I work for a magazine. If i dwnload an image from istock and use it for that magazine...do I have to put the copyrights holder name in the staff of the magazine as a photographer?
Can I put my name instead?
I mean, just under the photo;
Photo; My name
Can I do that?

a - no, you do not have to credit the photographer, but it is nice to do.
b - Why would you take credit for the image? If you're going to give a credit, credit the person who took it, not yourself.

Did you take the photo??? If no.. then you can not claim it as your own by putting your name on it.
The photographers here are not the staff of your magazine... and do not belong on the staff page.
I would think just putting the actual photographers name (which is listed on every page of a photo... under copyright holder) under the photo would be a nice touch... but not needed.

If you want to designate a photo credit then it should be to the photographer who owns the copyright to the image.
I have no idea why you would be crediting yourself with the image if you don't hold the copyright to it. If you download an image from istock you are only licensing the right to use it and that does not grant you the transfer of rights as the copyright holder.

Just to make it crystal clear: You may not credit yourself as the photographer, if you didn't take the picture.

Thanks all. Is just as I thougt.
I wouldnt like to see any of my photographs with other photographer name on it.
I just wanted to know if I was selling/buying rights as copyright holder.
As "theprint" said...now is crystal clear
Thanks a lot
