As the title suggests, do you think that LO should change their current watermark?

There are some that believe the current watermark is weak and encourages image thefts, while others believe that the watermark is fine and should be left alone.

What do you think???

I'm curious to know what people who vote NO think. I can understand being indifferent to the watermark problem, but what makes some people prefer the current watermark?

Regards,
Adelaide

My guess is that they are the LO employees or affiliates.

They will change the watermark so that it is more visible on the photos where it is hard to see.  I sent them an email and they have adjusted the watermark on some of mine.  Here's an example http://tinyurl.com/28tdmk

I just voted "NO" and the reason is shown in Sharpshots image here: http://tinyurl.com/28tdmk! I don't think that an image like this would be very attractive to buyers because of the watermark, SY

It would be fine with a more reasonable watermark though.  I only asked to be able to see the watermark.  This has gone from one extreme to the other.

Indeed, we don't have to go so extreme. 

FT had a good idea with the black and white options, according to the prevailing tone of each image.  Of course, the choice of their watermark is horrible.

No watermark = stolen images.

bulky watermark = NO stolen images

end of conversation...

Cannot believe they wasted time on this problem.  They should be working on getting some buyers to the site.  fred

Fred-
1. We didn't see it as a problem- we'll probably allow people to display images without a watermark.

2. We built a new processing engine with the latest release, so it changed without additional work.

3. While I like our engineers, they're stuck in bug fixes now, not marketing :)

and yes, we're marketing.

I'm on 17 Micro / Macro websites while I feel out my niche.   While sales have been slow at L.O.  I would rank it as my favorite "look".  My only issue is, I can't get the FTP to work.

LO recently underwent a major upgrade, and FTP has been temporarily disabled while the kinks are worked out.  It should be back up soon.
