not my image

Hi all, occasionally i go onto google and look at what images come up when i punch in my user name, i was a little disturbed to find my username attached to a photo that is not mine, its connected to ePHOTOzine and brings up my profile... i am concerned the real author might be concerned that i have claimed this image as my own, which i certainly have had nothing to do with it being attached to my profile...., it is a nice image though Smile but i cant understand how this image is attached to my profile ? has this happened to anyone else and how can it be rectified , 042.jpg

Have you ever hosted or taken part in one of the site challenges? Could be that.

It's google getting confused - when it indexes images, it remembers the page, so this image may have been on the "featured image" or something. I wouldn't worry at all.

I just did the same search and the image is thumbnail size, so I'm positive that's the reason. You can set your mind at ease. If you follow the link, the image does not show up, since the featured e2 photo has changed.
