Erik, sorry to get off track here, but I recognized your name... I think I used one of your small images on the bottom of the first page of this website in case you keep screenshots:

Sorry, back to the Alamy question.

You do not need to upload a model release. you just have to mark the box "model release available" in "manage images" if you do not sell it editorial.

.... but if you do tick the box you should have a signed model release clipped away in a file in your home/office/studio somewhere, just in case.

I know that should go without saying but, from what I hear on other forums, there are people who tick that box regardless.

If there are recognisable people in their picture they're taking a hell of a risk.

Maybe Alamy has another breed of photographers than Microstock.  All MS want a signed MRF. I upload to Alamy and MS, so I'm sure my MRF is OK.

Yeah you should not "tick that box" when you have no model release. That would be risky and not honest.

and it happens all too often.

I am rather sceptical of those people who have model and property releases for EVERY IMAGE they have in their portfolio - whether there is a model or not.... doesn't make me too certain that they actually have a release when they SHOULD have one.

Hey!

Thank you Pixart for use one of my photos on a website! I took that photo a long long time ago. :)

Now i anderstand, but its strange. Alamy realy trust in the Photographers.

Thank you everybody for the quick answer.

Erik  ;)

It's not that Alamy trusts or distrusts photographers at all.  If you tick the box to indicate that the image has a model/property release and it turns out that you didn't.. it's your butt that's on the line, not Alamy's.
