  1. I just went through about 10 portfolios, all photographers with thousands of photos and all more experienced than I, and only one was marking photos as editorial when they include recognizable faces and logos in them. None of them had model or property releases. It was very surprising and made me wonder why others aren't worried about legal issues or if I'm being way too paranoid about marking "editorial" for photos with people and brands.
  2. Hi I'm a new(ish) contributor. I thought I'd search Alamy to find out how high ranked my images were. To my surprise I find a photo of my house, with the 'details' bit saying 'Property: no' or similar. The image was available for all use, not just editorial. Looking further it appears that quite a few contributors simply choose 'no' when there's a property. What do people think? (I couldn't insert the image - wouldn't let me!)
  3. Q1. When shooting 'editorial' in a public space with only a limited number of people, is there a financial advantage in getting a model release for each individual, if it is practical to do so? Q2. Is there a consensus of opinion re including facial features in editorial as opposed to not including them. i.e. do back of head/ rear end shots fare better in terms of sales than those with identifying photos? Thx 🙂
  4. I've seen people mention "in perpetuity" licenses, but I don't see that option for one of my RM editorial photos (and I got an email from an editor who wants to use it, but without time limit). When I choose editorial/editorial website/duration, I only see the 5 years option; am I missing something? Is that not available for RM? https://www.alamy.com/bruce-siewerth-former-theater-teacher-at-evanston-township-high-school-image229036237.html
  5. 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
  6. Help! I have noticed that some images of books are selling as editorial only and others are okay for commercial use. Can someone explain why? I don't want to submit my images incorrectly.
  7.

  8. I know that photos from sporting events sometimes have different requirements than other photos with people and/or property in them. Should my horse racing images (with jockeys) be RF/Editorial Only or Rights Managed? Any advice or info would be deeply appreciated.
  9. Hello Stock industry expert Jim Pickerell has created a survey in an effort to gather data on the general income ranges of Editorial Still Photographers around the world. You can respond to the survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PhotogIncomeSurvey It’s open until mid-October, and you can read all about it on the Selling Stock website: http://www.selling-stock.com/Article/editorial-photographer-income-survey Thanks Alamy
  10. Hi I’ve been wrestling with this editorial/commercial question for some time and wonder if anyone here can clarify. I’m aware this may show some fundamental mis-understandings of editorial/commercial licensing on my part – but I’ve asked around and done my googling, and still don’t feel I know the answer… Say, for example, a commercial company is producing a brochure that is being distributed for free / is for educational or public information purposes only. Could they use ‘editorial only’ images within that particular brochure, or – even though the brochure itself is not commercial (in fact is being produced at cost to the company), as the company is commercial by nature – would they still need a commercial license for images, and couldn’t use editorial licensing/ ‘editorial only’ images? Or is it that, even though the brochure is being distributed free, it could still be argued, is still in some ways promotion for a commercial company… so images shouldn’t be ‘editorial only’ and a commercial license would be needed? Or… (bear with me!) have I understood it completely wrong… and it’s nothing to do with whether the company using the image is itself a profit-making company, but is solely down to the particular context of how an image is being used? EG, an article within their brochure about ‘benches’ could feature an ‘editorial only’ generic picture of a random bench – but if the article was about a particular bench – and required a picture of that one particular, exact bench – then the image no longer becomes editorial, and a commercial license would have to be bought? Thanks in advance! And over to you…
  11. Hello guys, I'm a 24 year old male student from cologne and just started to upload some pictures to Alamy. About 1 1/2 years ago I startet uploading some pictures I took with my smartphone to a german app called "Eyeem". Since then I uploaded about 500 random pictures without really thinking about my compositions and tags. If pictures pass the Quality-Chheck they are selected for a premium collection wich is accessable for Getty-Buyers. About 113 Pictures made it throug and earned me a total of 250 dollar over the last year. I now started to buy several photobooks and consumed a lot of online courses to step up my photography game (also switched from my Smartphone to Fuji X-E1). I'm also reading a lot in this forum to get an idea of what it takes to sell on Alamy. I now started to upload my first pictures. I really like alamy because of a it's low number of rejections and the community. I couldn't find any other stock plattform with such a nice and large community where everyone is welcome. I figured out that Alamy is mainly a platform to sale editorial pictures. I really like this idea and would like to start capturing editorial topics, but I'm not sure if Alamy is the right place to sell editorials from germany. So i would like to ask, if anyone of you has some experience with this topic or if you would advice me to upload to a german editorial stock agency instead. Stephen
  12. As others have reported anything I have tagged with 'mural' has been flagged and marked as editorial by Alamy. I asked Alamy what the difference between 'editorial' and 'unreleased' was and the reply was: So it seems 'editorial' and 'unreleased' are essentially the same but perhaps 'editorial' is a little more emphatic? Anyway, curious how others mark their images with unreleased people or property? Should we go back and add 'editorial' to them all? Or am I overthinking this?
  13. Hi, For all images that contain either people or any form of property, i always mark them as Editorial only, as my understanding is that these cannot be sold as commercial unless I obtain model/property release. Is this the right way to do? Thank you
  14. Hello Alamy, It seems to me that most of the buyers for editorial material are UK based websites and newspapers. Are there any photographers outside UK (preferably Canada) who can chime in about the chances of selling editorial photos from outside the UK (in my case: Canada) to international buyers? In other words is it even worth uploading reportage/editorial pictures from Canada on Alamy, or am I better off focusing on uploading travel and lifestyle photos? Thank you in advance for your response.
  15. Discovered an additional toggle box underneath RF today, giving buyers the option to include or exclude "editorial RF".
  16. Hi all, I recently visited the Serpentine Gallery in London and took a few pics of Grayson Perry's wonderful pink 'Patience' chopper. I have looked on their website re any restrictions regarding selling photos commercially and can find nothing specific that relates to this. Does anyone know what their policy is? Is it OK to put on Alamy for sale, if the sale is for Editorial purposes only? Any info much appreciated. Rgds, John
  17. Hi there, I'm trying to undestand how to submit editorial images: should I upload my pics as usual or should I follow another procedure? Where can I specify that those specific images are for editorial use only? Thank you for your help
  18. Hi, I'm having a few days in France next week and should have time for shooting editorial. I'm aware that thngs aren't as 'liberal' here as they are here (many years ago, long before I was shooting stock, I was bawled at by a French woman for shooting a group of people practicing martial arts in the Jardin de Luxembourg [iIRC]), but searchng the forums here on 'France' didn't highlight any obvious info. I Googled, and got some English language sites which weren't necessarily authoritative (and the info contradicted each other), and a couple of French sites which were probably authoritative, but neither my French nor auto-translate was up to the nuances. Does anyone know of an authoritative (not speculative) English language site where I can find what is and not permissable when shooting editorial in France? TIA
  19. I have editorial photographs that I want to license as RF but they are editorial. My understanding a couple of months ago was that we will be able to upload editorial Rf images soon. Has it happened yet or was I mistaken?
  20. 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
  21. Hello, I need some help with an editorial image I have uploaded. The Alamy tutorial explain to do this with restrictions: All countries - Consumer goods etc All countries - Advertising/promotion etc All countries - Direct mail etc All countries - Internal business etc All countries - Electronic and web uses Other All countries - Display etc The last two entries are not present in the restriction options. All I can see are two similar; Indoor display (not Display) and Commercial electronic not Electronic and web uses. Are these two the entries that I must use? Thank you
  22. Hi, newbie here! How do I indicate that a picture is editorial? Should I tick the box "editorial" under "restrictions", or does this mean that my pictures will NOT be sold as editorial if I do? This is confusing! Also I cannot seem to upload Live News photos through the web uploader -I followed the instructions online but never see the option to choose LiveNews. Help and thanks!
  23. Just out of curiosity, if an image is sold from a recent LiveNews upload batch, does it show up immediately in our "sold images" list or does it take some days/weeks? Regards Daniel Kaesler
  24. I happened to come upon a series of images by another contributor which are marked 'for editorial use only'. I ca't find this on any of my images without releasews, including those I uploaded via the news feed. Could somone please tell me what I've missed, presumably hiding in plain sight? TIA
  25. Commercial photography can mean any kind of photography that’s monetised in anyway, so in theory all Stock Photography is commercial… but wait… within the world of Stock Photography there are two categories of commercial photography; Commercial and Editorial. Read more...
