  1. Thanks Betty the mention of editorial also shed a bit of light. I only realised I might have to read extensively as well but you mentioned the lines between the two have been blurred.
  2. POSTING FOR ANYONE WITH SIMILAR QUESTION: Understanding stock image licensing As a photographer you retain the copyright. Alamy just licenses your stock images for customers to use. There are two image license types you can choose from: RM stands for Rights Managed. With this license, the customer only pays for what they’re using the image for. Rights Managed licenses can define how, where, when or for how long an image is being used. RF stands for Royalty Free. Customers pay a one–off fee to use the image with no restrictions on how they use it, or how long they use it for. RF images can be used across multiple projects, forever. Our customers are increasingly asking for broader rights so we’d recommend selling your images as RF but the decision is yours. You can choose a different stock photo license for each image you upload, but we suggest not giving the same or very similar looking images different licence types. If images contain people or property they need to have the right releases to be sold for commercial use. If you choose to sell all your images under one license type, you can set a default by clicking the cog button in Alamy Image Manager.

  4. Hello there. I am new to Alamy and am essentially still finding my footing in the stock photography world. On uploading my images I have come across the terms RM or RF. Which one do you think one should go with and why or under what circumstances.
