okay since yall can apparently not grasp this simple concept im gonna say this one more time
stop!!!!! reposting!!!!! edits!!!! u did not make!!!!!!! this includes gifs graphics edits typos fanart and like everything u did not create!!!!
i know most of yall seem to think there’s magic buttons on Photoshop and u press them and BOOM u have a beautiful graphic or gif but that’s not what happens!!! most of these edits yall take 8 seconds to steal and post take HOURS to make. editors spend so much of their time trying to get colourings to work/thinking of graphic ideas/choosing fonts colours textures scenes everything!!!! and when y'all steal someone’s edits and post them on your blog for followers and reblogs you’re taking away the notes/exposure from someone who actually worked hard to make the edit. and I’m not even talking about using gifs as reaction images etc bc most gifmakers (myself included) are fine w that (but that doesn’t mean u shouldn’t ask them if ur using their gifs) but some of yall demons literally copy entire gifsets to post on your blogs just for notes?? and YES, stealing gifs from a bunch of different places to make posts like “the way she smiles” with ten gifs y'all stole from god knows where , is also reposting!!!! stop doing that!!!!!
i also see sooo many people reblogging edits from people who obviously didn’t make them and just reposted and while there’s no way to know if an edit is reposted just by looking at it, PLEASE take a minute to read this:
- if you see any edit from a blog/url that you’ve never seen edits from before plEASE check their original post for signs it’s reposted (im not saying everytime it’s a new url means its reposted which is why im mentioning these following points)
- check the original posts’ tags and they’re usually a very clear indicator of whether the edit is reposted or not. original content creators pretty much always tag their posts as “tswiftedit/taylorswiftedit/tswiftgif/tsedit” and also with tags like “my edits/my gifs/mine” etc. a lot of content creators also tag their creations w “*(or a variation of some other tag with an asterisk)”. IF A POST IS JUST TAGGED WITH TAGS LIKE “taylurking/the names of every taylor song/album” and does not have any tags like “tswiftedit/my edits/the tags i mentioned before” THERE IS A 99.9% CHANCE THE EDIT IS REPOSTED!!!
- a lot of editors also watermark their edits w their urls so if along with points 1 and 2 if this happens as well u can pretty much be sure it’s reposted.
- follow your intuition?? i mean there’s no way yall dont realise a reposted edit when u see one esp when it has all (or even one) of the points I mentioned before.
TL;DR if you want to continue to see pretty edits on your dashboards, sSTOP REPOSTING OTHER PEOPLES CONTENT YA COWARDS!!! also please try to be more aware about whether or not the content you’re reblogging is original or not!!! honestly so many people take content makers for granted and yall continue to pull this crap despite MULTIPLE warnings and I’ve seen soo many content makers who stopped posting altogether because of the reposts so if you want to continue to see edits from your favourite editors support your local content makers instead of reblogging from reposters!!! thank u!!!!
