As it's the pleasure of every photographer to find his image used online. And as many of you would like to share us this finding here on DT & the social networks like facebook, I came up with an idea that could gather all these images in one place, to be a reference for everyone (Buyers & photographers).


WhereAboutPhotos.com is my early stage project that I was able to finish today...
It contains two sections:

1- Buyer section: Where buyers can find tips & useful information about Microstocks prices & which are the best offers in the market comparing an apple with an apple!

I'm happy to say that DT is the best place for big buyers where the quality matches the best prices!

Why the buyer tips & photographers are on the same site?
With no buyer no sales my friends, let WhereAboutPhotos.com be a place for all microstockers...

2- Photographer section: Where WE can post our images linked to where the buyer had used it & with the possibility to be downloaded from DT...

How it works?
Simply join the WhereAboutPhotos.com page on facebook (click here) & then post me your link with the image ID on DT...
I don't have Facebook acount, what shall I do?
Post me here on this blog!

Please read more on the site & feel free to give me your feedback here or on the WAPhoto page on facebook!

Cheers everyone!

Hi Maen,

Here is another: http://www.pjonline.com/fileproxy/9116 for photo 10029129. Same photo also used: http://www.greenrightnow.com/kabc/2009/11/18/anna-lappes-green-apple-pie/. I like that they used my apple shot for an article on locally grown produce, when the apples were actually locally grown in a small town!

I like this idea, good luck my friend :))
Posted by Mani33 on August 23, 2010
Thanks Brad! Yes my referral link is already there! But it goes embedded when the page is open! ;)
Posted by Bradcalkins on August 23, 2010
Cool stuff! My only suggestion is that under an image you should have your referral link to buy it as well as see where it was used...
Posted by Maigi on August 23, 2010
Good luck with your site, Maen! Good job! :)
Posted by Starblue on August 23, 2010
Yes, indeed. It is a great web, nice to be there! :-) Thanks!

Dan1 it's very early to find your image with only 3 sales, but who knows! Good luck! :)
Posted by Dan1 on August 23, 2010
Great site. Haven't found where my 3 sales were used.
