We’ve just spent the last week or so going through some of our products and watermarking the images.

We had thought about watermarking our images, but then didn’t think anyone would want to ‘borrow’ the images, and although we haven’t seen any of the images we have taken on other websites, we just thought it would be a good thing to do.

It would be annoying if we had spent time taking our own pictures of our products and then someone coming along and using it for themselves, so by watermarking the image we can hopefully deter this, and it looks good too I think — alot of the suppliers we use don’t supply their own pictures, which I wouldn’t expect them to, so it’s up to us to make it appealing enough to you the customer so you buy it!

And if you would like to know the piece of software we used to helps us with the watermarking … the company is called Picture Shark … big thumbs up to them, the software is easy to use and puts out great images!

Right enough of that, I’m off to take a nice deserved rest…
