After reading through the Forum the last couple of days (yes the trust is gone!), I saw a lot of mentioning that personal use was tied up with distribution sales. So when one would restrict ones images for PU, one would also loose the distribution sales... Not true! I asked MS yesterday and they confirmed that this is no longer the case, so one can easily restrict all images from PU now without loosing the distribution sales. <quote> Hi Arthur, Restricting your images for personal use no longer opts your images out of the distribution pool. The distributors can choose not to accept them, but this is rare, so you can restrict your images and still be included in distribution. Thanks, Siobhan <unquote> Have a great weekend all. Arthur
Gordon Scammell posted a topic in Stock photography discussion and contributor experienceHaven't got round to removing PU on a lot of of my images yet. Just had one pop up today. The interior of a Pret a Manger - Personal Use? Yeah - right. I have been looking at my PU sales over the past few years and have noticed that quite a lot of them have discounted prices. How come a person who wants to use one of my images for the their 'non commercial use' can negotiate a discount? Why does Alamy allow these images to be licensed for less than the stated price? I have always been led to believe that discounts are applied to 'bulk' sales. Obviously I'm wrong but would appreciate some sort of explanation from Alamy. I doubt I'll receive one but I am getting royally p****d off with being shafted.
