    I just received an email saying a flickr user had "added" one of my images "as a favorite"....but the image is not on my SmugMug website. And I don't do Flickr.

    Oh, it's my image all right......prior to final editing. The final version is on my website, but not what the Flickr user posted. The image the Flickr user posted still had the stem the dragonfly was perched on. The stem bisected the dragonfly so I removed it.

    What's going on?

    Weird! Did you ever post the version with the stem anywhere on the web?

    I was seeking feedback about using textures...and I might have posted an earlier version here. But it is no longer on my website, so a Flickr user tagging it seems really strange.

    I just sent you a PM. A Flickr user can't tag an image on Smugmug. The image itself is in an old Flickr account. It's the only one there, or at least the only one which is publicly viewable.

    Thanks for figuring this out. I have no record of ever setting up a Flickr account. I'm wondering if this occurred when I was asked to be a moderator and for some reason needed to check out Flickr? Who knows! Old age???? LOL!

    But now I will see if I can delete the account I didn't know I had!
