    I've just bought a Personal subscription level to MyPictureMarc. On
    DigiMarc's site it is stated that at this level I can watermark up to
    100 images. But I wonder if it's not just a bluff because I can't see
    how they may have any idea of how many images I have watermarked. Do you
    have any experience in this matter?

    You can watermark all you want, but you can only register 100 through them.

    What do you mean by saying "register"? How do I conduct a registration
    process? I thought all I have to do is to embed a watermark using a
    Digimarc plug-in.

  5. Hi!

    Though I see it unnecessary for a designer to have a personal
    digimarc, as most of the artwork is done for other people, I think the
    only one who may want a digimarc is the photographer who expects to
    sell his work to the others (and in this case he should remove
    digimarc as the pictures will be owned by others). However, the above
    100 images restriction could be done by hiding a counter somewhere in
    the registry or in the plug-in module itself, every time you embed a
    mark, increment is automatically added. If it is not the case, then it
    could be only a statement by which using digimarc for more than 100
    pictures will no longer be legal.

    I will highly appreciate someone who can convince me with the
    importance of digimarc and if somebody actually offset printed a
    digimarked photo for a certain reason.

    OK, let me.
    I sell cd's of graphics I create. I watermark them with digimarc.
    Last year I saw someone selling something similar and imagine my surprise
    when I saw 3 of my graphics in their cd. A quick check of the imbedded
    Digimarc watermark carrying my serial # confirmed they were mine.
    Now I get a royalty from his cd sales. He's lucky I didn't sure his ass.
    There, that is how Digimarc helped me.

  10. Hi again!

    Thank you for this explanation, but I'd like to ask how durable is
    that watermark and can it be changed without sensible degradation on
    the picture quality? Is it possible to have two different watermarks
    in a single image? How much it is dependable? Is there a wide client
    base for it? Does it has a history of success? Of course I know their
    website, but I'd rather prefer to hear from independent people...
    People who tried it and really benefited from it.

    Many questions, and I can barely find a Digimarc fan, so I must listen
    and learn.... Thank you for your patience, and highly appreciate
    answering me.

    I only use the electronically imbedded watermark that is not visible.
    You use their app to view the serial # that you assign the graphic.
    That is digimarc's main purpose, for identifying your proprietary items.
