Because I Don't Want To Spoil It






For those Vixens that won't see 'Identity Crisis' for a couple of days, but I did want to post new pictures, I thought I'd ask for opinions instead. Should I stick to the old watermark in the bottom corner, or should I go the way of thereel and individually mark each picture where it will be harder to get rid of?

Individually marking them may make them harder to sell, but it may also spoil them for anyone who just wants them to look at...batch marking is quicker, but obviously leaves them open to cropping. I have no real preference, although I found individually marking each one hard because it means marring that fine figure occasionally. Decisions, decisions :-D
P.S I really enjoyed this new episode, although I felt rather sorry for the criminal in the end.

MMMM to those curls, the w/marks are both good, the one thats off center is more legible. I don't know why the seller is allowed to sell those pics, even the reel puts a disclaimer up, I am sure "she" will still do it what any of us do ( I am sure she is downloading right now-no wonder our blogs are slow sometimes::))

*makes loving gurgling noises* Damn but he looks SO fine. I'm sure the loss of the curls was 'justified' for whatever Vincent was doing at the time, but it also kind of makes me mourn them...and have homicidal tendencies towards the barber!!


Every time I see the latest haul on sale on Ebay - I see she wants $15 for one of USA's photos at the moment!! - I want to watermark right across the middle of any screencaps, BUT that then spoils it for everyone. I've turned off 'public' access to any pictures from our Bucket to try and piss on her parade, but of course, she's not proud where she steals from. Let's just hope no one is dumb enough to pay her anything, and the bottom drops out of her 'market'. Perhaps we should all watermark like Hallmark does (top left)...but then that annoys me, even when Hallmark do it. Nope, seems the best hope is she goes out of business - SOON :0)

I'm going to have to insist the UK moves their Public Holidays from Monday when it 'interferes' with access to new Bobby!

I go for the corner. I openly admit that I copy your caps and all the other wonderfully talented ladies'. Do what you have to do to keep someone from stealing. She just made it bad for the rest of us.

Diane, is there anyway that those of us who don't profit from others hard work can still get your lovely caps?? Please.....I'm giving you my best lost puppy look.....

BTW, I prefer the one under the gross USA logo.

Diane said...

Fuzzy, I emailed you at your blog email address.

OOoohhh, thank you, thank you!!
The curlzzz are back :-D
I guess there might be people who don't agree with me, but I'd say put the watermarks on the centre of the pics.

Difficult one. It really would be a very long process to individually mark several hundred caps, not something I could consider. I hate to see Jeannette stealing your stuff (I've had some interesting replies from my comments to her about that) and I will (thanks to you) soon have my own pictures, so the intrusion doesn't matter to me the way it may to others.

Lot of help, am I not?

Oh, and I am absolutely besotted by the pictures, with his lovely curls. Thank you! Can't wait for the episode to arrive.

Curls..curls..scruffines..EEEHHH..MMMMMMM..sweet Bobby!!He looks sooo cuddly..woof!!;)))

Since the Cretin who takes caps from others and sells them as her own is still operating along with a couple of others. AND for all the work it takes to cap I'd follow the Reel.

Caps are beautiful either way and oh those curls.

My selfish me says: Please leave them in the corner. I like it better that way, I hate watermarks that spoil the picture.

But if you feel you can only/best keep your work from getting copied and sold as someone else's, than do watermark in the middle of the picture.

People like her make me furious...
