Default What A Surprise

My son and I were on Flicker trying to figure out how to work the site. I haven't spent enough time on Flicker and there is lots the site can do if one takes the time to learn. I'm a little behind the curve on Flicker.
Anyway while trying to see if someone could find me by using only my real name or screen name we found something unexpected. There was a picture of mine that came up but not one I posted and not in my Flicker account. The picture was posted by someone else though they did give credit for the photo to me. Still took us by surprise and made me wonder if there is some social aspect to Flicker I'm missing? I have enough trouble keeping up with standard type forums.

Flickr doesn't permit members to post images that aren't theirs. You can report it to Flickr, but you'll have to prove it's yours before they'll do anything.

The way the credit was given to me as the photographer I don't think they meant any harm or ill intent. So for me there is no reason to enter a report to Flicker. Besides if I read what was found right the re-poster came from this forum. I just took it as a complement though still taken by surprise.

Wife did suggest that we learn how to water mark photos, at least the special ones which are far and few between shots.

Well better get back to my Flicker learning homework.

G'day mate

Watermarking ... I have a PDF from my training stuff that shows the easy way to watermark images.
If you'd (or anyone else here) like to PM me with an email address, I will bounce you the PDF for you to have some fun with
