    Exclamation Editing another member's photos

    Hi members!

    Some people are totally cool with other members editing their photos. Others prefer that no one edit their photos. Others prefer that people ask first.

    Effective immediately there is an option in the USER CP to let people know if it's okay or not to edit your photos. This information will show up in the about me section that is public for each member. It will also show up in every single post at the top right.

    So please take a moment to fill in this information by going to USER CP (link in blue navbar) - Edit Your Details and check the appropriate box where it says Allow Others to Edit My Photos?

    Thx all!

    Please note - Although these settings should be respected, members are absolutely free to allow other members to edit their photos for particular posts only (so long as they clearly mention that in the particular thread they post obviously). Personally, that's the way I'm doing it even though I realize that I'll be in the minority. (sorry to be anal on that one).

    Thx all!

    Marko

    Man I can't decide!

    I don't mind at all if someone feels they want to edit one of my photos to illustrate a point of view or something ... but ... I'm not sure I boldly want to advertise that and perhaps encourage the practice.

    Maybe a 3rd option? ... "Please ask before Editing my photos"

    Hey MA,

    Hmmmm..... a 3rd option eh?

    If others think that adding that 3rd choice is a good idea...I'll add it.

    I just figured it was a yes/no thing (95 % of the time for most people)...and that that could be modified on a per image basis the odd time.

    Lemme know!
    Thx - Marko

    hmm I can see why people would want to edit my photos but then do I want to provide open access only to have them sell my brilliant work and make a fortune?

    I can MA's point but isn't that addressed by the option of stating in the thread that it is okay?

    I'm not bothered if you want to add the 3rd option. I'll just leave mine blank

    That's cool MA - I see the reasoning here so I added that 3rd option.

    Thx
