Name the copyright owner
The attribution can be placed either on your own website or under each individual publication of your images or other visual content. Try to keep it short and to include the licensing notice. A visible warning should also accompany this information. This warning might inform or deter those users who are not aware of copyright or who are not conscious about the fact that not everything is for free on the internet.
Attribute Rightsholder and Source
Add a small caption including a copyright notice with information of the rightsholder and the website. You can even attach a link to the image, and when the file is copied, your website traffic increases.
Upload Images in Parts
Another way to protect yourself from images theft is to upload your photos in parts, and then to piece them back together online. With this method only small chunks of data can be abstracted and are hard to be piece back together. This will quickly tire out anyone trying to piece the puzzle together. To dissemble the image can take a lot of time, though software is also available.
