    Ever hear of the site hi5.com?

    I was just checking the stats on some of my photos over on photobucket and one of my pictures has over 1,000 views from that site. Apparently someone there decided that they should use my picture without permission.

    Here is the image someone decided to steal.

    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    That is why most photographers put watermarks on their photos.

    Yep, but I can only do very basic things with it.

    Around 2005 I posted some pics I'd taken for Bike Rod & Kustom at Interbike and a guy on the Schwinn forum was stealing them en masse. Big brouhaha, but they were hosted on a site for a business I was part of. We had some fun with the links replacing the pictures.

    Woohoo, figured it out. I'm sure the watermark can be better but it will work for now.

    If you have 1,000 views, then someone hotlinked it, right? Can you do something to disable hotlinking?

    If someone copied it and pasted it somewhere else on the 'net, you would never know because the views wouldn't go up.

    I've hotlinked the same photo myself, that is what I use photobucket for. Disabling hotlinking would defeat the purpose of the site. I just replaced the photo with one with a watermark on it, hopefully that will take care of the problem. From now on I'll be watermarking most of my photo's.

    Got a friend that's an amature photographer. His main gig is IT tech support, runs a tech radio show, writes tech for local paper and tv station.

    He found some guy was hot linking his photo from Flickr of all things a chocolate cake baked in a coffee cup in a microwave. His solution was to whip up a little code that replaced the pic the guy was hot linking with a long rant about scum bags that steal other peoples art and bandwidth without permission that was really funny and made the guy look like a moron. Problem solved.

    I looked it up. Here is the URL to The Bald Heretic which is his Blog: http://www.baldheretic.com/2009/02/page/2

    Low, you should do a tineye.com search of your photo.
