  1. I have been looking at my sales and notice the following sales detail seems to be on the increase. Country: Worldwide Usage: iQ sale: Magazine, Editorial print and digital use. Repeat use. Industry sector: Media, design & publishing Start: 05 August 2015 End: 05 August 2020 I realise we hand our image over to Alamy and agree that they are able to negotiate prices etc etc... I also recognise that the market is very difficult and prices reflect this BUT we mark our images as RM for a reason over RF and I can't help but feel that this is RF by the back door. Yes it has a 5 year term but the wording "Repeat Use" basically means its a 5 year RF license ... Maybe we need an iQ opt-out the same as Novel Use, Distribution etc..... I'm not saying I would opt out but it does need a great deal of thought..... Your Thoughts?
  2. Just wondering how someone can have an image with people in it and no releases, yet have a Royalty Free license. I thought it automatically gets set to RM if you indicate you don't have a release. Yet I've just run across some that are RF with people and no releases.
  3. If I have a photograph of an individual who is wearing Oakley sunglasses, but you can't really tell they are Oakley (I know they are Oakley), can I sell the image without making it for editorial use only (since I clearly don't have a release from Oakley)? I do have a model release from the individual.
  4. I have looked at the threads and some of this has been covered, but as a January forum newbie, I have a question about releases, I am aware of the difference between RF & RM, but I have some images of a model, that I think could sell with model release, but haven't asked them to sign the release. I know model releases are partly about people suing you in the future, amongst other things, but I wondered if you have a model release will that make the image more saleable in monetary terms in general? Or is it only more valuable, If it is used in a advert of some description, or am I wrong to think that? Thanks
  5. I've been with alamy for 8 years now and I see a drastic reduction in the fees paid for my images. Just sold yesterday an RF image (Alamy Ref CY2NJY) with these terms: Country: Worldwide Usage: Editorial Media: Textbook - print and e-book Print run: Unlimited Placement: Inside Image Size: 2 page spread Start: 01 January 2014 End: 01 January 2039 All terms and rights granted as per the Alamy Preferred Vendor Agreement dated 26th January 2010 prevail. Flat rate per image, license period 20 years. Calculator price: $1970 Paid $180. After commission, only $90 Happened 5 times this and last year with huge 90%+ discount.. literally lost thousands of dollars in the last 2-3 years due to this pricing structure. Communicating with Alamy about this issue generates only standard responses about clients, discounts, and hope you understand followed with thank you for being a loyal contributor... (BS) Either there is some meaning the calculator or not. Why not inform the photographer of the deep discount and supply some kind of logic to the way Alamy is pricing our images and can anyone explain what does "All terms and rights granted as per the Alamy Preferred Vendor Agreement dated 26th January 2010 prevail. Flat rate per image, license period 20 years." means......
