  1. Google starts to display licensing information about content that appears in Google Images. When the mouse is pointed on the images appears the "Licensable" text. When image is clicked (ex. Alamy images) "Get this image on: Alamy | License details" is displayed. Stay safe, andre
  2. Article on bellingcat about reverse image search- https://www.bellingcat.com/resources/how-tos/2019/12/26/guide-to-using-reverse-image-search-for-investigations/ the article is not intended for stock photographers but it might be useful.
  3. I've been seeing a few of these search items come up in My Alamy over the last week but thought I'd ask now after another one popped up this morning: Taylor%20Wimpey%20homes%202017 Putting this into the main search box doesn't reveal anything, so how do the %s end up here? Cheers, Richard.
  4. ...but sadly, only 1 from my portfolio. My CTR has been reasonable the last few months, but is in freefall this month (July), so when I noticed some nice person had 'zoomed' one of my images, I looked at my Pseudo info and saw that someone had searched for 'Russia historical portrait', and zoomed 3404 of the 4003 images they viewed. Occasionally, I have seen up to perhaps about 50 zooms for a single search phrase, but never anything remotely near the 3404 in this instance. Unless this was a bot stealing our images for display on some dodgy website (unlikely? given that
  5. Hello fellows, I don't know if I'm missing something, but when browsing through the Alamy website, there is no indication about "exclusive images" (Only available on Alamy), either in stock or live news images, in general search or individual image description (visitors mode). I think it would be an interesting option, useful to highlight the images from "Exclusive collection of stock and live news" and facilitate whoever (potential customers) either searching or browsing through the Alamy website. Andre
  6. Obviously a DACS question: Just checking if contributors use a website to search for magazine ISBN numbers? I swear I found one last year but I didn't bookmark it - and this morning's visit to the library and the supermarket bookshelf hasn't yielded all that I need. Thanks. Richard.
  7. I have uploaded a group of images from a shoot where there are 3 basic subsets. I want to be able to search for "locomotive 6777", or "locomotive 365", or "locomotive 765" from within only this one submission set. Then I can keyword and annotate that subset of images. I don't want to search (in this particular usage) my whole portfolio. Please add the Search capability to the confines of 1 or more selected submission batches.
  8. I had a file searched and zoomed yesterday with specific keywords, and sold overnight. This file was timely (in August) and I assumed having not sold at the time, it would never sell. But now I notice that it was a distributor sale to a German newspaper. Do searches on distributor sites show up in our Alamy Customer Search Activity logs? I find it hard to believe it was searched by two different, unrelated, searchers on the same day, though it is theoretically possible. Also I have several pics of the subject, so it's even more of an unlikely coincidence that this one was zoome
  9. I have a strange problem when using Jim Keir's Alamy Lightroom bridge. I spend quite a lot of effort trying to get my metadata fully optimised (10 supertags/50 tags, and ensuring everything is filled in). The bars on each image shows full green. Not a problem. However, when I use the plugin to do a "Set Alamy Data" the discoverability bar on the left side image grid shows orange, but the discoverability bar on the right side image summary shows full green. It's only when I change the Primary or Secondary Category does it pop back to full green indicating it's optimised. Has anyone
  10. I really am intrigued with the Forum - photos found in June 2018 etc ... I find it a fascinating feed. Years ago I would deliver my roll of film to the picture desk hopefully negotiate a fee and then go buy the paper in the morning ! As a newbie to Forum is anyone kindly able to explain how photographers can search the internet for possible usage and any tips to mark ones photos when editing ? Really appreciated. Matt / PennPix
  11. I was just checking my placement in searches, and was pleased to see I was on page 1 (relevant) or 2 (creative) of a search simply for "Jerusalem". I was not pleased to see that the "| more" notation did not appear on my first image, although I have 119 other images for Jerusalem. Has anyone else noticed this? (Pardon me if it's been discussed before.) Bill
  12. Till the past week I have been able to search the contributor forum by inserting by surname in the search box above. This enabled me to find sales, comments etc. No longer it seems, unless I am doing something wrong?? Thank you for any help with this, in advance and thank you to all those continuing to list found usages. Kathy
  13. Hi All, How long do you have to wait for your images to appear in the alamy search after they are approved? My images were on sale on Sunday eve 10pm and today is Tuesday morning and they are still nowhere to be seen... Thank you Michael
  14. Anybody else notice that if you do a seach on a term, say 'horse', then click on the first image, then use the back button (on Windows), the search goes to the top of page 7, not back to page 1!! I've tried 5 different searches and they all do the same. Is it just me? John. I was accessing the Alamy page from another page found using Google. It seems to work correctly if you go through Alamy directly.
  15. Maybe I’m being paranoid. Even though my measures show update of 10/31, it appears to me that zooms are broken again. Not that it’s out of the question that I’ve not had any zooms for a week, but folks, that’s highly unusual for my port. A new set of images that passed and were readied by me yesterday morning before noon, around 10 a.m. or earlier USA time, are not yet searchable. They should be. That time is well before the deadline. I'm sure that many of you are recording zooms, but that doesn’t mean somewhere something is broken for some of us. WHY ME?? Betty
  16. Could someone explain why this file (mine) showed on a search for Just Eat? I know it has Eat in the caption and keywords, but I can't see 'just' anywhere. TIA
  17. Discovered an additional toggle box underneath RF today, giving buyers the option to include or exclude "editorial RF".
  18. Has anyone tried the Lightroom plug-in 'Excire' for searching/keywording? It searches your Lightroom catalogue for similar images based on image content as well as existing keywords. Watch the video - https://www.excire.com/ Reason I ask - I don't use Lightroom but I use IMatch for keywording and the developer of IMatch is thinking of developing a plug-in for IMatch. Some users on the IMatch forum seem to rate it highly - https://www.photools.com/community/index.php?topic=6708.0
  19. I'm a relatively new user without any sales at the moment. I recently did a search for some of my images using a variety of the tags and supertags (all other fields are filled too) and failed to find my photographs. If I can't find them I can't expect anyone else too. Why are they not discoverable at all?
  20. Hi! When looking at view grid of my images I have noticed twice lately that an image of mine would get a view for a search term that I cannot recognize, meaning that the image does not have that as a keyword. The latest offender is the word "backpulver". I have never used that keyword, yet I have an image collecting a view for it. Moreover, when I go check out the entire Alamy and punch in "backpulver", none of my images show up. The other occurrence was my images getting a view for a non-English search term. Needless to say, all of my keywords are in English. Has anyone else seen th
  21. Just noticed, I have been out all day - there seems to have been another shake up of the search results. One of my test searches has moved my first image from half way down page 1 (and other people's) to page 16 pf 63! Some of my other test search results seem much the same or have even improved my positioning. Anybody else?
  22. Previously we could vary the images per page on searches. My preference was for 120. I cannot find this feature in the new search function and the default appears to be 100. Am I missing something? dov
  23. I did a search on IM for Toronto. Randomly clicked on an image of a sign for the Air Canada Centre. I noticed I didn't have Toronto in the keywords. Wondered if it was leaving out keywords so went to the image in Alamy database. Didn't have Toronto in either keywords or caption. A search in the database with Toronto does not bring up my image, but it does in IM. So it looks like IM also searches location as well as caption and keywords. If I search my Alamy Homepage it says I have 753 images with Toronto. In IM I have 815. I wish there was a way to know which ones were only in lo
  24. Here is something that I consider very powerful about the Alamy search engine. As you can see this page answers the client’s request, “I like this image, but show me the rest of the shoot” It is a very powerful sales tool. I keeps the rest of the shoot from becoming lost to the client. It shows your vertical and also your horizontal. And it shows your images Here is the page http://www.alamy.com/stock-photo-deciduous-trees-forming-a-windbreak-and-farm-fence-in-winter-snow-129431313.html
  25. Has anyone done a study on the relationship between image position in the search, and the price paid for the image? It would seem logical that a client looking for one $10 image would only look at 1 or 2 pages of images. It would not be worth the time to wade through 30 pages of images for an unimportant usage. However a client looking for a $500 image, for an important usage, should be willing to look much further. Even if their final selection turned out to be on the first page. This would mean that Alamy’s advice, to only keyword well, could work for the photographer. Work for the ph
