Can I Put My Alamy Snaps on Facebook?

Question

I'm wondering if I would be doing something wrong if I put some of my Alamy images on Facebook or Instagram? They would have the Alamy watermark on them. The reason I'm asking about this is I found Alamy's decision about not marking snaps of art work as exclusive strange.

You can put pictures that you have marked exclusive on Alamy on Facebook and Instagram. This was something that I queried when Alamy introduced the exclusive stuff into the contract last year and I got a definitive answer from James Allsworth both on the forum and when we met him in person at one of our meet-ups. My question was related to terms in the Facebook and Instagram contracts that allow them to sub-license your images royalty free but James said it was not a problem (as with POD or personal website). 

 

I am not clear why you would want to upload pictures with an Alamy watermark on them though as you could simply provide a link to the images on Alamy on Facebook if you are trying to advertise them for sale. On Instagram I think the links are supposed to be in your bio but you could mention that in the image caption.

I frequently put my Alamy watermarked photographs on both Facebook and Twitter.  It is a form of marketing.  I have, infrequently, seen zooms on photographs I have put on Twitter - although that could be coincidence.  
 

As I am largely a news shooter it can lead to “news leads” as happened just last week.  I posted a Facebook picture and a contact got in touch and said he had seen the photograph and that I may be interested in a local covid related event.
