Usually, commissioners always use the presized version for their upload, but this particular one did not. I tried asking them politely to use the file I've provided them instead of the original file (FA resized it anyway, but it's still larger than I had intended, and the file that I had sent them). They asked why, I tried to give an explanation, they outright disagreed/refused. I'm trying to be polite, but he wasn't the nicest person throughout the commission process either.
My question here is, shouldn't a commissioner respect the artist's wishes when reuploading a commissioned picture to their own page? I set the size at 800*600 because I felt it was a nice, easy to view size for most screens/devices. His reasoning is that he has a 1080p screen, why should he care about the other people out there with smaller screens/what's the point of having the large file (which is 7200*5400) if he can't share it? It was a YCH auction piece, he's not the only person in the image, and I've tried to tell him that I provide the larger image so that people can use it as a desktop, share personally among friends, print, etc., do whatever privately with, as long as it doesn't provide them profit. I don't know what to do, and I'm just hoping for some advice about reuploading content. What's worked for other people? Am I wrong to say that he needs to use the file I've provided? I've never had this issue before... Oh, and I don't have a ToS right now, it's in progress of being written, but I can't exactly stop taking commissions just cause I don't have one yet ;_; I hadn't had the urge to work on it faster because most people are... quite decent people/commissioners o.o
I have screencaps of the conversation, but I don't want to necessarily use those unless I make an actual beware of the commissioner (his attitude wasn't very polite, but not exceptionally rude. There was no insulting, just nothing... pleasant.)
Thanks in advance!
