I have no problem posting images which are trimmed from a schematic or boardview to focus on an area of the given dialog. Then there is the case of altering the image with additional details which then could invalidate the copyright
In this case I used an image which I had gotten from the internet which was already trimmed (unknowingly) I didn’t alter it as there was no point for me to do so. It was labeled just the same and that should have been left on the image!
The person who complained failed to express what was acceptable nor offer the better image. Scolding someone and not correcting them doesn’t set them on the correct direction. If he had dropped the image he wanted us to use I would have fixed it, he didn’t do that.
FYI - All my images I sell are marked with my name and properly marked with a both a visible copyright marking '''©''' and image number as well as watermarked. I’ve had my work used in American Express ad years ago and they own the rights to the images

I have no problem posting images which are trimmed from a schematic or boardview to focus on an area of the given dialog. Then there is the case of altering the image with additional details.

In this case I used an image which I had gotten from the internet which was already trimmed (unknowingly) I didn’t alter it as there was no point for me to do so. It was labeled just the same and that should have been left on the image!

The person who complained failed to express what was acceptable nor offer the better image. Scolding someone and not correcting them doesn’t set them on the correct direction.  If he had dropped the image he wanted us to use I would have fixed it, he didn’t do that.
