Hi Viorel,
may I ask you if the use of watermarked comp image for promotional purpose is officially permitted by DT? I really liked your idea about Facebook album with both personal and microstock pictures, but I noticed that your album "last trip to Paris" is no more available. May you please confirm that we can do something similar, posting on FB watermarked pictures with the link to the DT selling page?

If you like, you can answer on forum too, where i posted the same question.

Thanks in advance and congratulations for your very effective pictures!
