Watermarks on Images

Filed under: General Photography, Websites — photographydublin @ 5:33 pm

I dislike having to add watermarks to my photos, as I feel they reduce the impact a bit. However, in the galleries on my business website, I have included watermarks – albeit fairly unobtrusive ones. The reason for this is that I’ve had images stolen from another of my sites and passed off as someone else’s (even down to having their own copyright notice appended).

I found the images when searching for something else, and they were quickly removed by the webmaster, once I was able to prove ownership. However, I feel it’s sad that anyone would even bother to try and pass someone else’s work off as their own.
