It never fails, each time I go to a conference someone will tell me they just saw one of my pictures in a slide show during the previous session. I'm always surprised to hear this as I don't make my images available as slides for presentations, unless I have given specific permission. My cards have my copyright mark on them but it seems that people don't understand the implications of using a copyrighted photo for personal use. It's just not ok to use anyone's copyrighted images without asking permission. And you know what, if asked, I almost always say yes!
It's easy to go to a web site and download an image right into your own computer, but that doesn't make it ok. I do liberally give permission to breastfeeding advocacy sites and other information only sites to use my photos, with the stipulation that my (c) be listed and a link back to Attachments if possible.
If you have a retail sales site I don't allow the use of my photos, unless of course you are selling my cards! I don't mean to come off grumpy, but my work is my livelihood, please respect it and ask before you download.
I have many different images not seen on the site that are available for purchase to promote your site/project/book, just drop us a note and we'll talk.
