I’ve been considering adding a watermark to my photography posted online. I want to keep it small and unobtrusive, but to help link my photo’s back to me.
I’ve resisted this for awhile, even though quite a few of my photographer friends are using them, because I feel they look a little tacky. Now I’m beginning to change my tune.
As a photographer specializing in event photography, often my photos are used by others in everything from profile pics to personal or business websites. Generally I am flattered and honored (especially if they ask nicely first) but it’s great to at least be given credit.
A watermark, probably lauralovesart.com, on the lower corner would ensure all photos are identified as mine and possibly bring more traffic to my website and business to me. I’m planning to use www.easysector.com’s Batch Photo Watermarker.
I’m going to give it a try. If you have any feedback pro or con, I’d love to hear from you!
