Learn How To Prevent Photography Theft Online | Tips & Techniques

   So you have uploaded your photos and just realized that everyone who see's them can copy them. How are photographers supposed to get noticed if all of their work is getting copied or stolen. Or better yet, how do you even know if your photos have been used without your permission? In this video tutorial I will discuss options and my solutions to finding the best balance of visibility and security.



About this photography tip:

   First I would like to put a huge shout out to Photographer and all around great guy Eric Rossi "The Guy With The Eye"[1] for bringing this to my attention a few months ago.  Photographers work hard to get "that shot", photos used to pay the bills. So when people take advantage and use photos without our permission. Its just plain steeling. But in many cases these days it can get confusing even for the most honest of folk which images on the internet can and can not be used. Google Images can have a lot to blame for this. But that same Google images[2] can be used to also find out if anyone else is using your image. I will show you how to search for your image and I will also discuss my techniques for reducing the likely hood of someone actually using your work for commercial use.

Learn How To Setup Identity Plate & Watermarks In Lightroom 5 | Video Tutorial

Branding is important for business growth and this tutorial will help you start setting up Adobe Lightroom 5's identity plate, plus step you through adding watermarks with in Lightroom's built in watermark tools to display your branding and copyrights on your images.


About this tutorial:

   This is another tutorial were I am focusing on the ins and outs of Adobe Lightroom. So many tutorials show photographers how to work in the develop module, but few show anything else about Lightroom. So I am going through every detail of Lightroom and teaching about every detail of the program. In this video tutorial I focus on two things, the Identity Plate and Watermarks. Now I have combined these for two reasons, one they are both about branding and two the ID plate tutorial would be ridiculously short. But since they are simple, I am at least able to provide solid setup detail for anyone needing to use these features in Lightroom 5.

Many photographers are taking to the skies with quad copters and other various unmanned aircraft to get amazing views for both video and still photos. But looks like this could come to an end as the US pushes to put strict limits and force registration of these air craft.
