    Also, they can help prevent theft. It's true, if someone REALLY wants it, they will get it. But watermarking your images is like parking your bentley next to a mondeo - people will steal the mondeo because it's less effort. (and like wise, if people really want a Bentley, they'll take it anyway)

    To the OP, think about your watermark from outside the box. Your watermark should be easy to trace, there are 41,400,000 results for "jack baker" on Google, I didn't look, but I'm guessing most of the result pages don't show you ;P

    Yip there no harm in watermarking your images, its just a bit of trial and error to get it right.

    all the best

    I put a watermark just to leave my mark in an image; I designed my logo and that's my watermark/signature so I feel like it's just like signing my art. However unlike many water markers(not sure how to classify that group o_o ) I set my watermark to 25px brush in Photoshop place it somewhere on the clients clothes however with a very transparent opacity so it would only be noticed by me (well and you now...) if I zoomed in a lot.

    I've thought about doing that, a small "mark" that you don't see unless you look for it. Then you don't have people saying it ruins the image, but you can prove its yours. The only downside is when people steal the image and downsize it and the mark gets lost

    Eh. I'm not really worried about my images getting stolen; if they are stolen however I'm sure I wouldn't need a watermark to prove it's mine.

    Yea, I can relate to the trial and error had a hideous font once I started playing with it in lightroom. I've finessed it to a better look now. Now dealing with people who want to crop it out and not say shit about who it's from. With no change of money. And on some images you can see the watermark in the pics that they cropped. As a result some pics have disappeared from their sites as a result of it.

    This is a new type of Spam. This 'hellooo' 'person' has suddenly posted in loads of threads (necro-ing a good few) and the posts are just copy-and-pastes of parts of comments other people made earlier in the thread.
