  1. A request about reporting actual usage

    I agree more information would be helpful to us contributors. Right Managed images - what if an image of ours is licenced as in Geogphotos' example, and is actually used on the cover of a textbook in Canada for example. Another customer may come to us a year later, director or via another library, and also want that same image for their fiction book cover, but want to know the history of the picture before using it. They may not want to use it if it's already on the cover of another book in the same territory. We can't give them the information that they require to check previous usages. Unlikely scenario I know.

    and lean out the window as the train rounded the curve, and take photos ! unlike the trains of today, cooped up in uncomfortable airline style seating with no opening windows. Passenger taking a photo as the train traverses Ribblehead viaduct, North Yorkshire, UK. (not sold by the way )

    Congrats ! Now when the weather is really bad, with waves crashing over the sea wall and someone is out walking their little doggy, and you'd rather be at home in the warm shelter... go there again and make it in to an Alamy Live News pic !

    Despite going down on the moving escalator, the posters are sharp because you selected an appropriate shutter speed ! If you were moving downwards at 1 metre/second, that may have been fine to capture the posters sharply, with the shutter speed that you selected. If the man going up was also moving at 1 metre/second, then the relative speed is 2 metres/second, which may be too fast for the shutter speed chosen to 'freeze' time, so hence signs of movement in the man in your photograph. Morphy that brand still going ?

    They're often the successful pictures. Not the ones that come from some exotic trip faraway, but subjects closer to home, and generally mundane ! Hopefully the fee will help towards your shopping bill. Or maybe pay for a celebratory nice pint this afternoon in the local.

    Brill ! always feels good when a non-news new pic is newly licenced. I had the same recently..... the wet collodion plates were barely dry !

    Thanks for including mine. Good luck all. ps...I guess that the litter bin guitar man is playing trash metal !
  14. January

    11 for $382. Quite a few still unreported/refunded (when still used)/wrong licence details etc. to chase up. Time consuming to sort out. And annoying.
