I created a YouTube video slide show from our grizzly bear viewing (external link)trip to Alaska this summer. I was working on another slide show and started thinking I really should put a Copy right some place in the show or maybe on every slide. I really don’t want to add a water mark over the images. I know the copy right won’t stop people from taking the images. Any recommendation on how to include the copy right info?

Also, the first video I made I created in 1080i HD. After thinking about it, it seem like this is just creating a really easy way to steal the photos out of the video. I want the video to look good, but not provide a high quality image to steal. What resolution should I use for video that will look good on the screen but not reproduce well?

Is there anything else I should be thinking about before I put the slide shows on YouTube?


I am here to learn, so suggestions for improvement are welcome on any of my photos.

Well if someone tries to steal one of your images taken as a still frame of your video, then let them. Just because you used stills to create a video doesn't mean that the video is the same resolution as your stills. The video isn't anywhere even close to the same res. To create a video out of stills that means whatever program you used to stitch it all together had to duplicate the stills to fill all the frames in between. Let's just say that each still frame stays up on screen for 6 seconds, at 29.96 fps that one still frame had to be duplicated 179.76 times to fill that section. And to make it look seamless, there is a little bit of blur added in between each frame of the duplicated stills. So a screen grab of one still is going to look rather nasty and won't be the equal to one of your original still files.

Stills are shot at a much, much higher resolution than video is shot at on DSLRs. Unless you are shooting a 4K res camera, most screen grabs look bad compared to a true still image.

All that being said, it wouldn't take a lot to place a small watermark in the lower corner of the video if you're still worried. Just take the entire project back into any NLE program and add a continuous watermark over all your images.

This a an example of an image I was able to capture off the YouTube Video. I guess it would depend on what a person would want to do with it. Not good enough for a large print but it could work for web display.

Then just lay in a watermark down in one of the lower corners so that it covers all your images from beginning to end. They won't beable to remove it without a lot of trouble. Lay it in at an angle so they can't just crop it out.

Welcome to the digital age where what you create and post on line isn't solely yours for too long. It sucks, but the watermark is your best defense at this point.

Thanks for the input. I think I will go for a lower resolution video and copy right watermark.

What a shame you didn't switch the camera to video. ;-)a And viewers would perhaps find some images disturbing rather than disgusting.

With regard to copyright I would certainly include a footer note, tag line as suggested above. If you keep the images floating and cross fading this also makes grabbing a specific image more difficult.

Regrettably there are slime balls who don't respect others work and what ever you do they will rip off your image if they find it suitably inspiring. This I do find disgusting. If it were just for personal enjoyment that would be fine but in some dark corner of a semi developed toilet bowl of a country some low life will be using your image to make posters and wall prints for sale on eBay.

No kidding, quarterly we use a combination of actual titles and key words of the people featured in our videos and yesterday was such a day and in the process I discovered 7 blatant and by that I mean the infringer didn’t copy a snippet or a portion of the clip but downloaded the entire video complete with our logo and description and re-uploaded it to their You-Tube channel.

The result a quick Copyright claim and poof the infringing content was gone and as always later on I receive a few angry e-mails asking just why did I take their video down, “their” video, talk about ballsy.

Out of the dozens of infringements that have occurred I have filed a total of maybe three claims, in most cases other than a DMCA takedown or in repeated violations such as with the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee a shutdown of their channel by You Tube it is not worth the time or effort to attempt to collect.

When it comes to these things there’s an old saying I go by “you can’t get blood from a turnup.”

BTW If you should ever find yourself in the position to file a claim, contact an attorney by the name of Carolyn E. Wright, she is well known in the photography business and works with attorneys around the country, she referenced me to genius in Atlanta who will take a claim on a contingency basis if he feels there is a good chance of collection and if not, he will not waist his time or yours.
