Always make a copy of images you want to use in your pages. This is common good Netiquette - In other words


What is direct linking?

Direct Linking is using my URL in a image HTML tag on your webpage or in your signature.



You need to make a copy of the image on your PC by right clicking save as? Or by FTP=F.ile T.ransfer P.rotocol to your Webhost account. Also called Transloading, Downloading, or Uploading to your scrapbook for those that have that function. So the URL should look like this with your info in the Domain area of the URL:


If you were brought to this page because this image appeared instead of the image you intended. The reason this happened is that you are direct linking to my image url. You need to save the image by right clicking save as. Or upload to your webhost. This image is delivered by default, from the directives inside of a .htaccess script. For more information on .htaccess please go to the link at the bottom of this page.


If you are offended by this default image. There is an easy way for you to never see it again. Don't direct link to my images. This is a very Tame Bandwidth Bandit Badge image. Compared to some default images you will see if you continue to direct link to others image URL's.

Make your own copy on your own server. Also DO NOT copy my entire page source code and place it into a page on your webhost.

This can also be done by Transloading a webpage meaning a file that ends in .html or .htm. Many people are mis-informed and believe they are transloading all of the images within the webpage when transloading an .html file.

This is =False= By doing that you are only copying the source code nothing more. So this is also "Direct Linking". The Images are sourcing from my web host server.

I ask that you do not take my hard work & make a collection and then call it your own. Or that you add them to your collection & put your copyright on them. This includes making tubes and/or putting on CD-Roms.

Please feel free to use the images you find here as often as you like. You can cut them up. Composite them every which way. Color change them, blur them, resize them, fold spindle but hopefully not mutilate! If you do I won't fink on you. Have a pixel party, fine with me.

You will NOT hear from me:
"Don't change a thing"
Nope! How can people learn if they don't have images to experiment with? Right, they can't. Hands on is the only way to learn effectively in my opinion.

I DO require a link back to this site.
This is the only site that I do require a link back to me.
A text link is fine. If you intend on making a tute, gallery of wine glasses either in part or in full, a link back to this, the original tutorital "IS REQUIRED", so others can make their own.

Thank you!

Image passionately yours,
