    Are all of the pictures on your instagram page yours? If not, did you pay/give credit to the originals?

    Also, that same image is all over the web. Are all these you?

    I post hundreds of pictures from google on forums every week with no idea of where they're coming from. In this day and age I think it'll be a struggle for photographers to keep an eye on where their work is getting posted.

    Good luck. Nice pics btw, and your lass is a massive wad. :cool:
  4. Watermark them or make your insta account private

    They were already watermarked at the maximum size I'd be happy with. It's a profile I use for marketing as well so can't really make it private. Just an occupational hazard I've decided.

    Shame when this happens. Without going in to details (since I'm not sure whether I'm allowed to) I know someone who had a photo they took of a politician become politically relevant a few decades later. It was ripped straight from their (private) website, all watermarks and digital watermarks stripped, and used by a major newspaper in a cover story without any credit. It went viral and was re-posted all over the internet and news (still without payment and credit). In the end they managed to chase it up and get payment from the newspaper, but basically a token fee.
