Id say all three, I dont always watermark everything though and Ive just learnt how to use metadata which I will try and use from now on. Tbh I think you can never be too careful.

It takes being vigilant and being willing and able to take legal action. YouTube uploaders always hated the fact that Warner was so militant about take down orders on that site. Otherwise, small size and watermarks are your best bet.

I use signatures on a separate piece of paper which I put right beside or slightly covering the art, so that it's hard to edit out. Also if it's personal art I'll put a DA watermark over it too, because I don't need to post the unwatermarked version of my personal art seeing as I have the art myself physically.

Are you planning on monetizing your work?

Really depends, if I can finish writing my books. But I'm talking from a normal users stance.
