    Dun post

    think that it is not possible unless you password protect the folder and limit it to only your frens to view ... this is assuming that your frens would not leech ur photos ...

    those yahoo photo or online photo upload site are not able to leech protect you site.
    some website allow to use the .htaccess to prevent the jpg file from being leech like this web.

    Maybe try Webaperture...

    Yeah screencapture is able to leech the photos right off, but the photos would be in low res. Most competitions require photos to be of at least a certain resolution.

    So when you post, dont post the original. Limit the size when you can. Most of the time they will automatically resize for you but some hosting sites still show the original...

    is it possible that you change the metafile data in your pictures with your copyright? I think whoever takes your photos and tries to edit them wont be able to change your copyright on your photo.. It's like your dna on that photo that cant be removed.. unless he use print screen.. I think it's like that.. i read in a book somewhere.. i think the photos must be in raw format to edit the metadatas.

    Your copyright notice, 40% of the image area.
    Your lawyer name, 40% of the image area.
    Your photo, 20% of the image area.

    Now, your message is loud and clear.

    I read this line

    "Your photos are copy righted by default but to get damages it must be registered."

    Line extracted from "Learn to Copyright your Photograph "

    Not sure does it apply in Singapore too ?

    That's if you wish the police to handle for you as it can be considered theft - criminal case.

    If not, you can hire your own lawyer to file a civil suit, and sue to copyright infringement.

    That's what I remember correctly when I tried to file a suit against some leechers the other time. T'was fun (for me).

    OIC.

    Don't think I will be in your shoe as mine works all so so only. Don't worth any money.

    So in the end did you win the case ? Or get any payment from those leechers ?

    You can make their leeching more difficult but cannot stop them from doing so.

    I got a friend who setup a web page and said that his photos are safe because he use some protection.

    After a while I email some of his "proctected" photos to him to proof that I still can leech his photos loh.

    You can always use screen capture.
