When placing your watermark try to put it in an area that does it is not easy to remove; for example, place a part of it on the object of the photo and part in the background.
If the object is a person put part of it on a leg or arm and the rest in the background area.
6. What should I use as a watermark?
Again this is your choice but you should think about it clearly and make sure it is something you can stick with.
Artists sign their work, even photographers can sign their name as a watermark.
Whatever you use you need to be sure it fits your work/company so later you won’t want to change it.
The more you change it the more confusing it is for your clients. You want people to see it an immediately know that this is your work.
