Important changes since UK just passed their orphaned art bill, read of it in the article "All Your Metadata R belong to US: UK passes Orphan Works Bill, the "Instagram" Act. And you were whining about what happens to your images on Facebook." by Coleen Doran….

"The Act contains changes to UK copyright law which permit the commercial exploitation of images where information identifying the owner is missing, so-called "orphan works", by placing the work into what's known as "extended collective licensing" schemes."

Always sign your work, watermark, paste portfolio URL. Never post images on-line without a signature. It'll get re-posted and loose all the metadata, making easy to claim it being orphaned art. Sure it's usually easy to find the original creator with Google's image search, but do not count on potential users of your art as orphaned to do a proper check, secure your art yourself.

It doesn't mean a watermark or URL has to be slapped across the image covering half of it, no, but it has to be visible enough after re-posting, re-sizing and unauthorized filtering on various sites, including YT videos. You cannot stop the flow, do not fight it but use it -people will share your art, make them share it with your name on it.
