    Oh dear, that sounds grim !....

    I don't think there is any easy way... probably have to go in through your profile to all the posts you've made and all the recipes you've added, then delete them one by one.. ?

    Can I ask why ?

    Hi Steve,

    I found five different websites today that were using my photos as their own. :-/

    You can only remove photos yourself if you uploaded them within the last week ~ You should ask your question, and the reason for removal, in the Customer Support forum ~ CUSTOMER SUPPORT FORUM ~

    Ah right, we've had this before, but removing your photos from here won't help, as they will still have them. What you need to do is contact the sites with proof (so still having yours on here and the dates etc will help) and make them take theirs down ! I'm sure there is a topic about it somewhere...

    found the topic (its sticky at the top)..

    Protecting your Photos

    http://www.food.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=369004

    as I said, unless you are never going to post a picture on the internet again, its more about stopping them taking them with watermarks and such...

    Hi Carla, so sorry your photos have been stolen icon_sad.gif

    Kerfuffle-Upon-Wincle is correct the only way to remove all your photos is through customer service.

    Steve is also correct in several members have contacted the offending host site and 95% of the time they will remove the photo. One or two of the web sites have even gone so far as to ban the person who stole the photo.

    We have found that most web site do not want stolen photos and respond best to the person who took the photo.

    Copy righting your photos does help slow them down but will not stop them.

    Been there, done that as removing the photos from food.com will not prevent other people using them as they have already been downloaded to the internet highway and can be found through search engines like Google too

    I have contacted NUMEROUS sites and while some can appear innocent ie they did not give the proper credit to the owner of the photo because perhaps (and am JUST saying perhaps...not looking for a discussion) perhaps they did not know who the owner was

    If the site does know and does not give you credit for your photos than there is always the ISP address to report, the network they use etc ie Wordpress and Is AMAZING how fast things spread on Facebook or Twitter

    Been there done that and always find the way to get the bees is with honey....American expression...

    while frustrating, it will do of little good or use to remove them from here. If it bothers you THAT much and it did me when I saw my photos being OWNED by someone else on their sites....

    I contacted them all and kept coming at them until finally the sites either closed down, acknowledged the rightful owner etc

    Nothing is sacred or preserved on the Internet and unless you want to start doing watermarking in all of your photos...
    YOU have the control and YOU have the choice of what YOU want to do!

    Hope this helps but you are not alone in this issue which is part of the internet laws where there is no privacy

    WHOO HOO!

    I simply put a pox on their website and they wither away. icon_eek.gif Not really. I only have one photo on Food.com, the rest are links to my Photobucket account. I was banned from a food website (No, they are not all as nice as here), but they kept displaying my photos. Since they were all in Photobucket, I went back to them and inserted a bright yellow watermark diagonally across each one saying "These images have been stolen by ******.com (inserted their domain name) and are being used without permission." Once they found them about a week later, they were able to shut off any links to my Photobucket accounts. It was a lot of work, but a HUGE amount of personal satisfaction. They were such toads... icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif

    I also have photos and recipes on other sites that they claim to be theirs and they aren't.

    I finally gave up; I have a sig recipe and pic which I created for a restaurant and I find it all over claiming to be theirs. Once on the internet, it is nearly impossible to keep it private.

    I'm so sorry, but it does happen.
