Doing image reverse lookup, I found the portfolio of this guy contains two fractals that I created, he simply recolored them and offers them on sale.  Looking at his stuff, he travelled the whole planet...

Will report it again and I hope this time it will be taken down...

The Tinyeye results reveals that many others - or the same person under different names - made different copies...

Not only that, but he's traveling the whole planet carrying a full load of camera gear, from ultra-wide lenses to 500mm and longer bird lenses.

Must be quite an impressive specimen to be able to lug all that stuff everywhere he goes!  :(

I found a second Adobe account that offers a different version:

-Any experience with a similar issue with Adobe or advice? 

I file is also on many Pinterest and Zazzle stores.  Sad I never sold a copy myself. 


**If you find some of your work on these ports, please include info on this thread.

Now this dude seems to be hauling gear ranging from macro to telephoto primes, shooting everything from peacocks to dump trucks. Remarkably versatile, it seems.

Indeed, and in addition to his talent with graphics.  If its the same guy, you can buy his books: https://www.blurb.co.uk/user/jobe451

Interesting...
Image of dunes with different background skies are very poor to my standards. I mean the images don't even respect the light at all. it seems like a copy+paste of 2 images in one. This guy have skills... but probably not related all to photography. ;D

Found two more portfolios on Adobe with my same fractal.  And dozens of Pinterest and Zazzle sites.  The file is in my portfolio on Adobe and Alamy.  I found pirated copies on Adobe but not Alamy.  I reported the info to both agencies.

I've seen that image around a lot in various guises, this tutorial such as it is may explain it.

Hi!
This fractal that you claim is The Mandelbrot set fractal. It's called "The thumb print of God" and it was not invented but discovered (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mandelbrot_set)
In other words... fractal geometry.

Don't get me wrong but your work is based on a zoom magnification picture of a well known fractal shape called Mandelbrot. Not only is it easy to copycat the idea as i think the picture itself is from Mandelbrot loop with a circle in a middle to cover the continuity of the shape being formed.

Can someone claim copyright of that? i doubt.
Maybe if you produce a unique shape and not the actual spin. Which is originally made by Mandelbrot shape itself when an infinite loop of the fractal is mathematically performed.

You can find what i am talking about exactly in Art of Code here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6avJHaC3C2U  ( time: (15:42 to 16:45) )

You had me worried there for a moment.

Using simple tools that came with your program will produce the same image that others using the same tool produce.

Parallel development happens all the time.  Put more thought into your graphics, and that won't happen.

I see nothing remarkable about this low quality portfolio.  Thieves usually pick better work to steal.

Just because someone gets around doesn't mean they are cheating.  Take a look at my portfolio, and see if you can guess what gear I use, and how much I travel.  https://stock.adobe.com/contributor/86133/Darla%20Hallmark
