Solutions for watermarks in images?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I have about 7000 items with watermarks.

 

It would be extremely problematic to remove watermarks for all of them.

 

Are there any other options? Such as using a simple stock photo? Like a photo of just the part number or something like that?

Hi Jay

 

Watermarks on Google Shopping Images is prohibited, just as with any text/logo or promotional message placed over the image. 

 

For image specifications and regulations please see here

Any image you submit to Google in your Datafeed must be of the item in question.

You cannot use a generic image or any image with a name, part number etc.

You must also have the rights available to you in order to use the image.

 

I am assuming this is in reference to Google Shopping due to where you have posted your question, however, if this is incorrect, please let us know.
