I sell some of my photos and was wondering is it okay to now watermark my own photos that I post in my Hubs - not real clear on the guidelines. Thanks - Jane@CM
I put a copyright under my photo's now, I know they can still be stolen but hope people have enough respect to take the copyright with the picture. I have been looking for a way to embed the copyright in the photo itself but don't know if hub pages would even allow that.
I think a if person comes up with a simple program which embeds copyrights they could make a lot of money. If this happened I think hub pages would allow it but honestly have no idea.
Second foot shot, two shots in one day - well that about does it for me.
If you email and get a response please post it here - my guess is that uploading to Hubpages means Hubpages own the rights, however, we should be able to watermark our own pictures !
well I can't imagine that HP would own the rights to a photo I took and posted with a hub that I wrote under my profile name. That doesn't make sense to me.
During that process the photo us uploaded into your photo gallery and that seems to be the sticker. It is apparently not an easy job to get photos out of that gallery.
Because you post them as Hubpages first, and they can become subject to any change in TOS that HP chooses to make at any time it suits them. I guess in any change you would have the right to remove them, but that would entail removing an integral part of your hub.

At the bottom it says that they are prohibited, even if they are your own photos. Can't say that it makes sense to me but....that's what their rules say.
You would think you would be able to mark them so others can't steal them, right? Guess not.
I read where the violation is a "prominent watermark" on the image or a video.
I "mark" my own images with the "circle c" copywrite symbol and my name. It is not prominent, so it does not take away from the appearance of the image on the hub.
But, a thief can still take our images if they want them bad enough.
What possible LEGITIMATE reason could HP have for banning watermarks on our own photos ?????????????????
I found this information about locating copied (stolen) images on the net. it's a plugin for Firefox

I always use visual watermarks with all my online photos. I don't feel comfortable using my photos online without them. Almost all my photos that transferred over have them. I heard that photos...

Correct. Easily noticeable marking, signing or watermarking of your photos in any way is not permitted.If you upload unoriginal photos make sure they are copyright free or available under creative commons.

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...
