Communicate Your Ownership and Help Potential Buyers Find You

A digital watermark embedded in your image carries a unique ID and can link to contact information or a website for viewers interested in learning more about you or purchasing your artwork. The watermark stays with your image regardless of the path it travels across the Internet. No matter where your digital image ends up, others will be able to determine your copyright ownership and find you.

Whether you're a photographer, artist or web designer, or a business managing large volumes of digital assets, Digimarc for Images offers added protection for your digital image portfolio. The digital watermark persists through file copying, format changes, encryption and decryption, as well as image manipulations such as editing, cropping, compression and decompression — all without affecting the quality of the image or the enjoyment of its viewers.
