Is it a matter of the auto being identifiably manufactured by the brand? Then is it possible to strip the logos and manipulate an image using Photoshop in order to make the auto/train so generic that you're  free from needing any release?

 

No need to on Alamy. You can do the following

  1. Set the Licence type to "Rights Managed" and mark "Is there any property in the image" as Yes, and then mark "Do you have a signed release for the property" as No. Images marked like this can be used editorially (where Alamy gets most of its sales) and it leaves the option open for the publisher to make their own judgement whether they can use the image for other things (e.g. commercial), depending on the content of the image and their application, local laws etc. If you want to prevent the publisher exercising their discretion, then also tick "Sell for Editorial only".

    OR
     
  2. Set the Licence type to "Royalty Free" and mark "Is there any property in the image" as Yes, and then mark "Do you have a signed release for the property" as No. Now tick the "Sell for Editorial only"

You can attempt to crop or edit the image so the property in the image becomes unrecognisable. But if you then mark "Is there any property in the image" as No, that's not really true. So it's your risk.

 

I think most folks here do 1 or 2.

Thanks,

Yes if you want to sell as commercial. But if you haven’t got them they can still sell as editorial.

Absolutely! They count as intellectual property owned by the manufacturer (particularly in the case of a car) or owner (in the case of something like a train which no doubt has logos on the side). Even just the shape of a car is enough to recognise it and so require a release for commercial use.
