IanButty Posted December 18, 2018 Share Posted December 18, 2018 With Jame's announcement about 50% commission for Alamy exclusive images, we all need to get our heads round how to manage this. I'm creating this thread to deal with those technical questions. I really don't want it to be a thread about the rights and wrongs of what has been announced. So here's some of my questions: Is there a way to bulk change images to being exclusive? Is setting an image as exclusive a 'once for all time' decision on the Alamy website (such as setting RM vs RF) - I'm more than happy to make my images exclusive (at least for a while) but at a later date I may decide that I'm better off switching to non-exclusive - can I switch images back? I know I have some images currently set to exclusive - how do I search Alamy to find out which of my images are exclusive and which are not? What really counts as 'Exculsive to Alamy'? James mentioned we can still sell these images directly - what counts as a direct sale? The grey area for me is "Photographers Direct" it's a site that puts people looking for images in contact with photographers who can supply images. All sales are handled directly by the photographer and not by PD - do that still count as a direct sale? (It may be academic for me as I haven't had a sale via a PD referral for years so I might just pull all the images off there anyhow to avoid any conflict) If you have your own questions about exclusivity why not add them to this thread so we have one place as a point of reference? And if you have answers to any of my questions I'd be grateful. Ian. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
