Re: Operation Photo Rescue!

The galleries at Operation Photo Rescue are regularly updated, so if you volunteer and you all the photos you look at one day are too challenging, check back in a few days, especially shortly after a copy run. There are often photos that need basic repairs.

I LOVE OPR... THE PEOPLE ARE WONDERFUL...
A PHOTO IS SIMPLY A SNAPSHOT IN TIME, A MOMENT
IT CANNOT BE RE-CAPTURED
IT CAN HOWEVER BE RE-CREATED
MUNIPULATED
TWEAKED,
TONED
, DIGITALLY DRAWN......ECT
ONCE YOU JOIN, YOU WILL FIND NO REGRET!!!

For now Im going to stay with the less controversial ones.
I have my own way of doing things and have to remember that THESE are NOT MY customers.
it is a nice thing to do and Im so sure that the people who ask for help surely appreciate it.

Re: Operation Photo Rescue!

This was from one of the Gallery owners :

Indeed I already asked the question before when I was a volunteer as well :-).
The answer is that you can use the images on your website as long as you remove all the IPTC info, rename them so the family name is not in the name and don't use them to sell your work.
Otherwise you can use them on your website :-).
----
Of course with my site, they would be used to promote what I am capable of and this was his next reply to that:
Hm, since you're also giving a price-list on your homepage, I don't think that it'd be okay to upload OPR images.
----
So I would guess the answer would be no if you were to profit by doing so. But I also dont thing it would hurt to ask the team either.

Re: Operation Photo Rescue!

I dont know a lot about OPR as I have just joined up myself so there are many others more qualified than I. But that said I had just barely asked that question to Jonas and that was the reply, he did also offer to ask the team what they thought and I didn't push it, so it still may be an option. but I don't know.

Re: Operation Photo Rescue!

I just found this thread at the OPR forums that supports my earlier statements: http://www.operationphotorescue.org/...opic,26.0.html :-).
