Image gift published by "friend"

My image never placed in any contests but it would have been nice to be asked for copyright permission, which I would have granted, free. Nothing I can or would do about it at this time. How shoud one handle these gifts? I never dreamed she would use it without permission, an "artist" should know better.

Let her know you are thinking of taking a picture of one of her pieces of art and entering it in a few contests... see what her reaction is
Then i would definitely give her a piece of your mind and explain copyright.

It can be a subtle way of making sure your gifts stay as gifts.
You will know the gift was not being received as such, if you get and reaction about the stamp, which should open up a dialogue for you about the final intended use of the image.
Hope this helps.
