Watermark

It's a cruel, cruel world out there. I've started adding a watermark to all the pictures I post on this blog and elsewhere on the internet. The reason? There are folks out there who steal pictures and use them with ill intention other places on the web. By adding a watermark, it makes it difficult for internet thiefs to do their thieving. It's just safer.

Did you have a bad experience or know someone who has? I never heard of this problem before, and would be curious to know how prevalent this is....

I did not personally have a bad experience. I know one person from on-line who had pics of her daughter with Down Syndrome stolen and made a mockery of. Also a recent imposter was exposed on a forum I go to, and she had stolen pics to pretend to be a mom of a premie with Down Syndrome. I'm not as worried about pics of ray or I or Calvin, but I am worried about pics of Charlie being stolen and used to make fun of people with disabilities. It's just a precaution.

I may be starting this myself. I am so livid about all this....you can just never be too careful!

I started doing it too. I hate it, it's time consuming but I'd rather do it and try to prevent it than do nothing and end up a victim!
