Hi all,
i have a lot of model pics (5000+) with older iStock MRs which don't have visual IDs since they're old (2005-2011).
Many agencies reject my pics for MR issues.
How can i solve it?

Add reference images. There's nothing to say you can't edit, correct or adjust a model release to make it compliant. Also keep in mind, the release is for the agency's protection, not a legal requirement. If the model comes at them, they have a release. In court if you have a legal release, that was authentic at the time it was used to authorize the photos use... it's still legal. You are protected.

All the nit picking from some agencies and the changing requirements are much like other changes and rules, made by the agencies. They are not necessarily legal requirements, they are agency requirements. Your old releases would be just fine and hold up in court, if necessary.

I don't know if people here understand the difference? We can make and sell many images that the stock agencies don't take or will refuse based on their own legal preferences and interpretations. Everything from public domain, out of copyright to news.

So back to the beginning, correct and edit the original release (save the unaltered original!) to meet the agency requirements. Happy Sales

You can just add a picture to the release in photoshop or something, take a shot from the shoot - put the picture in the corner or somewhere it fits.  That is what I do with all my new releases so you should be able to do it with an old one as well.
