⚡️ LIVE LISTING A PAINTING

  1. dear list,
    I've been live listing for about a year, and I'm thrilled you've made it easier but the way photo downloads are now allowed puts my work at risk. I didn't share photos of my work so it could be used or reposted without permission but that's what image downloading enables. I've written to you about this several times and have been ignored. i feel unsafe here, and I hope you can address this instead of ignoring me and the other visual artists who add dimension to this community.
  2. please respect your community and allow users to decide whether or not they want image downloads.
    my guess is many people would not be comfortable with this if they actually stop to think about the repercussions.
  3. is there a reason this issue is being ignored?
    is it that you see no value to my contributions or think the artists of this app are so replaceable? or that we should be watermarking everything in preparation for this violation?
  4. until this is addressed, I can't make these lists anymore.
    it's such an affront to visual artists on list who bring their work and perspective to this app only to have it treated like it's not worthy of authorship or ownership. it's unsafe and rude. they don't allow one click list downloads to your notes app without attribution, or for you to download the lists you yourself have written —— why would they allow this to happen with images??????
