Your art resposted without permission

Sat Nov 22, 2014, 1:28 PM


... does not necessarily indicate that people are trying to screw with you. Most likely the problem lies in bots and spiders who crawl over deviantart and repost graphics in very strange places of the Web. Putting a disclaimer won't work, but disabling download button will. I also recommend making your art visible to members only.
It's just a thing I've recently discovered.

Add the optionable deviantART watermark so then the pic will be useless unless they buy it

Evil trap - buying things and still not to be allowed to use them.

All the more reason to sign your art, because unless they cover it. People who search for the art will still come here. That's how I find my fav artist from pic found in other sites.

Actually, disabling download button doesn't solve the problem - if you copy the image url of the picture and then paste it into a new tab, you can just drag it to your desktop from there... so it can still be copied :/ But it's good advice anyways ^^

You missed the point. The journal is about preventing automatic scripts from reposting art. Nothing can prevent real people from doing that.

You have to edit an deviation and pick desired publishing options.

I see people steal my friends art and post it on other websites or use them as profile pics for RP accounts and that just kinda steams me up cause I think you should ask an artist before use. I mean, I repost art made for my ship only if I have the artist who made it for me permission. I need to figure out how that works
