How i can search where are published the photos selled? Any recomandation is welcome, 

 

I've got a subscription to Readly which allows searching for credit lines (i.e. text) within some (maybe all?) of the magazines it covers. I tried looking for CFimages, but it gave no hits. Do you have any other Pseudos you'd like me to search there for?

Lots of images by CFimages come up for a search like this on Google Images.

I tried that with my pseudo, but all I get is a lot of my images but I thought the whole point was to find usages. Every once in awhile, I get an alert via email from Talkwalker (I’m not subscribed to it) about a usage, usually unreported through Alamy. Then I report it to Alamy.

As usual, wim, I’m probably misunderstanding how you use Google Alerts.

CF27, it's worth pointing out that google searches of this type may flag an image which is on the same page as yours but not show your actual image. You therefore  have to go all the way through that page to clarify if your image has been found.

 

Another thought is to ask alamy. I't not their policy to release names of buyers but if you say the picture was of your daughter they may help. Always worth asking.

I see usages doing a Google Images search for Betty LaRue or for A Larue. Or Bets Larue (guessing that's you also).

As mr Standfast says: it does help to click on an image and scroll down. Even if it's not always a hit. In such case I also do a search for my name on the page to see if that term is mentioned somewhere in the text. Most of our images will probably appear on pages that are changing constantly, so it's also possible that there has been an image credited with our name when Google last looked. Then there's the possibility that it's in the text we cannot readily see, but Google can: the page source.

The long part of the search that looks like -site:alamy.com -site:alamy.es -site:alamy.de is to exclude our images on those sites. That what the minus -site: is for. Otherwise we would only get all our images on Alamy with maybe one or two usages unless we are platinum sellers with a very small port. In your case you could add -site:pixels.com -site:fineartamerica.com because you are selling images there. If I see my images coming up from some foreign Alamy site, or from a distributor, I add those too. And it probably helps to use your pseudo as precise as possible and to use quotation marks. "Bets Larue" gets me to https://www.yumpu.com/de/document/read/60069486/aha-neu-podrecznik-klasa-8

Your image is on page 34 I think is what the photo index says. Unfortunately that page is not included in this preview.

"A Larue" gets me a trumpet vine in the Guardian of March 24 this year.

You do have to play with it a bit. Also you always have to click on the See more anyway and Show more results links if they appear at the bottom of the page. Some of my best finds are from the last rows.

The Alerts work the same. Long ago I found a very good help page on Google somewhere but I cannot locate it anymore. However Google says there are 293.000.000 results when I search for excluding sites in a google alert. I see about 200 if I count them. Maybe their 25th birthday party is getting out of hand. But there are some good instructions among the top results.

It sometimes helps to exclude certain words as well. In your case I would exclude "Rachel". In my case I had an alert for my wife's surname which is Reiling. And at one point the alert started flooding my mailbox with endless blogposts by a Chinese girl Rei Ling. Now when I excluded "Rei Ling" I got no results anymore at all. Google had become too smart, thinking I probably just mistyped. But because the girl also used a western name as an alias, I excluded that one: problem solved.

Make sure you set the alert to all languages, not just English.

try something like 

 

"Betty LaRue" alamy -alamy.com -pixels.com -fineartamerica.com

 

use "-" to  eliminate websites and words you don't want to show up in results. in addition to the webpage results, click on the Image tab, News tab, and Books tab for more succinct results.

 

i personally add -theculturetrip.com as i see a lot of usage on that site and don't want to be reminded of it.

 

on google.com/alerts  just add your name in quotes, maybe even "alamy" and select any region, all languages, all results

try

"allanbellimages" -alamy.com alamy

 

then click on images tab, and news tab.

 

I usually wait for the sale to be reported unless I have free time. The news tab works best for me, just found recent pics in the Guardian and Times. Due to the Times paywall it only shows for a moment. Theoretically they should be reported next month.

for the times uk website paywall, you can view an archived copy of the article by inserting "archive.is" into the url.

 

e.g., the url you want to view https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/how-england-s-rugby-heroes-ended-up-behind-bars-n6w3p9sks

 

change it to https://archive.is/www.thetimes.co.uk/article/how-england-s-rugby-heroes-ended-up-behind-bars-n6w3p9sks

 

it will archive that page and make it viewable w/o paywall.  there's also a input box on the http://archive.is page where you can simply enter the url you want.
