Watermarking Photos

Post by Mr Onion » Sat Oct 01, 2016 11:06 am

As Jazz Club has pointed out here Anonymous @ Krystal Klub posting photos of Serial Numbers on product packaging may help the ePay scammers. To help prevent photo stealing, you can 'watermark' the photo before uploading or attaching it. http://watermarkphotos.net/ makes it very easy to do and does not require any software to be installed locally. Simply go to the site, select your image, enter the text, its size,colour etc and download it to your machine. Then you can upload or attach as usual.

I hope this helps

Seeing this thread reminded me of my workmate who sold a pair of B&W speakers on EBay. He called me some weeks later to show me that his speakers were already back up on EBay for sale, using his photo from his sale. We discussed it and he decided to call the guy who bought them, who told him they were still in his home and not for sale. As the photos were clearly his he contacted EBay who took the listing off. Scammers had copied his photo, so a good call by Stu. Definitely something I hadn't considered.

Keith,
One reason when people are selling Naim boxes only ever give the first few numbers of the serial number because you can tell what year it was made.
Give the lot and scum scammers copy.

Excellent idea James. :smt023
