    I had a picture taken of the family by a professional for free at work. I want the camera store to scan it for me and make it into a card.

    Will they give me a hard time about copying the professionals work.

    Only the pro has the right to "scan it and make it into a card". Anything else is considered theft.

    If they are a decent lab, they will refuse to do anything with it, unless you have a copyright release from the photog

    Here's the deal, the dude spent 1000s of dollars/euros/pounds on equipment, busted his hump learing how to make people look good in a picture (good enough for you to want to copy), made himself available for you to preserve your look on film - So I think all of that (and more) is His Work, and don't you think he should be paid for his work? Don't you think you should say "Hey I like this pic will you please make me another one?"

    I'm gonna have to agree with what everyone else has said.
    If the lab is any good, they'll turn you down, and are right to!

    You should go to the photographer and ask him for more prints, or perhaps he could have you a postcard set made.

    Ditto everybody else.

    You don't own the rights to the image.

    I can respect everyones replies.

    I just bought a tripod and will make my own shot.

    That has more meaning anyway.

    This kind of idea goes right along with the idea of buying a guitar and recording your own album since you can legally copy a CD.

    Sure, but I'd say it's easier to get a studio style picture than play a rock concert, if you're starting from scratch. Might cost a bit to get it right...but it can happen...

    Plus you can take 1000 till it turns out...aahhah
