or reused ...what should I do to protect them from being used on the net or for other purposes without discretion...
This hub is being written more as a promotion of a unique art fair...
Any advice would be welcome...I have no clue... Thank you
Your hub is protected by copyright, but as many of us have found that is no guarantee at all that it will not be stolen and re-posted somewhere else.
In many cases simply demanding that it be removed is sufficient, but often it is difficult to impossible to enforce that. It is a risk you run when publishing on the web.
You could also put a watermark on every image.
Tritrain, any idea how to do it or where i could fine info on water marking..i will check out but if you have some handy information that you could share it would be splendid.
Thanks I do appreciate the help.
Another suggestion is signing your art, or initialing it in a way that only you know about. Then get dated photo evidence of your work, and keep it in a safe place, just in case you have to deal with theft. They often tell writers to make copies of their manuscripts and then mail it to themselves but don't open it when you get it. Sort of like dated evidence.
But, it's just a suggestion.
I have faced this and came to the conclusion that there are only two ways, one is to put the picture through Photoscape or other imaging program and put text across the image that removes the original pixels from behind so that it cannot be easily reconstructed - which is quite easy if you spend a few minutes playing with the program. another is to reduce the quality of the image (not the size) to a point where your small image is just clear enough but will not expand to a clear useable image, this would seem to be at an image size of less than 200KB which is about good enough for a large thumbnail type pic.
If there are any other ways I would also like to know about them.
AND in publishing the pcs you are plagiarising if you don't have permission to use them in the first place

I often intend to put a module either within my hub, or at the end, that might include some standard text/a link, e.g. that says "Copyright Me (Year) - Please do not copy and paste this article, but feel free to...

I really appreciate how HubPages alerts us when our Hubs are copied. I find the Copied Hubs Report very useful. The little red (c) icon, not so much. When I see this I don't remember if it is new or old, or if it is...
