I few months ago, maybe 6 or more we announce we wanted to and will be watermarking all photos in the gallery here at GliderCENTRAL. Last night, well early this morning as it's 5 am, I just finished upgrading the gallery software. This upgrade now allows us to automatically add the watermark when the photo is uploaded by a member. This watermark actually will not damage the original photo as I can remove and replace it as needed. This is all being done in an effort to protect our members personal photos of their gliders from people who copy them and claim them as their own. I will be applying the watermark to existing photos soon. I may want to change the positioning/look of the watermark so it cannot be cropped out, this is something I will look into. If you would like to take a look at a watermarked photo from the gallery, you can view one here

I have one comment... if I were wanting to steal that photo, all I would do is crop out that watermark. Right?
It might take me 2 minutes to do that.

Ha, sorry i sound suspicious but really i just wanted to point that out.

And I hope im not raining on your parade frown

I don't know about that watermark... I mean, it's not going to be cropped out of the pic easily. But it's so big it's covering the gliders faces in that pic..

agree I agree with JR....

The Watermark is too visable.... maybe if you can make it a bit more transperant... it wont cause so much affect on the Picture.....

Here is the same watermark(has not been changed) on a different picture I have spent the time trying to adjust the contrast so it will work on both dark and light photos. As stated this watermark does not damage the original photo, it is sad that this needs to be done. The only other option is to remove the gallery period. I don't have the time to sit here and personally custom move each watermark for all 12,000 photos we have in the gallery plus every new one that gets uploaded.

I think the watermark looks good. It is too bad it has to be used. Awesome job! I wish I knew how to do watermarks on my pics for my site.

Eddie,


How about an option slection for the users to select if they want there picture watermarked? For those that don't want them marked have them check a box to leave the water mark off....


I'll PM you my next ?

That will not work either. What I am gona try and work on is to allow the members to move the watermark from its default location, but don't know how long that will take to get going. Now I have received several complaints and questions about this. Here it is, if you don't like the watermark please let me know and I will send you all your photos that are not marked and delete your gallery, if you don't like it do not upload your photo to the photo of the week or anywhere in the gallery, it is as simple as that. Our privacy statement says every image, text, etc that is put on out site is protected by the copyright. People complain (which is very understandable) when their photo gets stolen, and this is the only solution then shutting down the gallery. If this continues that is what will happen and everyone can use another service.

Thank you Cyndie and thank you who have supported this. The idea to watermark the albums came about a year ago. I decided not to continue as the old way to watermark would permanently fix itself to the picture. Now since we do not damage the real picture and can remove/move the watermark as I please I went ahead with it. I am working on marking the member galleries now. All the others are done, the member galleries are too big to mass mark. Cyndie I just did yours, if someone would rather not wait till I get to their gallery, please pm me and I will do it.

It sucks that its in the middle of the photo, but thats the only way to prevent someone from cropping it out. : ( Sad, but true.

Also kinda sounds like Eddie needs a hug!
