If you remember, Steeroid posted a scoop about that One lac Car on Team-BHP and watermarked the image.
The picture found it's way out into the big bad internet and is still doing the rounds, but the Team-BHP is still on the picture.

Tush, I suggest you develop a simple semi-transparent watermark and flatten in with your spy pics.

you can create watermarks using photoshop. What OD is doing is bad. I think you should casually mention it to Autocar - thye will have a whale of atime on this!

As far as I know, photoshop cannot be downloaded just like that - in all probalities, you may be getting an unauthorised copy.
This is pretty easy using the command line on Linux - just see this link -
Shevin -Life and Ubuntu
But you can use Gimp - it free, and a windows version is available. You can search the web for the windows version, Once installed, read Learning GIMP - Part 2 - Working with text and watermarks. - Softpedia

The picture I posted is from BRF and one of their pictures and article were directly lifted by Force Magazine which is pretty big defence magazine. They plagiarized the article, printed the picture and did not credit anyone! When confronted, they claimed they took the picture at the same time, same position, same angle!! Legal notices didn't work and a case is open now. I don't think OD is going to be scared by Tushky's legal notices, it will cost him a lot to hire a lawyer but wont cost OD a penny to ignore them. Even if he has the original, OD can claim that they took the pic on the same day.

Best thing to do is to hang on to the original and send a low resolution copy of the picture with watermark all over the subject such that it cannot be cloned out. Never send the high resolution one.

Tushky you can use a simple program like irfanview for watermarking, no need to get something as complicated as photoshop.
Just google for free image watermarking software and you will find tonnes of links.
