In addition, a guarantee of rights in the photo license agreement can be useful. It confirms that the licensor owns and can actually transfer the rights of use. In order for the licensee to be exempted from claims by third parties, it is necessary to agree on an exemption from liability. Generally speaking, there are no correct or erroneous image licensing rules. The requirements you place on your licenses depend on the actual images and usage. CC and stock licenses are more suitable for amateur photographers and typically generate little or no revenue. However, professional photographers are better off without a CC license and should opt for agreements with clearly defined terms of use. Make sure you have a license agreement for every photo shoot you do for a client. It can save you money and potential problems on the other line. The user agreement should indicate whether the license is exclusive or not.

It should also describe its use. LICENSE – This is the price that the licensor charges the licensee in exchange for rights allowing the use of one or more images in a manner prescribed by the license. The royalty can – and will – be based on factors such as editing, reproduction size and specific image qualities. Royalty Free licenses offer you the potential to make money relatively easily for your photos, but it is also possible to generate low income. If you share licensed images with image agencies, you can reach a much more targeted audience for your images, but not all images sell as well. Fees vary depending on the agency and images. UNLIMITED USE – That`s pretty much what it seems.
