    Do you guys recommend watermarking photos/videos with instagram with @username?
    Any problems that can happen if you add watermark like this?

    a lot of people do that to protect their own pics from being shared without their consent and if it's still shared somewhere without you knowing, your watermark will be on it, so that's all right, i can't see any problem with that, just make sure, it's subtle and doesn't take up half of the pic
    however if you want to watermark a website onto the pics, that looks spammy and i wouldn't do that

    Tried watermarking my pics, it kinda ruined page quality.
    So i discourage you from using them.

    Depends what your watermark looks like. I've seen plenty of pages with stylish watermarks that look fine.

    If you can make it look good and people share/repost your pics then it your pretty much getting free advertising for your page.

    If you want to use a photomark, use PHOTOMARKR its a really good app and you can make the watermark small and stylish so it doesnt ruin your pic

    I like watermarks, but make sure it looks good. Make them small/unobtrusive.

    If they're high quality pictures, I don't see them doing any harm.
