To watermark or not to watermark
Okay, I’m curious. Do you add a watermark to the photos you post on your blog or on flickr? I didn’t when I started blogging, but in the past few months, I’ve started adding them before posting a photo.
There have been a few times that I’ve found my photos turn up in various places, including other blogs, without credit or a link back to One Ordinary Day. I’ve also read about how similar things have happened to other bloggers out there. In fact, in one instance, someone’s photo was “lifted” and then entered into a contest.
So I guess my question is this… should I be adding a watermark and does it really protect my photos from being used without my permission? Probably not. But I’m really curious about your opinions on this. I hope you weigh in!
