Wacom Yuify lights up your artwork for all to see, illuminating the records of you, the creator. After all, the only thing as unique as you is your art.


Once you’ve finished creating, export your photo or artwork via Yuify as JPG or PNG file formats by injecting an invisible micro-mark. This is when Yuify makes its magic – by connecting artist and their digital artworks permanently through a permanent record of your creation. Log in to Yuify and you’ll see the resource file as part of your Projects.


You can use the Yuifinder for backwards search to identify the creator*. The tool enables you to ping the creator with your request.

* the author needs to have yuified (micro-marked) the initial artwork file

How does it work? Yuify technology explained


Wacom Yuify's invisible watermarking or micro-marking is a proprietary technology* developed and patented by Wacom. It injects invisible pixels into your exports that you want to publish for your photo or digital artwork. The image remains unchanged while Wacom Yuify creates a permanent link establishing you as the creator enables people to find the record of the artwork that can be traced back to you.

 * we are constantly improving the robustness of the technology during beta phase

Permanent records

Authorship records in Yuify are immutable. The service utilizes decentralized identifiers to make proof-of-authorship not just convenient but also secure. We are using blockchain technology to secure your records permanently.

Authorship discovery

Yuifinder is a public tool that can be used by anyone. Just drag and drop an artwork and if there is a Yuify record for that artwork, then it will reveal the record of the artwork along with additional details provided by the creator.*

License Builder

Yuify provides you with an easy to use License Builder tool that helps you setting up license terms within minutes that are tailored to your needs. You licenses any partner or collaborator and ask them to sign the license agreement enitrely Yuify. These license agreements are permanently recorded and  enforceable against unauthorized use.

AI and Yuify

Wacom Yuify cannot protect an artwork from being scrapped by AI tools, yet*. But with the help of a Yuify record your artwork has proof that it is human-made. It acts as a stamp of creation from an author and also establishes a direct link between the artist and his content.

Wacom hardware

You do not need to work on a Wacom to use the Wacom Yuify service. Using a Wacom pen enabled device for authentication by signature will speed up your workflow in authorising permanent transactions and signing your licenses.

Putting artists in control of their creations

Wacom Yuify is not a marketplace enforcing artists to follow specific legal and financial terms and conditions. Wacom Yuify is an effective digital rights management tool for artists. Yuify records are permanent and provides artists with the means to license their content direcltly, without the involvement of third party. Think of Yuify like a peer-to-peer platform where artists are absolutely free to provide usage and development rights to their content as they feel.

Wacom Yuify is part of the Creative Rights Initiative (CRI) aiming to help artists protect and maximize the value of their creations. CRI is established by Wacom in partnership with leading technology companies, academics, startups and creative professionals.
