FAQ for seller / provider of images
OFFERING / PROVIDING IMAGES

Is there a charge for being a seller/provider of images?
No, there is no charge for offering images at STOCKSTAGE. We want to earn money with you as a partner. The profit will be shared to 50% each. Your personal access and our service are absolutely free of charge for you.

Jump top
How can I sign up for offering images?
We are in constant search for talented photographers, illustrators and 3D artists. For you to become a provider for images with us, STOCKSTAGE would like to perform an assessment on 10 of your images. Therefore, please send 10 of your best images (jpg format, low resolution e. g. 1024 x 768 px) as attachment to info@stockstage.de.

In case your images fulfill our requirements / fit our concept, we will set up an access to the system for you and send the log-in data by email. With this access data (log-in) you can handle your images.

Please see our Guidelines for Images before you sign up.

STOCKSTAGE is distributing all images on a “non-exclusive” basis. Therefore you are free to offer your images with other agencies or on your own website, we have no intention of confining you.

Jump top
Living abroad, may I provide images as well?
Of course, you may.

Jump top
May I offer images being not my own?
A clear „NO“ – you have to be the originator.

Jump top
Could my images be removed from the website?
You may decide to remove or erase images from the website yourself. We reserve the right to remove/erase single images from the website (gallery). We may decide to remove an image from the system that had not been sold in a long time.

You will find detailed information here: Customer License Agreement

GUIDELINES FOR PICTURES / IMAGES

May I upload any image I like?
You are allowed to upload images meeting our guidelines. For more details please read the following sections.

Jump top
What is the minimum resolution for images?
STOCKSTAGE offers images within a range of 4 to 20 megapixel, at times even higher. Therefore your images should have at least 4 megapixel. Please consider this resolution rather as being the exception than the rule. We encourage you to strive for 8 to 10 Megapixel being your standard (size). Please note: your profit is related to the size of your sold image size and many customers look for very large images for printing broadsheets, for which more than 4 megapixel are required.

Jump top
Which format do I have to upload?
We only accept images in jpg format with a quality of 85 to 100%.

Jump top
What are the conditions for uploaded images?

Basic requirement
Picture format: jpg, quality: 85 to 100%, resolution minimum: 4 megapixel (preferably 8 megapixel and higher), colour space RGB/sRGB, no technical defects, no pornographic or right-wing extremist contents and no rights violation (e. g. at model release)

The STOCKSTAGE Team does mind quality to a great extent. Besides the theme and the perspective the picture must not show technical defects like artefacts, strong noise, eroded highlights, overexposure, underexposure, etc.. The contrast range has to fit like the image section, the choice of the theme, and the illumination etc.

What we look forward to
We look forward to meaningful images of people from all areas, good architectural images, pictures from the technic and science section, interesting object images, and creative illustrations and 3D visualizations or picture compositions too.

These images we do not need any further
Following images are not needed any further: wood, meadows, flowers, sky and clouds. Usual images of nature or holiday travelling are of no interest for us, and so are many different pictures of your pets. We value quality instead of quantity. Anyway, if you regard some of your pictures from the mentioned sections to be of extraordinary beauty, we would like to see them nevertheless. If you have specialized in taking images of nature which set themselves apart from the main stream, we will be happy to add those to our database.

Please note
Interesting images are sold, the customer/buyer is happy and so are you and the STOCKSTAGE Team. Nondescript images cause a lot of work for you and us. They do not sell and disappear in the database.

Jump top
Are graphics / illustrations and 3D renderings accepted?
Yes – we all in constant search for talented illustrators and 3D artists. We look forward to see your works.

Jump top
How can I submit a vector graphic?
As of now we cannot process eps files in the system. Therefore we ask you to export your eps data into a graphic file of at least 8 megapixel and save it as jpg in a quality of 85 to 100%.

Jump top
Do I have to upload images of different size(s)?
No, you do not have to. Submit your pictures within the range of 4 to 20 megapixel. The system automatically generates all smaller sizes.

Jump top
Could I withdraw submitted images?
Your personal STOCKSTAGE log-in enables you to upload, erase or edit your images afterwards.

MODEL RELEASE

How do I apply for a model approval?
For images needing an approval the checkbox “Model Approval” has to be marked when editing the image data being logged-in at STOCKSTAGE. As image provider it is your own responsibility to archive/file all model approvals to your images and send these upon our direct request only.

Jump top
Is a model approval needed for any upload?
A model approval is necessary if persons are shown in the image, thus making a release declaration necessary. A model release is necessary if persons are clearly recognizeable in the image, and if there are 4 or less persons are in the same image. Generally many images would need a release declaration, but in reality this is rarely causing problems, e. g. if you photograph private persons far abroad.

A model release is needed, if you take pictures of private places or for instance legally protected sights abroad. The respective owner is free to decide if pictures may be taken or not.

Jump top
Where do I get an approval form?

Does STOCKSTAGE accept nude photographs?
We do not accept pornographic images, but we include tasteful images of nude persons in our database. Any nude image with characteristic attributes like a face, a scar or tattoo requires a model release. The model has to be 21 years or older.

Jump top


PAYMENT

How much will I get as image provider?
