Should I watermark my photos taken with my mobile before posting it online?
It is a personal opinion.
I would suggest you to watermark them strictly. If not now, when the Internet is going to be taken up by Mobile Photography, you’ll find that all the photos you posted are free for others to manipulate them. If you will be sharing your landscape, or travel, or food photographs on your blog, website, social-photography platforms, it is better you watermark them.
I would not suggest to watermark photos for Instagram because the size it allows to be visible.
Note: These are for photographers or aspiring photographers and not for selfie lovers et all.
