~ A Daunting Task ~

I just wanted to say, "THANK YOU", to all who offered their support and advice for my recent dilemma. I spent the entire day yesterday reading tutorials and figuring out how to utilize the software I have to create a watermark tool. I have begun the daunting task of placing the watermark on every single picture in my inventory. I don't know how many pictures it is but there are two photos for every product I have, a small one and a large one, so needless to say, that will keep me busy for many hours to come. In the long run it will be worth it I suppose, but my main concern is will it affect the quality of shopping my customers enjoy? Here are a few that I've already done. I made the watermark somewhat faint in hopes of not ruining the look of the photo....what do you think?....do you think it messes up the pics too much or will it be ok?
Thank you again for all of your support!

Looks great, Janet ;)
I know it's a task...but at least people won't be so apt to take your photos now....or display them as their OWN!
It doesn't take away from your photo at all! You did a great job!

...oh and that 'thing' on the my shelf with the pineapple stencil is my cheese box I re-did! :)
thanks for liking it!

Have a great day!

hugs-Kath

Im sorry you have to go thru all that. People are just rude and inconsiderate taking someone elses pics. It definately looks ok though and doesnt distract from the pics.

Your pictures are fine & the watermark will be well worth it in the long run. I am going to start doing that soon myself. Have a wonderful day, my friend.

Hi Janet,
I think that your pictures look great and you can see your products perfectly.
I know that it is a task, but it will be well worth it in the end...so that no one can use your photos.

Hi Janet ~~ So sorry you are having problems...with your pictures. I just checked ebay..and that person has nothing right now for sale...so maybe ebay made her pull all the items. I hope the watermakeing does the trick for you.

Hi Janet,
I'm glad to hear your son is doing better. That sounds painful! We never stop worrying about and caring for our kids.
The bittersweet is even more beautiful now that more of the pods have opened. In fact I bought 7 bittersweet vines to plant in my yard. Hopefully they will grow quickly. Have a great day. Hugs, Loretta
