If people are stealing your photos and using them without your permission on FB you really should report it, even if you don't mind that much. As Jane said, there are a couple of sites that do this routinely, and unless everyone reports them they're just going to keep getting away with it. America's Funniest German Shepherds used a picture of Halo without my permission TWICE, and they added a dumb caption to it as well as their initials as a logo! I reported them both times and it was removed, as well as the hundreds of shares it had gotten. I don't mind if one of my FB friends shares a picture I posted because it shows as being shared from my FB page and has my name on it, but some page posting my pictures without my permission, with no photo credit to me is completely different.
That California rescue that Jane mentioned used a picture of Keefer to promote some upcoming event on their FB page, and they were snotty when I asked them to take it off, so I reported them. What's ironic is that he's not a rescue, I bought him from a breeder, lol.

I have a couple sites that use my photography, there is one that's promoting an event to support some dog causes. But all those people have asked. I even got a phone call from one organization! I think some people send their photos to be captioned without any credit because they have no use for the photo, it's just for fun. I have done that before as well and I had no problem with someone altering it. I only have a problem when my credit is intentionally removed when I did want it there. this is all good experience and learning.
Oisin's Aoire, thank you!

I think I read somewhere on that age that people can send in pictures for her to add wording to. I don't ever recall, however, seeing the original owners information on any, just hers. Then again, I've never thought to look closely.

|onyx'girl||The GSDC page is promoting that person's fb page and website(it is her own photo, promoting her own site)...and then look at that fb page....it is the one I was questioning about the captioned photo's. I think she must have permission to use what she does, but where does she get them?|

I've noticed this a few times. For instance, I originally saw this photo on this site and I don't know if the owner of the photo runs the linked site, but it just seemed odd:

|onyx'girl||There is a fb page that posts photo's with captions almost every day. I wonder where the person gets all these different photo's, and if she captions them herself,she's not a photographer.|

Sorry that happened. I am a photographer and unfortunately it happens a lot . There are ups and downs of the web :/
I liked your FB page though !

Credit or not, people should not be stealing images/photos, etc. It is illegal, period. If they did not receive permission from you, no go.
And cropping it to deflect/change it takes it one more step - they KNOW it was stealing and are trying to change it.
Tacky and low level.

I would definitely be upset. I'm part of a local group on FB for GSD owners that's goal was to meet up and network (group sucked nothing happened). I answered someone's question one day and noticed "I" responded with advice I didn't agree with (I just looked at the avatar picture not the name of who gave advice). The stupid group owner/admin actually took MY picture of Jinx that I have for my picture on FB and made it her FB picture also. Who the heck does that? What's worse is she did have her dogs (or I assumed they were hers) then made her pic the same as mine and it was my dog. We all live in the same city and that was way too crazy for me so I wasn't too nice when I publicly demanded she change her picture and never use any of my pictures. I've seen a number of people that just take pics one of the local photographers had her picture stolen and watermark removed by another photographer who then posted her picture on his website and tried to pass it off as his own work. Just insanity.
