    Just tonight, I found one of my photos from here posted on Pinterest. The link took me to a blog with my food photo front and center! The recipe name had even been changed from the original on here. Of course, no credit given to me or the original recipe poster. GGGRrrrrrrr!

    I wrote the blogger an email and in the nicest way I could, I asked for credit for the photo. Such thievery and dishonesty to let others assume she took that photo!

    I'll let you know what her reply is...

    Wow, I'm sorry, I never saw this post.

    DuChick, this is exactly what we are trying to fight. Good on you for writing the e-mail -- did you ever receive an answer??

    That is why we now think (against what said in the past) that it is best to CLEARLY watermark your photos. It does not have to spoil your photo, but it should be readable. Use the copyright mark ©, then your name.

    Maybe use a colour which will not detract from your photo. If I remember (I do forget) I put © Zurie for on the bottom. Problem is: the thieves can easily cut it off, and maybe with Photoshop remove it.

    It's an ongoing battle. That blogger stole your photo, it's as simple as that. Copyright infringement.

    And now this Pinterest thing: As I understand it, anyone can "pin" a photo up there. I think it's blatant stealing unless permission is asked ... but they don't. I don't know how that works, but I really dislike that site.

    What I didn't understand was...orphinsit posted a comment which I now realize is fraught with idomatic syntax, and increasingly difficult to convey since it isn't quite "americanized" with regard to meaning or content. I think what was implied was that "pictures would makes one's mouth water." No other discussion needed. icon_redface.gif

    Okay, maybe "orphinsit" posted in the wrong thread to start with.

    But this is a global site, and many people are from other countries -- their home language is not English/Americanese. But they try to communicate, and are welcome.

    I myself am South African, and I WELL KNOW that I do not always express myself in the correct American idiom. English is not my home language. I am Afrikaans-speaking.

    So be tolerant -- usually it is easy to work out what the person wanted to say. icon_wink.gif

    I am also going to start watermarking my photos. I found several of my photos on pintrest. I really don't mind if they have the link back to, which then shows who's recipe is is and who took the photo. But, these blogs......many are done by amateurs who do not do their research. I found that they will "borrow" from other bloggers, list a recipe and the photo and then give the credit for both to the other blogger.

    I posted a comment on one blogger's post of my photo, saying that the original recipe and photo are from, not from the blogger she gave credit to. Annoying.

    Just realized that one (If not more) of my photos has been stolen for someone else's use!'s-wood-fired-grill/new-england-style-baked-stuffed-fish/3763099

    What can be done for photos that have already been posted (I've been a member since like 2000 and have over 222 photos on this website) - can they be deleted, watermarked and resubmitted?

    Not that it would help once it's already been stolen icon_sad.gif

    Carla very sorry to hear your photos were stolen icon_sad.gif

    To remove photos you will need to contact CUSTOMER SUPPORT FORUM

    I highly recommend both contacting the site that posted the stolen photos as we have found when the owner of the photo contacts the offending site more times than not they will remove the photo.

    Also recommend water marking will not stop a very determined thief but it will deter most.
