21  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Re: Photography/Watermark question on: August 03, 2010 09:37:36 AM
Yes, it is a tricky topic, and I'm no copyright attorney, but I've sold my digital art and photos online and off (and had my copyrights stolen).  Here are my thoughts on your question:

First of all, you're not intending to make money from the images.  You're restoring them for the people who own them for personal use.  That's a biggie, whether or not you intend to profit from someone else's work or to claim it as your own work

Secondly, if the photographer has gone out of business, I'm doubting he or she will send the copyright police to your door.

If I owned them, I'd scan them to my computer and PhotoShop the watermarks away, then reprint them and use as you suggested, but if you are not capable of doing it yourself, you may not find a digital artist willing to alter someone else's photos, (I wouldn't) so that might be your problem, finding someone willing to do it for you.  Hopefully you have family members who are proficient at PhotoShop. As for whether the photographer himself is responsible for removing the watermarks, that's probably an issue for small claims court.

That's my 2 cents worth. Hope it helps.

This is really pretty.  If I received it in the mail, I would set it up where I could look at it from my desk.

These are just soooo sweet, and I love the simplicity of your designs.  Thanks very much for the inspiration.  I've bookmarked it Smiley

You could glue them to strings or ribbons and make a curtain.

I saw recently where someone had taken corks and glued them into a picture frame, laying them on their sides where the names of the wine companies showed. It looked very cool, like a memento of good times for wine lovers.

You've done a great job; thanks for sharing your techniques.  I've been wanting to do something with a puzzle.  I keep looking at garage sales, but the only puzzles I've found so far are over 1000 pieces.  I'm really not up for that much punishment! Smiley

You've inspired so many people with your lovely, creative house.  I'm one of them Smiley Mine is just begun, and I hope to work on it (off and on) for a very long time.  So far, I've floored the kitchen and bath with hand cut stained glass tiles, and the bedroom has a floor cloth of black canvas that I painted with acrylics.  There's also a living room and of course, and art room in the attic.  The "tin" roof is corrugated cardboard that I ripped apart and painted silver. Thanks for a lovely inspiration.

I bought the house kit at Michael's.  Putting it together was the tedious part; only 18 bazillion unmarked pieces, and the instructions said "Look at the picture". There's going to be a yard, eventually.

These are great, and so much more creative than going down and buying them precut. The imperfections only show that they're handmade.  I hope you'll post some pictures when you use them on stuff.
