Watermark Your Pictures, Before Someone "Grabs" Them

Today is Tuesday, July 7, 2009. It has been cloudy with rain on and off for the last couple of days here. Laundry day so going to take a chance that it will not rain for a few hours.

I have been working outside, when able and enjoying the pool. It was a wonderful weekend, relaxing and productive at the same time.

For anyone that sells on line and takes their own pictures, I would strongly suggest that you take the extra step to watermark all of your pictures. This picture, the one above was "grabbed" from my Bonanzle booth. Now this is NOT a picture that I am proud of, however it was the best of what I had taken.

I was so ticked off when I seen it. The nerve of someone to just take something that belonged to me without even the courtesy of asking. So I retook the picture and watermarked them. I will continue to watermark all of my pictures a few every day until they are all watermarked with my site address.

There are lots of free programs that you can download and use to watermark your pictures. I found a few of them and the easiest one for me was waterMark V2. This one you can not use a picture to watermark, just text, which works well for me.

Blessing Moon is today, take time to invest in your visions. Brightest Blessings!


  1. Thank you for sharing the advice on watermarking pictures. I do not sell pictures myself but have seen others and thought they need to be marked. What would stop someone from just taking them. Thank you.

  2. These are not pictures to sell, they are pictures of items for sale. By watermarking it is a little harder to use them. They have to remove your watermark or try to, rather than just copy and save them to use.


It was nice of you to take time out of your busy day to stop by. Blessings to you and your family! (((HUGS)))
