Safety & Privacy & GDPR

Is there anything else I need to know as a photographer?

Yes, as of May 25 photographers also became obligated to comply with the GDPR. Although you have already been obliged to do many things within the framework of strict German laws, from May 25 data processing that does not comply with the GDPR may result in harsh penalties.

We would be happy to advise you here, but unfortunately, we are not lawyers. Therefore, we ask you to contact your lawyer or a professional consultant for the necessary updates of your website, contract templates, etc. A first step for the rough understanding of GDPR can be found on the Podcast “Uncle Bobcast”  by wedding photographers by Nils Hasenau and Manuel Gutjahr. They spoke with an attorney on the topic of GDPR. (German)




How can I protect my images with watermarks?

In your account settings (“Your watermarks“) you can upload your logo or other graphics and create multiple watermarks with just a few clicks. You can set the place for the watermark and adjust its size and opacity to your needs.

Don’t forget to “Save & Close” your new watermark settings.
To apply watermarks to all the images in a gallery just navigate to the gallery settings of each gallery. You can activate your watermarks in the “Security” section of your gallery settings.

After you hit “Apply Changes” wait for a few seconds to see the watermarks appear on each preview image in your gallery. It couldn’t be easier.

Note: the watermarks will “only” protect the thumbnails and previews in PicDrop, so your clients can’t take screenshots or steal the pictures in other ways. If you activate the download of the original images at the same time, these will not be protected by watermarks because PicDrop will never modify your originally uploaded images.
