Okay, so I just signed up with Cutcaster, and don't understand which name will be used where.

copyright holder - is this only viewed by buyers and for the copyright line?  Is it visible with your images - because if it is I may use an initial instead for the first name.

username - where is this name displayed?

alias - who sees this name and where?

Thanks to anyone who can enlighten me here. :-\

At this stage it is as follows:

User name - Use for logging in. Not externally displayed but if you do an advanced search, you have to use it in the "Member" field (nice for us but totally useless to buyers, unless your user name and alias are the same - took it up with John - will see if he agrees and make some changes or not).

The Alias is show next to you pictures in The "Photographer" field, while the copyright holder is also displayed next to your picture in the "Owner" field.

Hope that at least help a bit Lola (you are not perhaps a showgirl?)

Thanks - that pretty much explains it.  The alias and username seem redundant though, and what's the point of using an alias when the copyright holder's name is on the photo anyways?

Oh, and artist - yes,.........showgirl - no.  LOL 

"lola" is just a name I like. 

Thinking to self........."I wonder if showgirls would want to waste their time doing stock, for pennies a day - hey, wait! - 'pennies a day' - doesn't some charity have that slogan?"
