  1. I'm new to Alamy and this is my first post to this forum. I've been trying to do my homework by reading up on different topics. The two license types, Royalty Free and Rights Managed have me baffled as far as which one is better to use . By looking at the images of several contributors, I've noticed there are definitely two camps when it comes to license types. I can't seem to get a good handle on why one person prefers RF while another prefers RM. Does one have a distinct advantage over the other or is it just personal preference? Correct me if I'm wrong but it seems as if the RF contributors are possibly amateurs using the "shotgun" approach by throwing thousands of images online and playing the numbers game. The RM contributors may be more professional and selective about what they post. They may treat their images more like art and feel their work is worth using the RM license. I started out using RM but switched to RF. Now I'm wondering if that is what I really want to do. I'm trying to make an informed decision here and would love to hear from anyone interested in putting in their two cents worth. Thanks Scott
