Don’t steal images that have JUST gone viral and put your watermark on them. Someone’s going to figure it out.
Look in the lower left hand corner. Notice the “Digital Impressions” watermark? This was on 1/20/14.
Once she’s called out (an hour ago) she uploaded new images without her watermark.
She also posted this claiming she was simply sharing inspirational work.
Original source (same photographer for all of these images but we’ll start with the snow)
Here’s the rest of the set as she had them after she took the watermarks off (I didn’t screencap in time). Still no credit given beneath the images.
Take note of the cropping.
I kept digging because… that’s what I do. Found another. Note her watermark.
She’s been using this image to advertise her photography in various Facebook groups. Note she’s shared this from her business AND personal FB accounts.

Excuses are my favorite. Except when they are the same old song. Someone I hired did this, totally wasn’t me. Then it’s just boring. Someday I may have to collate all of the excuses into a post.
Rhonda, it’s too bad you a) put your watermark on the winter image and loaded it per the screen capture on 1/20/2014 (NOT TODAY) and b) stole a wedding photo and loaded it to your Facebook on 12/8/2013 and shared via your business AND PERSONAL accounts to advertise your weddings and offer discounts.
Oh wow it’s already deleted, she had some good comments so here’s the whole thing before she deleted it.
