With some blogs etc, linking back to your image i do again like the discrete watermark idea as your brand is always there, or is purposefully removed.

Images like this and this I believe actually remind us that a pro created them and they are not free - most things of value that are reproducible have a brand trademark - why should photo's not be the same.
When I have a brand I'll use them.

If I see a shot I like on Facebook I often look up the photographer's work, which sometimes means looking at the watermark if there's no link

That's why I watermark most of mine

The huge watermarks (full photo) are there on facebook shots to stop people cropping the logo off... cheeky people do it all the time Wink
