  1. A couple years ago, my daughter said she'd like to use one of my images for a print on her office wall. Of course, if it had been for her house I would have just given it to her. Since it was for the office and her employer was paying the bill, I suggested she go through Alamy with their connection to Art.com. Part of my motivation was to see how the process worked. It was a big disappointment. She worked with a person in Alamy's New York office who previously negotiated a great license fee for one of my images and about whom I have nothing but good things to say. In this case, however, he said that Alamy and the photographer would be commissioned on a print of up to 10x13 inches. For anything larger (roughly 2x3 feet in her case, framed) she should just buy a personal use license and deal directly with Art.com. So I got a few bucks on what turned out to be a sale of several hundred. Now, from my location in Europe, I go online to Art.com and see this message: So not only do we make next to nothing on a print sale, we only can make that on sales to American buyers. An old friend and sometime professional cohort of mine is spending his later years running an art gallery in which he does digital printing and framing. His opinion of FAA, Art.com, and similar POD outfits is that, for quality, "you might as well go to Walmart." That leaves me in a quandary as to where to turn for offering prints. I'm not ready to buy a printer and try it myself. Plus, I like the set-and-forget aspect that POD clearinghouses offer. This post is already too long, so I won't get into my experience with FAA and why I'd rather not deal with them. Anyone have suggestions as to the best way to offer prints?
  2. So I opted out of personal use so that Alamy would not offer prints of my work and yet I click on one of my images for sale and i see ... What are your thoughts? Is it not available as an option when you get through to the order?
  3. Hi, New guy here I have couple of questions I couldn't google answers to... I hope you guys could help me here. First just wondering about if it's allowed to have image sold as rights managed licence exclusively and also have the exact same photo selling on print on demand site (Fine Art America) at the same time? As far as I know Fine Art America only sells prints and now licences? Also if I'm having a original photo selling as right managed licence in Alamy but also I have different edit of the same photo for example added light spot with lens flare and reduced size and selling it on microstock site... Is this allowed to do? Thanks!
  4. I just noticed early this morning that Alamy Prints is now live on some of my pages. Prices range from $14.99 USD for an 8x10 inches to U$ 79.99 USD for 54 x 26 inches. Images where I've restricted Personal Use don't have the red Print button. Any thoughts?
  5. For those of you who uploaded images to Saatchiart - I just found that my images are displayed in huge size when click on it, large files ready for easy print screen and to use it without ANY watermark! They must have changed it lately and I never got the email with warning what they are planning to do... Check out your collection if you care about protection of your work. You don't have to use right click to zoom it. Just normal click opens the file in full screen size! :| Btw, last few months I've found some of my files in the same size in few places on the internet and wondered where did someone grab it from... Now I have my answer Btw 2, I joined about two years ago and have zero sales still, so it's not worth to keep the images on there (at the same time I sell with other POD sites...). It's a dead place, now sharing our work.
