Jools Devon Posted June 5, 2019 Share Posted June 5, 2019 Hi Gang This was brought up in another thread - but I thought it might warrant its own discussion..... When should the "Sell for Editorial Only" Flag be used? I am correctly labelling whether the image has a model or property release. I understand that without a release images are fine for use Editorially. I understand that for "Commercial Use" described as the following:- "Commercial use of an image covers images that are being used to sell, promote or endorse a product or service, or raise money for a cause. This includes advertising, marketing materials, promotions, publication covers and consumer or merchandising products." the image would require a release. So that leaves a grey area of Personal Use, and maybe use by a company for internal presentations - where do these sit? Reading some of the blogs doesn't help a great deal! This one says "Don’t worry, if you don’t have a release, we can still sell your images for editorial uses. If you’re sure the image can only be used editorially, you can select the ‘sell for editorial only’ button in the optional tab while annotating your images in Alamy Image Manager. " https://www.alamy.com/contributor/how-to-sell-images/model-property-releases-stock-images/?section=7 So - if your not sure, can you leave it unchecked? This Blog for Buyers, explains when releases are required - seems to be clear that its up to the buyer/publisher to check that the correct releases are available https://www.alamy.com/help/what-is-model-release-property-release.aspx I'm reading it that you would only check "sell for editorial only" if you had a specific reason why that image was only suitable for editorial, and not any other use. How do you use this flag? Cheers Jools Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
