It seems I have only run into amateurs who refuse to post images online because they are worried someone might download it. Or if they do post they often put ugly copyright notices on their images. Fortunately here at Photrio those that post don't go the copyright notice route. But really what can someone do with a 1000px (just over 3 inches) image anyway. The worst they can do is put it on their own website and represent it as their own. As an amateur your not loosing any money and you will probably never know. Nor will your friends. The big name pros don't seem to have a problem putting up their images. Why is it that it's mainly amateurs who are so paranoid?
