pix which is free and has not got options to upgrade and all the other annoying things most free apps do...whew thats a tall order any thoughts on this thanks

    stockimo down

    stockimo down

    hi anyone know if the stockimo site is down as i cant log in thanks
  13. "but it has relicensed as RF anyway." interesting, can u explain this bit pls
  14. ah...must have been the other agencyt...thanks....thats buggered it then, in another photo i went to great lengths to get a release from the only recognizable person...but the other people i assume also now need releases ....is that so?
  15. oh...i must have forgotten. whats confusing is that i recall that for some reason it is important to determin wheather a person was recognisable or not, i just dont remember why that is ? any ideas?
  16. hi anyone know why i am not allowed to offer a shot with an unrecognisable person for commercial use through stockimo app. i though if they were unrecognisable it comercialy, but the app refuses it imediatly thanks
  17. heres my 2 cents worth....stockimoto tell me that the app for android is very difficult to write compared to the iphone one, they also say it will probably come later but for now they have established that the iphone is the most popular [for what they want] they say that the majority of stuff they send out gets read on one....so thats straight from the horses mouth
  18. well....if you both [above posts] cant grasp simple humor in a forum and/or don't appreciate a point of view which is different to your own without making negative comments ....then perhaps yr in the wrong place.
  20. hey, thats very encouraging/good news thanks
  21. hummm.... so i guess this means they simply haven't got round to writing an app. pity cause i strongly suspect i can by a better camera phone for less than my iphone cost actually, i asked them this question and they replyed "we have no plans" to do this. not much help
  22. hi anyone know if there are any apps for stockimo type photo enhancements that will run on a pc, preferably the same sort that im currently using on an iphone. cant find any reference to this on the web thanks
  23. thats it really, would luv to know the answer. anyone know if an official post has been put up to answer this thanks why are android phones deemed unsuitable for stockimoto
