Looks like we can block these "personal use" licenses that should be re-named Personal Abuse.

So far I've had two Personal Use sales -- one for $25, the other for $13.88. That's fine with me; I have had lower-priced "regular" sales.

I understand that point of view, Geoff.

 

My personal involvement with Alamy includes planning shoots, shooting, PP, and keywording. Basically, I trust Alamy to do the best they can with everything else. And this is not a co-op agency. Of course as a retired pro and a senior, I'm not building a career. This is what I do now instead of playing golf or watching daytime TV. Many contriburors have different levels of involvement. Good on 'em.   :)

My goodness! Thanks, ReeRay.

 

And I've very interested in hearing the thoughts on the image-size question you posted.  :D

Well, one of our forum heroes (cough) threw Ed a coward's arrow and knocked him back down to 999 . . . rectified :-)

LOL -- it's not me! That's George C. Scott working on his makeup as Abraham in the film The Bible. I see you've gone show business, too.

Was that an official announcement or just a hint?

No, it's official: selfies are "in" in Manhattan . . . ;)

It's been talked about a lot lately because they are sometimes used for non-personal use. Some clients seem to be purchasing PU as it's the cheapest way to get the non-watermarked hi-res image, then using it for other purposes. That's why some want to opt out, not because of the fees.

+ another, providing we can be assured that only low res images are being supplied for the low priced presentation use, otherwise this will be used instead by these clients. My last presentation use to show the size of image supplied said a 60MB 5616 x 3744 pixel image was supplied, ie full sized, totally not necessary for a presentation, "Use in slides/materials to support a presentation or talk - such as Powerpoint or Keynote.".

I'm interested to know if anyone can provide an example of someone buying an image then abusing the personal use license. And if anyone can do so did they report it to Alamy and what was the outcome, i.e. was a new license issued at increased sale price?

I prefer to have Alamy and the customer deciding on the restrictions. I simply indicate the lack of a release.
