My friend is hobbyist for stunt sport, sky dive, parasail,etc. She and huby want to do colaboration with me I shoot for stock. But they don't like 25 cents low commission I make . Is it chance I get Rights Managed with Alamy , Feature Pics, Deviant Arts,etc
And how I choose for best practical price to sell.
Is it bad to give to Rights Managed, because I know many of you are Royalty Free
contributor. Is any one here experience for Rights Managed with Alamy,
do you think better or Editorial, for picture like this ?
Thank in advance .

If you have no Model and Property Releases, you have to set the pics as RM and Editiorial use only.

If setting as RM, you don't need to set it editorial only, just say a release is required and that you don't have it.

Hi madelaide,
for me, that's incorrect. http://www.alamy.com/contributor/help/image-licences.asp.
Also, when you're setting RM alamy says:
"Releases:   You must have model and property releases for relevant subject matter in an image. If you dont have them you can set restrictions to licence the image for Editorial use only."

That's interesting (second part). The general advice on Alamy's forums is that you set for 'no release' and that's enough. I've unset my restrictions based on that general advice - given that a) I've asked here and elsewhere for a link to an editorial only release, and haven't had any replies b) there isn't any way that I've seen that you can indicate that a release is valid for editorial use only.
It is up to the buyer to find out if their particular use is permissible (via their support team, if necessary).

That's what I knew. I think I even got an email from Alamy saying so when I was asking questions about the need of PR in some cases.

The problem for me is that sometimes I may not know when a PR is needed.

Found it.

Technically any image that contains property will need a release for commercial use. Its usually fine to say "yes this needs a release, no I havent got one" while annotating your images.

Its up to the contributors to decide whether or not they want to set additional restrictions for editorial only.

Yes, it's weird. I tend to tick 'yes' if it's anything other than a pure wildlife/landscape shot, even if I'm pretty sure it would be accepted by iStock. However, I am thinking about the Editorial market, so although I could be losing sales, probably not that many.
