Conrad in Big Sky Country says:
Our MRMLS (Montana Regional MLS) organization has changed its rules on watermarking photos and is requiring real estate photographers to remove watermarks off all the pictures on active listings by Nov 18th, 2018. Any information on this situation happening? I can’t imagine going back and delivering photos to hundreds of clients without watermarks. This is crazy!
Yes, you are right that sounds like an unreasonable request. I don't think they understand the implications of what they are asking. Here are my observations on this issue:
If they simply made the rule, "no watermarking of photos from now on" within 6 months or a year most photos with existing watermarks would disappear on their own because of expired listings.
Has anyone else encountered this craziness?
