Copyright sign ghosted over my gallery
Is it possible

I have a photogallery of over 2200 photos of wild Plants, all high quality, and rather rare (highly requested) stuff that I am sure many of them are being screen-captured, cropped and used without my permission.

The only solution apparentely in 2006 is to place a water mark, namely the (c) sign on the photo, slightly ghosted (transparent) so as the image is still well visible but the hacker gets irritated by it to screen-capture.

If I have 10 photos, I can do it manually by photo shop, but I have 2200 photos and apart the time-consuming, crazy job, I prefer if I dont mess directly on my image files, becasue then I need to have 2200 normal files and 2200 (c) marked files on my HD.

I was thinking if there is a magical javascript that can be used so as a (c) sign is generated automatically at a selected transperencey on a selected photo.

I am aware that this can somehow be bypassed, but seeing a (C) watermark on the image, the normal user/hacker would say that it is part of the photo not a piece of java code.

Hope it is possible.

Well .. you could use javascript to overlay a transparent image over the one you want protected. However if they really want the picture they can look at the page source code and still get it.

I use photoshop actions to automate sizing of pictures, but I'm not sure that it would automate the copying of a layer and putting it on the pictures, but it could automate re-saving them.

I use Picture Shark - it's free and does batches.

There are others.
