Lots of courses websites touch up their course photos. I get it. It makes it look more lush.

So, I was looking at Teeoff.com lately. I see a course close to me, Vista Valencia, has tee times. I look at the pictures they have on file for the course.

Lots of Hole 17, the island green. Mostly all have a funny, green tint to make the course look lush.

Then I see one that looks lees tinted. It also looks familiar.

It's one that I took and posted here on GK!

Can they do that?

WTH?

By the way, Johnny, I see that the quality of the pictures here on GK has gone down. Everything looks slightly blurry. Or is it my eyes? Maybe it's my computer?

Anyone else notice this?

Teeoff.com is not supposed to do that. Thanks

What happened is the window now sizes to the width of your screen so the older photos that were uploaded in low resolution look blurry. However the quality of photo with all new photos is much higher as you can now upload a photo to GK in high resolution. Let me see if there is nice middle ground. Thanks for bringing that to my attention Kevin.

So, shall we police other websites who may have lifted images or reviews from GK?

Just curious because there are a lot of course photos and reviews posted up here.

There has to be some value in the useable content on this site.

They used to look fine. At least I know it's not my eyes. LOL

The photo resolution is so low I would highly doubt the photos would be possible to use. We're having to turn down the resolution from a cell phone pic.

I don't know the terms and use policy of us posting photos here if they become property of greenskeeper.org.

But you can write the golf course and tell them they do not have authorization to use your intellectual property of the photo and they will take it down.

No, please don't. If it bugs me enough Greenskeeper, LLC will address it. But I appreciate your willingness to go to bat for GK like that Kevin!

You know the only company I ever had to address on a copyright issue and actually it was a registered trademark issue was when Golf Advisor used "Know Before You Go" when they launched. And it was GK'ers that first alerted me to that which is awesome. Thank You.
