It is very annoying when you want to find the source or the artist of an artwork you see on tumblr but the name and credits have been removed after a number of reblogs. I have never understood why people remove credits when they reblog an image because wouldn’t you want to find out more about the artist and see other works that they have done?
One thing I would like to see change on tumblr is if people stopped doing that. When you remove the source of an image it becomes just another anonymous image doing its rounds on tumblr.
I’ve started getting a lot of people reblog my work and remove my name and title, and I don’t know why. Do you want to claim ownership or do you just do it so your own blog looks more consistent and neat? Either way it’s upsetting to every artist to see this happen, even though it’s practically inevitable.
I appreciate that people like what I do, but in the future please leave all images as they are, credits and descriptions and all, if you really do respect artists and their work.
Almost everyday when I’m scrolling through my dashboard I come across an image that has no source. The artist put a lot of work into creating that image, its frustrating to not be able to explore more of what they do.
