    This image was on my 9-5 jobs website. Look closer and you’ll see it. I cannot believe they shelled out a ton of money almost five thousand for this company to use a free theme. This was the only customized portion of that free theme they did, and they couldn’t even purchase a few bucks of stock photos.



    I hope it made you chuckle, like it did to me.

    In a clever way they made it so that it didn’t affect the overall impression of the banner. Some good editing work there by the designer although maybe they should be reported.

    You’re darn right they should be reported. Nothing is clever about stealing IMO.

    That made me *facepalm*. I would also pursue them like a hawk. I have no tolerance for anybody who steals stock photos (especially MY stock photos, which this isn’t, just saying).
