To watermark or not to watermark photos? This is an endless debate between photographers. Why do photographers use watermarks? Indeed, visual watermarks protect your ownership and copyright from online theft. In some instances, photographers use watermarks for self-promotion, recognition and advertising purposes. You can watermark photos using professional software such as Visual Watermark.
It’s obvious however, that visual watermarks (like logos, large stamps or texts) carelessly placed, distract from the overall look and feel of a photo. When you see such a watermarked photo, all you think about is the watermark.
