FLICKR Users Beware!

Recommended Posts

That's why every photo that matters to me is watermarked (small, but clear) on Flickr and limited to between 700-1024 pixels.

 

It's too easy to present Flickr content on other pages.

Me too, watermarked and limited to 800 pixels on longest side, but my biggest security is the fact that nobody would want my photos in the first place. :)

I didn't want to be tacky and say that. :ninja:

 

But people do lift photos from Flickr and use them. I had a finalist in a photo contest recently. The contest finalists were shown in a Flickr group. A magazine asked all the finalists for permission to use their photos in a future issue. It's not a big high budget publication, so I said okay, knowing there wasn't any payment. I don't know how many of the finalists agreed.

 

At least they asked for permission.
