i have seen quite a no. of csers who put big water marks or signature in their photos, i feel that it is annoying or distracting.

some put the water marks or signature quite discretely, i feel this is good, although can see it, but does not annoy or distract viewers from enjoy looking at the image.

It's personal ..... some like it big, some like it small ..... but i don't think it is necessary for my images (no body wants!) .... :bsmilie:

but is it not better if it is more discrete it will not have adverse effect on your photos and still serve its purpose?

Big watermark, distracting the beauty of the photo.

Small watermark, afraid of being leeched.

My solution: post photos that are not greater than 800x600... not good enough for commercial print. Not even good enough as desktop wallpaper...Only uses: 4R prints and internet images.

I'll be honoured if people print my images! ;)

yes, i understand the possibility of photo leech. but low res, place the near to subject but not too obvious (somtime can be difficult).

anyway, imo, photo being posted should be already correctly cropped (to the photog's vision). cropping more will make the photo less appealling to the viewer, so even if the marking is not near the subject, it should not matter too much.

for some people,

SIZE does matter.
that is so true.. :sweatsm:

maybe for them the main feature is the watermark? the rest of the photo is just decor :think:
