    So, it's come to my attention on another forum (non-photography related) that a member there has had a photo of mine as her desktop for 5 years. She has no idea where she got it.

    So, basically, someone stole one of my photos 5 years ago. I started searching, trying to see if anything came up, and found links and names from several people (most of whom are no longer here) from here on a page, including one of mine (not the one I was looking for, though).

    The page is very confusing, and I'm trying to figure out what it is: (CLICK AT YOUR OWN RISK) Flowers/Floral Stuff - zjrg.com - Powered by chcms

    The picture I originally set out to try to figure out who stole it is not going to be an easy task, as it's a picture of a rose . . . so . . .well . . . search that out and try to get narrowed down results, and you'll see what I mean.

    Anyone here good at tracking down such things ? Or figuring out what the heck the above page is?

    It kindof looks like someone copy and pasted the flower thread in themes from here. I want to know how to get it taken down.

    You might want to try a search by filename, as that may be something that wasnt changed. Of course, if someone saved the image and posted it somewhere else, your chance of finding it is pretty slim, unless it is a remarkably unique and identifiable shot.

    Well, I'm starting to think I over-reacted on the first one that I thought was stolen, but the link I posted above still has me confused.

    This is common and probably not done by any person but automatically... Basically stealing website content.

    Whois output for that domain places it in Hong Kong... which means action is limited

    google their address as per toolsonline domain search, and find some dubious references.
