I decided to re-write one of my very first hubs on here because I'd made a mess of the optimization of the first one. Imagine my surprise when I nipped over to Amazon to see them using one of my photos on their product!
I'm not objecting - not at all - I often use Amazon's photos without permission. But this was a pretty average photograph of a kiwi plant taken with a cheap Nokia phone.
I feel quite famous now! (and no they didn't give me a link either!)
Thanks wrylilt, and no paradigm..if I send them a bill they might send me one in return, and I have hundreds of their piccies

oh and the photo is here if anyone is interesed.
Haha that's pretty cool I'd write them and see what they say haha
Chances are it is a seller on Amazon that is using your picture. Many of the items on there that look like they come right from the Amazon warehouse is actually the many sellers on there.
So chances are it was a person who did a search for that item, copied it and is using it to sell on Amazon.
It is a seller, and I suggest you contact them. Chances are they have a blog or website somewhere, you could ask them for a backlink in exchange for the use of your photo.
There's a link on this page to contact them direct.

I'm hesitant to contact them in case they just drop the photo. I'm really quite happy for them to use it - in fact I was tickled pink when I came across it!
I agree with Marissa. It's easier for them to give you credit and a backlink than to find another photo. Since that much is helpful to you, just ask gracefully and enjoy the result.
That's interesting. Where was your photo posted for them to find? Just curious.
Thanks for putting it that way Marisa and Howard. I'll think about writing to them and let you know what happens

Bugs the stuffins outta me. You hear ,"Okay...I'll call you tomorrow." Tomorrow comes, no call. You think, duh? So what's the deal? Then there's the ever-ending "I'll contact you as soon as I can get away...." Then NO CONTACTO. Especially when somebody does it...

I got some Amazon sales for several items I don't think I'm selling on my hubs (phone accessories) from a "Third Party" seller. I'm happy dancing for the sales but I don't understand what "Third Party" seller means. Please enlighten. Thank you.
