  • 1. Change the default email it sends from?
    ★★★★ By: phillip deez - 2024-06-29
    App works great, however I can’t figure out how to make it default-send from my business email account, not my personal tied to my mobile device via App Store, please help! Otherwise it’s 5 out of 5!

  • 2. Pretty Slick
    ★★★★★ By: tamilisa - 2023-10-29
    This is a pretty slick app that has helped me a lot! Thanks!

  • 3. Replaced all my paper
    ★★★★★ By: Photoguyinmo - 2023-05-12
    Once I started to use this app I no longer had a need for paper releases. I can keep multiple versions of releases both property and model and customize them to fit my needs. In addition the back up to the cloud and email pdfs ensures that both the model and I have a copy.

  • 4. Works great!
    ★★★★★ By: iorellanaa - 2023-05-06
    Pretty easy to use and set up. Many photoshoot done using this app and always just the best results and clarity for the model and for us as a photograohers.

  • 5. Editorial property consent
    ★★★★★ By: иван шиленко - 2022-12-24
    Добавьте пожалуйста возможность делать релиз от Istock на editorial content Thnx!

  • 6. Recently I cannot send it via email
    ★★★★ By: fabbuii - 2022-04-29
    It used to work but now whe I choose the option to send it via email the sent button is greyed out. Any ideas???

  • 7. Solid App - Could use some Updating
    ★★★★ By: UserUserNumbers - 2022-04-22
    This is a feature-rich release app which offers tons of flexibility for working photographers and videographers. It could, however, use some stability improvements to work smoothly on the latest iOS builds - lack of updates, random crashes, failures to initialize, and intermittent hang-ups call into question the price tag on this software.

  • 8. Really great app for serious photographer
    ★★★★★ By: miro mvp - 2022-03-26
    Great application, if you are stock photographer or people photographer it was your app #1 Really good investment. And believe me, they are respond if You have a problem. Thank You for great product.

  • 9. Won’t email
    ★★★★ By: PleaseAdviseASAP - 2021-12-14
    I honestly LOVE this app! However, recently I cannot get it to sent releases via email. It’s extremely frustrating and causing extra time now to get my releases because I can’t download them to my phone from my Google drive either. Would love some advise if possible.

  • 10. Excellent model release
    ★★★★★ By: jodi jacobson - 2021-11-19
    I believe this is the only model release Gettyimages takes. I have been using it for years.

  • 11. Almost great, but one issue
    ★★★★ By: Cgephart - 2021-02-06
    I like the app. Best one I have tested. The only issue I see as a shortcoming, and a fairly significant one at that, is that it seems to require iOS Mail to send releases. I use a 3rd party Mail/calendar app (Spark) because, frankly, there are several that are much better than iOS Mail. Make it work with 3rd party email apps and it will be a fantastic product.

  • 12. Fast support. Had a big. Fixed quickly
    ★★★★★ By: Meximus808 - 2020-12-02
    I had a bug and wasn’t able to make releases. Support responded within 24 hrs. Now I’m back to using this great app.

  • 13. Great App!
    ★★★★★ By: Jebb - 2020-11-05
    This is a straight forward app that does what it says it does. It’s really nice to know that the built-in releases are accepted by Getty too! If I could add functionality it would be the following. 1. A copy feature or a way to say “make x number of this one” for times when I’m prepping for a shoot that has a lot of subjects, but not a lot of time. That way I could prepare a bunch of blank releases with the shoot name and shoot ID prior to the shoot. 2. QR code people could scan and then sign on their own device. 3. A web based version to get signatures on any computer or device.

  • 14. Easy Release -
    ★★★★★ By: mikeooooo345 - 2020-08-10
    I just started using this app but I am extremely impressed by it. Excellent and quick response from the support team. Would highly recommend this to any photographer seeking an online, easily available solution to getting model/property release from clients

  • 15. Can you email to GET a signature? (Instead of signing on phone?)
    ★★★★★ By: Tarasuetx - 2020-04-16
    I’m now taking photos that require social distancing. Even handing someone a stylus that’s been hand-sanitized isn’t safe during COVID-19. I’d like to be able to email the release to the model for them to sign and return via email. Is this possible? Updated: Thanks for your response. I couldn’t find contact info for support in the app. Is it the option for “Feedback”? I sent an email using that but wasn’t sure if it was the right place.

  • 16. Life saver
    ★★★★★ By: Dining Divas tv - 2020-03-18
    Was looking high and low for something this awesome for my tv show. I never take time to write reviews but this is worth one

  • 17. LOVE this ap
    ★★★★★ By: Nashville jammer - 2020-02-09
    This ap is everything I want it to be. It makes model releases so easy and organized. No more papers. It works great for me and I highly recommend it as a pro photographer.

  • 18. Does all the hard work for me
    ★★★★★ By: Nessa Nessa Ness - 2020-02-07
    Was recommended to me by other videographers. I don’t know what I would do without this app. It does all the hard work for me. I’m still fairly new to model and property releases and I love knowing that I’m covered for each shoot. So convenient, easy to use, it’s almost too good to be true. I suddenly lost the ability to email the releases my way. Contacted customer support and received a detailed response within 24 hours. Problem solved. Definitely recommend!!!

  • 19. Great app
    ★★★★ By: Mehdi Fx - 2020-01-14
    If we can archive previous documents or hide , it shod be better.

  • 20. Terrific app and great support
    ★★★★★ By: jakopz - 2020-01-12
    Easy and quick. Fabulous support as well. No brainer if you need model releases on the fly.
