Question

Does anyone know if it's possible to check through the dashboard if an individual image has been sold, at any time, by Alamy. I've one or two oldish pix appearing on websites and before chasing the user, it would be helpful to exclude Alamy as a scource.

 

Many thanks.

If you go to Sales History on the Dashboard, you can select 'Time Period'  = All. You can then scroll through all the sales you've ever made. I don't know of any other way to get the info you need.

Hi George

 

I had exactly the same problem and the way I checked was to:

click 'Download sales report' on the dashboard

date range in the 'net revenue sales report' - set the early date to some time before the date  you uploaded the image you're checking and the 'to' date to today, and alter the drop down menu to the right of this to 'date of invoice' and click 'go'

Once the page(s) have reloaded, click on the blue 'download' button

I'm on a mac, so this may vary, but then I get an option to open a  'statement' which I open

On my mac the statement opens in 'numbers' (like a spread sheet)

I click on the top of the column containing the heading 'Alamy image ID' and the drop down arrow gives me the option to 'sort ascending' which makes it easy to find an image by its ID

 

As you can probably tell by my descriptions I'm not very computer literate but hope that helps, and I would have thought if you're on windows it would all be pretty similar?

Best bet is:

Click on the Download Sales Report on your dashboard

Set the date range to whatever dates you want to cover.  It should be possible to cover all your image sales dating back to when you first joined Alamy.

Select Date of Invoice from the drop down

Leave all the reporting fields ticked

Click Go

Click download

 

You'll end with a CSV file that can be opened in any spreadsheet program.  From there it's easy to do a search (Ctrl=F for most Windows programs) or set up a filter.  I usually use the Alamy Image ID as my search parameter as it's easy to copy and paste from your image portfolio.

 

Hope this helps.

Thanks Kay and John for taking the time out to answer my query. 

 

So just in case anyone else has a similar problem - just follow their instructions. I set the date to 2007 - when I started with Alamy - then pasted  the downloaded CSV file into Google Sheets. From there it was easy to search on the code of the specific pics.

 

Oh that life was always so simple!
