    I am currently on a road trip and cannot access reddit on my phone. Someone posted a picture of mine on there and it's on the front page. I am not credited for it. Can I get the community to message the admin and/or the user "largestill" to properly credit me for my work, please?

    I am not at a computer but I need everyone's help. My picture of my friends dog is on reddit and I am uncredited for it. Can I get you guys to message the user "largestill" to properly give me credit.

    Here is a direct link to the picture.

    And here is my photo on my Flickr.

    If you want to really pursue this then do it the right way, make contact with the site adminstrator and have the photo removed for violating your copyrights. Others cannot do this for you as only you have the right and the information to prove the image is yours.

    Why don't you just add a comment to the Reddit page?

    And that is done with a DMCA takedown notice. You'll need to include your copyright registration certificate number.

    If you have not registered your copyright, you have no legal leverage with which to compel them to do anything. www.copyright.gov

    Good luck.

    Here is some reading for you: DMCA Takedown | Photo Attorney

    Flickr is a photo thief's jackpot.

    That photo sure is a career maker/breaker. Better get the legal team on this one...

    If you don't want to risk having your work used without accreditation then don't put it online anywhere.
