Copyright on Photographs

  Farleyjim 19:20 09 Sep 2004

I do quite a bit of aerial photography and have given presentations to clubs and societies. I understand that there is a method which one can use to prevent people copying or printing from a CD.(I sometimes lend CDs to people.) I use Photoshop for my picture editing but I cannot see anything in there, so perhaps somebody out there can tell me what to do. Many thanks.

click here in truth it is impossible to stop copying of photos. If you can see it on a screen and are a bit OK with image manipulation you can copy anyhting.

If you can't stop it, i would have thought that the best second choice was to only lend out low res copies or only put low res on the web. the quality of the composition can be seen, but it's not large enough to to be useful?

I have heard of watermarking of digital imiges. but will have to bow to gandulf's opinion as to how effective this is, it's his area of expertize.

Gandalf and Dorsai have got it in one
Copying and printing cannot be stopped.

The onl is to put your mark across each image in a suitable type face. and make those images that go out such low rez they are only fit for screen work.
