Hello everybody!

Thanks for supporting me by reading this tutorial. I put this tutorial together in lights of the recent copy-cat scandals, in the hopes that I can help as many people as possible, to preserve their website content and their images.

What I Have Implemented

I have personally installed the WP CONTENT COPY PROTECTION plug-in, as well as found a way to watermark my images, all using free resources.

Why watermarking?

Although using the plug-in prevents others on the internet from copying and pasting your content and for downloading your images, images can still be screenshot, making your images at risk of theft.

Watermarking makes a faded strip of text appear onto the image, resulting in your image being completely theft-proof.

Our first step in this tutorial will be to look at the free tool we will be using.

Great training. We all ought to use this to brand our images and pics used with our site name or/and logo. There is wordpress plugin that does that.

Thanks Derek.

I didn't know there was plug-in that could help us watermark images. What's the name of it? Is it free? I definitely want to check it out... :)

Hi I have also got the wp copyright protection, but when someone visits a page there’s just this annoying pop up now that comes up every time you try to scroll down saying copyright protected. Hoping to find a way around it as it’s annoying to me let alone visitors lol. X

It does hinder the readability of the page doesn't it. It makes me want to get rid of mine, but then Im now worried about people copying my work also, doh! Lol

I understand.

I deplore pop ups. And I hate messy clutter which is why I never liked Ad sense appearing through my blogs. Ugh. I now have a little ad sense widget running all the time but it is on the right side bar and very unobtrusive.

Just more learning curves :)

That actually sounds like a great idea! I was kind of gutted being unapproved by adsense at first but after seeing some general pages on the internet with their ads all over the place it kind of put me off a bit, as you’re right it can look a little messy. I’m leaving off on them for a while but will definitely look into that widget when it comes to it so thanks for the idea! :)

Hmm, that's strange. I use the plug-in but I don't get any pop-ups. The one in the picture is what I am using.

Anytime, Nnakife. It's what I personally do to watermark my images, so I'm just hoping to help others protect their images too. We all work so hard on our content.
