Now here is a quick post regarding an issue which is a problem all over the internet, image protection.
I see many people here on AR complain that their images have been used without their permission and without compensation or attribution to who owns those images. I have recently just searched out and started to use a free watermark program to add words to my photos when I am going to post them here on AR. Take a look.
The program I use is called FREE WATERMARK and is a pretty simple program. I use it because I only do 1 image at a time and I did not want any software that I had to download or install. It is an extremely basic program and simple enough for a rookie like me.
I would love to see Active Rain have a simple watermark program built into the image insert/edit function. Something simple which would automatically add a little marketing for the blogger and Active Rain onto the images that are posted on this site. For a bunch of people who know the value in all this free marketing power, I hope to see this suggestion embraced and implemented within a week.
Something like this:
Now this image would be a lot less likely to be stolen and used without permission. Also the image has my name on it which is great and my blog address so anyone who is really interested in whatever I have photographed can find me, and also gives a nod to the site which the image is posted on which is free publicity for Active Rain.
If AR had a method of having a free automatic watermarker on their image insert/edit bog it would benefit everybody.
