Legalised online theft
Are you aware that very soon you as a photographer or digital artist will soon lose your rights of copyright online?
Watermark your work
I have made my own mistakes and have not water marked everything, especially starting out in my early days of blogging.
Include a copyright statement on your website or blog.
It will not stop the work being used stolen, however watermarks and statements help discourage some theft.
I include copyright in my metadata. If I Upload to Facebook, it comes up with the title. Metadata can stripped out, but it is published all the same and is visible
see this link
Ensure you include © and the wording copyright, your name/business or both, whatever suits you, here’s mine as an example.
Copyright © ArtyAnge
I use Lightroom for my watermarks.
On another note – Adobe Subscription
Take note about Adobe, they have gone for subscription of their software, no more discs, you pay monthly instead to get you updates etc.
If you already have bought discs you do not have to subscribe unless you want the updates that software.
Thank you for stopping by and watermark your work today !
