Again a nice photo but
as I told you several times too small....

I do understand your sorrows but for me it is a bit exorbitant.

Speak to you soon
Cheers

Sakis

PS.You should think about it because you could "earn" a lot more here...and to be honest your excuse is for me personal a joke, sorry if I confront you with my hard fact, but such nice photos want to be seen in normal size and if possible bigger.
I support Robi at all.

Thanks for your comment and honest opinion.

Nevertheless, I must desagree. It's completely different using a 420pix file from a, say, 700pix file. From a 700pix, using a good enlarging software like genuine fractals, you can make a large print, using it for commercial uses and even for entering in some contests. I know what I'm saying because a travel agency stole one of my photos (a 700pix size one) and made big size/good quality panflet with it. They were sued and waiting for disclosure, but It's a hard and long process.

Reducing pixel count prevents that kind of use, at least more than if I give them a bigger file. I had only too choices: big file with huge watermark over the image or small image and no watermark over it. I choose the second option and added the watermark on the bottom just in case someone likes the photo and sends it to another person. It's normal and everybody does it... but I would like to know that if that person enjoyed my work that he/she can know where to see the rest of it.

I know small images sucks. I also prefer to see them bigger, offcourse. But I'm tired of unauthorized use and all the trouble it gets me into to recover my rights. Some people think that "if it is online, than I can use as I please". I know my method isn't perfect, and I apologise for it, but I have to TRY to protect my rights.

Still, I hope you can continue to enjoy my photos, eventhough they're so small. I would always like to have your honest opinion.


All the best,

Joel Santos

Hi Joel Santos

Well, I can understand your opinion and maybe I can not follow it, because I was never in that situation that someone stole my pics...

Anyway, I like all your photos and I would like to enjoy them...you know sometimes you can learn a lot from other photos....but in small size you just see the photo and can not see the technical details behond it...

That is why I confroted you so directly...

Anyway, you have to decide for yourself what the best is for you even I would like to see your photos in a bigger size:-)

Saludos
Sakis
