File Numbers

Recommended Posts

Is there any way I  can find my original file number information on alamy in Alamy Image manager?  This used to be possible before the last set of changes to to image manager but I can't see it now.  Help anyone ?

It's below the image but sometimes obscured if it's too long.  Click on the magnify symbol and it should be visible.

Thanks john.  I have just checked with a recently uploaded image of mine and you are right, my file number is visible but on a particular image that I am trying to get my original file number of it shows the caption in the place where newer images have my own file number.  Perhaps I uploaded them without a file number but I am not sure that is possible.

There is a difference between what you see when you search in the AIM as against what you see when simply browsing. When  you search, you need to click on the little zoom button at the top left of the thumbnail and the original file name as well as the Alamy image number will be visible at the bottom of the zoomed image.

Thank you MDM I have just done that and found the file number.  Thats really helpful.   I need the original file number to chase an infringer ( privately not via alamy ) and its a lot quicker for me to find the numbers via alamy than going through 5,000 photos every time on several hard drives I need an original file number.
