Watermark my photos

We get a lot of customers asking about getting their photos stolen and how they can protect themselves from people stealing them. There are a few tools you can use to put watermarks on your original photos before you upload them to your website. However, you should be aware that watermarking is no longer a effective way to completely stop people from stealing if they really want to use your photo (or steal it).
