As many of you have noticed, many of the avatars i create are taken from beautiful photographers from very talented persons.

I think that they deserve much more credit as they are getting from us and as for this reason, i have started asking those photographers permission for using their photos for creating avatars.

So far, i have got some positive and negative answers. This means, that i will remove the avatars i created for which i don't have permission to use the photos. I will also message users that use avatars showing photos of those photographers and ask to change their avatar.

For those for which i have permission, i will systematically post a link back to the photographer and his online site from which i took the picture. I am also thinking of creating a link for users to post in their signature linking back to the photographer, but it's not sure yet. it depends on the photographer...

In the meanwhile, i will restructure the avatar thread, which might take some time to do. I will still be open for requests and questions.

Regards,

ichisumi

nice idea ichisumi!
i think it's just fair to give all these great people the credit to show that it was them who made the pictures.

so far... very good! :D

posting them here no, sorry. :tired:

i don't want to get emails saying that "person stole my photos etc." That's why i only post avatars of users that gave me personnaly their agreement. (aka, i keep the emails with thair agreement in case they come to me to complain)

if you have friends here that want to use your avatars, i have no problem, as long as you don't "post" the avatars on a thread. :)

what you can aslo do, is putting a link to your avatars in your signature... but if i get a complaints about the photographers, i will have to pm you about it. ok?

Hello again. I hope I'm not bothering you. I asked one of the photographers to give permission to create avas for myself and maybe share them here and she agreed. Can I use my signature space to post them? If you want to check I can send you her email adress so you can ask yourself or forward the email she sent me.

if she gave you permission to use her photos for your avatars, it's fine. if you make them for others, fine too, as long as it goes over PM and not a topic is posted about it.

keep the email where she confirms you that you can use her photos. you never know if someone is going to complain
