Someone stealing your pictures off your website?
On my website I have some custom made photos and graphics. So today I checked to see if anyone was using them and sure enough I discovered them on other sites that were industry specific to my site.
If you want to check if you are having this problem
go to google.....click images on top of page.
then drag and drop your photos into google.

2. Borders and small print in a corner can be easily cropped out.
A copyright notice inside the picture (file) are harder to remove.
Water marks are good though.

4. I just look at my server logs
As for someone hotlinking me, it depends on the source. If it's some member at a board, I just slap a nice semi-transparent watermark with my website address right across the original image and re-upload it with the same file name. That way, my site gets a little free publicity.
If it's someone I don't like, I make a text image saying something snarky and rename it to match the stolen image file.
