  3. How was your August 2017?

    Sorry it's probably just my terminology but as spacecadet commented, they may still be there somewhere but are not being shown using Google reverse image search or Tineye. I've found, in my experience, google now only brings up very recent news articles and other older articles seem to quickly drop off the edge and are no longer found. Probably space and size of internet issues. For example I had six uses of one image in a newspaper over a period of a month which I found, not long after they had been used, by using the reverse image search, I printed and took screen shots but a week or two later they had disappeared if I tried the same search. After the allotted 3/4 months they hadn't appeared as sales and I contacted the Alamy team and they were duly invoiced and subsequently paid. However, had I not been checking, I would never have found them and been non the wiser! Both Alamy and I loosing out and the newspapers getting free images. I had well over 20 sales invoiced and paid after contacting Alamy last year and a lot fewer this year. Maybe my images are not being used as much, maybe I'm just not finding them quickly enough! I must stress this doesn't happen for everything some older articles in magazines and books are still there when I use the reverse image search but I often find that certain good selling images no longer show past uses and they previously did. Hope that makes a bit more sense! Apologies for the long reply - I don't wont to hijack this thread! And now there's no longer the private message service... enough said!
  4. How was your August 2017?

    Seven sales here for just over $340, including two TV sales >$100. My average number of sales is way down this year, almost a third, as are prices. I have licensed the same number as my total for 2013 for >$400 less. Also finding newspaper sales disappear quickly online making it harder to track down any infringements unless you are searching everyday!

  6. Cant login

    I've had terrible problems recently - really putting me off even opening Alamy at all! I've been so frustrated - just going round and round in circles - had to do 8 of these stupid Captcha things in a row before being locked out, had to then put in a new passwords and I can't open at all now on my iphone. I was so annoyed as I was unable to upload to live news images which I thought had a good chance of selling - ended up frustrated and stressed and the whole thing makes me question if it's worth trying to contribute when these obstacles are put in your way!

  13. Infringement payments.....?

    The same thing has happened to me on various occasions but not with such a large difference in price! I really don't understand it as it's both Alamy and us who loose out!
