I just want to say that I know my watermark is placed in an intrusive place, and I'm sorry if this is offensive to you. But I know people will steal photos if they can or crop out watermark if it's placed around the edges, whether images are good or bad, and I cannot and do not tolerate that because I put a lot of time and effort in creating my images. I've actually seen a Flickr member's photostream filled with stolen images; the person posted them as if they were his/her own photographs. I noticed many of the images, so I contacted the original photographer. This is why I put my watermark and upload re-sized images. It's just a shame...

 

If you want to find out if your images are stolen or used without permission, there is a very useful tool: jarred.github.com/src-img/

Go to this link and fave this page (so that it goes to your bookmark bar). Then, go to your Flickr page (or any other websites with pictures you want to search), go to the bookmark bar and click on the link. The pictures on the webpage will show double question mark on top of the images, so click on the double question mark.

This will search that image. There are a few times when this didn't work on Flickr page (must be a bug or something), but try again a few days later.
