Re: e-group UK forum terms and conditions

I understand the concern here, but the terms and conditions are quite clear and I believe that the benefits are tangible. BUT, it's always best if you ask permission before altering someone else's picture. I will update the T&C to require permission to be sought from the photographer - at least to clarify if that photographer is happy for his or her photographs to be altered as a matter of course here on the the forum.
I thought I'd read the T&C carefully when I joined, but I must admit I didn't notice this.

I'd sort of thought there might be software that wouldn't let pictures be downloaded, because there's so much stuff about people taking pictures and using them somewhere else, being able to right click on any picture site is open to abuse. Mind you, I don't know if I'd be annoyed or pleased if it happened to something of mine, I think it would depend how and where it was used.

I've posted pictures on other sites, nobody has ever downloaded and edited them without asking first, in fact they've always asked if I'd send them a copy by email. I hadn't imagined anybody would do it without asking beforehand. So I suppose it puts me in the "No, not unless you ask first" camp.

I know I haven't been here very long, so perhaps I shouldn't have said anything.
