Privacy reasons are certainly the main concern. The second concern is bandwidth. Stripping EXIF information makes images considerably lighter at web-sizes. This makes it a better experience of 99% of viewers who do not care about how the image was made. Lastly, the information may not exist. A lot of images on the web are composites, be it HDR/Exposure ...

In the US, there is really not any debate. The creator of the work automatically has copyright, except in the case of works-for-hire, where someone else does. Posting, reblogging, or sharing that work doesn't destroy that right. In some cases, you may be able to claim that your painting is transformative, and not a derivative of the original. But the ...

Google Reverse Image search does wonders and so does TinEye to find out where your photos have been posted. Both are very useful!

sRGB is the STANDARD So stick with sRGB, it is the STANDARD for web content. I fail to see any reasons to not use Adobe RGB when it comes to JPEG files whatever you are posting them on web sites or simply looking at them in your PC... The REASON is as stated: sRGB is the DEFAULT STANDARD for all web content, not AdobeRGB. Don't use AdobeRGB for web ...

Picasa Web Albums work best. It meets the following of your requirements: You can catalog a large number of photos (you may need to purchase additional storage from Google based on image resolution, but its relatively cheap) You can tag individuals and add categories. You can customize your privacy settings and sharing options. It's really easy to set-up, ...

If you can set up your Raspberry Pi to listen on WiFi, my suggestion is as follows: Install imagemagick on the Pi to get the convert utility. Set up the Pi with an SSID and NFS/SMB/whatever shared folder to receive the images. Script something in bash like for x in *.jpg; do convert -resize 50% $x; done. You can poll the folder on the Pi for changes, too, ...

If you want well-known masters of photography, then here are two sites. Profotos has a lot of narrative about the photographers, with links to photographs. Masters of Photography has a lot of images, but the site is littered with pop-up ads, so may put you off Atget Photography is a good combination of image galleries and short biographies on a number of ...

Privacy and default export settings (like Itai said) do play an important role but there's another factor A photographer may research a location, travel there in the right time of year, wake up at unreasonable hours to get there on time for sunrise - again and again and again waiting for the perfect weather, obsess about the exact camera location and take ...

From their relevant Support page: width 880px for photos in landscape orientation, height 900px for images in portrait orientation. Even when you submit your images in that size, they will still get resized for display in thumbnails, and on iOS devices. Oh, and your carefully prepared originals in correct size are still recompressed into smaller files. The ...

Look at the channel for weather here. I get an email to my phone for various weather presets I made. https://ifttt.com

Yes, there is a breathtaking amount of copyright infringement going on on the internet. The thing is: where it concerns images, most of it happens with the implicit approval of the copyright holders, who basically like to have their stuff shared and pinned and retweeted all over the internet (at least by consumers) because that gets them attention and ...

I don't think the question, "is .photography currently a good choice for a portfolio website" is the right question to ask. In my opinion, you should be asking if MoritzLost.photography (as an example) is the right brand for you. If the brand you present (content and portfolio) is good, then it will work for you. If your brand is mediocre, then it probably ...

Bottom line is: you can't protect against this. If the images are shown on the screen, they are in the memory of the client computer and can be extracted one way or another. You can make this slightly harder, for example by capturing right-clicks in the client's browser but that's only a small hurdle for people to jump over - they can either install a ...

You can't just use them without permission. See the ⓘ symbol in the lower right corner of the image on Bing, right next to the arrows for previous and next image? That shows you the copyright information for that particular image. You could follow that information and get a license — most of the images are from stock photo agencies and I doubt Bing has an ...

The online free version of Photoshop Express really should go by a different name. Even with the "express" moniker, it does not do the desktop software justice. It does serve a purpose, but it is not for extensive use or a rigorous workflow full of hundreds of images. I was pleasantly surprised by the speed and capabilities of the online suite. It is very ...

Lightroom is a great app for organisation and workflow and from version 3 you can set up your Flickr, Smugmug/Facebook, whatever sharing accounts, and post directly from within Lightroom once you're happy with your photo :-) EDIT: Lightroom features website -- has a little video on there of publishing photos to external service. Flickr would also give you ...

KEH and B&H Photo would be the big two in the US. Other big camera dealers like Adorama also sell used gear. B&H offers a 90 day warranty on used gear. KEH has a 6 month warranty and 14 day no questions asked return policy

1x is known for strict selection of photos. Feature Shoot is a blog with frequent articles on interesting photographers, mostly consisting of photos, but often also featuring a short interview.

Photos are displayed at 2048px on their longest edge. Have a read on 500px support page for more details.

I usually do something like the following (in bash): original=something.tif reduced=${original%.tif}.jpg options="-resize 720 -auto-orient -strip -unsharp 3x1+0.5 -quality 85" convert $original $options $reduced -auto-orient will get the correct orientation if the camera has a gravity sensor, -strip will remove the metadata and the thumbnail (usually ...

At least according to Wikipedia, these types of sites can be referred to as geolocation-oriented photo sharing sites. Here is the list of what I use: Flickr Map Google Maps(Click on "Photos" feature) Photosynth on Bing Maps(I click into it from the PS site) Google Earth Panoramio(The same as the two above) - More info at StackOverFlow Stuck On Earth(iPad) ...

No. Photostream is a view of all photographs in the account. Flickr offers Albums, Galleries, and Collections, where you can arrange groups of photographs together as you'd like, but the photostream (and once it comes out of beta, the Camera Roll) will, according to Flickr staff comments, always be the full view of any photographs set to be publicly ...

I. Preparations. a) The first rule. If you do not want anyone to use your photos, do not publish them. Once they are published they can be "pirated" in some way or another. b) Be very clear on the licence of your photos. Probably you can licence some under a creative commons one, or on the contrary, state that you can not use them in anyway without a fee ...

What about displaying a low-quality and low-resolution thumbnail, to advertise what image they are about to pay for; and a small detail in full resolution and final quality, to advertise what quality they are about to pay for?

Well, first thing I saw when trying to upload an image is a dialog saying that it only supports JPEG images of at most 16 megapixels, so I guess it answers the most part of your question.

Never seen this online, it takes a LOT of processing power. There is a free one that comes with Hugin tough. It is called align_image_stack.

If you maintain multiple not obviously connected accounts (Flickr or otherwise) and wish to keep those accounts independent of each other - for whatever reason - then this is a potential weakness. If the same serial numbers are displayed, then those serial numbers could be used as a way to connect those accounts (Flickr to Flicker, or perhaps Flicker to ...

First, you should be aware that most wide screen laptops are not 16:9 - they are made with the screen shorter to reduce size and cost, for example, you said your monitor is 1600x700 - you don't need too much math to work out this is 16:7 and not 16:9. Now that we got that out of the way it's actually easy to make a picture into a desktop background: First, ...

Have a look at Pwinty http://www.pwinty.com . It's a nice simple API for ordering photos - and you don't need users to leave your site like the other options suggested. they offer world wide shipping. I don't think Peecho offers much in the way of prints and posters and doesnt't look like fotomoto offers what you want either
