Hi, I uploaded few news images this morning, and got asked by Daily Star on Twitter if  it is available via alamy. I confirmed and heard nothing back. Now,  I found that they used it on they website, crediting Alamy. Does it mean it was purchased? Any idea when I will now any details?

Yes. Keep an eye on your reported sales - it should be reported as a sale within three months. Perhaps sooner as it is a news image.

Yes. As Niels says it should be reported within 3 months but I've had a few that took much longer than that.  Make sure you keep screen shots as well as links to the articles. Then you can show and advise Alamy if it's not appeared as a sale within 3 months.

Good tip, thank you. Must be a nightmare to keep track of this for a professional news photographers.

My experience of LiveNews has been very positive with Alamy

 

I normally get a cutting email over a few days after the images are used and generally the end of the following month the sales appears on my account.

Maybe I should have added that virtually all my LiveNews license has been for the UK broadsheet newspapers.

 

Don't see anything exclusive ...
