I am new. I wanted to upload all the information that my mother has gathered for years. i thought that by uploading the pictures and documents she has that it would spark interest From others that at researching the same families that I am. I am happy to share what I have with everyone and hoping others would be willing to share!
I am not sure what you would like people who are borrowing your pictures to do. Would you like them to acknowledge that they came from you? Is there even a place on Ancestry to give credit to the photographer? Or would you like to sell pictures you have worked on?
I Am not sure how to do it but you can put a watermark on your pictures. For someone who has done a lot of work cleaning up their pictures this would be a good way to go!
I am not sure about the rules here but sometimes people use their web address as a watermark, so that others can SEE who did the work and also If you put a watermark with your web Address on it then perhaps some of the "takers" would be willing to PAY for hard copies that you could send them?
Basically I feel like Jerry. If they are just using it to Share Family interest that is one thing! (i am not sure what building up their profile means), but IF they are selling OR publishing the pictures that is something else again!
