I have some great photos from spotting I wish to share on the forum (under spotting of course), however I have a watermark with my Instagram account name in them. I want to make sure that the watermark isn’t against a forum rule before I post them. My concern is that could be interpreted as premonition. Thanks in advance for the answers.
Yes of course they are as Long as you aren’t advertising your (social media) 😉
Perfectly fine, we have no problem with you showing your media, as long as it’s not direct advertising.
So basically a small watermark is no problemo!
It’s fine by me, it’s fine by all
So since it’s small, the fact the watermark is literally my account handle is okay?
Couldn’t that be considered advertising my account? Sorry if it seems that I’m over thinking this, I’d rather not risk getting banned from the forum lol
That’s perfectly fine. As long as it isn’t practically covering the whole screen, you’re welcome to show your images as they are yours.
If you find it risky then I recommend not putting your Social media as a watermark but rather your name ;)
Trust me you wouldn’t be, you at most would be asked to remove them. The highest common chance would he the topic being closed 🙂
Well I’d rather keep my name on my Instagram account anonymous so I will refrain from posting them here. Thanks all!
I meant just put your IFC name as a watermark but as @Ecoops123 said above you shouldn’t have a problem at all 🙂
Trust me there is nothing wrong with your media in a small corner!!!
We all would love the photos that you have captured!
As long as you are following the rules of the spotting thread you are fine. You work hard for your shots and watermarks are acceptable. People have included links to their page for more photos without issue. You are also welcome to put the link in your bio like most people do.
If you start spamming of signing every post with “check out my other images at________” thats a different story.
Thanks all, I guess I’ll just be brave and post and if someone has an issue with the small water mark then so be it, ill just remove the post. I have so many photos with it, it be a pain to go back and change the watermark at this point. Be on the lookout for some photos this weekend, going out tomorrow. I’ll post some here after just in case I get a new favorite tomorrow!
Oh I have zero energy to spam, it’s why I left all the IF Facebook groups was due to spammers. I just am very careful about following the rules of the forum, thus this thread.
