    Recently, I was helping a student wanting a source for portrait printing. I logged onto the site of the lab I use (I'd never done so before) and there, on their homepage, was one of my images. Fun!

    I'd post the link, but I'm not sure that's proper to do.

    if they did not ask for permission and did not inform you, that is outrageous and certainly a copyright infringement.

    It's a small lab... a dad, daughter and son with one additional employee that does finishing. I've used them for years and REALLY like the personal service. They've helped me out of some binds on many occasions... helping through the film to digital days. Great product too! I think of them as friends, so no worries about using my image. Honestly, I can't remember if they asked or not.

    Their site is www.rnrcolour.net

    The bride in profile on the home page is mine... available light.

    OK, that is a totally different story then! :) I'm just a bit careful because one sees bad things happen where images ar stolen and used for commercial purposes.

    Anyway, congrats, and the shot is nice :)

    Pete, that's a beautiful image! I can see why selected it for their front page. They seem like a high quality company!

    Great shot and congrats. I would ask them to give you photo credit, though. Right now their site implies that they have copyright of the image. I doubt that it would cause problems down the line, but I think it's good to at least protect your copyright, just in case.
