If I'm not mistaken you can stop the move from both RM to RF, as well as RF downstream to Thinkstock/Photos.com. They will then be taken out of their present collection and "handed back" to you. 99% sure this was the case, but I haven't double-checked.

So basically if I understood it correctly Getty will be able to shift your images around, if you don't like it they can be taken out and "handed back" to you, but you can't demand/choose where they should be.

No you're not mistaken what you say is correct, after the initial contract came out and caused an uproar they made a statement that you would be contacted before any of your RM images were moved to RF, and then given the option to either specify why they shouldn't be moved (high production value or a promise to a model that the images won't be sold RF) or remove the images from Getty yourself.

For new RM images (post signing the contract) submitted to the house collection you have to specify either of those two reasons at the time of submission.

To further clarify things, RM images placed under the Photographers Choice (pay to play) scheme don't get moved to RF without your permission.

Though I am also wondering why this is being discussed on a microstock forum.

That sounds just like I remembered it! Nothing new really, Getty choose what they want to represent and where they like it to be, only real change is an additional layer of fluidity. (Hopefully) they should know more about maximising revenue than us.

I agree, but in who's favour  ;)

It is not only RM they want to keep lean...

I have nothing to add, I made my point above. This isn't a Getty forum, and you haven't explained the relevance of 'thinking of closing your iStock account, but worrying how long it would take to get  your pics taken out of TX' with your Getty contract.
There seems to be no direct correlation between the two.
As you were.
