helleborine, your work is not sacred or important to most of the internet, period. No amount of anger will negate that. Yes, there will be people who manually save your pictures and upload them to other sites. Yes, there are automated bots that have nothing but vicious intent. Learn and adapt or you'll be stuck in that endless cycle. Frankly that mentality that you're holding on to is just like that of the MPAA and RIAA, some of the if not the most hated groups on the internet because of not only their inability to adapt their brute-force business "tactics" though because they overvalue other people's hard work that they profit from. Your work is your own though and sure, you should get compensated for it though if you can't adapt your business tactics to the medium then either find another medium or another business.
