yes, you'll catch more flies with sugar than vinegar!

Certainly no harm in asking them for a fee if you wish, takedown if not. But polite and professional is the way to go.

I seldom post here, but in my defense I read and view lot!:happyblush: The only way to keep your photos safe from being stolen is to not post them on the Internet. I post my photos on my own website and also on Facebook. I do this with the knowledge that anyone may download them at any time, even though they are watermarked. A friend of mine gave me a calendar last year, using my photos for each month. Even though these photos were "save for web" at low quality, the photos on the calendar looked professional.

actually I would feel flattered if somebody did so .. maximum what I would do is to send them request to put there a credit .. I personally hate watermarks and signatures on photos .. who are we that we care so much for such a unimportant things ? I post a lot of my photos in best quality to for example unsplash .. If I have photo that I don't want to give anyone, I don't give it away .. I sell some prints and I am just flattered if somebody wants them ..

I find it flattering when people steal from me too!

For those of you who don't care if your images are used with your permission or not... keep in mind there are people who DO care. For some, it's how they put a roof over their heads, feed and cloth their children, pay their bills etc etc.....
