I am relatively new here (had an account, but did not feed up till now) and I guess I made kind of a mistake with the assignment. I uploaded a photo, but also wanted to sell it on a site which sells directly to consumer. I kind of did not see the exclusivity marking at first.... (I konw, very stupid). I tried to search in the FAQ what exclusive for one image means, but did nog find my answer. So:
1. Is there a way to delete the image and then upload it as not exclusive? Or will there be a long waiting time? It has just been approved.
2. As it seems that I am still able to sell it directly to customers, can I hold on to the exclusive image and still sell it in my webshop space at the customer related site?
3. Does this mean I cannot sell any other pictures of Seville at night at other sites, or am I still able to upload different images of Seville elswhere...
Thank you for your help in advance :-) May be there was an existing thread already and I just did not find that... in that case I am sorry to bring it up again.
Thnx Nikitu, is there a waiting time for it to get disabled? And can you provide me a link to the terms for exclusive images (not contributors, I found that one)? I am in doubt now as to wheather to disable it or not... Got kind of curious to experience as if it will get more downloads this way :-)
that was what I was searching for. Thank you so much. It seems that I can get out of exclusivity 12 months after the upload (because it is an assignment) and that I am able to upload non-exclusive images of Seville at night at other sites, just not from the same square at night. Seems fair to me.
I will use this one as a test case to see how much more downloads it generates being leveled up to 5 and exclusive. Perhaps I am going to benefit so much from it I will focus on assignments more. At least I learned a lot today about the terms and conditions!
