i posted this in sport talk, but feel it would get a more varied opion here...
i was at the local baseball field, kid of a friend playing.
i took pictures of all the kids (mostly boys, 1 girl) on both teams batting, ages 7-10.
no names but good shots of the faces, uniforms and numbers. action photos.
was thinking of posting to my flickr account, and letting the parents download the photos lower res. photo's for free, as screen savers and backgrounds.
offering to print higher res for modest cost.
but... do i have the right to do so? mostly because of the age.
the pictures were taken at a public park.
while i have the right to take the photos, do i really have the right to post them online?
moral question and really thinking hard about this.
if i was to password protect them with say the coachs name so only those who know could see them, would that be better?
perhaps overthinking this but in todays world...

Viktor,, to save any embarrassment or hassle,, have a chat with the league's organisers.

In all honesty, parents love photos of their little 'uns playing sport.

I would recommend that you don't include the team name or location either. Including on file and folder names. Password access would be great. Smugmug is set up for this, as I recall.


San Diego, CA

all the usual stuff :)

thanks, any parents want to chime in about how they would feel about a stranger posting pictures of their kid on a public site? would you feel better if password protected or would you still be uncomfortable with it?

I would say that if you have a way of making contact with the team parents, doing a group email and asking them for some permissions could save you some hassle: will they grant you the "permission" to post shots of their kid? OK. Otherwise, don't although then you might negotiate with them about sharing with them some low-res images of their kid, but at some point bear in mind that a tradeoff might suggest some financial renumeration!
