    I like the subtle "integrated" ones if you're going to bother at all. it's more like a signature on a painting.

    I'd still only then do it for show.

    I prefer the standard bottom right corner. The watermark itself could use an update. Pretty easy to draw a signature or a sweet stash in Photoshop and save (.PNG I think supports transparency?)

    I don't like the cursive/script look. It's often hard to read, and in my opinion, cliche.

    My two cents. When it's on my website, I don't watermark but I have my images set with embedded information. When I post to social media, I have my watermark small, in the bottom right corner with 50% opacity. I personally don't like watermarks that jump around in different positions of the image. I know someone who does that and while it's kinda creative, it just takes more time. Where I set Lightroom to place my watermark upon export (again I only do that for social media). Depending who the client is, I'll export without a watermark and then use Fundy to batch watermark another set of the photos to use on social media.
