Photographers have been dealing with it forever, but thanks to the Internet, it’s become easier than ever for thieves to take images. And it doesn’t just affect photographers anymore. Anyone who’s creating unique images knows the pain of unattributed image theft.
This applies to images of products too. Nobody likes it when someone takes his product images and uploads them to his store. In nowadays, every store is trying to creatively present her product, and the customers will choose the most creatively and beautifull presentation.
So what’s the best way to stop people from taking your images without your consent? Never upload them to the Internet and keep them locked in a safety deposit box.
Unfortunately, that’s not very practical.
So what’s the second best way? Add a watermark to your image so that, even if someone does take your image without your consent, people will at least know that it came from you.
