Will be working on a shoot for TFCD soon. I have created a model release form but after further reading some threads here about release forms I have to rewrite my form.

The model and I have agreed that I will provide her with a CD with images of the shoot.

When I provide the CD what is the rule of thumb or ethical size for providing the jpg. Do I provide the full size jpg the camera produces or do I crop down to a smaller size? This will be for portfolio use.

Also, for web use, is there another size I have to provide for her to upload to model mayhem or facebook? Should I put my logo on the pictures used for web? I have seen some of her photos online with no logos from other photogs.

I read threads that photog's place their logos (i'm thinking this is the watermark i've seen on some threads) on all photos, on a few photos and not at all. Is this a good idea? Does it make it look tacky besides giving me exposure?

Reason why I ask is because I am in a photography group and we do photo group shoots of a few models. Previously I have provided the full jpg size and no logo of mine. But after doing much reading now I'm wondering if I was wrong in providing full size jpg. Is there a procedure to follow. This shoot will be the first without the group.

Ask what the model needs.

For each photo I deliver for TFCD, I give one copy that's Facebook resolution (720px on long edge) with my watermark, and one copy that's 2400x3000 (suitable for printing an 8x10 at 300ppi) without any watermark. If the model intends to print larger than that for their hard portfolio, I'll happily provide a file that's the appropriate resolution for whatever print size they use in their port.

If the model specifically requested that I NOT put my watermark on their Facebook-sized image, I would probably oblige. I haven't had that happen yet; so far my models are satisfied to let me have the exposure on their social network, as long as the prints are clean.

Thanks for the input.

In order to provide a photo without a exif is it best to open in photoshop crop down lets say to the 2400 x 3000 (for sample purposes) and save as jpg. Will this eliminate the exif? Is this something that should be eliminated from the photo?

I don't know how to do it in Photoshop, but I think in Lightroom you check the box that says "Minimize metadata" or something along those lines. I'd wager that there are some other external programs that can strip exif from existing jpgs, too.

Out of curiosity, why would you want to strip the exif? In addition to the other info, you can put the your copyright info in the metadata. Even if you give the files to the model to use in their portfolio, you still retain the copyright.

Are the sizes of the photos received should be included in the release form or as long as I tell her verbally is that ok?
