Does anyone know how to post a watermark on their image that only appears when the mouse cursor is hovering over that image? Thanks for your help!

Shannon look up rollover images or mouseover images on google and you should be able to find the code... it is esentually a java code using two copies of the image one with watermark and one without that change when the mouse is over it.

Hope that helps-

While you might be able to prevent some copying of your images by right clicking on your image and choosing save image as, using the following technique someone can still capture your un-watermarked image. They can do this by: do a print screen while the mouse is not over your image, open an image editor program, paste and then crop down to just your image, then save the image.

Basically once the image appears on someone's monitor they can steal it if they want to.

If you still want to display un-watermarked images Cathy's comments are spot on although, you don't have to make 2 copies of every image. You can make one watermark image that is clear except for the watermark. Whenever someone mouse overs then Java code causes that watermark image to appear on top of your image.
