Re: Operation Photo Rescue!

Hi Kate :-),

I recognized your website!

It's an definitive I don't know, yes ;-).
However I haven't heard anyone saying that it's a definite no-go yet, but Dave said earlier that he was okay with it.
Therefore personally I remove anything from the photos that gives a hint of the real owners and upload it.
I think there was another, more clear thread about this later, but I can't seem to find it.
If I can dig it up, I'll post the link here :-).

Re: Operation Photo Rescue!

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for promoting Operation Photo Rescue. Right now we are winding down with the remaining photos from the Nashville, TN run of last year. That run netted over 1,000 photos. We are hoping to start getting some photos in from Joplin, but our big copy run there will be Oct 7-8 at the Joplin Public Library 9 am to 6 pm. We are also teaming up with Lost Photos of Joplin

One question that I would like to clarify is whether you can post your restores from OPR on your portfolio. The answer is both yes and no. If it is your personal site and not a business site, especially one that is promoting photo restoration---yes, you may, but all personal embedded information on the photo has to be removed. If you have a business website where you sell your services---no, you may not. The reason for that is that is because we are a non-profit 501 (C) 3 organization and the complications with the IRS of using a charity for free advertising. You may link to OPR and to our galleries in the forum section, but not on your business website. Sorry.

I want to say thanks to all of you that have volunteered!

I seriously cant figure out why anyone would want to have a restoration website that was NOT promoting their talents to find work, but comply I shall!
I don't know why they would either, but there is a difference of promoting your work on a website that you list prices for your services and you are soliciting business. Since we are a charity and governed by IRS rules, we can't do it. Most professionals volunteer their services to OPR out of compassion for others and not personal gain. We like to recognize everyone's efforts and that can be accomplished by submitting before/after of your restores on the OPR's Photo Gallery.

I’m sorry if your joining was to be able to post your work for a portfolio viewing, but we do not want to loose our non-profit standing. Because OPR operates solely on donations, we are actively seeking corporate sponsorships and I am learning that even that has IRS restrictions on how the sponsor is promoted at an event.

Thanks,
