    I've had other photos stolen and used in email lists. There really isn't anything you can do about that beyond only posting tiny images on the web. Even that can't stop it. I'm thinking about going back and resizing my public photos to be very small. I have so many photos on Flickr, though. Maybe I"ll do that moving forward. What do you do to prevent further theft of your photos?

    Also, Thank You again, Tammy, for letting me know about this. I guess this is another example of the need to look out for each other. I appreciate you looking out for me very much!

    You are very welcome. I had contacted the site admins myself stating that it clearly wasn't that person's photo but 2 days later it was still there, hence why I directly told you about it, knowing that if you, as the copyright holder, contacted them yourself they would be more prompt. I suspect that person has other stolen photos too. I realise that she wasn't selling the image but it annoyed me that she was making out to have taken the photo herself and was wanting compliments she didn't deserve.

    I would do what you say and resize your photos to the smallest possible size from now on. It's difficult to stop people from stealing your work but this proves that they do get found out :)

    Well thank you again. I hope I can repay your kindness one day!

    I have always loved this picture. I got mad today, though, when it was included in an email that was forwarded to me of funny cat pictures. This photo is clearly copyrighted by Gini. Theft is uncool.
