What do you use to add a watermark to your photos and videos? I don't like the ones that go all the way across the image or stay up throughout the video, but do you think they're necessary?

There is serious debate as to whether it is helpful to watermark your photos. Indeed, no photographer wants to see their work reused online without permission or stolen. I think that watermarks helped encourage print sales before the digital era, so it may not be necessary to do that now!

Maybe I am a bit old school, but I prefer to use watermarks, on both photos and videos. I don't like to have my work stolen after spending hours on it.

I do use watermarking software. My work is expensive and I've had brides try to make copies for free. This is my livelihood, so I protect it.

I don't watermark everything I produce. I only watermark my finished product and that's more about spreading my name than keeping the customer from making duplicates. Maybe I should be more careful.
