Ratios for the site

As mentioned, here is the new updated ratios.




The number of sizes available is relative to the number of different sizes we offer across all of our products.

So if you take 1:1 has 14 different size selections. There might be 5 sizes in prints, 6 in canvas, 4 in framed prints and 7 in acrylics. But there is duplicates in sizes but after a size is counted, it won't be added again to the total.

When creating your files, anything with 3+ "different sizes avaliable" gives a good spectrum of size options. 1-2 size sizes avaliable really limit the customer in their choice.


Danger Zone means that if possible, keep the ratio below that level because there isn't many products which can be made and sent out and they are not at all popular.


There is a tolerance of 10%. This means that if there is a square picture but off by a couple pixels, it would bring up all the square products that would be within the 10% tolerance. It would bring up all the square and all the products within that boundary.

Model Release -- Official Standing

We have recently taken into account a lot of member feedback and the on going discussion about model releases and pictures taken in public.


We have reached out to solicitors and we have welcoming news.

 

Any photograph, regardless for commercial or private taken in the public or in a public space can be used and sold. If the image were taken in private, such as a studio or in someone’s private living space, a release form would be needed.


If the person whose picture was taken and they were in a public space/area and demanded funds or the removal of said image, would ultimately come down to the photographer’s discretion.

Therefore to summarize,

Pictures of elders, adults and children, etc whose picture was taken in a public space need no model release and are perfectly acceptable to upload and sell. Please be respectful on how they are portrayed, especially children.

Picture taken in someone’s private living area or in a private setting must require a model release.

 

This new policy is effective immediately.
