What do you watermark your photos with for advertising?

If I am not mistaken, I was not allowed to watermark my photos with my email address as Zillow would not allow emails anywhere in the copy or photos. I don't think they allow a phone number on the photos either but I am not sure.

I have currently watermarked them with just the first part of my email and the room name.

Thank you for your time. --73.190.xxx.xxx

Hi Vee, hank you for your reply.

I did use paint that is on Microsoft. I was wondering what you put as a watermark. Do you use your business name or something along those lines?

Mapleaf18, thank you for your reply as well.

What do you put as a watermark, such as a business name, phone number, ect? --73.190.xxx.xxx

6x6 biz name-- lots of places won't let you put your phone number, etc on the watermark. --64.246.xxx.xx

If you just put your business name it won't keep the picture from being stolen and reused. A phone number would be best but may not be allowed... Is that a new rule? What else do folks ghost on the pictures for protection from fake ads? --172.58.xx.xx

I put an email address on them - the email I want them to inquire to.

In my experience, Zillow won't allow contact information in the description, but if it is in a photo, it gets in.

See my post titled "watermark" on April 7 --68.229.xxx.xxx

I put business name and phone number. Next time it goes across the middle since last time they cropped it from the photo and ram a scam ad. I use Zumper and Craigslist and havenít had an issue with the phone number. --2.32.xxx.xxx

I use starwater mark (free version) and put biz name and phone # smack dab across the middle of the picture

So far zillow has not complained --71.69.xx.xx

Thank you everyone for the replies thus far.

Last year Zillow pulled my add because they did not like that I had my email on the pictures. I had to replace the pictures so that they would relist the add.

myob, there is something that you are not saying here. Why do you ask that question? --73.190.xxx.xxx

I would think the best thing to use would be your website address if you happen to have a website.

If you are not allowed to put any sort of contact information, then that limits the value of the watermark

If you are a landlord who shows units in person, you could put, "do not send money, landlord shows the rental in person".

There is only so much you can do to save the greedy tenants from themselves.

I've actually gone up to a house that was for sale and there was a big sign in the window that said "This house is not for rent. You have been scammed" --76.178.xxx.xxx

A couple weeks ago, I tried the watermark on my images. I put my website as the watermark. I noticed that my ad on Zillow was removed a few times. I just relisted it each time. The first time was after 12 hours, the second time was after a couple days, the last time was after a week. Zillow never contacted me about a problem with my listing. And I didn't have a problem relisting it. Never had that happen before, so I wondered if it had to do with my watermark but I really have no idea why. --72.130.xxx.xx

I wonder if they would let you put on (XXX) Area code

Aka the NPX? That would slow down the overseas phone call fraud other than phone number spoofing. --64.246.xxx.xx

Mapleaf18, that might work.

I just put a business name and a room description. --73.190.xxx.xxx

6man,

I use Visual Watermark. First several are free. I paid $18 once to register and not have their name at the bottom of the photos.

Super easy, drag and drop, saves directly into that houseís digital folder. Can also watermark videos.

I use my web address because I want them to go directly to my whole list of homes and application. I do NOT want them to call or write. Just apply.

Zillow allows this.
