  1. They have re-used a Sun newspaper article (with permission) the only difference is that I have full name credit for images they have used, not just Alamy. If it's a genuine site what would be the licence situation?
  2. Such a shame Bryan, it would be nice if you could re-consider your decision It's rather telling that more than one person today has thanked you for finding images which had not been reported to Alamy (do they not track anything?)
  3. 9 mainly newspaper use so only $ sales.
  4. I have all my images PU restricted so would I be right in thinking that this licence couldn't be offered for one of my pictures?
  5. Not always quickly. At the weekend the live feed can look like a disaster zone for hours.
  6. Shame about the low value for the BW image... but the BBC used some of my archive BW shots, which, like yours are unique... and only paid $ prices.
  7. https://blog.mickflynnimages.com/2017/05/banned-from-my-local-newspaper.html
  8. The very group who had a competition to see which local rag could get the most free content.
  9. I use the Lightroom Alamy plugin to publish straight from LR and can use the PC for other things whilst it's happening. I did use FTPo it's own before changing to this method and it's way quicker than the web upload.
  10. A quick look around and it's text content seems to be generated by AI, ie 10 best bars in (insert name here, then let the robots find the content) They also use a lot of Flickr CC images.
  11. No update here for me either (UK) and my Alamy LR plugin is showing a higher sales figure than my sales history on my dashboard, so there should be at least one more sale hiding somewhere.
  12. Strange marking someone down for a comment... so I gave a green to balance it. I was only searching that term (in general stock not live news) to see if the consensus was to remove the phrase after the image went into general stock and was surprised at the strange results, that's all. I've downloaded my metadata now and will probably be re-doing all my captions which have the credit at the end.
  13. A little strange that when I searched the term 'Alamy Live News' there were 9,840,329 hits (I was looking to see if many people didn't remove the phrase after loading live news pics). The results, certainly after page two were from only two contributors in an alternating fashion for page after page.
