I'm confused. Can you help?

posted on 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)
use recommended price (recommended price: $250) or set a price $

I have seen that I have activated one, two or all in various illustrations.

And if this is not well do so. So I turn to the experience of you. What do you recommend on or off?

I want to thank to Jackbluee, Vilaimages, Fengai, Bradcalkins, and Elifranssens for the answers and suggestions they have given me. They have been helpful to clarify my ideas

Web and Print. No selling of rights except for my exclusive images...

I do web and print, but not sell the rights. If you are exclusive the SR-EL is an option (you have to disable it within a few days so having it uploaded elsewhere is a problem), but keep in mind a buyer can request the SR-EL whether you enable it or not, and you have the chance to set a price. I prefer it that way, then I only have to decide if it ever happens, rather than try to track it on so many files... Also consider, though, that if you set the price for the SR-EL, you may get the 1 year option and only net 1/8 the listed price. If set to $250 you only get $31 - hardly worth disabling a file for a year...

I did a little research and then I realize I should should choose W-EL AND P-EL, but not SELL THE right. Although my image maybe not so valuable but for long term I think should not sell the right. Sorry that I almost mislead you. Thank you for asking. I didn't think of the extended rights before. You just helped me.

I selected all of the items and the selected price $ 500

I activate all license types to give the most options to a potential buyer. If you need to know what a specific license means, you can do some research on the contributors tab.
And I leave it to the experts at Dreamstime to determine prices as they know a lot better than I do what are the competitive values compared to other stock agencies.

I never choose any of them. The "use recommended price" is automatically checked. I've been uploaded that way for almost 2 months.
