    It is posible that someone also sold him rights to that picture.

    Here's something you can do. Instead of complaining about the use of pictures of work you didn't do (legal or not, you are still misrepresenting your work) try using pictures of your own work. Your fellow members here at Lawnsite would get upset if your images were ripped off.

    you know there are ways to lock pics on your website so that when someone "right-clicks" on the image it tells them that this is "write-protected" and will not allow them to capture the image. Check with your webmaster for details.

    Just a thought!

    HE DID NOT TAKE YOUR PIC! That picture is available on many web template sites. Do a search in yahoo or google for lawn care web template or something similar and you will see them for sale with same pic for $20. Bit different though if you actually took that photo of your own work.

    Man, you beat me to it!:) If you do that though, you have to put watermarks on photos also, becasue that "Prt Scrn" button on the keyboard, ya'll know what that does? Press it sometime. It takes a "picture" of everything on your computer screen. Then you can go into some image editing program, and click PASTE, and walaah! you have whatever you saw on your computer screen, now in a editable picture format. So, all you would have to do is crop down to the "locked-out" photo, and then save it. Theres other ways around that garbage too, so you either have to take as many precautions as you can, or just pray hard no one will take any pics.

    Well it's nice to know your aware of a technique to capture images, in which there are many ways to do this. However, posting ways to capture/steal images was not the idea here. Illustrating exactly how to illegally capture images from the web is not exactly a good idea. Explaining to those who would like to steal photos doesn't exactly help matters.The print screen function has been around for years and is functionally well designed for people who have the abilities to edit images. Most thieves will not have the knowledge to do this so lets tell them how. These guys work hard to keep there website unique to there own liking.

    Well said. It's just about impossible to fool thieves with anything. The print screen key is actually pretty common knowledge, anyway.
