    Yes! Every photographer should watermark their images, it keeps what we do valuable. I have had at least one photo stolen and I have heard of many cases where others have too. The fact is that many people only want to use images for the internet to quality and resolution is not that important. So they can just take a screen shot. The only protection is watermarking - everyone should do it!!

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts..

    With the growing influence of social media sharing sites such as Picasa photos / Flickr images Posting online has become a habit for most of us. These images posted can be misused without your permission, people can copy your pictures and use the claim as their own on their websites or commercial enterprises. We have seen many photographers complain about the same thing in blogs and forums.Digital Photography is a tough business to achieve the best protection in the online world and the time tested way of protecting your images by using visual achieve. Visible trace of translucent Text / Logo, which pays your copyright is overlayed on top of the image to be protected, this ensures that your copyright is expressed.

    A watermark is not only to protect your image, but it is also a way to increase your online popularity that people will come to know you from your photos.
