Add watermark for commercial success! An example.

Sunday, August 15th, 2010

We talk about the kind of free publicity and promotion that a watermark on your photo can provide.
Here’s a real world example of success that can come if you add watermark to your photos and share online.
The example is that of Mr Douglas Sonders, a commercial photographer and an “adventurer”.
He was able to get 4 million views over a span of one month. Amazing.
He himself attributes the success to the watermark on his photo.
Read the story on his own blog here.
Congratulations and keep adding watermarks!

Myth: Only professionals need to worry about photo misuse and watermarking.

Friday, August 6th, 2010

It is a common misconception that only professional photographers are the victim of image misuse. They might be a little bit more prone,  but image misuse tends to affect common people too. The following link is about a woman whose family picture was stolen and used in another country. She just got lucky that she got to know about it through a  friend. http://www.extraordinarymommy.com/are-you-kidding-me/stolen-picture/

The easiest way to prevent such misuse is to watermark and resize the photos before uploading on the web.

Be safe. Add watermark to photos.
