Nothing like getting Blinglighted, craiglisted or ebay'd. Happened to me a while back. My car was for sale and I didn't even know it. I contacted the seller and had them remove the pic.

You'd think they'd learn by now after having so many complaints that start with photos they got from this site.

Wow! I don't come on here for one day and I miss all this ! Big thanks to Tim for getting the picture removed !Big thanks to VforVIBE for posting this and yes, I have Silver Stars in the fog lights and low and high beams. There's no way in hell I would ever put anything called "Bling Lights" on my Vibe .I am not surprised. I had the same thing happen with my Sunfire Sedan, although that guy refused to take the picture down. It honestly doesn't bother me that much. I do post the pictures in multiple places online, so that's the risk I take I guess.How do I go about watermarking my pictures?

Quote, originally posted by J_TO_ENVY »How do I go about watermarking my pictures?it's as simple as putting your screen name in one of the corners, or if you use photoshop, you can type out your screen name and (I'd put it right in the middle of the picture) and changing the transparency to like 10%.

You can watermark your pics in Photoshop. If you're like me and don't have photoshop, Paint has a text tool, though it's not very big text. Done with Photoshop (when I had it)Done with "Paint" Text Tool (it's all I have now, but it's better than nothing)

I know what watermarking is, I just wasn't sure how to do it. I will have to sit down and give it a go this weekend. Thanks for the help ladies !

picasa also has the option for watermarks in bulk. you can export a group of photos and have them all watermarked so you dont have to do it individualy.

I actually created a Flickr account last night and sent BlingLights a polite message asking them to remove the pictures of my vehicle from Flickr and any other site they have them on. We'll see if I get any sort of response...

I really don't care too much about it. That's the risk you take when posting anything online. The only part that makes me mad is that I don't have their crappy product/s on my Vibe.
