    Starman,

    Unfortunately many photo links do not contain links back to the homepage, so this is not always possible.

    In this case I was able to source the user of this photo. It is someone who I granted permission after I contacted him the first time I noticed it was re-posted with the file name changed. I wasn't contacted that time either, but the site owner did subsequently credit me per my request. Since the deed was done, there wasn't much I could do except show good grace.

    I consider changing the file name to be in very poor form in any instances of re-posting, with or without permission granted.

    I could "brand" my photos, but I don't like anything to interfere with the look of the photo, and I feel that this should not be required if a little common courtesy is shown.

    Photos should never be reposted without permission! If you can't find the owner to seek permission, then don't re-post. It's as simple as that.

    In this case, all is well (or as well as it can be). I would have preferred that my file headers remain unchanged, but like I said, the deed was done.

    Incidently, I have never refused anyone use of my photos. I am not a stingy man, but I do take pride in my growing and photography. Imagine how I would feel if someone asked me why HIS photo was on MY website?

    When I first visited the mentioned website, I thought that the owner had to be God judging from the quality and quantity of the plants he was growing. Then I found out it was just a "Best of Bob Z's Site". But there was no way of telling this, as the author did not mention the fact on his site.

    If you want to show a photo like this to a friend, or to clear up an ID issue or whatnot, it would be better to post a link to the original photo. This is what Bob Z has done on his site, and that is acceptable: the file headers remain unchanged and all such links lead only to the original photo or website.

    There have been instances where entire website photo contents have been lifted and reused without permission. Fernando could tell you about that little faracas! Whether is is one photo ot a hundred, it is not right. Just because there is nothing that anyone can do to stop such use still doesn't make it right~!

    SInce I granted permission previously, nothing was stolen. Borrowed might be a better term. The author was both courteous and respectful once I contacted him. His intentions were good, he just put the hart before the corse.
