Follow these instructions:

  2. Click 'Edit Photo' and then scroll to the bottom
  3. Click 'Edit' next to the people icon
  4. Tap on the person's face and provide their first and last name
  5. After you've tagged the person, a list of options will pop-up.
  6. Click on the appropriate option to get permission from the model (scroll down for instructions on how to give permission for yourself or your child)

Once you've asked, the permission will be pending until the person has approved the photo for use.

               

 

How to Request Permission from the Website:

  • Navigate to your gallery & choose the photo that you want to get permission for
  • Click "Add People" (directly below photo)
  • Tag a recognizable face with the model's first and last name, then click "Done"

(Scroll down for next steps)

To request permission from the model, you can choose between these 3 options: 

  • Send the model an email by providing their email address and pressing 'send'
  • Copy the message in the box and send it to the model any way you want
  • If you have no way to contact the model, click on "I Don't Have Their Info"

Once you've asked, the permission will be pending until the person has approved the photo for use.

 

If the model in the photo is YOU:

  • Click on "This is Me"
  • Provide your first and last name, and your email address
  • Check the box to certify that you are 18 years or older (If you are not, scroll down for guardian releases)
  • Provide your digital signature and click the blue button

 
To give a model release for YOUR CHILD, follow these steps:
  • Click on "This is My Child" (Make sure you tagged your child's name on the photo)
  • Provide your first and last name, and your email address
  • Check the box to certify that you are 18 years or older
  • Provide your child's first and last name, then click Next
  • Provide your digital signature and click the blue button

    If someone just have one word name like doni, is it fill doni on first name and " " / blank in last name, or fill both doni in first and last name?

    When I hire a model for a photo shoot, I pay them and have them sign a model release. How do I send you copies of my releases? It would be such a pain to send them an email and take forever, none the less.

    Hi, @Yuleono. Great question! In the stock photo world, every recognizable person in a photo needs to provide a model release in order for that photo to be sold commercially. Photos without model releases can still be sold for editorial use.

    @Dan, @Kristiyan - Stay tuned! We're in the process of updating our model release flow which will make it easier for subjects to provide releases for multiple photos at once.

    May be sometime e-mail to model they did not respond or did not see that mail
    I have a paper model release that they sign at shoot date.How I can attach the model releases instead of send email to model

    You need to update your model release flow and allow paper releases (1 release for the entire shoot.) It's ridiculous to expect that a model will sign your email releases for every image we upload to your site. I think you have less than 5 percent commercial releases and over 95 percent editorial because of your stupid model release policy.

    @weezdeszign @Dan Herron - Thanks for your feedback!

    We currently have a new model release flow down the pipeline, and I'm happy to share the rest of your feedback regarding paper releases with the team. Thanks again!
