Is there a downside to 1000px uploads?

It seems that you only get the tracking with the professional version at $499 up to 5000 pics.

Edit: We crossed Declan!

Actually I had seen the watermark facility in PSP8, but it didn't explan it much, and clicking just takes you to the registering site.

Tracking is OK but it does not track prints. Yes you could eventualy track the image to a signed up user but what if they have done this at a internet cafe and downloaded to their usb memory then gone to a printers and had copies printed?

The only way you are going to know if you have a copyright problem is when you see your images for sale and you know it was not you that put them up for sale. Copyright protects you after the event, it only warns people prior to the event. Why spend money trying to stop people when you really know you can't, just limit the damage.

Don't upload any images you intend to sell, be careful with your choice of stock agency (just in case they upload on their site, images of a size that could be printed), if using a large image size then stick a copyright layer on in photoshop or if you are really paranoid about it then don't even print them off as someone could do reprints from them in fact don't take the shot just remember it as you saw it, at the moment no one can steal your thoughts. LOL
