  2. If you have a photo looking up at a ceiling in a famous building around the world then it might be worth going into a bookshop and having a look at this book https://www.amazon.co.uk/Art-Looking-Up-Catherine-McCormack/dp/0711242178 At least one Alamy photo by Rob Whitworth
  3. I haven’t had any of those uses reported for my image, so I’m surprised yours has been. Only a few days to go until I can chase them up, though.
  4. Yes, Live News images can be chased with Alamy after 4 months is up. Usually The times is good at reporting uses the following month.
  5. It's always worth keeping an eye on the Scottish Sun (and presumably other versions of The Sun) for repeated use of Live News images, though I have to say I only found this by using Copytrack. A use several months after Live News upload. https://www.thescottishsun.co.uk/tvandshowbiz/4801820/im-celeb-itv-stv-rangers-ally-mccoist-lorraine-kelly/
  6. Not sure this is legit. I think its a lifted use of this in the Cairns Post https://www.cairnspost.com.au/technology/uk-tipped-for-more-hotter-days-as-global-emissions-rise/news-story/c545e0a7c7ec6433b4854654aebfb73d Im not sure if this is also a lifted use https://www.news.com.au/technology/environment/climate-change/uk-tipped-for-more-hotter-days-as-global-emissions-rise/news-story/c545e0a7c7ec6433b4854654aebfb73d I will be contacting Alamy when the 4 months is up, which it will be soon.
  7. Just exceeded my 2018 revenue, but usual story, it's taken 177 images compared to 129 last year. Means I'm selling more......but
  8. Indeed, though it’s always nice to ‘break into’ a new publication. I just noticed that the license is for 50 years! Though only within one issue.
  9. A lowish $$ sale reported this morning for this one which i found recently in The New Yorker.
  10. Brilliant. Just found a photo I took in Liverpool in a credited book use published on May 31st this year. Also one there by Ken Biggs of Albert Dock. https://books.google.co.uk/books/about/Liverpool_Beyond_the_Brink.html?id=x8SbDwAAQBAJ&printsec=frontcover&source=kp_read_button&redir_esc=y
  11. Ok, no I didn’t know about that but looks useful and I will investigate. Thanks!
  12. You need to get access to the press diary somehow......there may be other agencies who you can contribute to who get it.
  13. I do use Alamy Lightroom plugin if that’s what you mean. As for legal versus illegal, it depends if I have licensed an image (easier for me since I only license via Alamy). If I have, I check with Alamy whether it is for that use, or they have a ‘relevant download’ or it is a repeated use, and if not let Copytrack chase it. i should say that there are a lot of the dud websites that exist simply to copy images or ‘wallpaper’ sites that are unchaseable because there is no way of contacting the owner. Nevertheless, still some uses to be found that are worth going after. (i should also add that it was Rich Dyson who pointed me in this direction.)
  14. I generally upload a 1,500 kB version. It’s all free and you can request an increase if you need to upload more images.
  15. I upload low res versions of all of my news images, sold images and zoomed images to Copytrack. It has found uses that I would have never known about - some of which Alamy can chase (usually one particular newspaper) and others which Copytrack can chase (they take 30%). I have had one pay out so far from them and a few more in the process.
  16. Can’t see a thread for this so I’ll kick it off. I just found a sale for 1st November for $37 for this one. A good start to the month.
  17. Stumbled across a use of my own image in the New Yorker on October 17th (a first for me) of an author appearing at the Edinburgh International Book Festival. Interestingly they converted it into black and white. https://www.newyorker.com/books/page-turner/motherhood-meets-lust-and-violence-in-ariana-harwiczs-die-my-love
  18. I am averaging around 60 zooms per month. Arguably it ought to be more for a portfolio of over 15,000. I have gradually been tightening up on my keywords and deleting poorer images. Still a way to go, though...
  19. 24 sales for $467. Lots of tiddler newspaper sales. Biggest payment ever due though for $1067, so that’s good news.
  20. Lovely. You should have told us you were coming; we could have had an Alamy meet up. Looks like you had some rather dreich weather.
  21. A friend and fungi buff has also suggested that the first are Lepiota so that will do. He says the second image looks like The Clouded Agaric, Clitocybe nebularis.
  22. Thanks both, not easy to identify these, but I will do some more research.
  23. Cheers Brian. I would never have known about this otherwise as I can’t see it online without a subscription. A rare plant use for me. I look forward to 50% of $4.78
  24. Newspaper use $$. I get quite a lot of searches for Colchagua Valley. Great when you can sell a photo of something you indulged in.
