Title: Alamy VS Shutterstock
Post by: Alexandra Sam on July 03, 2018, 06:41
Hello!
I have portfolio on Shutterstock (400 photos). Can I submit exactly the same portfolio on Alamy?
If answer is "Yes" and I am going to have same portfolio on Alamy:
1) Which type of license must I use? Only Royality Free?
2) Alamy prices is higher than Shutterstock prices. Should I worry about this? If customer buy my photo from Alamy and than notice that he might buy the same my photo from Shutterstock but for lower price - customer will get angry. Or it's not my problem?  ;D
Thanks

Not your problem, but there's nothing to stop them getting a refund and buying cheaper elsewhere. Of course, they may not need a subscription at SS, or they might have a vast discount at Alamy.
Too many imponderables.

True, Alamy may be cheaper for some types of licenses. All depends, but no point worrying about it. I noticed Alamy recently disabled right-click Google Image Search (perhaps to stop potential buyers from searching), anybody else notice that or is it my PC?

No I got it too it also stops cheeky thieves right clicking and saving the image to their hard drive which you can still do with shutterstock

Correction : You can save a preview to your hard drive which is too large with weak watermarks  :'(
