Every user can sell pictures in our store. You may only sell images that you own the copyright. You determine the price for your pictures. We reserve a commission of 15% per image sold. This amount will be deducted automatically and the sales amount will be credited to your wallet and you can withdraw as usual. You can also set the license for your pictures yourself:
Rights Managed License (RM)
In a rights managed license the buyer needs to define exactly where the image will be used, this includes the number of copies printed or length of time the image will be in use, size of image and industry it will be used in. Because every image use is accounted for this allows for the buyer to exclusively license the image for use in their industry hence meaning that a competitor will not be able to license the same image (this sometimes becomes a problem with royalty free where anyone can download and use and image) RM licenses are very restrictive and you need to re-license the image to use it again in a different medium.
License for editorial use
Images which feature logos, brands, recognisable products, events or celebrities are licensed as editorial use meaning they can only be used as part of newsworthy stories. Editorial images cannot be used in any form of advertising or commercial application.
Royalty Free License (RF)
Royalty free has become the default license type of selling stock images. It allows flexibility to the designer in that an image only needs to be purchased once for use in unlimited applications. There are however some license limitations, you can usually print up to 1/2 million copies of the image in a publication but you cannot create a derivative products using the image (one where the image forms a part of the products reason for existence e.g. a poster, calendar or t-shirt) for that you need an extended license.
Royalty Free Extended License
An extended license extends the terms of a standard royalty free license so that an image can be used in derivative products (e.g. mugs, t-shits, website templates) there are usually limits on the number of products that can be produced/sold.
Creative Commons License
Creative commons licenses are a series of license types that were setup by a non profit organization to help photographers easily license their work. Creative commons licenses allow photographers to protect their work in simple to understand terms while still providing it for use free of charge to image users. Creative commons license always require an attribution (a credit to the image creator) and in a lot of cases require that derivative work be ‘shared alike’, images are often not available for commercial use.
This is usually an absence of a license agreement, the image creator has placed their work into the ‘public domain’ for use by anyone in whatever way they like.
