Is it convention when submitting images of vehicles to clone out registration numbers, particularly on close ups or am I being unnecessarily cautious?

I leave them in, and leave it up to the publisher to crop or blur etc etc, I did used to blur them myself until I had one fail QC for obvious retouching

Like Rob - York Photographer - I leave them for the end user to worry about as long as the right boxes are ticked in the annotation of the image.

I used to take them out, but don't bother now. Like others I make sure the appropriate boxes are ticked and leave it to the end user.

When I was first discovering the tricks of Photoshop. I confess I changed a few number plates. an E to an F for instance but I still didn't claim to have any releases, but gave it up pretty quickly. Life's too short!

Leave them alone, you'll have to mark anything you fiddle with as digitally altered - suppose you put a legit number on by altering a couple of digits ?

 

It is down to the publisher if they use it commercially and you haven't got the property release ......

Hi

 

I'd like to restart this one.

 

Suppose I have a property release but the owner of the property doesn't want the number shown.

 

I'd have no problem in removing the number but would it casue any problems with Alamy.

A false registration is good (be sure it is invalid) but the owner of a car cannot give a property release, only the manufacturer or the builder if it is a custom. The owner does not get any rights to the IPR beyond using and enjoying it, same with paintings, sculpture or indeed a photographic print (unless expressly granted by the creator, very unusual)

Just change it into a combination that doesn't exist. Much better than a blurred license plate. It's inconspicuous and the attentive viewer will notice its a fake registration number.

The picture below isn't about license plates, it's about changing tyres  -_-  Wouldn't cause any problems with Alamy.

Nice Lazarus post ;-)

 

Funny: to me that reads Haarlem Haarlem.

(Haarlem is where I live; 023 is the area code)
