I'm looking for some advice on publically sharing photos - both in general and on Cake - so I can figure out how to best do it. I don't currently sell my photos, but might one day like to and would like to protect myself against theft.
Do you watermark or is that a waste of time? I've noticed that some people do it, but many others (including people who appear to be professionals) do not. I know watermaks can be stripped by software - does that make them not worth the effort?
Cake strips metadata from uploaded photos - is that a good or bad thing? Is it better to host your photos elsewhere and embed them? Where do you host?
What kind of processing do you apply (apart from processing the image itself, of course)? Do you add or strip any particular metadata, reduce the size of your images, or apply any other changes to images you want to share online?
Any tips or advice would be much appreciated.
