Ummmmmm but, , , , , your links take me to your "site" but none of the photos are even close to being "clear"; so very fuzzy and "out of focus" looking.

These are all small thumbnail versions of the photos in the catalog. If you try to enlarge, will not work

Well, and so, you REALLY need to change the look of your "splash" page. When I click on a link, I want to see what I expect to see! When your page opens, all of the photos are garbage. They are not "thumbnails" and I have not tried to "enlarge" them.

Too blurry and small. I guess the big ones that cost money are good but I just had a passing interest. Good luck.

For access to high resolution versions of the photos, please subscribe. However we are working on making the thumbnails more clear to the desktop user on catalog page that is view-able for free so guys can see if they got their shot (as cell seems to display better), but at the same time we are trying to prevent photo theft, i.e. someone taking a screen shot without signing up.

Might want to provide a sample of the good photos before we subscribe so we know we're not getting burned.

Surfcaster, that is the point of the low quality thumbnails, so you can see we captured your shot. "Getting burned" works both ways. If we put out high resolution images off the bat, what keeps people from screen shot/stealing them? For now, we're going to try and improve the thumbnail quality output slightly enough so you can see its you on the wave. The subscription cost is cheap, and will be including a limited number of high resolution downloads with each signup.

Each photo posted has a correlating high resolution copy associated with it. If you look at our work online, you will see for yourself we do not put out bad work.

I would think the watermark would be enough. Until you figure out how to display your pics It just looks like a business to me. For Sale forum.

Unfortunately what you think isn't correct; watermarking images isn't enough to prevent people from stealing photos Chopola. There is a huge issue with photographers getting taken advantage of and not getting paid in the surfing industry. In the meantime however, we will change the catalog permissions so that a user doesn't have to subscribe to purchase/social share, until we fix the issue surrounding out of focus images on the thumbnails that people can see for free, and add more information as to what people get in their subscription. Thank you

Watermark the word "kook" all over the photo, not just in one of the corners. Are there software out there that removes watermarks? BTW, I follow your page on FB, great pics
