Wouldn' it be nice.....?

posted on 8th of september, 2009

Would't it be nice for contributors if they would't know for what purpose a picture is downloaded? I would really appreciate if I would know in what magazine, book, paper, website or whatever a photo of me is used.
Would't it be nice for the photographer if DT creates a possibility for the buyer/designer to let him know why/for what purpose he or she downloaded and used the picture? Of course that would be no obligation only a possibilty.
I think contributors would really appreciate that.
What's your opinion?

Yes, it would be nice, or at least if DT users recognize other creations on market so the lucky one can find about it in a separate blog (eg." DT downloads in action").

Yes but if its used in a magazine does it only cost a few cents ? If I sell a magazine cover shot its £50 or more paid to me ! I still dont understand a lot about this DT form of selling. also I see 20 students in one image. Do they all have to sign model release papers ? What a lot of trouble unless the image sells outright ! David.

Could be great, but no obligations I agree. Cheers!

Buyers can already leave comments on an image, and are given the suggestion on purchase, but as discussed many times it takes a lot of time and in many cases the buyers are buying several images from which a final selection will be done. I have had a few images purchased where the buyer told me the final use... It is nice when you find out, though!

I would like to know also. Just for congratulate and see my image in use...
