Tumblr made the reblog/like/share button for a reason, USE IT! If you see something you like, utilize the buttons provided here for you. Don’t think “omg I’ve gotta post this! I’ll just put credit to the owner” this doesn’t benefit the owner in any way. I’m often quiet about this but I’ve seen it happening too much and i’m annoyed. I’ve seen a lot of my friends work get reposted and just other gfx/trans/gifs/art/fics/video editors/fansites and other content makers. People who make content don’t do it for it to be stolen or screenshot by someone without credit nor their permission.
I don’t care how easy it looks, gif making is far more difficult than it seems. The amount of time it takes to find the video, the recoloring, making sure the gif flows well. You can’t just pop the video into Photoshop and take scenes from it, it’ll literally look like S.H.I.T. I’m mainly basing this off of gif makers because they’ve had the most reposting lately from what I’ve seen. It’s hysterical when you try to deny all accusations of stealing when the original has the same amount of frames, color, and the EXACT same size.
If you aren’t aware of the fact that you’re doing this then I hope you realize this soon and put a stop to it. However, if you’re aware of this and continue to do so when others constantly message you about it plus deny it. Then you’re an ignorant person and give humanity a bad name. It’s really heartbreaking seeing your work online posted by someone else; it’s also really aggravating seeing the amount of notes it gets but then you look at your post with not nearly as much. It’s not about notes though, what hurts most is the support and recognition it gets.
Without followers, the blogger is nothing. Please don’t support these reposters. Check out the post if you can, look into the blog, spot the errors. By you reblogging/liking their post this encourages them to continue. They feed off your support and only grow bigger by this.
