The 'import to database' is nice, but I don't like the idea that anyone can send any picture to the database without the authors permission. I prefer to have absolute control over what pictures of mine are sent to the database for the main reason that every picture I submit to the database has my name imbedded in it .. most of the time you can see it but sometimes you can't but it's there. Pictures I upload into threads usually don't have my name imbedded in it and not all the pictures I upload to the threads are good enough technically in my opinion to be added.

Is there a way to opt out of this?

Yes, any member can opt out and I've had people even ask for a temporary opt out. Shall I mark your images in the system as "do not import"?
