    I don't think you can remove it without drastically destroying the picture. That is what watermarks are for. You can't use the picture without the owners permission.

    Yes, not a possible thing to do. Also, you may be courting trouble there ... watermarked photos are typically tracked online as well, and you could end up with a very nasty letter from a lawyer, along with a demand to pay for copyright infringement!

    Removing watermarks is not illegal?
    Can we remove the watermarks and use those images for other purposes?

    I guess that you can't do that at all .. I'd better use another font, there are many free ones without any watermarks. Just check these free fonts https://www.templatemonster.com/blog...ative-writing/ , they're very quality.

    Technically speaking, no removing a watermark in and of itself is technically not illegal...

    But using the copyrighted image without authorization from the copyright holder IS... hence the reason for the watermark, to both notify you of the intellectual property and it's copyright, and to dissuade that wrongful use.

    So what other means would one have for removing a watermark, other than to use the image without the consent of the copyright holder? If you had their consent, they would provide you with an image without the mark.
