Help with Watermarked Images?

    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.

    I use a text-to-speech programme, and was hoping someone would know of an alternitive way of checking for watermarks.

    Thank you.

      They have a symbol on the corners? I never knew.

      Use free pics instead

      Thank you to the both of you.
      I'll give that a go.

    Vendetta,

    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).

    Vendetta: some worry-free photo URLs for you:

    Beware of Flickr.com, by the way. People think everything on Flickr is free to use, when in fact, it is not. You want to make sure you look at the license icons at the right side of each page.

    Make sure your read the Learning Center's policies on proper image attribution, too. This will keep your hubs from being flagged. The specific hub that talks about images is this one:

    Best of luck!
