Prevent Others from Hijacking Your Photo – Sign It!

One downside of posting pictures on the web is that it’s free for all to see and well… copy.  With just a click of the mouse your competitor or worse a scammer can copy the precious photo of your items and claim it for himself.
A sure way of preventing this is by signing your work.  Have big bold letters plastered across the photo so it would be impossible for others to claim your photos.  But do it in a stylish way.  Photoshop it if you can.  But if you don’t have a Photoshop, then drop by

It’s an online “Photoshop” editor that could edit your photo as good as any Photoshop can.  Best thing? You don’t even have to sign-up to use the service.  Just make sure your browser is equipped with the latest Flash software and you’re good to go.
Upload the photo on the site and click the Font icon on the Tools pane.  Write your name, your brand, or even or store’s URL as your signature.  Tweak a bit to your heart’s content.

On the Layers pane, right click your mouse and choose Flatten image.  This will merge your photo with your signature.  To finish, just save your photo and proceed in uploading it on your store.

For those who are adept in Photoshop, you can do many styles and clean your photo on this site.
Signing each photo may be a tedious task, but it would be worth it in the end.  You do not only prevent others from copying the photo, but you also promote your brand and claim the items as truly yours.
Happy Selling!
