No Free Lunch

I have my concerns that the images can be taken for basically free from this site due to allowing the customers to view a full size image. I've noticed when I upload that someone from Kiez, Germany immediately views the image- like within a few minutes! And I mean every single time I upload- this worries me... :-\

Likewise, a personor a botin Kietz, Germany, immediately views my images on FAA, and also my husband's paintings there. So does a personor a botin Provo, Utah.

I suspect we have more than a few bots checking out our stuff on FAA.

If those are actual people, they must do absolutely nothing all day but go onto FAA, view the new offerings as they appear, and steal them.

Kiez is a bot as are most recorded visitors.  Since when can a visitor view a full size image?

Exactly -- the preview image is certainly big enough to abuse, but it is not the full size image.

Certainly I found watermarked (small) FAA images of mine (and others) on that porn site I've mentioned a couple of times, as well as iS (they got it removed), Flickr and many from others from SS and 123RF, etc (all watermarked).
NOT as porn, but as some sort of 'inducement'. There are pages and pages with watermarked (and other images of very random subjects (not always people) which, when you click on them, take you into the porn site.
They could, and probably do, just steal properly paid for images off purchasing sites for the same purpose, and there are plenty of non-watermarked images there too.
