Hey MSG folks,

I found one of my pics within the business- see url

So cool to see how it was used...

I loved those too until I figured that the webmaster uploaded it at 1,600px 1,250px (click on the image) which will be indexed by Google and then your XS, S and M sales take a dive...

Write that webmaster and have them reduce the size to 800px width - they're in breach with the licensing terms!

That was one of the reasons why I posted my pic- I will contact them asap.

Thanks.

Good luck!

I have a hunch that this dude didn't buy the image.

I'd look for better "in uses".  That doesn't look like any kind of business site.

How do you find out where your picture has been used. I sold a couple of small images on Istock, would be cool to know where they have appeared.

Cheers,

I personally don't find finding mine in thumb size on thrown together crappy loking sites too flattering, I'd rather not even bookmarks those, tho I don't find that much uses being semi-new to this. I also wouldn't want to show my models how their faces are being used on some poor looking thing.

I search on my own name and iStockphoto ("forename surname" iStockphoto), and my username and iStockphoto (Sillyname iStockphoto).

The GoogleSearch thing found loads, often illegal uses.
Has anyone found a workaround for getting the GoogleSearch to work easily directly from recent versions of Firefox? Even though I've had several updates of FF (now 6.0.2), GoogleSearch still shows as 'not compatible'.
I just this minute (after typing the previous sentence) downloaded Chrome just for the 'right click' functionality on this, and it appears not to be working. (not offered as a 'right click' option).

Just drag and drop the picture (thumb) in the search field.

Hmmm? All that gets me is the file's 'home page' on iStock - Chrome, FF and IE.

Yeah, still all I get when I drag in an image thumbnail is the photo homepage in iStock.
In the Old Days, i.e. when Image Search came out, you just right-clicked on a thum in iStock (FF or Chrome) and you got loads of uses all over the web.

That's strange, you mean you get no hits for the potatoes? I get 5.
Rightclicking still works for me btw.

Edit: I just checked and there is an extention active: "Search by Image (by Google)", guess you have to install that first :)

Does that give more / different results than the image search?

Ha, yeah, I just worked that out and was going to post and you posted first. Should have remembered you had to download the extnesion, it didn't come with Chrome.
I'm one of these people who shouldn't be allowed near a computer.  ;D

IS forum moderators agree. (oh the low blows start now?)  ::)

But I should add the extension to Chrome and see if it's any different than the FF links that come up. Anyone want to save me the time?

I'm still laughing for one that's sold over 100 times on SS subs and this is what the drag and drop search comes up with. "No other sizes of this image found." It does get found on SS, but I keep wondering who's buying it and why?

I've just found one of my editorials on a web advertisement.
It's not the end of the world, and I guess it's unlikely I'd be sued, as the company apparently does business via the company on my editorial pic, but still, it's undoubtedly a commercial use.
Wonder what iStock will have to say? Actually, I'm really concerned about what they have to say, because although I think that particular usage isn't worrisome in itself, it is a clear breach of a serious rule.
Rules. Schmules. I've found many, many of my pics being used editorially without a credit, which is against the rules. I bet most downloaders don't even read the rules.

Oh, h*ll, I was going to uninstall Chrome and get on with some Real Stuff, but I just found another editorial pic on an album cover on iTunes. I'm presuming that couldn't possibly count as 'editorial'?

I found one of mine on a paperback book cover, no extended license, wrote and asked, apparently the ThinkStock license doesn't require that. Oh boy, I'm so proud to be on the cover of a training manual and I got a whole 25 cents.

As for Editorial, you did your part, the agency did theirs and the person who paid for the license is ultimately responsible for the final use. Micro agencies and sellers keep forgetting that. The way I see it, our licenses for Editorial are nothing more than a warning. With RF we are promising that it has a release. Two different things.

I should be able to put up a whole site, selling images as Editorial, every darn one of them and the buyer must determine if they are infringing or not. Not Me!  :D If someone comes to sue, we did our part. Done deal.

I've now been back and forward directly with Compliance Enforcement a couple of times about the commercial uses of the editorial files. Interesting cases, in that one of them is a very big company, therefore maybe a big buyer, so they might want to tread gently (MY speculation - don't get me wrong, the CE rep told me it was definitely a misuse). By coincidence, they're also using an editorial image from one of the very few iStockers I've met in person.
The other two are mysterious, because there are apparently no UK sales for the other two, and using GIS, I can't find any other use of the files on the internet. Plus there seems to be no web contact or email link for the company which has my image on the 'cover' of an album downloadable via iTunes anywhere on Google.
