ann Posted August 19, 2017 Share Posted August 19, 2017 Do you agree it would be a good idea to include image-specific info on Alamy's watermarks? It would make it easier for potential clients to find that exact image when it's seen in the wild. Also, importantly, it would help defeat watermarks-removal algorithms: GOOGLE created an algorithm to remove watermarks from stock images and its success depends largely on many, many watermarks being CONSISTENT. It's not enough to change the position of the watermarks. Differences in SHAPE (opacity helps, too) are needed also. Having watermarks automatically populated with specific info about the image - ex. Copyright holder and image # - would be win-won dealing with this watermark removal algorithm. Some agencies already include such image-specific info. EDIT: SUGGESTIONS forum didn't appear when I created this Topic, using my iPhone or iPad, so I jumped to Wrong conclusion that the forum was gone. Now that I'm using my computer, I see that forum, which is where I should have posted this. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
