Uploading pictures on internet

What is the best way to prevent your pictures from being stolen in the internet?? I usually have pictures uploaded on facebook and worried that pictures (espc family members) can be used for fraud work.

What dpi setting is recommend so that when viewing images online, it looks ok but bad to print it;etc.

Thansk.

Best is to don't put it on the internet.

And if you do, restrict who can view it.

Unless you are making a business out of you images, else i wouldn't be that concern - they like it let them have it since keeping them in the home PC is also a waste

If you see your image on the billboard you have to option to make some money and then thank the guy for stealing it - for making you famous provided you still have the original image in your possession

yup, Ridzuan is right. anything higher then 72 dpi is pointless on common monitors/lcd. you wont notice the difference.

for prints its usually 300dpi. or for some 200 dpi can be excepted.

water marking makes it harder for people to reuse your photos.

Make sure u dun upload passport photos or else they will make passports and ICs using the pix. (ok... just kidding...)

Perhaps u can explain your concerns? How is it that pix of "family members" can be used for "fraud work?"

In any case, it's always best to upload only low-res photos online.

When taking such pictures intended for the net, rotate the lens focus ring to the nearest limit and snap away.
