They're your pictures. That should answer the question.

I think the question is one of "should" rather than "could". I am very hesitant to put photos I am trying to sell on any website except DT, particularly one so notoriously insecure and fickle as FB.

You can promote your pictures/artwork portfolio by creating a Webpage, Blog, Facebook page or by any other way. For security you should post smaller version with watermark on your images.

I do, I usually put water mark and I reduce size just like Grafoo said.

One of my model put some pictures I've made for stock on facebook account. After short time, I found these pictures in many places on Internet, with no watermark of course. So it was a VERY BIG mistake! I ask the model to delete the pictures but it was too late :)

IF YOU WANT TO HAVE SALES HERE, DON'T GIVE AWAY ANY PHOTO WITHOUT WATERMARK!

Good advice. Look at my fb account, I promote my Dreamstime picture only via Share function from Dreamstime page (ask if you don't know how to do this). This way you protect your photos from thievs.

In only post links to a photo (eg to dreamstime) on facebook I never upload the actual photo (even watermarked) if it is somewhere for sale.

I think watermarking is a poor deterrent because I find my photos all the time on blogs and even professional websites with watermarks still on them. I found one of my watermarked photos on the website of a group of lawyers who refused to even answer my emails when I requested that they take it down. Incredibly incompetent for attorneys to use watermarked photos on their professional website but they did.

looked up how to do watermark; seems simple.

Will look up share function too.

This is a really useful message board.

You should read the Terms of Service for each of the social media sites before you post anything to them - these sites are fond of giving themselves free licenses to use your work without compensation or attribution to you. For example, today clause 2.1 from Facebook's Statement of Rights and Responsibilities states in part (tomorrow may be different): "For content that is covered by intellectual property rights, like photos and videos (IP content), you specifically give us the following permission, subject to your privacy and application settings: you grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use any IP content that you post on or in connection with Facebook (IP License)." And, having said that much, I should also tell you that Tumblr seems to be different....

Alvera's advice about using mechanisms like the DT Share function is very good advice.

As far as I can tell the most common consequence of uploading photos to the social media sites is to make them effectively free to anyone and everyone when your ambition is that users will pay for use....

Dreamstime sells via Timelineimages.com (it belongs to Dreamstime) pictures speacially to use for the Timeline Cover of Facebook-Profiles (cut to 852 x 315 px)

How do Dreamstime manage this with the Rights???
I have no Problem, if someone want to use one of my Pictures as Timeline Image, but i have a problem with the rules of Facebook... Has Dreamstime a speacial Agreement with Facebook???

(sorry for my english)

For 1$ ???

From the FAQ of Timelineimages: "When you download an image from this site, you also purchase an image license by which we grant to you a limited, revocable, non-exclusive, non-transferable license on the image in question. "

non-transferable license -> but with the upload on Facebook the user grant, that the content is non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable,, ....

Always put watermarked photos on Facebook and it should have your portfolio web address on the photo itself so that people come to you even if your photos are used with watermark.

Timeline images are handpicked, aren't they? I wish mine was there.
