How to Watermark Photo

The arts are part of a vast industry that includes painting, dance, and photography. If you take professional photos and share them online, I am sure you have wondered what is the best watermaker for your images.

If you explore popular pages with photos or other content, you have probably noticed that all of their pictures have watermarks. Content creators watermark their photos for various reasons. For example, many photographers have found fan pages or other users who post their content without giving them credit. Sadly, this happens too often in society, with people stealing content from small and large creators to pass off as their own.

Adding a watermark to photos they have shared online protects their work from being misused on other platforms.

During this feature, we look at the importance of adding watermarks to photos you shared and how to add watermarks to photos.

Let’s get started.

Part 1: Should I Watermark My Photos?

Should I watermark my photos? To answer this, let’s break a few things down.

You probably do not need to watermark your photos if:

● You do not share your photos publicly but on a private social media account for friends and family.

● You do not use your images for work or part of your art.

● Do not have a large following on social media.

● Do not do photography as a hobby or business.

● Only share pictures about your life or selfies.

Now, after mentioning these few things, I want to clarify that people can still choose to use your photos to pretend to be you or post them without your permission. If you feel like this would upset you, adding a watermark to images you shared would be wise.

When should I add a watermark to my photos?

● When you plan on starting a photography business.

● You have a public social media account.

● Share photos that you take as a photography hobby.

● Have a large following.

● Planning to gain more followers.

● Do not want images posted without consent or credit.

● When you post amazing pictures.

When you venture into the world of photography, it is always wise to watermark your photos. Your watermark photos will bring the viewer’s attention to your page. Photography is an art; when a painter sells his painting, his signature will always appear. A painting without a signature will not have as much value as one.

Photography watermarks help you grow your business and follower count, and when people love your images, they will follow your page. In addition, a watermarked image on a page other than yours will allow the viewers to credit your content.
