thanks, Linda - I am amazed that there just aren't any watermarks on all that artwork on Behance. I added a copyright notice on one of my pieces, as I don't own it (I have permission to use the art for my promotion).
It has bothered me enough to not post anything else, and I am considering adding watermarks anyway. Maybe I'll start a trend!

There is a lot of see-sawing opinions about watermarking. Some Fine Art Galleries and Exhibitions don't allow watermarking, they say it turns off collectors.. But I've seen these past 5-10 yrs that there has been a shift towards watermarking. Some organizations insist on it now. I believe it has become a necessity. Artwork can be copied via screenshots so not metadata can be attached, and theft seems a bit more rampant nowadays. I can't say I like to look at artwork with a watermark plastered over the good part, but I do it regardless. When a collector contacts me, they don't usually ask for a non-watermarked large version so they can see detail.
My 2.5 cents,

Hi - Does anyone out there use Adobe's Behance? I have a few images there, but I am concerned about watermarking. It appears that no one else uses any kind of watermarking, and you really need to upload high-resolution images for them to look decent on the website. Do people just not worry about this anymore or...??
