I am new to Alamy and stock photos altogether. I have in the past week up loaded 10  to total photos all past QC. I got over the tagging key words etc... in  a couple tries so that my photos come up when I search them.

 

I have how ever not been 100% clear on the whether these images should be rights managed or royalty free. After further learning I feel most of my images should have been royalty free, unfortunately I cant seem to change this, even though non of my photos have sold. I would like to change this to maximize  the potential to sell my images but how can I do this?

 

Also how would this effect my account if I submit similar future images with a royalty free license?

I'll start from the end - don't mix RF and RM on similarities!

 

If you want to change license you should contact alamy by email and ask them about this. You can't change it by yourself.

You would need property releases for the tug and the temple for RF, and you can't get licence details of RF licences for a DACS submission unless you happen to track down the use yourself.

My DACS royalty was over 10% of my sales last year.

My feeling is that there now isn't really enough difference between RM and RF licenses on Alamy to warrant marking images as RF.

 

For awhile, I was offering some images as RF. None of them has ever leased, and I've gone back to using RM 99.9% of the time. I also don't have releases.
