PetaPixel

Copyright Embedding Tool for the Ultra Paranoid Photographer

If you’re sick of having your precious photographs ripped off and digital watermarking isn’t your thing, you can use this translucent copyright symbol to embed an obnoxious copyright symbol in all of your photographs! The mysterious Martin Nachtwey tells duckrabbit,

What I do is use a perspex © symbol that I dangle in front of the lens. It works a treat. No man, big or small, is stripping that mofo out of the image…I don’t see any problem in letting your readers in on the secret…all you need is a sheet of perspex, a jigsaw, a stick and some thread.

I have written all the small print onto the sign, so it is only readable under enlargement/reproduction. Another benefit of my method is that it works for film as well as digital!


Here’s how your awesome photographs turn out straight out of the camera:

Who’ll want to steal your images now? Booya!
