11 May 2021

Nowadays, watermarks have become a fundamental element for photographers who want to protect their images from falling into the “wrong hands” on the internet. Above all, they are designed to protect your work, and to ensure that your pictures aren’t used without your permission.  But they are also used to sign your creations (just like artists sign their work).

But if you decide to include watermarks on your photographs, below we show you various options about the different types of watermarks that are most-used by Arcadina users.
