Thank you for that explanation, although i contribute and have always loved art and photography my background is very different so not entirely sure of the workings of publishing etc. So just trying to understand it further. I can see how it can become a very tangled web, not knowing what's been used and where and by whom, tracebility etc. It's a lovely feature that i enjoy skirting through almost daily and enjoy seeing others getting sales. The commission comment was tongue in cheek ;)

 

 

There is something else to contributing here as well. You are in a sense looking at images as a client. After a while you may be able to understand what keywords clients use and what the competition looks like. And which images clients prefer and sometimes why.

While it is easiest to do a reverse lookup, it's more revealing to try and guess the way an picture editor/image researcher works.

Hint: for newspapers it's often just one keyword or a phrase copy/pasted from the article as they have very little time. If you have ever seen a picture editor at work, you'll know that the decision what to use or what to put on a shortlist is made in a split-second - seldom in seconds, let alone minutes.

Totally get that, i find myself spending hours a week observing what sells and the work here of other more experienced contributors, putting yourself in the editor/researchers chair is a good way of looking at things, it's interesting seeing some sales of images i'd never dream would be sold yet those who are more experienced maybe understand the nature/process of stock much better. Fascinating world this is.

Article about Tom Hanks with several film stills.  For most of the images used, there are too many of the same image, to know which contributors image was used. Below is the only one, that I could find only one copy for - from 'A Beautiful Day in The Neighborhood'

Yes, agree. Some magazines report sales of images before they are printed and others months afterwards. No clear pattern it seems.

My image on your link was reported today Sally.
