Hello!

Let me start this off by saying how outstanding it is to see what Glasgow was like before my time.  Truly amazing.  Itís great to have an idea of what peoples lives were like and they way folk lived as apposed to nowadays - my generation.  I would like to thank every one of the posters on this who have submitted endless amounts of pictures; it has really opened my eyes to life in old Glasgow.

A question I do have which I hope can be answered by all of the posters of pictures; is, I am currently involved in a project where we are looking to incorporate several of the pictures posted on here in an e-presentation; and was looking to see if I would be OK to use the photographs as, again, they are absolutely spot on for the project I am working with and hope no-one would have a problem with it.  I can confirm that the project I am involved in is based in Glasgow and would not be used for making money or anything untoward - just a project to let the people of Glasgow; not privy to this outstanding forum, see some old pictures of Glasgow to reminisce and compare these images to what we have now.  

I do hope as a fellow Glaswegian my request will be OK and can proceed with illustrating to the people of Glasgow, and perhaps others further a field, so that they can enjoy them as much as I have.

Many thanks indeed!

I suggest contacting the individual person that posted the pictures you wish to use. Some photos may not be usable depending on original source. Not everyone will see a thread like this posted and a private message would bring their attention better.
Would you be willing to credit the forum in some way?

Thanks very much Stuball for your prompt response and many thanks for your welcome to the forum.  Thatís what Iíll do - I will get in touch with those who have posted individually and seek permission.  When you ask; would you be willing to credit the forum in some way, what do you mean exactly?

Cheers.

He means exactly what he said and your understanding of it makes me dubious to your overall intentions.

The forum was where you came across the images it is down to the individual if they allow permission for use off site but would probably also stipulate
"CREDIT"
I.E original creator of image.

Forum Credit could be something like
"As Seen on WWW.Urbanglasgow.co.uk

It's not rocket science buddy and welcome along all the same....

I know that most likely the majority will disagree with me but if I take or have photos and put them online - I do so for the 'commonweal' and as such expect my photos to be used.  If someone tries to claim them as their own - well I have the original on digital media to disprove their claims.  I don't really fret about being credited or holding copyright...

If I don't want someone to use my pics, I don't post...

Anyone else feel the same way or am I in the minority?

I would say the minority but this is strictly from a personal point of view.
Wait till newspapers or magazines "Steal" one of your images see if you feel different about profit organisations lifting one of your images in the name of lazy journalism. I choose to share certain images with the "Forum" and forum members i do not expect to see them turn up on other sites claimed as other peoples or otherwise without express permission.

I have been looking back on my E-mails and found 13 requests for photographs,  on each occasion I asked for a copy of the postcard, book,leaflet ect. The only one that responded was the Citizens theatre the rest promised but never delivered as Cybers said it's lazy and cheap form of journalism.

Hah, yeah... I've lost count of those promises broken. The only one that followed through was a channel4 production company that told me when my picture will appear on TV

Stu...unless your prepared to put a watermark through the middle of your photographs they will just take it anyway knowing the chance is you will never see "their" work.
