Restricting photos...what does it mean?
What does it mean and are web site photos allowed...even from free sites? What about from Ancestry.com?
Beth Ann Wiseman said: Restricted photos have been rejected for some reason.
The gravestone image was most likely rejected because it is not a person. We are focusing on photos of ancestors now, and tagging people in the photos.
As long as you are not violating any copyright laws, you can upload photos from other sites.
We need to improve our communication on why the photo was rejected and provide an appeal process. Both items are in the works.0
I received an email saying to connect to hhtps://familysearch.org/photos/artifacts/82296746 to see what photo had been rejected. I tried that but no results found. Please let me know what family member this is related to. I cannot locate the person or photo. Thank you, Cheryl Tuning0
9 times out of 10 - you can simply REPLY to the email that let you know the item was restricted with a simple message of "RESTRICTED in ERROR" and the restriction will be lifted.
Keep in mind the initial restruiction is not even dioen by a human being - but some automated process - using less than perfect algorithms
replying to the email will get a human on the issue - and in most cases lisft the restriction
unless it really is not legit.
Familysearch is not keeping track of where you got the photo from.
If it is no in violation of copyright - their is usually no issue.0
