I've noticed quite a few people are linking directly to images on other sites. This is called Hotlinking and is a form of theft. Everytime a hotlinked picture is displayed the originating server uses bandwidth - which isn't free. The server/site owner is having to pay for that usage.

Before you directly link to an image either make sure you have permission to link to the picture from the owner of the site containing the image (and mention the site it is from as a courtesy to the owner) or post a link to the image rather than the image itself.

Thank you for your cooperation.
