You don’t have to be a professional photographer to make your photos more sellable on EyeEm Market. One simple rule to know when it comes to selling is that editorial licenses don’t require model and property releases, but commercial licenses do. By leaving logos and brand names out of your images, you can instantly make your photos more likely to sell. Here are our best tips and tricks for making sure your photos can be sold with a commercial license.


You can remove visible logos or brands from your photos using retouching software. Common examples are hardware and software designs, clothing brands and company logos.
