Somebody stole my photo!!!!!!!!! - Page 2

post #16 of 158
and the wide difference in photo quality. your photo and the doll photo are obviously don't take photos for a living, in somebody's home, photos. the other two look like staged professional quality food artist photos.

I left a "feedback" message for the chef...I think we all should...and I think we should all let her know that we know what she's doing and shes not going to get away with it...

i think my comment made that very clear to her...

The only thing is she may not know the page is still up....

The rest of her site does not match and does not seem to include links to that page. The only way I found the page is it comes up quite high on the "sculptured cakes" search on Yahoo.

I do think she should remove the page, even if the links are dead. Because it still takes people to her home page. I would have a hard time trusting that her work is good if I know she is stealing pix.

How do you add the watermark? I have a website packed with pictures, and this is something I'm always worried about! I do a lot of decorated cookies, so I have to make samples of each one to show the designs. It's a lot of extra work, money, and time for those pictures, so I would be furious if they were stolen! That's too funny that she didn't even cut out your kitchen items!

I'd definitely report her to the BBB. Chances are, if she's stealing pictures, she probably can't really make those designs....so she's got a trail of angry, cheated customers!

That is so, so cheap and lazy!!! I can't believe that someone could be so low and underhanded! I would definitely report her to the BBB! That is such a slap in the face. But at least she has good taste in cake thievery!! LOL I hope that she learns her lesson from this. So sorry that it happened to you, Kita.

My guess would be that she is a member here at CC and feeds off everyone's unique creations. I would highly suggest using a watermark when posting ALL photos on the internet.

God works in mysterious ways and it's really strange that you found that site. I can't imagine how you felt. That is really a low blow from her.

Take it as a compliment that your soccer cake was so well done and beautiful that it promoted someone to 'steal' it as their own. However, it should have not happened at all.

Actually all photos are copyrighted since you hold the negative or memory card thats one way to back it up if she ever said that it was hers.

I hate people like that ....I often think about this and think maybe i should post my pictures but its not that I dont want to share because i do because im proud and i think you guys are the only ones that know what goes into my cakes and appreciates them, since my family does not get it. So i keep posting dont let it get you down just remember to add your name and hopefully she wont strike again.

If I were you I would give 350 degrees Chef a phone call. They have their phone number on their home page.

I KNEW I had seen that dinosaur cake before!!!!!! I am a big fan of the secure cake store site and love to get ideas from them. (Actually my Eeyore cake and my lamb cake are done by using a cake from their site...)

The least she could have done is at least try to make them and take her own photos!

Hey I was looking at her "press releases" and I could not find anything on them that would show what paper or news station they were "released" to.

To me her whole site is kinda strange.

Wow....securecakestore is amazing! I can't believe she used other people's photos.

I think maybe you should watermark all of you creations on your site if this has upset you so, and rightfully so, I would do that as soon as you can, and then repost them, on there. You put a lot of work into your site, and your cakes.

I think I will try to do that today....I want to redo my website but that will take too much time.

I wouldn't say it really upset me that bad...its just odd, and surprising, and disappointing that someone would do that.

I'm sure she isn't getting tons of business from my cake pic, its just one of my earlier ones anyway. Its just the principle.
