Watermarking Position:-

Choose it wisely because sometimes it can be tricky because by placing watermark to a position covers whole image detracts the user. According to my point of view place it on the centre, if you choose other location, then it will be easy for anybody who are expert in graphics to remove that watermark.

Colours also represent where to watermark or not ! Green colour area is the best to place a watermark while red areas need to avoid. Now a days , centred watermark also “too much” for most images as they covers whole of image by oversizing. According to subject you can blend your watermark with a definite size.

Size also matters while watermarking. Make sure it should be large enough not that large covers whole image which enough to protect image content/graphics so that it would not be removed by degrading the image quality.
