Watermarks on Photos
I haven't been putting watermarks on my photos here, and I've noticed that others haven't either. We do all usually put our names in the corner, but that's not the same thing. The photo I included on this article has a watermark on it. The photo is of a book cover I created and have up for sale.
The watermark doesn't look bad, but it does take away from the photo some. That's why I haven't been using them here. I'm wondering if I should though after receiving a question from bestwriter about why people should purchase photos when they can just copy them. I just thought everyone knew you weren't supposed to copy photographs without permission. I guess not.
Now, I don't know if I want to take the time and go back and make new copies of the photos with watermarks on them and re-upload them or not. That would take forever with as many photos as I have on this site. I also need to decide whether to put watermarks on all future photos.
I will figure it out soon. In the mean time, I sure hope people aren't just copying photos from me or anyone else. Not that we'd ever know it.
