  1. Post your positive results here :)

    My largest sale by far has just landed and possibly saved my Nov/Dec. $875 and sold in the US is all the info I'll have until tomorrow. Keeping everything crossed that it sticks!
  2. Have you found any Alamy images December?

    The news item is dated, and timed too
  3. Live News sales immediate?

    Here is the answer I received from CR following my enquiry of my early September sale, which kind of answers your question: "Thanks for sending this over, we have looked and do have a relevant download for this usage. Some of our editorial customers report usages to us over a period of time, and live news usages can take longer to be reported than regular newspaper uses. If you don’t see the sale appear in your account within 4 months of the usage date (by 04/01/2018) then please let us know so we can chase this up for you"
  4. Only my second sale of the month, and a PU at that :-(
  5. Live News sales immediate?

    This is the one instance where it pays to do your own searching for fear of going unreported. I'm still waiting for some from September which I've found myself (also see the other thread for images from 2016!). I'm sure many people will have complained to Alamy over time but it would appear to be a continuing issue.
  6. These are Live News images though, which pay a very worthwhile amount
  7. Yes, you would think so. I've found some more from 4 September via a search on my image with the women crossing Westminster Bridge which I've not had reported. I won't find out until Monday whether this was a reported sale. https://www.thescottishsun.co.uk/news/1514204/uk-set-for-week-long-downpour-as-rain-and-wind-lashes-the-country-before-gales-smash-through-the-weekend/
  8. Sadly it happens. The papers seem to be be allowed to take what they want without going through any channels because of the urgency of their publications, then use an honesty box at some point in the future. Far from ideal
  9. CR agree and are adding it to my log for the end of the month. One that nearly got away.........
  10. I can find: Keith Morris G0K04D James Jagger N006Y9 Dorset Media Services G07950 Simon Dack News G0797N
  11. https://www.thesun.co.uk/archives/news/1155548/its-a-bank-holiday-washout-rain-and-cloud-blankets-most-of-the-uk-but-theres-a-heatwave-on-the-way/ I've just discovered an image of mine used among a page of Alamy Live News weather photographs from May 2016 which I've not had reported as a sale. I've emailed CR to look into my image, but thought I should bring this up for attention so other contributors can be made aware. Due to the lateness of the hour I don't have time to reverse search at this time.
  12. Do You Snap Christmas and the Holidays?

    This one was zoomed yesterday!
  13. Do You Snap Christmas and the Holidays?

    Indeed. The 'overnight' database update still hasn't happened on my Live News images from Saturday - as at 11:00 UK time
