p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · C&C etiquette


Hi, since I am new here I wanted to ask:

If a poster invites C&C, is it acceptable to edit and re-post the image under discussion as part of providing feedback? On one hand, it is often the best (clearest/fastest/etc) way to offer an alternative. On the other hand, perhaps some people, even after inviting C&C, would object.

What is the custom/guideline/forum rule here?

general consensus is no, unless you get the OK from the original poster.

Josh is right. Be sure and ask first. It's just the respectful thing to do.

It's a judgment call for each forum.

On dpreview, the feedback I got was the opposite: that if the OP explicitly asked for c&c, and any edits were done respectfully and for the purpose of c&c, then it would generally be fine.

As I said, I can see both sides. An edited example for side-by-side comparison can often be more helpful than a lot of words alone. It may also offend some people. That's why I asked - to respect the rules for this particular forum.

Cheers,
Lee

I don't like it. An explanation will do, and I'll apply it on my own image if I feel it has merit. The exception is if the post is about a post processing technique and not the OP's final work.

And now the people on dpreview are agreeing with the folks here: it's something best avoided. That's all I needed to know.

Thanks!
