    Watermarked pictures are pictures that have been taken from stock photo sites without permission. They usually have the name of the company (like iStockphoto, Alamy, or Getty Images) written in the center of the photo in big light letters and diagonal lines that converge in the middle of the photo.

    I'm not as sure about pixelated pictures; I think it just means that the resolution is too low for the pics to display properly.

    Watermarked images is a logo marked image. The logo or markings in images which prevent it for unauthorized uses. This type of images is only for veiwing. You will need to buy it if you want unmarked image.

    Pixilated images is a kind of image which is bigger than its original size and it is being pixlized than its original size.

    The water mark question has been answered well below. In sum, a watermarked picture is a "protected" picture. You can watermark a picture by putting your name over it in semi  transparent font or use a logo that is semi-transparent (Hence the term-watermark). If you need a watermark for your images you can get one here

    A pixaelated picture is one that has been enlarged so much that it shows the bits that it is made of, which are called pixels. These are square blocks of colour that make up an image. The opposite of a pixel image is called a vector image which is made up of mathematically calculated blocks of colour which do not distort with enlargement.

    A watermarked picture is one has an added layer that has a copyright.  Most are taken from stock photo sites without permission, but HubPages doesn't like you to watermark your own pictures either.

    A pixelated picture is a blurry one because it has been stretched beyond its original size. It doesn't look good and lowers the look and quality of the page.

    I know for sure speaking digital photography which is most commonly used today, that pix-elation starts when the picture is taken.  A pixel is the smallest amount of an image that can be individually processed in a video display system, depending on how the picture is saved (which is usually automatically set on your camera) The more pixels per square inch of the photo, the better the images, on the other hand this takes up more memory/space.  If the picture saved takes up a lot of space, it is more than likely high resolution or simply a large image. All pictures are saved in some form of bitmap (each pixel corresponds to one or more bits in memory, the number of bits per pixel determining the number of available colors) EX: BMP, JPEG, JPG are the most common method of auto image saving.  JPEGs' tend to take up less space, no matter what size the actual image is.  If the images simply saves as BMP it can be played with easily in any program to change, crop or modify as needed.  After modifying you can choose to save the picture/image as the type of your choice.  I'll get back to you on the watermarked thing, A watermarked picture or a watermark is usually some form of a copyright and of course a special image/word that shows up in the backgroud of an image.
