You can post your own or others’ photos to share with our SOA members



Above is what it says on the SOA site, should this also include a copyright notice/warning ? Smile

Yes, same here.

Well, it's good to get a reply, and I'm satisfied with the action they took. Matter closed, as far as I'm concerned.

Mine was slightly different :


Quote:Dear Koen, you great photographer,

Thank you for contacting us pertaining to the theft of photos, in particular that incredibly beautiful one of yourself, that made all other stolen photos look rather pale-ish. But what can you do huh.

We have suspended the account of the offending site member and have removed all postings of the former member. And because he dared to steal one of you, great photographer, we kicked him around a bit just for the heck of it.

We do not anticipate any future incidents from this former member.

Again, thank you for informing us of this unfortunate issue. It was an honour to have a photo of a man of your calibre featuring on SOA, even though it was in stolen form. We should of course have recognized it immediately as yours and apologize for the error.

Thank you and Good Luck! Allthough, with your talent and expertise, I suppose luck has nothing to do with it.

One of the downsides of the web. If you use low resolution images they are less likely to be stolen as the quality is lower. If you use save for web this often removes metadata as well as compressing the image.
