Who wants watermarks?
I find the photographs I post on HubPages all over the internet, most recently on webpages that have "Jill Spencer on HubPages" in the freaking URLs. Some of the photos are being sold as wallpaper. I really wish that HP would allow us to place tasteful watermarks on our photographs to slow the thievery down a bit. Anyone with me?

Thanks, Elsie. I will look at that. I'm sure people have been discussing this as photo grabbing is a common problem. I just got so steamed today, I guess I needed to vent. lol The hub (with one photo) jacked today twice is the one being edited by HP.
You can use an invisible watermark by Digimarc as an alternative.
Yeah it really pissed me off when someone used mine. I tried watermarks but there is a fee to it
The best thing you can do is watermark your images yourself using a free program like Paint.net for PC users or a Paid program like Photoshop (any version will work.) The main thing you need for watermarking is layer functionality.
