After discovering one of my own photos ripped off and used by someone on Twitter (quite by accident) I realized the importance of what I post and watermarking my images.  I discovered one of the best tutorials by Darlene of "Her View" on how to create a beautiful transparent watermark using your own logo in both Photoshop and Lightroom.

  2. I think initially I would be flattered if someone stole one of my photos and then I would be mad! Watermarking is definitely a good idea and I think they look nice if done right! Thanks for the info.

    1. hi Julie - I didn't know what to think. It was sort of an invasion of privacy and feeling that our images are our property. But this tutorial is so thorough for both PS and LR. Please check it out, and Darlene's site!
