  1. Thanks Martin. I recently found out about this and opted many of images out of personal use licenses but more than half of them were "greyed out" and AIM prevented me from selecting the option. How do I opt all images out of personal use?
  2. I also have been noticing a lot of "personal use" licenses for $9.99. What's going on? This seems fishy.
  3. I recently noticed an image of mine DH83W1 licensed for 3 months as editorial in 2017 for $28.48 is still being shown online. It also has advertisements embedded around and on the image!!! This does not qualify as editorial if ads are on the actual photo. There are ads for United Airlines, New York Life and Kaiser Permanente that show up on the image when viewed from a mobile phone or other devices. Clicking on the photo plays a video advertisement or takes you to another page. Doesn't this qualify as advertising use? The image of the uncooked wagyu beef rib roast is about half way down the page. Here is the link: https://www.countrylife.co.uk/food-drink/british-beef-deserves-just-much-acclaim-kobe-beef-149880 Regarding editorial and advertising: https://www.stockphotosecrets.com/questions-answers/licensing/what-are-editorial-images-licences.html An editorial image can only be used in ways where this is no personal benefit or commercial gain. An editorial licensed image can not be used for the following: Any commercial purposes including advertising or promotions To receive any fees from a third party sponsor or endorsement
  4. Alamy appears to be using a keyword search to restrict images without even bothering to view the actual image. They went on to restrict 11 of my images, 5 of which contain no street art and entirely my own creations. 4 of these images are panoramic photos tagged with the keyword "mural". Another one is an image I created in Photoshop from a photo I took of a cityscape. I suggest they use more discretion and look at the image before banning it from certain sales. How long will it take them to correct this issue and how long has it been in place, potentially causing a loss in sales? This is the email I received: As you may be aware we’ve recently seen an increase in the number of complaints we have been receiving from street artists and muralists. Our lawyer has advised us that images containing murals shot with wider context to the image, should have “editorial use only restrictions” applied. In order to prevent any potential issues we have taken the decision to apply this restriction across the Alamy collection to all images tagged with “mural” or “murals”. The following images in your collection have been restricted: Alamy Ref / Contributor Ref BB665A / D209481 C1ER4E / _D209673 BBK0AP / ManhattanPano_2006 BB646K / D209993 BB641B / D208004 BX3KF6 / DSC_0614_WC BB53BA / D209784 C2XCHF / BombShelter_D206887 BAEM64 / D209673 BPE1AY / 3764_3773 BAEM70 / DSC2145
