Found my photos listed for free download and FotoMoto was listed as the source!!!

I have found my photos on a website called pixmule.com for FREE download! They listed the source as FotoMoto! Not really happy! Deleting all my photos!!! Why in the hell would someone want to buy a photo from here when they can download it for FREE!!!

    Teresa,

    We do not keep a copy of anyone's pictures, they are all on your own site. Can you send us more information about this? We will follow up with Pixmule.

    Hi Teresa,

    Please do email us with the specifics about where you're seeing this issue...I'm happy to take a look at this personally to see what's happening.

    Let me also address your question about why someone would want to sell downloads - people typically put low resolution (often watermarked) images on their website. Most customers will want to buy/license an image to print or share, which would be a different version of the image than the one you post on your site. It's this higher quality version of the image that you would sell via Fotomoto as a download, and presumably not post publicly so that people can grab it for free.

    I hope that helps clarify and kind regards,
    Derek
