Watermarking Tools: Protecting Your Content Via Desktop, Web and Smartphone

BlogHer Original Post


Instagrams have always been publicly viewable unless one makes their account private, but Facebook’s new integration places the public Instagrams people “like” on their Facebook Timeline, giving Instagrams an even larger audience. The option to watermark them is a nice one, and Phonto makes it easy.

FACT: The notion that because you share your creative content on the web makes it public domain is untrue.

Watermark not because you’re overprotective, but because you’re proud of your contributions to this community.Whether you choose to watermark your images, or not, is entirely up to you. Respect for copyright online has a long way to go.

Every picture tells a story, and these stories belong to us. Copyright gives us the ability, the RIGHT, to decide when and where our work is COPIED. As more and more people find their work used without their knowledge, the issue of making your mark becomes an important consideration.

The market for software and apps is large. Any favorites we all should know about? And if you have watermarking questions, please feel free to ask!
