    Default 1st time I have ever been mad in my photography career

    I joined the "Louisiana Photographic Society", a brick and mortar club that also has a Facebook page.

    I posted a few of my favorite images, and one of the members took it apon himself to do this and make them his FB cover image. It just really pissed me off because he is a photographer and just turning my images into garbage, posting them on his page and taking credit for them (or not giving me credit when people say how great they are, even tho they make me want to throw up)

    I understand your anger over this one

    Make sure you go to Facebook and click the "I don't like this post" and then "I think it shouldn't be on face book" - "something else" - " think it is an unauthorized use of my intellectual property".

    I started to do this on your behalf but didn't want to be seen to claim your IP.

    FYI I was able to identify the offender by a similar looking images posted to the group. He does have a lot of garish looking images on his timeline.

    I think you should also just tell the dude that it's not cool.

    Wow. That's not cool. I believe it's time for a public shaming.

    Those are pretty horrendous even without the fact that they are stolen.

    I finally called it out on the FB page of the Louisiana Photographic Society. He is gone (deleted his FB page and created another one. I told all members to check out his other FB page where he sales his "artwork". I am not sure if my stuff was ever on his artwork for sale page, I didn't notice that page until a few hours ago.
