Editorial Image Question

Hi everyone!

I do not have any editorial images online, but I have a question for those of you who do. Do the editorial images allow you to upload pictures with the faces of people you don't have releases for? For example, if you take a picture of the people in the stands at a football game, you are going to inevitably have people's faces in the photograph. Is that acceptable as an editorial image? Clearly it is not as a regular stock image.

Anyway, if someone who has editorial images could shed a little light on this elusive (to me) area, I would really appreciate it.

Thank you!

Here is a copy of one of my photographs. Enjoy.

Ok great. Thanks for all the info guys!!!


YEP !! you can upload them as an editorial. It will be use only for educational purposes: newspapers,educational books etc...


I have same question.now, I see ,thank Frantab.


You dont need model release for editorial images, even if its people or protected buildings. Check my portfolio i have many editorial images.


A lot of the photographers who specialize in travel photos submit as editorial. There is a market for it but it is more limited than the commercial one. I've submitted editorial photos that have already had some downloads.


I had a question regarding the model release also. Will a model release only be seen by the DT admin, or will buyers also have access to it too?


Damithri is right and has answered your ques - i think it's best if you want more feedback to search the message boards and post this message there :) good luck


Yes, pictures with people's faces can be uploaded as an editorial image if there is no model release, however editorial images have limited use and cannot be used for commercial purposes such as in marketing ads.
