Tortoise Portrait

A quick update, I’m feeling a little bit sick and I should be going to sleep.

(Oh, I should say, I am thinking about putting a small watermark on hotlinked images (images that are being hosted on but are being displayed on other sites), something that says the image is being hosted on and that attribution details can be found by going to the site. I feel like a jerk doing that though, because almost none of these pictures are really ours. It would allow people to find the original photographer though, and promote our site a little bit. What do you think? Leave a comment. Aaand this made this not so quick of a post.)

If they don’t feel bad about stealing your bandwidth, I don’t think you need to feel bad about putting a little watermark on the images.

It’s what I do with MCS! If you want a copy of the script, I’d be happy to send it to you, just email or IM me.

From my (limited) polling, a watermark is GREAT advertising, and I’d say a good portion of my current audience came to the site because of it. Just be clear that you’re not claiming ownership, or else you’ll get all sorts of ugly emails from clueless people

Just do it already, oi. I don’t know why you feel like a jerk because they aren’t your pics because part of the reason you are doing it is so they can get credit!

Alright, I guess I’ll set that up sometime soon then. If I ever feel really uncomfortable about it, I can just disable it later.

Adam: I’ll probably contact you soon to ask about the code.

Nice shot.
