Hi all,

I've been a hobbyist photographer for a few years (wrapped around the 40 hour week...) but I'm very new to stock photography, like about a week. I've passed my first QC for Alamy and Shutterstock and I'm waiting for a couple of others before I open more accounts. I've always applied a metadata preset including copyright on import into LR. I noted though, and I think from memory it was Alamy, it was said to take out the copyright metadata before submitting, which I duly did. My question is, do you more experienced folks just leave it in, and it is stripped automatically by most agencies, or should I just adapt my workflow and put my copyright data in after export?

Thanks very much in advance, Rob.

I leave mine it, and it's stripped and replaced by the companies (just iS and Alamy - but I don't remember hearing about any others requiring it to be stripped out).

I don't think they should be allowed, or even able, to strip it out, but who cares what I think.  >:(

Thanks Sue  :) Yeah I hear you, I'm still hanging out for that worldwide online copyright depository...one day
