Shame on them... I will try to get a photoshop script for Imre, to be able to make copyright logos automatically on his photos. (do you guys know of such script?)

As I said I don't mind them using my renders at all. In fact it's good that they do because investors will then know whether their views will be blocked by a supertall or not

If they want to use pics all they have to do is ask, just an easy PM and I'll almost certainly give them renders to use

is it not allow to use the forum pics??? why not..

i found no problem if we mention their names in any forum that we use their pics on it

.. i used them .. it is strange thing i always found ppl say like that in the foreign foums ..

because we used to use any others forums pics ( the arabian one ) of course but of course we don't say they r ours ..

yes that is the main point, they put their copyrights on it, and even worse, they, in contrast to use, do it to make money.

if anybody needs this program iwatermark i will send it... its VERY good and Easy to watermark 100's of images at a time or even just one...

If you guys see any copied images, i will go to these companies myself and take care of it... if any of you truly want me to do that, i will.

I hate those types of watermarks though, they destroy the picture. Much better to do something like this where it's just barely visible but definitely there.

but then they can cut it out or colour it etc. fading whatever.

malec's version is most useful probably.

like i did for the marina map and i immediately saw it and could show the DubaiWaterfront agent when he gave it to me.
