Distribution/Novel Use/UK Newspaper Scheme in Stock photography discussion and contributor experience Posted August 4, 2017 Being relatively new to Alamy, I do not understand the intricacies of any of these (despite doing some research) and would value advice and opinions from those more familiar with Alamy. At present I am opted out of all of them and only opted into Image Options. Is there more information somewhere than the brief stuff that Alamy provides? What are the pros and cons of each of these? For a new contributor, who isn't a professional photographer, these things are not necessarily obvious.
