why I don't ugly up my photos with nonsense

15. Watermarks

This tip isn’t in direct relation to TAKING photos, but it does affect the look of photos.

When it comes to watermarks, the smaller the better. And if you can avoid using them, do. Chances are, unless you are a paid professional, there’s not much of a chance of your photos getting nicked.

But in reality, they won’t prevent your images from getting stolen. They only distract from the fabulous image that you’ve created, because once you’ve slapped a watermark all over it, that’s all the viewer will be looking at.

The only way you can prevent your images from being stolen is to not publish them on the internet.
