I was wondering if there is any way to tell whether or not an image is watermarked, apart from checking the corner of the picture for the little symbol.
My eyesight is too weak to see it, and I've recently been using watermarked pictures by accident because of it.

Try using images from wikimedia commons or other public domain sites. These images are intended for public use and are not watermarked (be sure to give proper credit to the image source, though).

Could one of the HubPages team confirm the official position re watermarked pictures? I know the rules say "prominent" watermarks are not allowed, but I can also understand the desire of Hubber photographers...
