I received a message on one of my hubs that I have a watermarked image or video.
Photographers put watermarks on photos to protect there copyright. It can be faint or bold a name or logo.
Thank you. Is that the same as pixelated? Not sure what that means?
No. A pixilated image is an image that is blown up beyond its capacity to stay integral. You'll see the little pixels or boxes around the edges of pixelated images if you look closely or under a magnifying glass.
A watermark is superimposed over an image so the image cannot be illegally used for profit. If you're using a watermarked image, it's probably ok as long as you're not selling the image without the creator's permission or making profits from their creation.
Thanks, but I was told to remove the watermark image.
But Hubpages does not allow watermarked pictures in hubs.
Did not know this. Even with creator's permission?
Even if it is your own photo - I think it could be flagged.
"Images that are low resolution, grainy, or pixelated detract from the aesthetic appeal of a Hub and are prohibited. For the same reason, images or videos that contain prominent watermarks are also prohibited. This rule applies even if they are your own photos or videos, or photos or videos that you have the legal right to use."
It was an inocent mistake. I could hardly see it. Then when I magnified it, I saw a very blurred "C" hidding under the image.
It means you picture have words or symbols superimposed on them--usually because the creator is trying to protect their rights over the image.
No pixelated is when the image is not clear, a pixel is a 'measurement' term used for the 'dots'in photos, you see the term 'pixel'when you are photo editing.
I am sure there is a more accurate way to describe this hope you can understand it.
I see one video with a word on the bottom right, I am guessing that is the one.

I posted a photo hub and had all positive responses to a photo that I took with my cellphone. The image is clear and has my own 'copyright' mark on the picture. I am shocked that someone would actually say this image is 'not up to standard' as it has since been featured on other sites and repined...

I thought it was against HP's policy for writers to use photos from those sites where the watermark is on the photo. I see lots of photos I'd like to use, but they would have a watermark.I just read a Hub where the author used one of these, and the name of the site shows clearly on the...

Hi to all you hubbers,I am just wondering: am I abandoned and alone in my singular thoughts or perhaps there are others like me! Surely in the year of moving forward and acquiring (hi squidoo's) it is time to preserve our copyright, perhaps it is time for a watermark. I expect many of you feel the...
