Personal use ?


Question

Ive lived through all the stories about how some big customers get a discount and accept it.

But, how do people get to buy an image for personal use and get it below the ticket price?

Allan call it what customers are calling it in searches 😉

 

I meant that I would use "Lincoln village" in conversation only as a bit of fun.

 

I will still continue to keyword "Lincoln City".

 

Thanks for the suggestion of adding in UK.

Some of my PU licenses appear to be zoomed beforehand. I guess these aren't (?) typical buyers.

I think you're correct John. It seems likely that these are professional buyers using the PU loophole.

 

The only time I've traced a "zoomer" was when a nephew of mine searched for images (of him on a charity ride). He's an image buyer for a TV magazine so his zooms appeared in my Measures. No sale resulted of course they were for a charitable use  - and I'm a generous uncle!

I once had an image-buyer license two images for publication and then download a third one from the same set for personal use. It seemed a bit odd, but perhaps someone just wanted something to hang on the office wall. I do wonder about other PU zoomers, though.

It is a very good job that you are not trapped in Getty's infamous Premium Access system where pictures used by global media companies 'earn' less than $1 often less than $0.25.

 

That gives a different perspective on Alamy's PU fees.

I  am a Getty provider but to date have provided nothing. 😄
