Private / public information?

So how does a picture of my puppy end up in a random grouping of photos on the internet? I googled golden pics and there she was. I deleted all my photos off this forum and a little concerned about private information being out there too, I've deleted as much as possible. Should I be concerned??

Ugh. That is disappointing. The photos are public if they have been shared here. Hopefully the other info is protected.

Good to know, thank you. Having done programing my imagination went amuck and saw it as a way into my computer.

Facebook is the same way, at least it was a few years back. Nothing on the internet, or even your phone is truly private :/

There is actually a few very famous pictures that were from members on this forum. I see them going viral every once in a while. One picture, the owner has actually seen them on pillows and other items being sold. If there is something that you do not want reused, then I do recommend putting a watermark on them. Sad we need to worry about these things.

also, be careful
There was just an article going around facebook about how people can get location data from pictures taken with your phone.
It's a scary world out there

Did you happen to see the source of the photo? Did you just see it in the Google images search return? If so, it may have just been showing your photo from the forum. Obviously, anyone can copy the photos and use them if they want. In that case, you have a couple options - you can click on the "report photo" link provided by Google and ask that it be removed, and 2) you can contact the company using it and ask them to stop. If they don't, you can seek legal help. Typically a single letter from a lawyer will do the trick.

One other tactic is to lower the quality of the images before you upload them. Most commercial businesses will need a large/crisp image. I will purposely convert or change the image size before I upload them so that it is less desirable - just like the photo below. It's clear enough for everyone here to see, but can't be zoomed in to copy for use on a t-shirt or advertising print.

I don't do FB but will do some research. It's not even a great photo?! Just a puppy pic. But certainly don't want to have any location data possibly broadcasted. Thanks I will definitely use this advice or stop posting pics!

Although anyone that goes to that much trouble to find me will be sadly disappointed :-) I live a very simple life but try and take my dogs?? I will shoot first and ask questions later.

As stated earlier anything on the net is up for grabs. It would be nice if that wasn't the case but it is. I once came across a photo I posted of my boat being used by someone else on another forum as their avatar. Just so you know any photo on any page can be saved to your or anyone else's computer by simply right clicking on the image and selecting "save image" or "copy image" once you've done that it's pretty much yours to do with as you please. As far as a security risk to your account, not really they've only copied the picture there are no other secrets attached. If you are concerned about your rights to the image a photo forum group could probably give you far more info on that than you probably need.
