I know there is a lot of discussion on this but I am starting a photography journey on Instagram where I have a lot of content of my professional photos that I am starting to sell on my website. I am in an area where I can easily transition to watermarked photos or continue unwatermarked (the photos on my website are watermarked at 100% JPEG). Is it possible for others to take my photos from Instagram and use them to sell if I’m uploading the same (100% JPEG) unwatermarked? Or should I just post my already watermarked ones? (Tiny in a corner at the bottom and not that visible). My husband says that if I upload to Instagram the quality won’t be that great anyway so it shouldn’t matter, but I’m starting to think maybe watermark them since I’ve spent so much time on them.
I ask this because I have heard of the stories of others on here who haven’t watermarked and then found their photos all over the internet..etc. my photography is a travel based photography as well (not sure if that helps).
