Watermark your Instagram Photos
"Watermark your Instagram Photos"
I have started putting a watermark on my Instagram pictures, and I am going to strictly follow this from now onwards.
Why I'm talking about this? Read below:
"𝗖𝗼𝘂𝗿𝘁 𝗥𝘂𝗹𝗲𝘀 𝗔𝗻𝘆𝗼𝗻𝗲 𝗖𝗮𝗻 𝗨𝘀𝗲 𝗬𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗜𝗻𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗴𝗿𝗮𝗺 𝗜𝗺𝗮𝗴𝗲𝘀, 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝗙𝗿𝗲𝗲" (Via Fstoppers)
Of course, this will bother us if anyone uses our pictures without giving any credits and notification. Unfortunately, we can not change the law, but we can do a few things.
Start putting watermarks in your Instagram posts. This will not ensure that your picture is safe, but at least this will give a layer of security to your pictures. If any third party embedded your Instagram post picture with their website, then the watermark is there to represent you and your work.
Also, you can edit copyright details in Lightroom (LR) if you use this for editing work. This adds metadata in the pictures when you export them.
I'm not talking about a bunch of people who can manipulate and remove watermarks. That is different and impossible to handle.
If you guys know any other way do share in the comment section. I'll spread your suggestions via my Instagram stories.
