That's why you don't post the same photos on different eBay accounts...

I think this was what happened to me the other day when i took a pic with a camera i used on my origanal suspened account,then wham! within 1/2hr suspended. I went nuts at my wife as i thought it was an error from her using the computer,but when i added up the ends i told her it could have been the pic that i uploaded from the camera.

It is possible but very unlikely.

I used the same pics on several accounts -which are still alive- but changed only a) name of the pics and b) format and size of the pics.

I agree with ebaykilla.
Alot of people uses other seller pics to list. Though it is image theft EB will only act if it was repoted to them.

I am using a Kodak C875. This is the only digital camera I have ever owned. This is the same camera that I have used on two suspended accounts. I'm not sure if this camera records the information in the PIC as mentioned but for me this is not affecting my current accounts. I have mentioned about a week ago that I will take multiple pics of the same items and rename them differently. I also use different background colors. Only use one picture with one ebay account. I also have been using the watermark feature that Auctiva provides. I will place my user name in the picture to help prevent people stealing my pics. I will always place the text where it would be hard to remove using Photoshop. Not impossible to remove but difficult.

To comment on what Modee said about stealing photos. I was once suspended for 7 days because Someone used my pic and reported it to eBay that I stole his pic. Prior to the suspension, I emailed the person and requested him to remove or replace his pic because I was the one who created it. He told me to go **** myself and said that he will do whatever he wants. I did not report the pic thing to eBay because I just took another pic. Ebay didn't even research the incident. Its obvious that my auction was posted before his.

yeah if you did report it EB will most likely check both listings and in most cases will end the other persons listing.

Come on guys... this won't link your accounts. EBay only goes off the image URL.

It's true. This thread is about whether EBAY will link you to past accounts via your photos.

i really don't think ebay is using the camera info against us. unless the camera serial number is there in the properties. to check what info is stored on your image:


in windows


goto your pictures folder

right click on a photo

select properties

in the upper tab goto summary

click advanced.

there you will see all the info stored with the photo.

on mine it shows what model camera but not the serial number. they sold tons of that model camera so i am not worried at all

Well i know now that this is true
i have sold a few items on this account and this mornning i listed a item with a photo i used from the camera i used last time
1/2 hr later suspended so it can only be this.
I dont know what info the pic is sending but i have found that using pics off the net seems to be the better way of listing.

Default (extreme paranoia!) Any way to batch remove CAMERA information from PICTURES ?

Sorry if this was discussed before,
but it is known that your camera model is stored on each photo you take.

Probably over paranoid here, but maybe it can be the final proof a T&S pig would need to link your accs.

Is there a program to remove this information from a group of jpg?
