Please read: Sourcing photos you post on the boards!

Hi all -


Please try and remember to source items you post in your threads.


Not only does it help other members track that item down if they love it, it helps us avoid copyright issues with the people that own the image.


Here are some examples:


If you post from a Photographer's blog, include the link to the post or at least list the photographer's name.


If you post a pair of shoes, post the online store or blog where you found them.


Thanks everyone!

its really easy to post a long link too....


use the chain icon, next to the tree....


Highlight the text you want to be the link, click the chain icon, a window will pop up and you can paste the website address in there.....


 


 


its really easy to photo 882226-1


You can find this picture here


 


for example.... I posted a picture.... highlighted the word "here".... and pasted the web address

EDIT:

What if you don't have a source?


I have pictures saved on my computer from months ago, a few from years ago...

You can also try TinEye if you don't know the source of a photo to try and find it - I have sourced a couple of unknown photos through there. You just put the photo in and it searches through its galleries to find a match - its pretty limited now, but it works every once in a while.
