I noticed just today that Alamy has opt in/opt out services ( the novel uses and partner sales ). It annoys me to no ends that I was a member there for 6 months and never knew about that.

Are any other websites with such options? I only know about Shutterstock and Alamy.

For the YAY micro list - you can add that you can opt out on a per-agency basis.

With all due respect, that's not Alamy's fault that it took you 6 months to find that out.

If it was such an urgent issue you could have at least contacted Member Services and they would have told you where the opt-out page is located.

BTW, I've been with Alamy for seven years now and they always had the option of opting out of partner sites and Novel Use.

@click_click: I didn't even say it was their fault  :D It's just that I never imagined that you can opt in or out for that, I thought I was automatically in. And I don't want to opt out, I want to opt in. Now I'm thinking that I might have missed a few sales and it's a bit annoying, that's why I asked about other websites, I don't want to miss more sales.

You are correct, it was my mistake for claiming that it wasn't Alamy's fault.

I understood your post as if you were annoyed that agencies didn't approach you and ask you whether you want to opt in or out from certain services.

As time goes on and you join more agencies you will notice that this is indeed big jungle to explore whether an agency allows opting in/out or nothing of that at all.

There are plenty of reasons why Alamy (and other agencies) allow contributors to opt out from partner sales.

Some contributors would like to have their portfolio spread all over the globe no matter how small the sale can be.

Others are concerned about the privacy or safety of their models and therefore don't allow certain distribution.

Novel use was a big disappointment. I dare to assume that you wouldn't have been happy with it anyway.
