How do you feel secure with your images on flickr with a pro account?

You have 2 options for the public seeing your pictures, you can either limit them to the "small" size, or allow them to see all the way up to the original size.

With the original size, the one's i'm uploading are pretty much a direct RAW conversion to JPG, which honestly anyone would be able to download and print.

I have a watermark on them, but i dont agree with putting big watermarks across the front of the picture as i feel it takes away from it, and the watermarks i put in the corners could easily be cropped out of most pictures, and still end up being a decent picture.

Obviously, there is the EXIF data, but this 1) is easily removed 2) doesnt prevent someone from downloading and printing out your picture.


I think the only other option would be to upload, originally, a compressed version of the picture, which is just another step i don't feel like dealing with. Does anyone have suggestions?


If that's the only way, whats the best way to get good quality? lower the resolution on the export in lightroom but keep quality at 100?

Any input you have would be helpful.

Thanks!

I've never had a problem with the tiny version they give people. That's just the risk you run though...I wouldn't worry about it
