Awesome. At least they have good taste.

It's really annoying since they've stripped everything from the image and don't give credit to the rightful owners. Time to send them an email letting them know what's up.

I'll get my brother to send it since he's a copyright lawyer.


im guessing since you cant just rightclick and copy images from DPC you have to screencap, thus no exif.

apparently dpc has become their personal stock image repository

Oh my -- I just searched for one of my images, and 9 pages of results showed up!! Most of the results were pininterest pages, but some were facebook pages, some businesses. Freaky...

time to watermark the images here again, it would be nice if it happened automatically once voting ended.

I have to say the guy has pretty good taste in images.

It feels weird... Luckily no other searches are finding anything.

if someone is using you images to promote their business, you are entitled to compensation. i wouldn't just go for a take down, i'd go after money since they may have made money getting jobs based on your images.

The annoying thing with watermarks is either you make them so obtrusive that's it's not even worth looking at the image or it's easily removed if you know how to use PS or the GIMP.

Agreed. In the US, it's a little more wide open then in Canada. We just passed a bunch of new laws and provisions last year which limit damages and restitution the copyright holder can seek.

Wait -- where's the watermark option? I thought I turned it on, but my images don't seem to be watermarked...

Portfolio -> Watermark Options -> (choose options)

Only works for challenge entries.

Not like any of my stuff would appear anywhere, but from where are you dragging the photos into Google? Mine only shows the submission form and maybe that is correct, but seems odd.

just go to Google.com select "Images" to search for images and drag and drop an image into the search field.

this is something i do every 6 months or so, if anyone knows a better methods, i'm sure we'd all be happy to hear it.

The problem is you folks are too good. I'll bet you never see someone using one of MY images.

To avoid these problems in the future, simply forget all you know about light and composition and learn to do post processing by rolling your face on the keyboard while the image is in Essentials.

Problem solved

I was thinking the same thing, who would want one of my images.
Then I looked and someone took my goldfish shot.
This one.

I was able to do it all in the browser, dragging an image from a DPC page over to the Google page, open in another tab.

I can't even look at the site as I am using WOT and it shows very poor rating for it:
