Hi Team, why do you not explain how this has happened for all to read and not in a PM,, I am sure others who post photos will have concerns.

Apologies, I'm not sure what you mean?

 

"How this has happened" - I think anyone who uses the internet already knows how this happens. I don't think it's appropriate to explain how it's done.

 

What the Team are doing about it, including names isn't really suitable for a public thread so the details were sent by PM.

 

If there is anything you specifically need to know, please feel free to drop us a PM.

 I'd watermark my photos if it was straightforward enough then there's no doubt your photo have been copied without your say so.

 

EDIT by harry m.

Removed the part of how it's done.

Photos......"ATFOFTF" forum or any other web site people will take your photos even if you put copy rites on the photos they can remove your watermark if your clever enough...

 

I have to say "ATFOTF" forum have taken this on board but its out of there powers!!!

 

If you post your photos on any web site you risk people taking them they should ask you first But sadley some people don't.....

 

Take care with your photos if you don't people will have your photos sorry don't put them on any forum!!!

This is and age old problem. If you post photos someone is going to use them. I gave up worrying about it life is to short.

 

If you take a special photo then do not post.

We are slightly luckier than other sites in that we are members only. Guests cannot view photos let alone steal them. However that also means it was "one of us" members that took it. When we identify the member, his membership will be terminated as it quite clearly states in the forum rules!

If you post photos ANYWHERE on the Internet, not just on ATFOTF.

I will just have to be more careful what i post in future, as i said some showmen sometimes don't want them on Facebook, and i know its a hobby after all but at the end of the day i spend alot of time and money getting to some of the fairs, so for someone to rip the photo, making out its theirs is not nice, if they had credit me as the photographer it would have been a bit better!

Thanks for the reply Team much appreciated, I didn’t realise it was such a large scale problem, obviously watermarking through the centre of the image is one solution.

You could get onto the fb group/page moderator and ask for it to be taken off there.

 

I don't use fb or I'd get onto them myself

It isn't a large scale problem. As a members only forum we rarely see our content stolen and we always deal with it robustly should it happen. But the fact is that you cannot protect anything you post on the internet. Even watermarks can be removed. Whilst we do our utmost to minimise the problem, we can't eradicate it.

Sorry Team I was not insinuating there is a large scale problem on here, I struggle to believe a watermark can be removed.

Can I just remind Members that this topic is about Paul's photos being ripped off from this site not for tips and what software can be used to remove watermarks to aid and abet ripping photos from websites. 😉

I think you just have to accept that it's going to happen and its naive to think your content is 'safe' even disabling right clicking on the mouse there are ways and means and sadly you just can't stop it.
