Photo Theives

post #1 of 36

I never thought my cakes were worthy of stealing. Just found out today after doing some searches on Google Images that my cakes were on 7 different sites. One site had 29 of my cakes out of the 59 that are on their wedding and engagement page. Now to get them to remove the photos. This should be fun.

What did you type in when you did your search?

I don't know how dsilvest found out, but one way to do it is to upload an image of yours onto the Tineye website and hit search - if your photo is on any other pages they will come up. You can then contact the thieves and request removal.

Drag one of your photos into the search area of Google Images. That's it.

I was able to locate the IP addresses as well as the provider of all of the thieves.. Emails have been sent to both parties. Now I wait.

I found my teal butterfly cake on a site -- someone used it in a thread to wish someone else a happy birthday. Which is fine IF they had given credit where credit is due! (Which they did NOT!) icon_confused.gif So I wrote the site and the admin took it off with her apologies. icon_biggrin.gif

Oops - just noticed that I spelled THIEVES wrong.

Just got an email from one of the offenders and the photos have been removed. I guess I scared them with all of their personal info from their IP search. It contained names, addresses, phone #'s and ISP info.

Luckily I haven't had any of my photos stolen...but I was searching different cake shops in town last week and most of them had photos that didn't belong to them. So many different bakery watermarks on a lot of photos. It really upset me, even though they weren't my photos. icon_mad.gif

How did you do the IP search to get all that info?

Type in the website address and you can get the IP address.
Click on Whois and it will give more info.

Curious how this Google Image searches. I put a few of my pics in and they came up with nothing; even though I know that pic is on my website and/ or here on CC

Did you open up the picture rather that using a thumbnail?
Just wondering.

Just done a quick search with my confetti hearts cake & the biggest offender seems to be pinterest. Not a site I'm familiar with. What bugs me is the person who put it up credited other cakes that were found here but not mine icon_mad.gif
