Can I Build my Own Gallery/Website?

No. The reason we do not allow photographers to build their own galleries on is simple. Our software will not allow for people, other than our programmers to design the gallery areas. Another reason we do not allow photographers to design their own galleries on is to keep the gallery areas uniform and neat.

How Hard is it to Steal a Photographer's Work on the Internet?

It is not hard at all. In fact, it is EXTREMELY easy! All one needs to do to steal a photographer's image on the Internet is "right-click" with their mouse and choose "save as" in the pop-up dialog box and the image is theirs! All of the hard work that the photographer put into making the image is gone in an instant and in the hands of someone else.

Why is Image Theft on the Internet such a Big Deal?

The answer to this question is obvious. All of the photographers displaying their work on are professionals, meaning that they earn their living through the photographs they make. If some unscrupulous person steals the photographer's image on the Internet and uses it for their own purpose, then the photographer is losing revenue and the value of their hard work. At, we have taken great measures to ensure that this will not happen to our members.
