Yes it is Bill, and these are just the two we know about. While I don't usually get hot under the collar about this sort of thing anymore even I think this has gone too far!

flock is a neat little browser.... ever use it? i did for a little while

if you have a flickr account or a photobucket you can simply DRAG any image you find online onto a little tool bar and it will save that image to your acct.... nifty huh?

if you are a photo thief!!!!!!!!!!!!

this is just making me sick

omg army! i just looked and they sure have a similar layout and feel to that page
i'm looking at the home page to see now if it's POWERED by pixsy like these other sites seem to be!

i think for now we need to also STOP TAGGING our pictures! their little spider crawlers are looking at tags...... no wonder we are being TOLD to tag our pics all the time! how stupid have we been?

I have an uncomfortable feeling that perhaps FT knows about this.......... I read a quote about their business model (pixsy's) about push-through advertising

Jaapie - I had to go thru the end of 6 google image pages before finding my 1st image - regular google search turned up my FT on page 3.........- .... one search on pixsy brought up 350 of my images - 1st time.....
it's more than a search engine

I stopped tagging when FT started displaying the tags under the pics, purely because I didn't like seeing them there - glad I did now!

now I do understand.... nothing is safe anymore,, thieving is everywhere..
no respect for other people...!!

I think I am going to un-tag all of mine!

i use to tag JUST friday themes, sweetsaturday , memorytuesday and reflectionthursday ... JUST those tags, nothing additionally, no matter what is on the photo ...

Good idea about stopping the Tags.
Nov 22 2007 15:06 GMT hans55 PRO

I have posted to the forum about tags other issues raised in these comments...

Great honour and very bad thing to do

Best Travel - Looks very similar to Pixsy and Flock (Have not checked that one yet)

I wonder how many more web pages are going to be posting our photos without even asking us if they can or not.

Watermarks required quickly methinks

Methinks the same Bowser......
I have now started to put my copyright on my images.... but it's going in the centre of the shots in order to make it more difficult for it to be removed.

what a shame!!!! how can they? . i thought we were free of this problem but i can see we really have to be careful and put the copyright indeed in our photos!!!!
