Walter J replied to cdbr225's topic in Stock photography discussion and contributor experienceI cannot seem to find where to start with Alamy measures what page is it located on or how to find it?
I tried my first post yesterday to Almay Live News with a minor event to test it out, but I was not able to set rights to “Editorial Only” after posting even with multiple try’s saving the images after they were OKed and chickened out and deleted the images in my post. Is the setting “Rights Managed” the same? It looked as if there were potential commercial (marketing) and private use of the images (I do not have model releases). A description by Almay said they were looking for daily news events even things like a photo of interesting clouds. I thought covering a Fall Harvest festival could be picked up as “light” news and I could test the system. Event was on the grounds of a nonprofit organization (Blacksmiths, wood worker’s venders children animals). I became worried that images like the boy with the turban etc. would be used for something commercial after it became “Stock”. I included a link to the images below. I also included some pictures of an event (protest of Enbridge oil pipeline) I covered last year that had Pottawatomi Indians in attendance with shots I liked and was considering using as "Editorial". https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.718982311589837.1073741869.145652265589514&type=1&l=1902b6e8ab Should I have been worried about the use of the images for something other than Editorial news? What is Marketing use? Are images like these OK to post in News and have any public interest? I know don’t quit my day job! Any help or thoughts would be great!, Thanks
