First, anytime anyone uploads anything to the Internet, it’s in danger of being “stolen.”
Second, Indie Platinum cannot and will not be held responsible for protecting artwork that is uploaded to this site.
Things you could try to protect your work…
**Disabling the right-click link
**Adding a watermark
**Uploading only low-res (72ppi) images
HOWEVER, please understand that these methods don’t always work. If you disable your right-click function, a user can simply click “Ctrl Print Screen” to copy your image and paste it on their desktop. If you add a watermark, a Photoshop (or other software) expert could take it off.
What should you do?
There are many experts out there who can advise you on protecting your work. Please read these articles:
