    I post original artwork on my site but I’ve never watermarked any of my work because I had read somewhere that if someone really wanted to steal your work they could by removing the watermark or editing it out. Is there software out there now that somehow prevents them from removing the watermark?

      Hi JccKeith, welcome!

      There’s nothing to prevent a serious thief from stealing digital artwork. But I think a watermark will deter some theft, and for people who just don’t know better (who download and repost images) at least your name is on it and getting spread around. I can’t think of any reasons not to watermark! At least you make it a little harder for the bad guys!

    Hi Louise

    ‘Warty O’Bourbon’ here :)
    I had seen this graphic so many times on Facebook (and had a big smile at his cleverness), it’s such a shame Jeff didn’t watermark it.

    Thanks for the timely reminder.

    Dee :)

      I don’t think he had any idea of how fabulous it is! I looked today and just between Jeff’s original post and George’s, it’s had over 100,000 shares. Not to mention people who downloaded, and in some cases put their own name on it! :(

    Yes we must remember to watermark our images or we won’t get credit for what we created and maybe someone else will.
