  1. I found this interesting article regarding the photograph of a First Nation woman mourning at a memorial for residential school survivors. Disclosure: I have four images on this subject on Alamy, no one is identifiable. Personally, I find this is disgusting. Here is the link. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/mourning-photo-getty-images-1.6120168
  2. Hi all, Hope you had a decent and healthy start to the new year - and 2021 will be huge improvement over the one just gone! I have been with Alamy since around 15 years, and despite a constant fall in commission, have so far stayed with them. In the last ten years on teh 1300 images I have up here, I made a average sale of just under 5 a year. Obviously nothing to make a living of. Most of my images are from China and editiorial. I have been a live news contributor. After working on the picture desk of the Asia hub of one for the four major news wires I have changed the way I keyword, following some of the methology on the picture desk. But the agency and Alamy are of course not using the same search algorithms (or clients). At the end of last year, I decided to do more in the way of Sale Optimisation. So over 65% of all my images now have a meaningful caption (which includes the key 5 W's), and I completed the Optional Info for those as well and completed 50 keywords, with 10 supertags. (not sure if anyone of us can see the keywords...) My QC rating is 2 solid dark stars, one light (whatever that means..out of 5?). It may be low due to having a past of uploading via FTP from location and on a few occasions having to re-upload due to some errors. The CTR for the last month is: "Total CTR for O. Geibel: 0.96" (fo the last 12 months). Archive of images here I plan to: 1. upload more editorial archive pictures of pollution and industrial production of China (another 1000 pictures this year) 2. optimize the remaining 35% 3. opt out of the "personal use including single copy, non-retail wall art prints" ( ...I may not really understand how to use this, or where the money is made here) Any critique and thoughts most welcome.
  3. For privacy reasons, is it okay to remove items like license plate numbers, addresses on houses, names on boats and name tags on people in a photo marked editorial?
  4. Hi Everyone, I’d joined Alamy last year but I’m only now beginning to upload more. So I’m fairly new here. I’ve a bunch of good images from concerts but unfortunately I do not have model or any press releases for them. They also include images of celebrities. Am I allowed to sell them as editorial? Is that legally allowed? Please advise on how I can licence them. thanks in advance for your time to help out a fellow contributor

  6. Hi all, If I use a website such as Blurb, or similar, to self-publish a book of photos which contain pictures of people and property, taken on public land, do I need to have 'permissions' for people/ property? I'm assuming that I do if I decide to sell the book. Is that correct? What if I were to sell the book and donate all profits to charity? Any ideas? Thanks 🙂
  7. Hi I'm slowly migrating my portfolio from SS to Alamy. All my images in Alamy are also in SS so according to the Alalmy policy I have to submit those images as RF. Many of those images are editorial in SS because there are people in them and usually I dont have the releases. In Alamy...if you were in my case would you tick the "editorial use only check box". I'm already stating I dont have the releases for those people. That's why it seems redundant and I'm afraid it might limit my sales. Also...would you tick the box if there were unrecognizable (very distant and small) people in the image? Thanks Karel
  8. 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
  9. Hello, Maybe this has been asked before but I'm researching now for hours and can't find an answer, so hopefully someone can point me to a good article or describe it with some rules to follow. The basics are clear but I still struggle for some pictures where it is not "exactly" clear if a property or model release is needed to sell it for commercial (maybe also for editorial). Here a few examples: a) Picture of a street, no person is really dominant in the picture but it is possible to identify the person (let's say you see more then 50% of the face) b) same situation as a) in the backround there is a car which could be identified as an BMW, Mercedes, etc. would I need a property release (I understand that property can also be a logo, brand/trademark, etc) c) Picture of a building (temple, church, tower, castle,...) from the streedt can be always used for editorial and for commercial if it is not protected by some other rules, correct? d) If I leave the street and enter a ground which is still open to the public (say there is no gate no entry fee, etc) can I still sell for editorial and commercial? e) If I enter a location where there is a gate/entry fee (park, castle, ...) can I sell for editorial without a propery release? f) Reading Alamy resources I got the following impression: I can offer a picture as editorial & commercial and if I state that I do NOT have a model/property release the customer can decide if he takes the picture or not (since there are different rules in different countries), so decision and risk are at the customer side, is this true? I hope someone can give some guidance with a few simple rules to follow. Thx, Andreas.
  10. 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.
  11. 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!)
  12. 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 🙂
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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.
  16. Hello, I am sure this question was asked before, but just in case Just got a new sale: $ 1.24 (Rights Managed) Country: WorldwideUsage: EditorialMedia: Editorial websiteIndustry sector: Travel & tourismImage Size: Any sizeStart: 12 November 2018End: 12 November 2023NU Editorial website and app multiple use, in perpetuity Question : is this a joke?
  17. 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.
  18. 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
  19. 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…
  20. 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
  21. 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?
  22. 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
