This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Watermark all images for users not logged in. Thoughts?

I found some of the images I have uploaded to Pixoto on Google Images. If you click on the image a clean copy can be made and used. I was under the impression images were secure. This situation is even more surprising given that stock sales have now been introduced? How can images be made secure? Thanks.

Hello Manju if you list your images as Stock you have the option to apply the Pixoto watermark to them., This thread is almost a year old so old information here.

Sherry i have just done a simple search on google images all i put in was my name, several of my images from here come up on that site ! ?

Some could have come from other sites i submit to, several though must have come from here because they have not been submitted anywhere else and they have only been submitted here in the last 2 to 3 weeks or so !!

I just did a check on Google Images as well and found 27 different images from Pixoto on there, including almost all the shots I entered today and yesterday.

Hi John and Ralph, can you let me know if it is the thumbnail images or the full size images showing up? I looked at an earlier report and it was all thumbnails showing with out the watermark., Are your full sizes images showing on Google with out the watermark? I need to know this so I can report everything to the tech team, I did give them a heads up earlier today though.

On mine a thumbnail shows with Pixoto watermark where I have entered it for Stock. Clicking on the image takes you back to Pixoto and shows it in large form, so I really don't have a problem with that.

After talking with Jason, the large size images should always display on Google with the watermark, even if the images are not in the marketplace. However, the team is going to work on a way to fix the thumbnail display problem as well.

This is a great conversation that's separate from the main topic, so I created a new topic to continue the discussion. Please reference the new topic here: Want Images off of google search
