Wonder if it perhaps possible to be able to select a larger watermark (spanning more of the width of the image) or the option to have it repeated all over the image (like Fotolia). I find that the current watermark is quite insufficient for protection on my black on white vector images, as you can not even see it (hidden behind the image).

I have moved it now a bit to the left, but depending on the specific image it sometimes is still hidden.  This would not have concerned me much if the previews where small, but you can download the images with Google as large as 786x1200 (quite large enough for a lot of uses) from 123RF.

Something you guys can please consider?

Hi Alex

This is the result of your site's bad watermark:

My image on your site through Google images:

Most of my images that I have found being used with watermarks on are from 123

Doesn't matter if you move it to the left, right, up, down... it's simply not accurate to mask the image.
Found several of my images used with watermark when i was a member of "123 give away".

Was trying very hard to get a bit of momentum behind my drive to get them to give us better protection, but I think the 3 lone voices in the dark will still not move them to spend any time, money or effort in doing anything about it.

Quite a shame considering their recent success and high standing as stock seller, but in my opinion branded as one of the worst protectors of our (their?) interest / property.....  :(

It's another form of marketing... giving away, but actually not ...  ???

Must really be annoying to crop those * watermarks out though Patric, maybe they should just remove them all together for maximum marketing exposure and just put at top edge "Donated by 123RF".....  ;D

Thank you Anglee. I think they have received about 4 of them so far. Absolutely no reaction or change.  >:(
