How to Avoid Hotlinking!

1. USE A SHARE CODE

If an image has an embed code providied it means you are allowed to link to it, if not...

2. LOAD THE IMAGE TO A HOSTING SITE

Find a stock photo, public domain or Creative Commons image or graphic
and upload it to an image hosting site that provides embed links for sharing on other sites, you can often do this directly from other sites if not download the image to your computer before uploading it. One good exmplle of such a site is imgur.com

3. LOAD THE IMAGE TO COLOURLOVERS

OR even better upload the image to ColourLovers via Photocopa (just select CREATE A PALETTE and choose FROM A PHOTO
) so that the image is hosted here on site and then link to that. This image will also then be available in the Photocopa gallery for anyone here to use and you can use the IRL from the image for posting with your palette.

4. USING AN IMAGE ON COLOURLOVERS

To grab the image URL for an image hosted on ColourLovers click through from the thumbnail shown on the palette page to acess the larger version on the image page.

5. FINDING AN IMAGE PAGE ON COLOURLOVERS

If you are not using Photocopa to make your palette you can still load it to ColourLovers and grab the URL for posting - just find the image you have uploaded in the gallery and load it to Photocopa to grab the image ID code shown in the URL, you can then go into any image page and type over the image ID in the URL to go straight to the image you want.

A Photocopa image URL will look like the example shown below, the image ID for this example is 451040

Why is it a problem?

1. IT'S THEFT

Imagine you went round to your neighbours house and found a bunch of people watching pay for view TV that had been jacked from your cable feed so you were paying for it, now inagine that was going on in every other house on your street and thousands where watching it on your dime, then keep on imagining a bigger number and... well you get the idea.

2. IT MAKES A MESS

The image you have linked to may be deleted from the site at a later date or the link to it blocked (see above re theft)



Here are some examples from earlier APC challenges but you can find similar examples all over the site.

4. MALWARE ALERTS

If the image you have linked to becomes infected by malware you risk infecting this site too and internet security programes may block and quarantine any page your hotlink appears on, this may effect individual users or COLOURLOVERS security may block off that entire part of the site from everyone on here unless the link is removed (and believe me, I've been there and done that!)



NOTICE: We have had a malware alert blocking access to all pages where a certain hotlinked image was used.

MALWARE_ALERT!
