DDoug Posted May 4, 2016 Share Posted May 4, 2016 Some time ago I found an image I'd sold to a magazine (in conjunction with an article I wrote, i.e., not through Alamy) published in an unrelated website in another country. When I contacted the offending Web publisher, he cordially took it down. The way he got the image was by copying from the website of the magazine publisher, who had posted it not at full size but certainly large enough for any kind of web use. This seems to be the problem: you sell it once for print and because the magazine also has a Web version, the image is effectively given away to anyone whose mouse has a right button (or, for Mac users, an Option key). I would like to see some kind of size limit placed on web use, say maximum 400 pixels on the long side. Either that or watermark it. One possible solution would be to have a "print only" button as well as, or instead of, an "editorial only" button. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
