Ben. Lots of people are leaving the IMG number as Titles of Postings.
Did you know that Google Images often shows iSpot pictures but they are captured by the title (I think)? I also notice that Other Observations (in iSpot) seem sometimes to be gathered not from the ID but the Title.
You can change titles easily through Edit - I did all my early ones to good effect.
Good wishes

no protection

No, it would protect your images - you are right.
I find it a pleasure to be asked for reproductive rights and have rarely had an issue.
If you now look in Google Images for 'Dead Moll's Fingers' you will see several iSpot ones; there is no serious risk of 'theft' but there is a chance that your pics will be seen by a lot of people and WILL be used in amateur research.

I think the first two will make Google the same day.
NOT everyone likes their pics in Search Engines. Indeed I have a few MISidentified ones in Google images!
Good luck then.
