Please be aware of photographic copyright when posting - when using images to illustrate articles or postings that are not your own, please before using obtain the copyright holders expressed written permission to publish their images and when doing so provide full accreditation to said person.
If a member posts an image which obviously isn't theirs and has been copied and pasted from another website, their post will be edited and the said image deleted with a follow up note to that member.
* Exception: if quoting an image from a previous post on Safaritalk, (please include the member's name with the quoted image), or highlighting an image from a member's gallery, (again, including the member's name and a link to that gallery.)
Safaritalk takes photographic copyright very seriously and I always strive to protect a photographer's intellectual property.
