Do you put the watermark on the photos you upload online?

Some people will put watermarks as they are afraid someone will use their photos. But I have never wanted to put watermarks on the photos I upload online. For example, if someone who uses my cooking photo, it is like my honor and I will be proud of it. I don't mind it at all. This is why I don't want to leave the watermark. I like sharing.

The reason why many people put watermarks on their pictures is because some will claim it's theirs when it isn't. I know many artists who draw portraits have to put a watermark because if they don't someone can easily take their pictures iand tell others they drew it.

But the original photos are in my hands. The online photos can't be as large as the original ones.

i don't put watermarks. I feel the same way if someone uses the photo I have taken. It's my honor.

I don't mind too. I know some people really worry and don't like people to use their things. They will feel that they lose something.

I think these worries are not very necessary.

@youless Yes. But, some people's mind is like this. It is hard to change.

Yes, I do sometimes. It depends on the photo and situation. For instances, when I was selling my LV purse - I had to water mark it with my name/username because it had the serial #. Many people will steal photos and want to sell their fake bags. Little and behold, someone contacted me telling me they saw my photos used on Craigslist from a person living in another area! I flagged their post but we cannot do much...

Some websites provide the watermarks for you to choose when you want to upload the photos. Or you can use Photoshop to make your own. It is easy.

Sometimes I do, but if someone wants to steal your photos there are plenty of utilities to remove the watermarks, so I think that it's time wasted.
