hello, i am an amateur photographer and i mainly just take photos of my family for fun, but i put a lot of work into those photos. i do not put a watermark or a copyright symbol on my photos at the moment but i am wondering if i should, especially since i do have a friend of the family who likes to save my photos i have displayed on my facebook and reedit them to her liking(and sometimes completely distorting them) without my permission. should i put a marking on my photos to show that they are indeed my property and not intended for others use? thank you for any information.

That is up to you and your personal preference. A watermark is not legally necessary but can help thwart unapproved usage. You could also contact the friend directly and politely let them know about your concerns. For more information on watermarks, see watermark.

Do you have any forms that can be used to license photos to clients? I don’t want to sell copyrights, or the images, just license them for finite periods of time, but I don’t have any forms for that.

No, I don’s have such forms. I just write on the invoice “Non-exclusive license to use the photos for only hellip;”
