I have put together a bit of a tutorial on Watermarking that can be
Link is "Protecting images from misuse".
While I can not claim it to be last word on the subject, it does cover the
File Format and Image quality,
I have not heard of a download that will be nothing but noise or static in
photoshop. This might be possible, but I'll bet that your image would
require special encoding and your visitor would need a special plug-in for
their web browser to view them. I you folks know of any othre useful
Image protection schemmes I would love to know about them, so I can make
the tutorial more complete.
PS- Yes, PhotoShop and Layers will do the trick. PhotoShop comes with
DigiMark filter Plug-ins. There use is explained in the tutorial.
