Well maybe I was misinformed about the rules of using these pictures (legal scans). I can delete everything if it is contrary to law:)

Ok, we made legal scans of 4 pages from Olga's 1916 album and my friend says he has got a permission and doesn't depart from any rule. But I personally don't contact with GARF, so I can't be 100% sure I do everything right and for the avoidance of misunderstanding I delete these pictures from the APF(((  But if you want to see them please sent me a personal message! I'll be glad to show them)

You may also post a link to where the photos are, instead of posting the photos here.  People can go over there to actually see them.

Posting the link is not only erring on the side of caution, it can also be less time-consuming for the poster rather than uploading, etc... :)

Yes, they're beautiful!

1 - Anastasia. 1913?
2 - Olga, Tatiana, Anastasia and Alexei, 1909 visit to England.
3 - Alexei, 1916. By the Dnieper?
4 - Olga, Maria and Alexei looking like they're dressed for their 1906 photos.

Those are awesome!!! Yep, along the Dnieper, near Mogilev, summer (most probably august)  of 1916.

That pic of Anastasia is the best I've seen of her in terms of capturing her spirit.

I loved the album pics of the hospital: it's so interesting to be able to look at ultra high resolution images...it's like experiencing everything afresh.

I can understand the Forum Admins position given their relationship with GARF.

Personally however I think being precious about historical photos, and copywriting them, is absolute, total, complete BS! Like written texts, photos should not be able to be copyrighted after 50 years. (And as an aside, I think Helen R is being very silly about that photo if she objects to it going online now. It's great PR for her book.)

As an example of the way things are headed, Getty Images have opened up their holdings to linking in the last few weeks.

The Romanov photo albums at Yale have been freely available to all online for years. GARF need to pull their fingers out and make their holdings equally accessible. And even then I doubt they'd serve them up in the wonderful ultra high res versions we've been treated to here.

That said, things aren't going to change over night. So I think it's excellent advice that 'problematic' photos are not embedded here, but posting links to them is surely reasonable. Sharing a link doesn't mean one was the uploader – you're simply flagging that the artefact exists online. If one sought to determine whether every online photo  was under copyright or not, there would hardly be an internet!
