    Default Newbie Questions on Pictures' License

    Hi all,

    I wish to ask about pictures that is post online. (etc. Flickr)

    Is there any way to prevent people from mis-using your photo or using the photos as their own?

    Please advise about this licensing and putting of photos online.

    Regards,
    Michael

    Only watermarking. But even then, many will leech it. Just look at the EDMW threads in HWZ.

    no, you can't prevent it, once you put your images online, and people click on and view it, it already loaded inside their computer, so is up to people how then want to do about your images.

    to discourage people of using your images is to make them useless, like very low resolution and watermark it heavily.
