losdemas Posted November 2, 2014 Share Posted November 2, 2014 Some questions I hope you can help with. 1. What's the general consensus as to size of .jpg to upload to the system? Or isn't there one?! Do you upload the max. that you think the uploader can manage without timing out, or do you just upload low resolution thumbnails? And in either case, what size do you upload? 2. In an effort to save both time and money, I had thought of uploading as many files in one shot as possible - files which cover various years. However, it seems this may be difficult to do without creating potential legal problems further down the line should there be a case of infringement to pursue. E.g. As the “Year of Completion (Year of Creation)” clearly cannot be later than the “Date of First Publication”, if I upload some images taken (or rather, “first published”) in say, 2011, along with images taken in 2014, I (presume I) have to put 2014 as the year of creation (?), as some are from this year. Yet some will have been ‘published / available’ (i.e. licensed or sold; for license or sale; or just viewable on the Web) from 2011. In such a case, would this just be an issue for images which brought up an infringement which first occurred prior to 2014? I’m probably just fretting too much, but I didn’t want to register everything, and then potentially create future problems for the complete registration on this technicality. I’m sure that someone must have come across this problem before, as to actually register everything 100% correctly, you have to create a newly registered batch of all new images and upload to eCO, prior to putting those images up for license or sale, or anywhere on the Web at all, no? This would not only take forever, it would also cost a fortune, unless you upload 000’s of images at a time? 3. And just to clarify - files which are available for license here on Alamy (or elsewhere - including POD sites, personal Websites - in fact, anywhere on the Internet) are deemed to be “published” files in the view of the UCO, correct? Thus the higher fee is payable ($55 rather than $35)? Please feel free to PM me if you don't wish to publicly discuss what you do, or have done in this regard. Many thanks.
