Refund From Eighteen Months Ago


Recommended Posts

It seems not.  I just today had a refund for an image sold Sept 2016.  It had never been paid for so at least the money had not got to my account.  It was for a corporate package, internal and external use.  How does Alamy know they didn't use it?

This can spoil any day. Obviously you weren't paid at least - as must have been uncleared, or what (Alamy bad debt)?

 

I guess you have made the obvious searches to see whether it has been used. (Google Image Search, Tineye on Firefox, and Google Book searches).

It's video, alas.

Video is really difficult to search, the photo way of searching doesn’t work, you mainly have to hope for a credit on a movie which Google will find or have other contributors give you notice if they see something.

Sorry I failed to notice that. 

 

A few years ago it was possible to find frames in a Google Image search. I found paid uses of some of mine in this way (not from Alamy). But haven't been able to get satisfactory results recently, and requires that the clip is online.

Google book searches - there is a new one on me. Does it find images on the cover and inside?  Sounds useful.
