Forum:Images by Lady Elleth
Hi! This is LadyElleth from deviantArt (http://ladyelleth.deviantart.com/). I recently gave permission to User Woolly Mammoth (who I understand is now blocked, according to his Talk page) to use my photomanipulations on Tolkien Gateway, and he uploaded several of them (http://tolkiengateway.net/wiki/Category:Images_by_Lady_Elleth), but he also made changes I did not authorize - cropping out borders and apparently tinkering with blur, colour and contrast of my art. The borders have been removed on most of them; other alterations were made on:

I'm new to wiki editing, and I don't want to alter anything without permission or a clearer idea of what is going on, so help how to proceed from here would be very welcome. Thank you! —Unsigned comment by Elleth (talk • contribs).
- Welcome to Tolkien Gateway, Lady Elleth - I'm glad that you are such a fan of the website.
- Can I first apologise, on behalf of Tolkien Gateway, for Woolly Mammoth inappropriately amending your artwork. Unfortunately, I am not surprised as, in the past, he had uploaded other people's artwork as his own. I am sorry that you have been a victim in this regard.
- I have deleted all the files mentioned above and replaced them with your correct images - I hope this is OK? --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 16:42, 6 November 2015 (UTC)
- Thank you for the warm welcome and the quick response. I'm sorry to hear you've been having trouble with this particular user, but I'm very grateful that you took action so fast. Having the correct images on display is wonderful and all I could have asked for; thank you very much. It looks like I actually missed some of the edited pictures in my lineup, though - I can only blame being tired and distracted when I made this post yesterday. If you could replace these three as well, I'd be very grateful, and I apologize for the additional work.
