    I have been having an ongoing debate with myself as to what my watermark should be. I mostly do corporate stuff for adds and etc so I don't usually need watermarks..

    But I have been having more and more offers for senior pics, and baby pics and etc. With those I didn't put watermarks..but I have been thinking that I should so my pictures don't get stolen..

    Now here is my dilemma I have a really long first and last name.

    Felisha Nesahkluah

    Now most of my friends call me Fel so I wouldn't mind using it but still..

    Fel Nesahkluah

    is still pretty long. I used felphoto for a while but I don't think is to professional..

    My signature is even longer than it looks!!

    What should I do?!?

    I just put "Cecillia's Photography copyright 2007" and my logo on the stuff that pertains to horse stuff.
    Felisha Nesahkluah doesn't seem to long to me personaly.

    yeah but "Felisha Nesahkuah Photography Copyright 2007" is kindof long to be having at the bottom of a picture. lol

    OH! You are putting these on printed images. Sorry. My bad, I just put my WM on digital images.
    What about your initials only?

    hmmm.. idk about that.. I tried that but my initials look funny when I write them lol..

    When I use a border I have no problem putting my first and last name but when you do senior and baby pics and stuff they don't want borders and they don't usually look good..

    most of the stuff I do can't have watermarks on them.. But some that I'm doing now I want them to have it..

    What about just your first or just your last name?

    And sorry if this is a thread jack but you put a WM on prints you sell to clients or just the proofs?
    I'm still learning hehe. Please forgive my ignorance!

    well it may help not to write out copyright and just use the symbol
    ©. You could do something really simple with your initials. Those two letters are pretty easy to be creative with.

    Well I mostly do corporate stuff. like posters for pizza hut and etc. those type of things you don't put WM on.. Now if I do stuff for modeling agency's depending on what they use them for is wether or not i put WM on them. If its going in a mag I don't. If a model comes to me for a portfolio I do. Now that I joined the site I also don't want my pics stolen.. or anything so I'd use a WM.

    But when I do shoots for clients and don't put wm i make them sign saying they WON'T have anyone claim them as their own and that they will give me credit somewhere.

    I used felphoto before and i want something diff.

    It's located in the Character Map (Start- Programs-Accessories-system tools). If you click on the advanced view, it will show you the keyboard characters to use or you can just copy it.
