1st time that ever happened to me.. I'm doing a 365 project and I posted this picture last night on my facebook page and after I woke up someone has told me that my photo was stolen..

What should I do? I'm not really offended though.

It's a really horrible monstrosity of text they have added, but for as bad as it looks, that's the sort of thing I usually wouldn't worry about. They're never going to be a client, none of my clients will ever see it, and they're not going to profit from it in any way. It probably brings a smile to their face and doesn't affect me in any way.

But, that's just me. I'm sure they would take it down if you asked them to, most casual photo-grabbers do.

Pretty shot, by the way

This is exactly my take as well.

My personal thoughts are that I know that things I put up online might get used. That is why the resolution is 1000PX or less. Kids and family are password protected. If you want it at that resolution, go ahead and take it, I don't even watermark it. If you want it 24x36 or larger in a nice frame, you can buy it.

Right, you should be flattered! Now if that was my image (and its a nice picture by the way) and I saw it on a commercial site, as a banner or some other form I would probably be contacting the company for compensation, or take it down....

If you want total control over an image and want to prevent it from being stolen or used in ways you don't want to happen, don't put the image on Facebook or in an open online area where viewing the image is not controlled. Treating the image in that manner is the online equivalent of leaving a luxury car in a busy parking lot with the doors open, the windows rolled down, the key in the ignition and the motor running.

I basically stopped who can see my stuff on facebook anymore to just a handful of trusted people, unless its just a basic snapshot of my cat or some flowers which then become wall photos.

I have found a few college educated people who seem to think if they are in a photo, they can do whatever they please with it, including cropping out my watermark. I have tried to explain over and over that they can't just take and use stuff online to build a website, but I may as well talk to a tree stump, as they don't seem to understand any better then a tree stump would.


Your camera is alot smarter than the "M" Zealots would have you believe

message them and tell them that its great that they appreciate your work and kindly suggest in the future they ask for permission first (because im sure they wont enjoy it if you took a photo of theirs then defaced it.) if not, ask them to take down the photo. of course. change your privacy setting.
