Title: I came across this website but I'm wondering who on this forum colored what pics
Post by: rosieposie on September 18, 2008, 11:07:55 AM
I came across this Romanov website and the creator claims they own the original photos that is shown on the website because as they say "I am Russian and am directly relatied to the Romanovs." Obviously this person took pics from Alexander Palace Time Machine and from the forums. Claiming the so called originals belongs to their family.

Especially as the colored pics is colored by our members.

Can anyone tell me who colored what and if so to tell this person to give them credit for using their colored pics on the website?

God! They drive me crazy! On the page about Tatiana all pictures were made by me(except for the last one) and her story was copied from my site about Tatiana!
And I have two question to people who are stealing someone's work:
1. is this so hard to ask for permission first? I would probably agree and I am sure others would agree too if one would ask them for permission to use their pictures or other work.
2. is this also too hard to credit someone? really too difficult to write that this, this and that was done by...[name]?

Yes, it´s really annoying!

If they cannot create anything of their own, they can always "borrow" things. But you know, internet is a huge place and what chance do you have to find you stolen things?

as we can see there's always a chance.

Hey guys well I found the webcreator on Facebook who was bragging about being related to the IF.  So I actually put them stright and since I openly "exposed" them they haven't came back on the group.

When I do youtube videos I give credit to all people on this forum.  Or where ever I got the source from.
However it makes me upset if someone takes peoples work without giving them credit.

I also go out of my way to ask for permission on peoples work if it is from Deviant Art.

It makes my toes curl.

I believe the one of AOTMAA standing on a balcony in the winter was colored by me, but that's one of my older ones, and I'd actually prefer if it wasn't associated with me!   :-\ lol

Ah, God. Are you kidding me?!

I see a ton of mine on there. Most of the ones on the first page are mine. Good Lord. I can see she also stole the first part of my bio on Anastasia from my website for HER Anastasia page.

Ughhhh!! That makes me mad. And it takes a lot to tick me off.  >:(

Well I sent them an email on Facebook telling Madison Cook that she has been exposed for taking all those pictures and taking words from others pages.

They haven't as yet replied but found her quote on the fangroup page amusing so I share it with you.

"I added some new pictures/photos of the Romanov's. They are all one's that we have of originals. Yes some you can find online because we gave them to news places when they found the remains, but they still mean the world to our family."  (When I was looking at the pics there were two with the water mark "Alexander Palace Time Machine",  I also laughed at her caption of Nicholas with Charles the V. LMAO)

This is what she wrote for the website above.
Loyals to the Romanov's |


Check out my website i dedicated to my Russian heritage and Romanov family(ancestors).

Hey Hols,

I sent her a message but they didn't respond.  Ever since I confronted Madison Cook on the group site she hasn't come back to explain what she did.
It upsets me, because I know you guys worked hard on your written work and on the colored pics.

Ladies..i have lots of time on my hands and im looking for colored pictures in all the facebook groups about the romanovs. When i got the list finished with links and names of the people who uploaded those pics, i ll post it here.

Post colored pictures of someone else without credit and permission is ART THEF and those thiefs should be reported.

Katenka, it's so sweet of you for spending your time in this!
Thank you!
I think on Internet, people believe they could do whatever they want because no one know them! They're wrong!
If you commit a thief then you can pay for this!

You welcome, Olga! *hugs*

I know how do you all feel about this. A couple of months ago , someone took my colored (and marked) pictures  from my deviantart and posted them on livejournal, modified and without credit. The Thief was fool enough to not deleted my "mementomori" watermark!.

I have the only facebook group for OTMA the last time I checked and I'm pretty sure there are no colorized pictures on there. At least, I haven't seen any. I don't know about any other groups though.

Hey Katenka,
Thanks for looking, I agree it is a theif of taking someone's colored pictures.   Sure the originals are not ours but everyone works so damn hard on their artworks.

Okay guys the person who originated that website responded to Mandie and my comments on her guestbook.

Here is is what she wrote in her defence.  Remember this person claims to be related to the IF.

Mandie Campbell, everyone has those colored pics. okay you can find them any where. Go to google and you'll see. And Jane Doe, shows what you know. Okay i did get permission. My relatives that still live in Russia got permission for me from the directer of the Hermitae museum, which in case you do not know is made up of the Winter Palace and the Alexander Palace. The director told my relatives that i did not have to do a cretability page, just to keep their name on the pics they gave me, which are the one's that say Alexander Palace Time Machine. so you two know what, you make Me sick. accusing someone you don't even know of trying to pass someone elses things as their own without even knowing their side, or that there might be a possibility that they know someone who is a romanov decendent. think about the situation next time before you put crap like what you two wrote in someone's guestbook. ow, and smiley faces on messages is so 1st grade.

hey mandie, i found your website. yeah, i have not been there till now. i created my website back in may of 2007, and the colored photos were added then. i recieved a few of them from a girl named Holly who said i could use them on my site, so maybe she stole them from you. but i recieved those back in 2006. The others like the one with Alexei on the Standart, i recieved that from the Director of the Hermitage museum and the Alexander palace which is another part of the hermitage. you should really plan to go to russia. it is truly beutiful and when the sunset hits the winter palace just right, it takes your breath away because of how beautiful it is, and it relaxes you too.


Holly did you give her permission?

waht totally cracked me up was that she was saying that she got permission from the hermitage and crap to use those pictures...making it sound like their rare and cant be found anywhere...
and what she did with those colored pictures is straight up bullshit...sorry about the language..

kudos!

I think Madison wants to make out she knows more then us. LOL.  As if we people who have studied the IF for as long as 20 years to now didn't know that The AP and Winter Palace belongs to the hermitage. LOL.

I laughed when she started to switch topics to make it more cheery by talking about the exterior of the Winter Palace lmao.

I have been studying the Romanovs for seven years, and other Royalty for four/half years, none stop. I don't call myself a professional like this girl, it a just kind a slap in the face of people would studied then for more the twenty years. And for my own website, I use my own colored pictures and put down the facts as much I can of my own writing (which is really hard), even there not good as I hoped, but my OWN work and credit.

Post by: Holly on September 26, 2008, 05:28:33 PM
What the --- !?

Heck no. I did not give her any kind of permission for anything!

First of all, I was fourteen/fifteen in 2006. I didn't color pictures then and I'm pretty sure none of those pictures were even made in 2006. Why would I give permission to her to use someone else's pictures?? And even if I DID give her permission to use mine I definitely wouldn't have allowed her to just cut my name out of them! Not to mention she took MY writing from MY site. I don't allow that.

"So first grade"?! Is she serious?! She can't even spell! Ugh.

I shall be on the guestbook today, my dears...  >: (

I just read this more carefully this time. WTF? is she really that serious? I don't give a horse's ass if my colored pictures or Holly's, Justine's ARE ALL OVER THE WEB, they are still OURS! this is bulls--t! telling me that i make her sick, she makes me angry that she toke our colored pixs, that the sicken part. some people needed to get a life or grow up!

There's nothing you guys can do. When some jerk was selling my pictures on eBay and making money off of them, or my scans, I  couldn't get eBay to stop them and they legally should have. This is just typical internet theft. Considering it's just some dinky website, don't even worry about it. Get angry if people take your colorized photos and make a profit from them.

This person is obviously an idiot, because the black and white images are all public property regarding copyright.  However, the colorized photos are modified public property and therefore the colorizer's (I made up a word!) creative property.  Again, there's nothing you can do about it if she's not selling them.  Obviously she just took them from the website here; she's certainly not clever enough to get rid of the website title on the images, at least.  Moron.

That reminds me of the time I made this MSN display picture three years ago.
The text on it was an inside joke between me and an ex-boyfriend of mine.
When I made it, I put it on my personal website for my friends to see,
And this girl at my school popped up on MSN with it in her display box.
I got so pissed when she attempted to tell me that she found it on an MSN website
Two years before that...when I had made it a week earlier, and she claimed it wasn't mine! Argh...

It's not so hard to ask and credit someone. Apparently, these people prefer stealing works of the others.   >:(

"Ohhhhh....and where did you steal them from??? It's known that you brag about getting your photos from google. You had better read DA's terms of service and copyright policy because you are breaking their policy and rules...I cant wait til someone reports you! Seems like the kettle calling the pot black, doesnt it!"

That s  so not true!. Post  1910 pictures i got colored over my account are all bought, the rest are a mix or other site stock pictures, bought postcard and public domain pictures.

If someone wants to support me over livejournal, just ask me the link of the group and i ll send it thru pm.

This person is an idiot. That isn't true at all. I spoke to someone that works at DA and asked about the copyright stuff. They told me that if the picture is after 1922 (I forgot if it was 1920 or 1922) and everyone involved with the production of the photograph is deceased, the photograph is free range for anyone. If you post a colorized picture, you're fine as long as you state the date the photograph was taken. But, as Lanie said, if you take the picture and colorize it, then it is YOURS.

Tell this person that. And then tell them they need to read up on things before they speak to keep themselves from looking stupid. :]

Thank you both!.

Well im mi D.A account i have some pictures post 1922 recolored, but they re were purchased and scanned by me. I dont make money with them and i put a link to the original.

The strange thing of all is that this person had also posted pictures of other  Known artists like Alix of Hesse, Justine and Lisotchka with credits (Well Lisotchka had to say to her that she needed to credited her cause the first time, she didnt and post em without proper credit) but me....well..maybe she thought that i wont ever visit that comunnity  ::)

Please mark images you modify (put effort into). Colorizing is a modification. This forum has large numbers of older images from cartes de visite and post cards predating Disney. An unlabeled image of a woman in a bustle can be mistaken for an older cdv or post card. The bustle says "pre-Disney."

Copyright law is, to may awareness, now based on protecting Disney-ana such as his signature and figures such as Mickey Mouse. I suspect the 1920s start date for copyrights is the year "Steamboat Willie" with a happy mouse as the skipper of a steamboat was released by a new animator.

Considering the real issue, acknowledgment or reward for effort, colorization is effort that should be acknowledged when the effort is known.

Also, be careful before screaming thief. With the wealth of cdvs and post cards out and about on eBay, legitimate mistakes are possible.

First of all... i never told it was you the person who posted those pics over there. If i see my recolored pictures posted somewhere else with the same label i ve got post em on deviantart, without permission and credit...what should i think?.


 
Second..you told me that those pictures were posted over here. I didnt do it... so, can you please send me the link of that topic?. Cause someone posted those pictures over here without permission.

The person who did that knows exactly that those pictures  were recolored by someone else (me) and they re not the antique originals


Be more careful about posting recolored pictures if you re not sure if they re handtinted, cause, if there dont mention an artist or link...that s art thef!

We all learned a lesson...mine was ALWAYS put a watermark on them ALWAYS

I was surprised when I came across a website earlier of little Princess Elisabeth of Hesse-Darmstadt, and see the banner I made in my signature at the top of the website!  Instead of angry, I was kind of happy that they used it.  (:  I was also surprised to see pictures I haven't seen before.

I do wonder if the maker of the website is a member here.

No..that s not the solution. The solution is asking to the person who colorize the picture if that picture can be used. If it is a picture found on google ,which is clearly recolored by someone else,without credit, just DONT use it. Use the black and white one and end of the problem. That would avoid Tons of drama.

The other solution for artists are use watermarks across the recolored pics.

If AP forum becomes like this , it'd bother people.... There are many more public pictures than works, here... It would make no sense.
The solution is what Katenka said... But we have to face the truth, people doesn't care about giving credits.  :( We can't make something about it.
The best solution is to not post our works on the web.  But then, it's not really fun, I think people likes hearing opinions about their works and the appropriate place for it is here.( and some others forums too. )

Here it is  (http://lesromanov.blogspot.com/)
This person has also made others websites, each one dedicated to one of OTMA; it seems the title on the coloured pictures she posted were written with Paint..That's why I am starting wondering that's weird... These websites are also in French...

FYI: It's my understanding that Raegan Baker had NO say in nor control over the cover image on Olga's 1913 diary. (This is standard procedure in publishing.)

However, I've just spoken with Lanie and she confirmed that is her colorization, and that Gilbert's Royal Books did NOT request her permission to use it.

She's having trouble loading the AP forum today, but she's grateful to you guys for spotting her work.

I don't understand why they don't simply put the link of the forum if they found the pictures here and if they don't really know who coloured it , it would have been OK ...

I'm going to be honest with everyone. If it's online, it's going to be taken and shared. It's just the way the Internet is.
If you want credit for work done, put a HUGE watermark in the middle of your work. Yes, it looks awful with it there, but that is the only way you're going to get credit each time it's used. If you want to be contacted, you could even put your email as the watermark. I used to feel like you guys too, but I have come to realize there is no way to stop everyone from taking your coloured works. Yes it really stinks, but aside from tracking each person down and verbally beating them up (like was done to the original website owner this thread was posted about) there is really nothing that can be done.

Could someone please visit this website,     http://www.freewebs.com/empresselisabeth. I am trying to understand who Princess Alexandrovna is supposed to be. There is a page concerning her on this website. The website owner insists she is the daughter of Franz Joseph, and Elizabeth. I can find only three daughters, Sophie,Gisela, and Marie Valerie.   I think this person has other rather strange websites. Any replies will be appreciated.

is incredible how "princess alexandrovna" morphs her face thru the years xD

 http://www.freewebs.com/empresselisabeth/princessalexandrovna.htm

And..is even MORE incredible that the princess at  3 yrs old can wear those beautiful hoopskirts! xD.


The girl who made those two websites needs a HUGE info warning in the site tellling people that is just fiction

Ps: In Gisela´s page...

"This is a colored picture of Archduchess Gisela given by my friend, Gus Eigna"

Click here...she even hotlinked the image from el flickr ¬¬ (http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2313/2045137368_2c71a77387_m.jpg)

I wonder if Angie gave her permission to use that picture in her website...

Like the majority of you, I have tried to read "thenicholailafamily" site without much success.  It is, in my opinion, not even a parody!  Sometimes the most telling involvment/effect on these sites though, are the remarks in the "Guest Book."  Case in point:  In the open/public "Imperial Guestbook" of this site, a poster,"Leah," writes that, "Yes, I agree with ally and i dont understand any of it."  Fair enough, but THEN this SAME poster (using her OWN site name, "impishanastasia") posts 3 times just the opposite:  "hello there wow i love your imagine nation are you going to be writing more /?"   followed next by:  "hey glad u got my last post please write more its so interesting,"  followed next by "hey glad u got my last post please write more its so interesting and hurry up,"   and then that entry is repeated again as her last post.    ("Ally" then returns to correctly bring the postings back to realism.)  It perplexes and amuses me that the SAME poster (using 2 identities --- "Leah" and "impishanastasia" ----in the "Imperial Guestbook" of this site, can be creditable in her comments with such inconsistencies.  "Padding" the comments section of the Imperial Guestbook"?    AP

I'm really tried of people taking my and other people's colored photos and b&w photos without permission. and The "Princess Alexandrovna" complete bull.. lol  *rolling eyes*

So I'm no longer coloring or posting photos of royalty ever again! and I really mean it.  
My website Romanovs of Russia, is rarely up dated anyway and  So I'll possible going to leave it as it is now.

 I kinda lost passion for the Romanovs and royalty and really invoid in the new rock band i like (in banner the band and I) and other music. the Romanovs would always be a part of my heart and past. I started reading about other royal houses of the Europe, like of the houses of Greece, Austria, Germany, Romania, Spain, England, France etc..but not as passionate as I was into Russia and the Romanovs.

It funny, when I was reading a memoir of Prince Christoper of Greece, my sister said to me:"Oh, your cheating on Russia now?" lol. I thought that was funny.

I am the same as you tom my interests change.  The Imperial family will always have a place in my heart.  I have enjoyed learning about them for 11 years.  However periods of time for me change.  I'm back into Ancient Greek history.  The holocaust etc.

I will occasionally come back to the IF.  However it's just something that is just a hobby.

Guys, a lot of people may not be stealing them on purpose. They could just search "Olga Romanov" on Google images, and hundreds of photos, colored ones included, pop up. They just save them and use them later, not knowing where they came from.

I think that's not that the problem, the problem is that some of them, though they are told to credit, doesn't want to and act rudely to those kind of requests. And even make fun of you.
I understand the fact that they find, like and use them but at least if they are told/ asked to credit, they should simply do it and not to create any useless arguments.

That isn't an excuse!
they should atleast credit the source. i know its an easy mistake to make, but it is not a matter of laziness, its a matter of what is right. That is not their property to use.

I honestly don't care if people use my images, as long as they don't alter them, then claim them later. Just give the source and the person and i'll be happy.

are not colored in photoshop , but they are original colored photos from the begining of XX century .
I wrote that the members of Alexanderpalace forum  are coloring photos of Imperial Family  already for many years .

They didn't wanted this information became known by another members of their site and immediately deleted it !
But I wrote the letter to   Administrators of this site  that   they should be ashamed for their behavior.

Don't be ashamed. There are shameless people everywhere, unfortunately. Anyway, at least, you did what you thought you had to do. :)

I have question who coloured those two photos because i saw them on TV in one show called "clairvoyants" "Ясновидци" ...it's interesting for me because you can't use just like that coloured photos....

(http://i618.photobucket.com/albums/tt261/Grande_DuchesseOlga/th_anastasia-2.jpg) (http://i618.photobucket.com/albums/tt261/Grande_DuchesseOlga/anastasia-2.jpg) (http://i618.photobucket.com/albums/tt261/Grande_DuchesseOlga/th_drt7ytgf.jpg) (http://i618.photobucket.com/albums/tt261/Grande_DuchesseOlga/drt7ytgf.jpg)

I took them down from the screen of that show but i tryed to give link of the video in the official site but it's broken....all i can do is to say in the comments there that it's  not good to do so..... or if someone wants i will write to the moderators.....hope someone tell me soon what to do and who are the authors thanks

I think the second one is Ally's. I'm not sure though.
The first one is one commonly seen on Google. Don't have any idea whose colouring it is.

I don't know either but it's bit selfish to use it... they had recognize how Anastasia died and does Anne Anderson was Anastasia....all of them said they have not blood common (none of them knew about The Romanov's)

The second one is mine. You can see the whole picture on my DA account here: http://velkokneznamaria.deviantart.com/art/Dressed-as-nurses-111994515

Don´t know if I should be angry or flattered....

I don´t know who coloured the Anastasia one though...

A question to all the colorizers of the forum: have you found your work modified, with the watermark removed and other person telling it is his/ her work?


Happened to me today and im still shocked and what it shocks me the most is that is someone i know.


I feel awful =(

Title: Re: I came across this website but I'm wondering who on this forum colored what pics
Post by: Tatiana Z on June 30, 2009, 01:55:50 AM
Katya !
I   asked You  in private message on My site to  tell  Me  what photos are You talking about  , that they are  colored by You .
But  You did n't  answer Me  on My site .
Instead of that   You put a post in  the Forum  " Alexander Palace  " , where You  you accuse Me , that  I  marked Your  colored photos  with my mark .
 I think that we had to discuss this question  in private  form  , may be You are mistaking ,
but You decided  to  make this problen  public .
I  again answrer You , that   I don't  remember  where I'v found Your  modified  photo with Your watermark .
You even can't imagine how  many sites in Russia , where We can find our colored photos .
Not all of them You can find  , a lot of them are special , only  for Russians .
And  I  changed  that photo to the original , as You asked .

And about colorising  Your photos  :
You didn't  tell Me  , what  Your  photos You find on My site  with My  mark , so  I don't know  what We are talking about .
I  can colorise  photos myself  and don't need to put  My  mark on  photos , which  were colorised by You .
If You once colorised  some photo , it does n't mean  that somebody  else  can't   colorise  the same  photo  .
Each of us  have colorised  the same  photos  , and  this are different colorisings .
I'm sorry that this problem made You  so sad  .
But  may be You are mistaking in  accusing Me .
 I do not steal other people's work .

I see nothing strange .
I have thousands photos in my computer and many versions  of different photos , colored and B&W , with watermarks and without them .
I don't know which of them I colorise , but I colorise only B&W photos .
And B&W photos  must not have any watermark. They  are not a property of some person.
I simply take B&W  photo and colorise it .
 I  can't colorise photo with someones watermark , what for ?
And  I put My mark only on My works.

And  You can see that My colored photos  are absolutely  different from Yours .

I always  posted  photos  , scanned by Me and never put any watermarks on them .
I never prohibited to use My B&W  photos  to anybody.

Some time ago I asked   everybody to give Me a permision to post  their  colored photos on My site and to use sometimes in My films .
Nobody refused .
I can't delete some of them from My films , but I'll remove them from My sites .

And so , I say Goog bye to  everybody .
From this day I'll never post My colored pictures on this  fotum .

And again,.,you accused yourself since i didnt call any name

You  posted the problem  on the forum instead of  answering Me  on My site .
You suppose that I had to wait  untill You  called My name Yourself  on the Forum  or in  Private Messages  to everybody ?

No ! I'm not a coward ! And  I dont  think  that I'm  guilty .
You found something  from Your watermark on  My colorising ..
And what  it means ?  That B&W photo  which I colorised had this  " something "  , no more  !
I didn't take Your colored photo and put My watermark over  Your  , using Your colorising ,
as  You  are  telling everybody  on the Forum  and in PM  .
I colorised  B&W photo   ( with Your  " something "  on it ) myself  and didn't use  Your  " wonderfull "  colorising .
My  pictures are much better  than Yours  , isn't them ?
What for  shall I use  Your  colorising ?

Our  pictures  very often looks  alike  because  we know  what colors  we must use  when coloring  uniforms .
And We can't use   green or  blue  if the uniform  must be  , for example , white .
The color of the skin is also  not red or  green.
So , if someboby is using in colorising the same colors , You will think that they used Your  colorising ?
This is stupid !

And another problem  :  If You post Your works  on some sites  or forums  , You must be ready ,
that a lot of people  can  download Your  works  and nobody will ask Your permission  to use them .
It's internet !
 If You don't understand it , it'll be  better  to  post Your works  in Yours  closed  albums  and  watch them  alone !
Oh !It' so  fun , all this closed  albums , like a games of little girls with their small secrets !

I find My pictures everywhere  ,posted  by other people , on  many sites , and  I don't surprise at all , it's internet .
I color My  pictures for everybody . And everybody can  use them.
I give My scanned  photos   to everyody and never  mark them .
You can take My colored photo , make it B&W , delete My mark and make Your  own colorising  and put Your mark on it .
It'll be Your work.
And I 'll  never even think to say that You use My colorising , because it's Your colorising .
What a problem !?

But You made a problem for Me  and made My further work in colorising photos impossible on this Forum.

What was the reason for Me to remove  Your watermark , if I had  versions withought Your watermark ?

I chose this version  by chance , I could colorise another version withought spelling a lot of time removing Your watermark .

And the same is with all My colored  photos of Nicholas II Withought Your watermaks !

Thank you , Elisabeth  , but You have no reason to apologise , nothing for !
The reason for I posted all this photos only to show  everybody , that I don't put My  mark over  Katya's colorisings .
I have a large collection of photos , may be the largest , and there are so many versions of the same photos .
And each of us likes to colorise photos themself , I don't understand what is the reason for any of us  
to take somebody's colorising instead of  getting  pleasure  of   self-colorising  .

Thank you Justine

And yes Tanya you are right.... Coloring is for pleasure and for me is great pleasure to see different versions of a photos....But when we are speaking about uniforms i agree with you that when it's blue (and we know it by information) we can put green for example but it won't be the same....Also i think we are all trying to be closer to the truth....Like we know the colour of hair and eyes...it wouldn't set well again for example Alix to be with dark brown hair and green eyes....

And i'm greatly happy that you share your b&w version with us....indeed i've seen couple of rare ones posted by you.

This is NOT the black and white version of my colorized picture, it is your version turned b&W

This is the B&W verson of mine, the one you supposedly found (see they re complety different

(http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3598/3682051736_15b38acbd3_o.jpg)

anyways, if you find a picture in black and white with the notorious mark of another colorizer you SHOULD use to avoid "misunderstoods". You know well if you want a b&W version of a picture, you can ask for it here. We got an special topic for request like that (or ask for the B&W version of the one who colorized, as Irina did a few days ago with this very same picture)

Besides the similarities in colors (like the medal sashs, background and etc etc) you SHOULDNT edit other people s work like you did with the one of nicky as hussar, the one of nicky on the horse and another one of Nicky s profile (those displayed on your gallery). That s disrespectful.

As i told you in th PM i sent you, you re a great colorist , that why i didnt understand why you did that (and why you edited my notoriously marked pics).

End of the discussion. If someone has doubts about what im saying, i ll send the info via PM. This whole topic really pisses me off cause, i know im not a great colorist as Ally, justine and others, but i like what i do

I never edit Your works . If I want , I make My own colorising , it's much better than edit Your  works . 
If I posted somewhere Your photos edited by someone , with Your mark , it doesn't mean that I edited Your work .
May be somebody of thousands people using internet found this picture and tryed to do it better ?

And   again  I tell You , if You colorised some photo it does not mean that nobody can colorise it withought Your permission .
I have My own B&W photos  and I'll never ask Your permission to color photos , which I have on My computer .

Post by: Carolath Habsburg on July 02, 2009, 02:30:25 PM
oh god. Of course B&W pictures  are free to use, no one is saying other thing., What it piss me off is found my pictures edited with oh coincidence! the same edition you give to your own creation.



No one is saying you cant colorize pictures, i ve seen your work and its awesome, but, can you explain why all those pictures  were in YOUR galleries?. Why if you ask to another colorist over here to put their pictures in your videos WHY YOU DIDNT ASK ME to put my watermarked work in your webpage?. Come one! we re members of the same forum and we post colorized pictures in the same place. I knmow that "Faces from the past" is GD Ally, I know that Justine is Alix of Hesse (justine over here" i know that TZ its you. Why you posted those pictures and you didnt ask me (or just tell me)  and you ask another to put those colored pictures in yout video?

That s one thing

another thing of the "something" of my watermark, dont put it between "" because ITS part of my watermark on it!

Your version (beautiful edition by the way)

(http://s53.radikal.ru/i141/0903/d3/518372366d98t.jpg)

"Some of my mark"

(http://i39.tinypic.com/ivlbhc.jpg)


The one done by me (not the best i ve done...)

Where is placed the watermark

(http://i42.tinypic.com/2s97pfk.jpg)


And again...You said this was my colorized picture in B&W with  "some of my mark" removed?

(http://s59.radikal.ru/i163/0907/a4/cc03a49e2a79.jpg)

Well...no!. This is the B&W version of my colorized one

(http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3598/3682051736_15b38acbd3_o.jpg)

(and if someone wants to do the try changing my version to B&W, here s the version. If you ppl have any doubt, try to become B&W Tatiana s version)

http://fc08.deviantart.com/fs37/f/2008/284/d/6/d648fb8826b7d13e541931b25e4cd08d.jpg

PS: i wonder why you used the one with "some of my mark removed" instead the full version you posted. That one its much much better than the one i used!





Too much coincidence , dont you think?. I stand by my words and if i saw in any way CONCRETE proofs of what im saying its wrong, i ll be the first in ask you in open forum, apologies, cause i accept my mistakes. I dont need to hide behind a shield of lies.

That happens because you re pretty good colorizing. Remember when in a russian website people thought that your colored pics were Prokudin-Gorskii`s ones xD.

Well...at least they re not selling them . When the page opened i thought they were selling prints of your work. You should contact the girl and lettinmg her know that s your work or do the same thing i do..put HUGE watermarks across. Its not nice but prevents people of delete then, steal your job and even modify them ;-) .

Im saying just in case. Plus, happens that if someone finds a  nice colorized pictuire withput watermark, this person can use it for profit.

Look what happened to Lanie a few years ago

Art Thief selling colored pictures taken from here on ebay (http://forum.alexanderpalace.org/index.php?topic=7493.0)



Thats why colorizers should protect their work with watermarks, always.

I´m not really angry with this girl, as long as she doesn´t claim the image for her own ar tries to sell it :) I used to be a bit more touchy, but I grew tired, because I´ve been finding tons of my images copied and used.....

Katenka - you are absolutely right about watermarks! I used to have tine little "romanovy" in the right bottom corner, but now I have quite significant "Faces of the past" usually in the middle of the image!

Im so sorry this happened to you. I know how does it feel and the only advice i can give to you is send her a message threating her to denounce her if she keeps ripping your work. Also, i assume this is a little girl with much time in her hands to retouch your work so you could talk to her about copyright to scare her a bit.

The baddest thing of all this is that she s selling prints of "her works"

This sucks, for real =(

Thank you for the link Katenka! I´ll probably register there and if she doesn´t explain herself, I´ll make this public.

i threaten her to denounce her in the communiuty. If she s intelligent (i doubt it since she favorited your work and then ripped them) she will take off all the stuff she didnt colorize

She didn't even bother to remove your watermark?  Wow, that's just sad.  She had already taken the Olga pic down by the time I went on deviantart today, but I did see the one of Maria and Anastasia.  I'm JelloHorse on deviantart, by the way, and as you know, one of your biggest fans.  I'm really sorry that happened to you...

HAHAHAHA!! she got scared with the comments we left.

Ally, why you didnt say  anything to her about Anastasia & maria`s picture?. That s obviously a wishy washy  poorly edited version of yours. She even cropped it to get rid of the mark ¬¬

Well..in the beggining i thought that too but, reading her replies, i realised this girl is dumb as a door.



Send her a message telling her that you know all of her pictures where colorized by you and if she didnt take em all off of her site, you will denounce her to deviantart staff.

If she got cared with the replies in Olga s picture, she will get even more scared when he read your message.

she s not just taking your work, modifying it and putting them on display..she s also selling them and that s uber wrong.

I used had a look at the site and I found pictures coloured by both Ally and TatianaZ. Have a look in the Persons-section. There you will find a bunch of pictures coloured by Ally.

Well i believe some people are using Alena's coloured photos because they don't have a way to ask her for this permission and same goes for Tatiana.It's indeed bad to do this.... Sorry to hear it's still happening....

Please, don´t call me that. I don´t like my name.

I´m aware that people can find the picture and have no clue about who coloured it. I accept that. But if they are honest, they should credit the person when they find out.

I agree with you Ally and i apologize just wrote it without thinking

I'm on opinion that they should not use it if they don't know who which coloured it or write something to tell it's not his/her own

So, wait and see.
That's strange because that site is very well done. I'm sure people such good at making beautiful things like that know about copyright .... = /

Honestly looks like it is painted by someone who is a moderate at paintshop-pro.   No offense to the person who colored it.  I think I will contact this seller as I'm very certain he took this picture from AP.

Just sent the person a message saying they took it from AP.   Just not right in my opinion to flog it off and wanting $13 for it wtf.

OMG just saw it has a watermark of Romanov.  How stupid is this seller?

I got a response,  he said he respected the czar and family and he got the photo from a friend who was a collector.   ::)  Then he asked if I would contact the person or find out who did it so they could get permission to sell.  

Uh so so sad and yes Katenka I agree with you that there is some silly Romanov fans out there that would snap it up.
