I've had a couple of instances now where I've found someone has used one of my images without permission.

Because of the Photobucket problem I am re-uploading my pictures to other storage places and I want to "watermark" them so that I can find if there is any infringement in the future. They already have a visible watermark on them.

What I want to know how to do is to put a unique string of text in to the picture information (EXIF data?) so that I can search for that to pull the images up in Google Images.

Am I missing something or isn't easier just to put the image in Google images? I believe a while back someone was publicising a batch process to do this? You can add copyright info via many cameras. I'm not sure its a very time effective pursuit tbh and bear in mind someone could easily strip out the exif data.

I can search the for images one at a time..............  I was thinking there might be a quicker way to do it.

Realised that EXIF can be stripped, but might not happen every time.

Its a bit pricey!  360 for 10000 images - I had that number in PB........

I am amazed with all the photographers out there that there isn't an easy way of finding infringements  :o ::)
