Revesre Image Searching

I posted a Journal on my Home Page on this topic and I think all our members should take note of the methods described if they wish to check on their own images or are suspicious of images that they come across here.

From time to time here on DeviantArt, I come across or am told about images that may not be the work of the artist or photographer who has posted them. Sometimes, I also find that my images turns up, without attribution, elsewhere on the Web. In the first case, posting work that is not yours without attribution is morally wrong, and in some cases is illegal. In the second instance, you have been the victim of art theft.
DA has a "Report this image" button on the display page of each image. If you find a dodgy work, you can click this and follow the menu of options to report your suspicions. I have done this on several occasions for works I know to have been filched from elsewhere, and nothing appears to have been done about it  the doubtful works are still displayed. On one occasion, I tackled the perpetrator, but to no avail  I was just blocked.
Often these dodgy deviants are highlighted by vigilant members who post Journals flagging the miscreant, an

I decided to check on some of my infrared images and found several on a site Further, one of our Expert Members, helios-spada has much of his work displayed and credited to the famous American photographer - helios-spada. Needless to say, he was not aware of this accolade.

I found IR photography to be very popular on this site with hosts of shots that thought I recognised. You may wish to check for yourselves to see if any of your works are there. If you find any, let me know and I'll post a list to the site asking for credit to be given.

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 29, 2016, 6:48 AM

As some may have noticed I have been very busy with my Tanzanian Safari Journals and photographs. Also, there was only a small number of submissions for December 2015. Consequently, I let the Best of Feature ride until now, the end of January 2016.

Happy New Year and Best Wishes from The Infrared-Club (Extra-Visible Imaging) for some cracking IR photography in 2016. Here is a short personal selection of my favourites from the 2015 galleries. I have limited my choices to one per photographer, and grouped the images into (sort of) themes.

Admin Help Required


The Group has expanded considerably from a few months ago, and with the expansion has come additional work running the Group. We have many able and talented members whose contributions have been recognised by becoming Expert Members.

However, I am now looking for (experienced) members to help out at the Associate level. This is the level where development of Groups occurs as well as the main day-to-day running. Ideally, I would like someone who has some experience of CSS to help develop a house style, and/or someone who could develop affiliations.

If ANY member (including Expert Members) is interested, please note me.

Many Thanks

:wave: thanks sooo much for the request :)

Just wanted to say Goodbye as  a member of Your group. Reason(s) given at my actual journal...
Okavanga Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2015
I copy here my reply to your comment in your Journal, Volker, and repeat that I am sorry that you feel you must leave the Group.

Volker - I'm very sorry to see that you have left Infrared-Club Volker; your contributions will be sadly missed. I am a little concerned about the comment that I as "Founder" (and the Admin) have ignored your "stuff". As I recall, your work, usually many images, has featured in every monthly Best of ....Feature since I took over running the Group a few years ago. I have tried to highlight your work on several occasions, and supported and promoted particular features such as your excellent calender last year - I even bought a copy and made some suggestions for your forthcoming one. In addition, we have discussed very recently the difficulties of trying get attention for work within Groups, not just your work but everyone's. There are no easy answers to getting more attention on DA.

I hope you will reconsider that part of your Journal and acknowledge the role that :iconinfrared-club: has had in promoting your excellent photography.
