Watermark is a best way to protect your photos on the web; where to place a watermark plays a vital role when it comes to its security aspect. Placing a watermark at the corner of the image does not provide much level of protection against online image theft. The one wish to steal your image can easily crop it off from the corner without thinking twice and also with least effort.

So the placement of a watermark plays a crucial role in determining the level of  protection against theft.

The watermark can be laid down at the center of the image, which provides higher security when compared to placing it at the distant corners. But make sure that the transparency of the image or logo you use as the watermark is set right, so that it does not ruin the image itself .

A good alternative to this approach is to use a tiled watermark. The watermark will be laid across the entire bounds of the image.It can be placed at an angle or in parallel to the image border . Transparency can be changed according to the users wish .It can be placed horizontally, vertically and diagonally. Tiled watermark provides higher level of security to pictures on the web compared to other types of watermarks.
