*HippysThemes* Shared Themes by Hippy & Friends...(HUGS INN !!!)
Like Angella said I state that i did not create all the images but give credit to whom ever did make them if i know whom they were and all i ever state on sites that i post my creations on, I state that I only claim my creation as a whole/theme but again i give credit where credit is due, the only thing i dont agree on is someone taking an image that someone created as a whole and putting their name over the name of the persons name that is on the image when you can clearly see what they did and that person tells everyone they can do what ever they want to an image even tho they knew it was not their creation, So In turn I believe the person whom had their image altered this way has every right to be upset, but yes it is true that we can not truly have a copywrite on our creations but as a whole when it is finished and we worked hard on some of them I would be pissed as well if this happened to mine I dont care what anyone says even tho i didnt create everything that went into my creations, it is still disheartening to see someone cover up the name of who created it as a whole with their name, But we have a right to put our name on our creations as a whole and if someone thinks otherwise oh well, just my opinion
My creations are made with English and French tutorials. I start with a transparent background and step by step, follow the tutorial. Others are created without tutorials, they are my own. I am Portuguese and with some difficulty I translate the tutorial. (I only know in English and French). Me to create an image, I'm hours until it's over. The only thing I'm looking for on the net are png images (decorations, landscape and people). But the background is all created by me. And I sign my pictures. I do not care that people catch and do ning themes. I only get sad, when after so long creating an image, someone puts his name over mine. But it is not these people who will make me stop sharing my work. I will always share. What happened to my images, I already talked to the person. I know that sharing our work on the net, anyone can take it. And what are we going to do? I do not do anything. If I find out who it was, I talk to the person. If you don't know who it was, I forget and I keep creating and sharing. Sorry for my english, it's bad.
My creations are made in photoshop and Corel paint shop pro.
Snow Wolf's comment is very good for what I understand about images.
I also use component parts from other authors and keep the source even in the name of the image itself.
It is hard work to make a good image with excellent quality.
I know about Livita's work.
She has great taste, researches a lot and uses the technique of the tutorials very well.
It is unfortunate to see a crude forgery.
With me this has already happened on another site.
It's unpleasant, believe me.
I also know your work for a long time. And I know the difficulties and work you have in creating an image. And it's very sad, after this work, someone take your picture and write the name over yours.
Sorry other people take credit for some thing they do not do,
this is why most of my creations, editing, and crops I do and share.
I never sign them and many took days to complete,
but knowing other's will also use them and when I see my work in other ways it just makes me happy they were good enough for others to use them how ever in something new to share for all to enjoy...
Thank all of you for sharing here for all to enjoy when time permits...
Healthy Hippy Hugs to all...
Yes. I agree. If they take our images is because they liked it. And that's good..
I think there is no need to talk about this anymore.
Let's create and share.
