Here is a photo someone had sent in from LinkedIn by photog Anne Geier.
This is what you photogs should strive for online. Decent res and a mini, unobtrusive, classy watermark. (If you even want a watermark.)
Some of you send in crappy photos to start with, make them low pixelated res, then they have a giant, ugly watermark all over it. With my own work, I use no watermarks. I’m sure you will agree my photos are not easily confused with other photogs work. And a simple Goggle image search will let the inquirer know who is the author of the photo.
C’mon, your sunsets and roses are a dime a dozen. People can go on Flickr, Wiki Commons or Google and get millions and millions of roses and sunsets for free. For some reason photogs seem to think their photo is the end-all. Seldom is it the case.
Don’t sent in low res, common as dirt, giant ugly watermarked pix. It just shows you don’t know what you are doing and are a beginner.
