Are you a blogger or webmaster and you noticed your images are being stolen without any credit back to you as the source? One of the best ways to deter others from stealing your images is by applying a watermark on it, which could be represented by text, logo and copyright notice. Moreover, if they still copy your image despite adding a watermark, then they are making your works known, as it will generate more traffic for your blog or website.

For those who don’t know what watermark really means, it is the process of embedding visual watermarks in photos. It is a great means to brand your work i.e. making others know it is your work.

People who host their photos or art works on sharing sites or social networks too can also take the advantage of watermarking, as your work may be stolen from website where you upload them. To avoid others from stealing your photos and claiming it to be their own, it is necessary you watermark them.
