  • Promoting Your Stock Photography - Social Networking Pitfalls

    by Transformx | 16th of December, 2012

    I am new to DT and am pleasantly surprised to see that DT has in place a system for unauthorized usage. This begs the question of how and when to promote your own stock photography on other venues - particularly FaceBook, Twitter and other social networking. If you own... More
  • Plain Stealing

    by Elianehaykal | 26th of October, 2012

    So... I was informed yesterday by a dear friend that my husband's image is posted on Facebook: ArtPics Image It came complete with a "Wow! Please share this photo" description! It was credited to someone else, not to Georges Kyrillos. This was enough to make me... More
  • I'm confused. Can you help?

    by Fantasyart | 17th of October, 2012

    Sorry if my question is obvious, but I have not found an answer to this question. My question is this: What are the rights to be activated when you submit a photo or illustration? - Web Usage (W-EL) - Print Usage (P-EL) - Sell the rights (SR-EL, SR-EL 1, SR-EL 3)... More

  • Exclusive Rights

    by Sunguy | 20th of January, 2012

    Greetings Although my regular sales seem okay for a newbie ( 5 over the last week), it appears the real bucks are in someone buying the exclusive rights to an image. Does this happen very often or is it a rare occurrence. I would like to be able to upgrade my mode of transportation... More
  • I hate it...

    by Cristalloid | 8th of October, 2011

    using the google image finder one can find tons of watermarked images.... I hate it because many sites that use watermarked images are in hyroglyphic (non-arabic) fonts like Korean or Greek, have no contact adress, and if they have something like this they do not provide... More

  • Sell the rights

    by Cristalloid | 30th of May, 2011

    I am just thinking of enabling the SR-EL feature for some of my images. Before I do so I would like to discuss some questions with you. First: Is it a good idea for a part-timer (name it: hobbyist) like me to enable the SR-feature in general? Second: What is the... More

  • The rights of photographers when in Australia

    by Flexigav | 14th of January, 2011

    Although these laws come from the state of New South Wales, within Australia, they generally apply to the whole nation. First when it comes to privacy, unlike the USA, Australia does not have a Bill of Rights, so our laws are going to be different. In an article by... More

  • Unfair T&C’s on Ellesse Photo Competition

    by Chunshine | 28th of July, 2010

    A competition being run by Ellesse is grabbing the rights of all who enter for their own gain. How many of those who have entered this competition so far have actually read the T&C’s? How many of them actually understand what it is that is happening... More
