So stop doing it! Really, It really takes no time at all, but I hate having to do it to your images…
Bold statement, huh? As the Photoshop Guy that’s focused on one mission – taking Photographers to the web- I’ve spent a lot of time wondering about the recent movement to make your pictures as ugly as possible with Watermarks. The practice has come to fever pitch in Photoshop CS5. Try as we must to share with you how awesome all of the other technology that Photoshop CS5 is bringing us, I invariably get the same question:
“With Content Aware Fill, can people remove watermarks even easier?” I usually tell people “Yup. But anyone with a decent amount of skill in the Clone (nee, Rubber Stamp) tool could have at your images just as fast. ”
You shouldn’t spend so much time worrying about watermarking your images. Anyone halfway decent will be able to rip them off, and you will be “DigiSlapped” 3 times.
