    The only real way of doing this is by searching on the actual websites themselves. For example, go to The Sun website, in the search bar type "weather" it will bring up all the pages with weather related images, go through them all Say for example you submit a weather image from Brighton, East Sussex, uk do the same, first search for brighton and see if you spot any of yours, do a search for sussex as well, The Sun like to change it around to keep you guessing Rinse and repeat with the The Scottish Sun, but only if they publish a different article to the normal Sun, The Times, daily mail, express, etc, etc all of them have search engine facilities. Once you have found all of your images dating back to when you first started submitting live news, then its just a case of looking as soon as you submit and taking a screen grab and URL. Don't be surprised to find that your image has been used a half dozen times but you can only find the one article! Images get dropped all the time. Good luck

    Just a thought, you could try meteor showers, I have a few live news images that pop up in a search once in a while (never sold any though)

    adding 3 0's where it says Images: 23 or 2 0's if you start captioning your images correctly!
  9. How long for payments to clear?

    Again note that down in your spreadsheet, The Sun usually report and pay after 12 weeks (6 week split), if they haven't after the 12 weeks let alamy know. I copy and paste the info from the sales report in AIM so they know exactly what image you are talking about, they will then look into it and probably include it in the next pay run.
  10. How long for payments to clear?

    One thing I do know after submitting over a 1000 live news images since October is that tracking usages is part of the deal of doing live news, unless you don't want to get paid for all of your hard work!
  11. How long for payments to clear?

    Say they download it once and then use it repeatedly in several articles over the coming days, how does Alamy track this?
  12. How long for payments to clear?

    No, but some do get missed, make a note on your spreadsheet for 4 months after the date you took it, if it hasn't been reported drop Corin or Shelley an email
  13. Royal Wedding - worth the hassle?

    exactly what I'll be doing
  14. If an image is zoomed in geogphoto and you transfer it to geogphotos, the image will still retain it's geogphoto pseudo zoom tag
  15. if subscription service was introduced...

    A friend of mine does promotional videos, he was asked by a company to supply a video for commercial purposes, he was told that the company had an account with a certain video library and he could use as many clips as he wanted. The cost per year for as many video clip downloads as he wanted? $150 Your figures are pie in the sky I'm afraid!
