...no idea exactly where it appeared though!

 

try putting this into google:

 

"chris partridge alamy" -alamy.com -shutterstock.com -picfair.com -flickr.com

 

of course, that only works for images published. I've sold a fair few that I suspect never made it to the web.

Thank you for this advice. I found an unauthorised use in May this year which I have reported. The same web page had several photos from Alamy contributors.

If its only recently been used then Alamy suggest waiting for 3 months before contacting them . . . . .

Q. I’ve seen my photo being used but it hasn’t been reported as a sale?
A. The time it takes for our customers to report image uses varies depending on what industry they’re in. This can mean they don’t tell us they’ve used an image until the end of a month, quarter or publishing cycle. If you’ve seen an image being used, and it hasn’t appeared in your sales history within 3 months, then please let us know by filling in our unauthorised use form which you’ll find on your contributor dashboard and we’ll follow it up.
