If you are not a professional photographer there are two meaningful advantages you get from placing watermarks:
- Content protection
You surely have made at least once a brief search in Google Images. And you surely have seen series of images with watermarks going along after you entered search query. And most of you followed the the links to the ages these pictures are placed on. Moreover, when you see website’s name or logo on a picture it surely increases brand’s awareness and even citation.
It is fair to want to be mentioned if your content is shared or user on a foreign resource. However, this is something we rarely meet today – especially, when it is coming to images. So in order to ensure basic protection of your content you can place watermarks.
