APA has a new website in the final stages of development. A killer new feature of the new site is having our Member Portfolio Gallery powered by Behance (https://www.behance.net). Please follow the recommendations below to be ready to join APA’s Portfolio Gallery when our new website launches:
1. If you don’t already have a Behance account – sign-up, it’s free. If you already have a Behance account – relax and do nothing.
2. When our new site launches you will be emailed a link and code to instantly add your account and projects to APA’s creative network. It’s that simple.
We received a question from a member regarding APA’s association with Behance (Adobe) and we would like to acknowledge the concern regarding the terms and conditions for our members posting work on Behance.
APA teamed up with Behance so our members can be part of a large social imaging network and giving our members exposure to their clients that regularly use Behance. Behance is providing us with a powerful image engine to display member’s work in an exclusive gallery for APA members.
APA had an attorney vet their T’s and C’s and though they are not perfect, we believe they are acceptable.
As far as the creative commons license, when uploading images to Behance you have the choice of marking them as copyright protected or available through a creative commons license. We strongly suggest you mark all your images as copyright protected. It’s a very simple thing to do, you do not have to have your images available through a creative commons license ever. We will be recommending to all our members to turn off that feature.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have any concerns. We are very excited about this opportunity for members and we take the protection of copyright for photographers very seriously.
