Whatever I've decided to throw at you...
In three easy steps!
  1. Only upload small files at 72 dpi or ppi resolution.
  2. Resize your images to be small enough that all the details can be seen.  This is usually no more than 800 pixels on the longest side.
  3. Watermark that fine piece of work, or put your URL near an important part of the image that makes it impossible to crop out without losing a significant portion of the art.

NEVER UPLOAD FULL RESOLUTION FILES ANYWHERE

 

If your art still gets stolen or reposted to another site with out crediting you, ask the person to credit you or remove the art from their site.  If they refuse, feel no guilt in reporting them.

This will not erase ALL art theft, but it will certainly help to prevent plagiarism.  If someone is intent on ripping you off, nothing will stop them.  However, as an artist you certainly can make their job a lot harder by only posting low resolution and watermarked images.  Again, try to include your website URL in your watermark and it will not matter as much if your image is reposted somewhere with out crediting you.

The following is a tutorial I found quite useful in creating a simple watermark in Photoshop or Gimp:

Hey. I hate to bug you, but it's probably not a good idea not to.

Mn.  Sounds normal.  I have... eleven days?  Six technically since I only go to class for three days out of the week.
