How it's possible to download a photo without sale?

Recommended Posts

I found that one of my photo on the Internet (actually it's a collage made from my photo) but I don't see it on my dashboard. When I asked Alalmy about it they replied to my


The image was downloaded on the 5th July 2021. You won’t see downloads on your dashboard, you will only see a sale once it’s been reported to us, which can take up to 3 months from the date of use. 

So my question is - how it's possible?

Here is a page that contains my image (look at the left bottom corner below the image) https://www.thedailybeast.com/from-the-louvre-to-the-met-should-we-break-up-major-museums

Lots of regular customers have accounts which let them report up to three months after the file is used.

Keep and eye on this and chase them up if it hasn't been reported by the end of September.

Note that it probably won't be actually paid for some time after it's reported.


BTW: Congratulations to have made a sale with only 11 images!  I think the Beast has a good discount, so be aware that you won't actually see the money until your share of all sales add up to $50.
