You want to sell your photos and earn a good income. Selling photos over the Internet has become easier but you must know the licensing aspect of your business. Selling a picture requires you to inform under what license you are giving the image to your customer. The type of photography licensing under which an image is sold determines how that image can be used by the buyer.
Customers not looking for complete ownership of the image choose “one time use right”. It means the buyer can use the image only at one place like a blog post but not at other places or in other projects. A “print release right” is issued for personals use photographs like wedding photos. People hiring photographers for personal events get the right to use their photos for personal use and to post on their social media pages. The license ownership of these photos remains with the photographer. A “copyright release” allows the buyer to use the image in any way.
