What is a watermark? How can I protect my images from theft by copying?
- Your original image is never available to viewers who see only a screen-sized image; the full-sized image is parked on our servers and only used when someone prints a photo.
- When uploading your images, set up a watermark that adds the word PROOF in the middle of every photo. Even if someone manages to copy the photo from the screen, they will only capture a picture that contains the watermark, "Proof" in the middle of each photo. You can choose three sizes: larger sizes offer more protection but are distracting to the viewer.
Three different sizes of watermarks
To change, add, or remove watermarks
Sorry, but you will need to upload the image again to change, add, or remove the watermarks because the presentations are created at the point of upload. Watermarks create two additional files: screen and thumbnail images with the word "proof" that are displayed only to your guests.
