It's simple... Just right click your picture and select 'save picture as.'

FWIW - you can watermark and copyright your photos and even track them... I do from time to time. Interesting when you pop in and say WTF you doing with my pic, most of the time I just don't care.

here's free watermark shareware.

Here's something to get you thinking about how to protect pics... Some are simple fixes, they all have advantages and disadvantages.

Just send him a message saying that you never gave him permission to use your picture. They stop using them. Same thing happened to Miltdoggie and his Gen 3. His pic was all over ebay auctions. He cussed the shit out of all of the sellers, and now his pic is no longer there.

You should demand a percentage from his sales. :lol:
Though Epsilon was only kidding, he IS correct. Legally, they had no right to use your pic without consent, if you can prove it was yours (obvioulsy you can), you are entitled to a payment... That's why all those sites stopped using Miltdoggie's pic immediately.

Yeah, just tell him that you have proof that its your picture (via hidden watermark, or something) and the picture was edited in Photoshop.

Shit, I'd be absolutely livid if say those cheap ass ebay projectors were being sold with images of my car.

Forget about reporting it to Ebay, do what wireless says and contact a lawyer. He'll tell you flat out whether the money you WILL get would be worth it.

Epsilon That is what I am trying to do. Going about asking royalties might be hard for me. The ebay reporting might come in handy.

That's good to hear. Only take legal actions if all else fails.
