Grizzly, no hotlinking please. Can you rehost them on a free image host and credit the source website. Hotlinking is classed as bandwidth theft
In that case, all the pictures in this thread need to be removed from all the other posters.
Flickr and ImageShack are specifically designed to allow embedding on sites - they even provide the code for you to do so.what is the difference between a hotlink to flickr of a plagiarised image
I should also add these rules were written several years ago so there's no harm in reviewing them.
Perhaps any site which permits images to be hotlinked is actually OK with it?
I don't really know how site owners consider this issue these days considering hosting costs and bandwidth, etc. aren't as big an issue as they used to be.
Yes, that's how we used to do it here.As far as i understand, any site that does, will block the image in its remote location, give a standard image asking you to go direct, or tell you when you copy the URL
