I know it is done to try and stop you copying the image, but, is there any way I can remove a transparent watermark from a picture?

Your posts, more often than not, are very generic and unrealistic. It's not like there's an option in Paint Shop Pro or Photoshop that you press, and boom, no more watermark. You need to be able to use many certain, little techniques to achieve this. Googling around may not help you no more than Google can tell you how to paint, or how to become a better writer.

Well sorry then! :x I know that obviously you can select a certain option in either of those programs and tadah! no more watermark, but I was thinking that it might be possible in some way or another to get rid of the watermark.

In many cases there are easier ways to steal the image, for example the watermarked images in AnimationFactory.com are available to the public at other places on their website
(admitably you need to know the URL but that can be deduced from the image name)...

It is my school photograph. There is a leaflet with the picture of me on it, and showing me the buying options of how I want the picture to be, but it is pricey, and the picture of me taken has a ''Copyright (C)'' logo as a fully transparent watermark.

Yeah, it's not the best idea if you don't want to go to jail or pay fines.

People do take pictures for money, you know. And you're picture scanned from a pamphlet won't be as high of quality as one obtained from a professional. I highly recommend reviewing the time it would take to remove the copyright versus the consequences of copyright infringement.

And by the way, the answer isn't that hard to find, you can probably even find a video tutorial on Youtube on how-to do this. And there's not a doubt in my mind that there's a tutorial on how-to do this with in Google's reach.

This kind of copyright infringment is wrong, it's not like piracy were your stealing from a large corporation that can spare the loss, this is somebody's buisness/franchise.

Sure, photographers prices can be a little heavy, but they need to cover the cost of the equiptment, maintaining said equiptment, cost of getting the photo's developed, car fuel, and the wages of any employee's, and have enough left over make it through the week, not to mention the fact they have to travel to schools, and deal with bratty little kids who do nothing to make their live's easier.

If you were a photographer, how would you feel If someone did this to your work?

And if my moral lecture doesn't phase you, theres also the previously mentioned inferior image quality point.

He did buy it - but it came with a watermark. And yeah - removing it is copyright infringement.
