Watermarking in pics

Postby Hefe » 02 Oct 2011, 02:27 •  [Post 1]

Well I don't know where to put this so I stick it in here...

The watermarking of the photos right in the center of the pic is the most annoying thing I've seen on any forum, really distracting. It's so annoying that I'm sure there is a "logical" reason for it.... doesn't matter, a truly bad idea.

Have a nice day!

If your name is the same as I remember off another forum then I'm sure you know a lot of pics were stolen off that other forum's trip reports and ended up on pay website without the original posters consent. So we realized we needed to make sure that did not happen with our forums members.

That watermark in the middle is there to ensure there is no way to crop around it in effect guarding against theft. Most of our users who contribute pics are happy with it since it ensures that their work which they spent their hard earned money on isn't used by someone else to profit off them without their permission.

So annoying in this case means the security system is working exactly as intended.

Have a nice one!
