Absolutely gorgeous work :). I love moss sooo much! It's so magical and fairy like :). Would you mind if I featured some of your works in a group On DA?

What a beautiful old tree! :)
I am sure that a watermark would spoil the photo of that living monument. It needs no man-made features.

But I have to agree with the capital letters. It is a bit irritating and hits my eyes ;)
I would say that you cannot prevent your works from being stolen when they are once put into the internet. There are always some people who have the mind to dress themselves up with the feathers of others. But they are poor-minded as they cannot produce anything on their own. As long as they are not caught red-handed, some will do - despite of watermarks and such things.

would have to disagree with you on stealing art as have already proved it can be stopped three times and now my new olympus has a code embedded in it,should anybody try to remove an embedded mark it will alert olympus who will alert me,so some companys can be good guys,and the age old dont say where and when taken save on master disc with all details and post recorded to yourself and leave unopened unless you have to prove it your work,its age old does work and most of the foreighn web pages who steal work are based in London when challenged,all the foreighn language speel is a smoke screen to put people off of trying to sue them,I am lucky I come frome a legal backgroudn but it would be much easier if d/a made thre own watermark harder to remove,my brother who is a computer geek removed d/a mark in 2 mins,some security there!,.
as for the wonderful tree its ever evolving last year it was in one piece this year alas strong winds have bought down aa huge bough,but it makes a great deer hault,and will be here long after I am kicking up the daisys,may thanks for your comments they are well metxxxx

Two things: I do not see a watermark ANYWHERE in this image
....and you really shouldn't be typing in all caps, it makes 99% of all viewers completely ignore what you're saying, as all that appears to be, is shouting and whining, and no one wants to bother with that.

so you imbeded a code, but it doesn't prevent screencaptures, nor digital manipulation....

With screen capture unless I put the code in the code will appear across the picture is blown up any more than a thumbnail,and as I said if I caught anybody messing and thieving my artwork I have all the proof I need to take them or the website to court to sue,its put on here to show not to be stolen ,same as you leave nice things in your home but you do not expect your houseguests to walk out the door with them,because they were there,instead of thieving they should get off there lazy arses grab a camera or a pen,if they have a nano of a brain and get out and enjoy the beautifulo world we live in,not rip off others who may not have the legal knowledge at there fingertips I do,and we are making our artwork a listed company,costs very little,but would cost a thief an awful lot more there are ways and ways and many more people should be told on D/A,that they do not have to pay out a fortune to protect there works,negatiivity always strikes me as an odiuos quality,regards

I think you're mistaking metadata for hardcoded watermarks - no need to lose all concept of grammar and punctuation over it.

Just to see how well your hardcoding concept works, I would believe you would have attempted it yourself by now, just to check to see if it works. I can tell you this, your watermark is NOT visible, it does NOT prevent a person from using the "PrintScreen" button on their keyboard, which removes ALL coding and information, as it is simply capturing what lies on your screen. It does NOT prevent a person from using the GoogleChrome extensions that capture the web page you are browsing. It does NOT prevent right-clicking.

Your image here, does NOT have a watermark at any viewable size.

If you have paid for a company to imbed the coding into your image through their software, THEN you would have a hardcoded watermark, and I'm not even all the sure that DA supports this concept - that option all lays out on the host's capabilities and allowances for its users.

I'm sorry, but you have absolutely no protection on your image here.

You should consider this:
Rather than believing me to be a house guest that is thieving your items off your bookshelf. YOU are putting your works into a professional gallery, and professional galleries do not allow photography of any kind within their doors, for the protection of the artist. In the digital gallery world, there are SO MANY ways of stealing works, that believing your Olympus metadata coding will prevent someone from taking your works from you, and that Olympus will actually notify you of EVERY right click, and EVERY screencapture, is utter naivety.

There are a few tests you should run on your DA-uploaded images before claiming they're thief-proof:

Right-click and save-as the image; did a watermark show up? Did any of the metadata come with it?

Using that same saved-as image, right click and open in Notepad, you will find a TON of coding in there. Is YOUR personal information, or the camera's information even visible? If it were, it would be right in the beginning, or right at the end.

Use the "prntscrn" button on your keyboard and paste it into MS Paint, Photoshop, PaintShopPro. Did the watermark or metadata show up in there?

Use a GoogleChrome extension, and capture the entire website. Did any of your claimed protection show up there?


NONE of this is an attack, merely observation and point of fact. If you don't want your works stolen, don't depend on a company giving you an advertising gimmick to protect your ass.

If you want the only 'true' protection of your work, impress your OWN watermark onto every image before posting it online. See one of my works for example: [link] (YES it's a DA link) At least at this point, if a person REALLY wanted to reproduce my image, they'd have to spend HOURS clone-stamping it out.

Another fact I want you to consider. You cannot sue a person in another country. The most that could happen, is that their ISP MIGHT get in trouble (if that country holds laws enough to cover that) or that their membership is revoked...and guess what? Five minutes after being denied access, they can create a new account. I don't know how long you have been on the Internet, but I'm quite certain I have been around on it a lot longer than you have, and have seen plenty of the ugly that people will play, when they are in a domain that has no face.

Were you to bother doing your research, as those in 'legal professions' are REQUIRED to do, you would have learned, that Overseer is my husband.

You've proven many of my points today. Thank you.

See the comment written on the bottom of the page,our work fromnow on will carry its own copyright even gallery exibs,as I stated I am in the lucky position of being in the legal proffesion and have friends who like to tackle copyright cases and cause a stir,as for sueing I wouldleave that to another dept at work,and any ip addy can be traves I have a friend in the states who works for the gov there and can track an ip to 5 metres of use,hacking I know but allowable in proving who is stealing what,having checked with olympus on my new 600 they have assured me the only person who can remove the code at source is myself,and it would take an artthief to much time and effort to remove it.the olympus pics on here are e300 or my new and much liked lumix,but copyrighted it will be as theft is still theft,and anybody stupid enough to try will find themselves in the soup so to speak,I dont use photoshop or any prog as I believe the pic should be as it comes of the camera,and as I have quoted,just because you admire nice things doesnt give you the right to think you can have it,perhaps its time for others to go get a life and stop hitch hiking a ride on others,would make us a much nicer species,
As for being an attack,have faced worse in court and the prison service,
But thank you for your observations
regards

You have not read a single word I've typed, have you?

I said SCREENCAPTURE. NIKON nor OLYMPUS can track someone's use of 'prntscrn' NOR can they track anyone's use of a browser extension. You can go ahead and rely on a company to catch all the artistic prowlers, if you so wish to believe that your photography's fate is well off in the hands of a third party, that is your problem to face.

Those of us to have faced artistic theft, of a very real aspect, such as unpermitted photographs of work presented in a physical gallery, know and understand that you cannot expect the hosts of a gallery, be it digital or physical to 100% protect your work.

To give you an example of how simple it could be for someone to take your work and manipulated to the point that you could not prove it was ever your's they'd stolen:

Viewer sees a photograph of your's they like, say, this tree. They know they cannot view it at a higher resolution than what you have chosen to do so on DA, but that's ok, they'll create something that fits their criteria. Using a screencapture method, they copy your work, put some girl on a rope swing hanging on the branch, they add grass reeds and some birds in the trees in the background. They alter the intensity of the moss on the trees, maybe even completely removed the forest in the background and add their own surreal appearance. By this point, the ONLY bit that looks remotely like your photograph, is the out-of-focus branch that is closest to the viewer. There is no imbedded tag at this point, no evidence that this was ever your photograph they used as a base.

I have a difficult time believing you're in a business of 'legal profession' as your inability to provide full, complete and structured sentences, would never make me consider you to be professional anything. You seem to love to throw the 'I have friends in high places' concept around, as if it were going to scare people away - this will NEVER scare people who do not care. They WILL find a way past you, and your 'legal friends' will be sitting on their hands, and not able to do more than shrug at you.

I have been a probabtion officer for nearly all my life my partner is a civil lawyer dealing in litigation,never believe what you see on paper at face value,and if I was to right in Gaelic,it would be correct and you would spend hours on google translate,trying to make head or tail of it,and google translate is painful to say the least,I am lucky enough to have letter after my name,in the correct order,worked hard for,and even luckier to have friends in high[and low places]do not bother to question sombodys credentials,when you seem to be getting your arse in a cramp about something which has been easily resolved,we have got our own copyright name and logo,job done,properly and legally,it would seem you and Mr overseer [I found out he was your other half,I just wondered when either of you would be good enough to say you were swinging from the same tree]took a wee while,you both seem to have a vested interestin being negative about anybody trying to do their own thing in stopping art theft,which makes the legal side of me think,maybe you are one of the D/A faceless people who count penny's in an ivory tower?or just live in the negative world of assuming you know all,and see nothing.....just an observation,not an assumption,I will leave those to you.
regards.
