Dears,

I was wondering how important is it to watermark our photos,

Is it related to how professional we are in photography ?! or it is just a point of view between photographers ?!

Digital watermarking is used to avoid illegal copying of images by integrating a more or less visible copyright notice on the photo. We can wait for expert opinion

As Muneer said the main reason for watermarking photos is to avoid illegal use of your pictures. Also it is advertisement for you as a photographer. I watermark all the photos I put on social networks like Facebook for example, so people know who took the picture in case they like it and want to hire you as a photographer.

Just remember watermark should not be distracting. Personally I prefer to place watermark within the frame, instead of on the image. My thing is, if somebody want to use the image without my permission, they can photoshop watermark from the image anyway unless you put a huge one right in the middle (which makes it more difficult to photoshop).

This is how I usually do it:

In the United States a photograph is the legal property of the photographer.
This is true whether there is a watermark or not.
As Oksana points out, watermarks can usually be easily removed.
Watermarking within the frame, in my opinion, is the best for professional photographers.
Of course, this means you have to make the frame.

Me…. I usually don’t bother with watermarks and I’m getting too old to worry about it.

PS…. Love the kid with the bag, Oksana. Gucci, as I recall. (The bag, not the kid.)
