Did you know the images posted in City Data forum threads are on the Google Images search engine? I didn't. I expected that if you submitted a photo for the C-D web pages (towns within states) they would be picked up but not the photos inside forum threads.

I was looking for something using the search engine and came across one of my own originally posted in one of the other CD forums. It picks up the text with the photo for the key word search.

I didn't specifically know but I would have expected it to be so. Sites have to opt-out if they don't want their images indexed rather than opt-in.
