How long between Usage and Sale? in Stock photography discussion and contributor experience Posted July 3, 2017 9 hours ago, Kneon Light said: Hi Fairly new here so wanted to ask a question - how long is there usually between usage of a photo and it being recorded as a sale? I had a zoom on Friday and then found my photo had been used by the Guardian online - however there is nothing to indicate a sale. Is this usual? Many Thanks I had one which appeared on May 26 and sale recorded June 30.
