HomeAway removes watermarks on photos


An interesting development from HomeAway regarding the use of watermarked images on adverts…


We have removed the watermark and fading on the VRBO photos as part of a continued effort to provide the highest quality images for our travelers.  By removing the watermark and fading, travelers are able to see more of the photos of your property without the distraction of photo treatments.

For the protection of your photos, we have disabled the ability to use right-click to save the photo to a local file.


This has caused major consternation amongst owners fearful of images being copied and used fraudulently on classified listings sites like Craigs List/Gum Tree.
