Thanks Harry. I knew it was possible, but never had any idea how easy it is with free programs.

Good thread Harry. I don't tweet or face book because I am concerned about the level of personal info that is up for public knowledge, and also because I couldn't care less what everyone else is doing. There is one other aspect of what the video implies. If you are posting photos that have GPS coordinates that are hundreds or thousands of kilometers away from your home address that means you aren't at home.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Wow. Interesting info. I've got a real cheap camera phone, so pretty sure that wouldn't concern me - but don't take pictures of anything valuable anyway, and that's because I don't even own anything valuable.

I'm home about 99% of the time, so maybe I should post a picture of my 12ga house gun, to keep anyone from getting bright ideas tho, just in case.

I live very near to town, very modern, so here's a couple of photos from there. No way am I computer literate enough to figure out where it is, so maybe someone else can check and see if they can find it.

Thanks a lot for the info, Harry.

Thatīs the main reason I do not use Facebook, Tweeter or any other social media.

I have not any valuable stuff but privacy is unvaluable.

We, woodworkers are everywhere!!!

You should prop your shotgun next to a sign that reads "I Don't Fire Warning Shots".
