Stolen photos update

Published by at 1:56 pm under jewelry

She has removed (or FB removed) many of the stolen photos she had on her page — including mine, yay! — but still some remain — what’s more, she has the gall to try to watermark them as her own, sometimes removing the background.

Here is a photo she has in her album:

This photo originally belongs to Long Canyon Jewelry which you can see here:

It’s hard to see for sure that this was stolen, but a little more playing in photoshop shows the truth of her efforts however.

I’ve enlarged it, (so it looks terrible here, sorry) and then placed the stolen image on top. Even though she has removed the stone background and replaced it with a black one, you can plainly see the theft:

This is only one example, sadly, there are still several more stolen photos in her possession. Hopefully she will come to her senses soon and realize she can’t pass things that aren’t hers off as her own. Rebeca from Blue Buddha has a running list of all the stolen photos and their status on her blog here.

    Thanks for this post!

    Over the course of the weekend, literally dozens of images have been removed (although some have been removed, re-posted and then removed again!). There are just a few stragglers like this one remaining. Hopefully your blog post combined with continual reporting via FB from the rightful owners will eventually force her to remove all images that are not hers.

    What a mess. We have had the same picture taken down by facebook and she has put it back up (with her new watermark) 4 times now! Admittedly, it is an old picture that just shows up on our blog from 3 years ago, but it is the principle of the thing. I have fought and fought to get got shots for many years, including spending hours today editing photos from this morning, and I feel like I am doing work for someone else. Thanks for keeping up on this!

    Well said!
