    Recycling, do you mind?

    After making +6k pictures of my watches (all with my phone, with varying success), i recently started to recyle some pictures from time to time. Do you think it's ok to recycle pictures of your watches? Some of us are geniuses when it comes to making pictures, but i don't belong in that category, and sometimes i just can't get my watch on a picture...

    I recycle lots of my watch pics. Frequently, I just don't have the time to take a fresh pic for the daily threads. I know that in that other forum, several members got all bent out of shape if the WRUW pics weren't taken that day, but whatever. Having/posting some "stock" pics of my watches works for me.

    For wruw one of each is nice - a shiny, touched up stock image and a fresh one. One can take perfectly good photos with a very basic camera phone so there's no excuse for bad ones though!

    That's exactly why i was wondering about this topic. It seems i am still traumatized from how rude some people could be in "the Old Place" I'm glad that people here are so relaxed and friendly, it increases the "family-feel" of this community

    well with the wruw I try to do one for that day but then it becomes one of my stock photos so if in a middle of a conversion and that watch is beening talk about then I would use the stock pic .. and some times you just get a really good pic that you want to use a lot.

    so I say what the hay a nice watch pic is a nice watch pic do we need to think any further than that

    I would not blaze someone with a wrong date on a pic lol yes probably I would think it was a stock pic but hey if you busy it's better then no pic so I still say enjoy the pic's and dat what counts

    I guess it's much easier for tapatalk users to snap a wristie and post it than those who don't. And then there are some very strange people like @Little Big Feather who don't even have a phone, let alone one with a camera

    -make a phonepic with photobucket.
    -open photobucket on my desktop
    -find the picture i uploaded
    -copy the picture in my photomap
    -open IWL
    -click insert image on the topic i want to post in
    -search in the miniature pictures wich picture i want to post
