enter image description hereI am Using QGIS 2.16.1. When I open the Google satellite image by using open layers plugin I am getting watermarks on it. So many time I uninstalled and installed. Even I installed new version of QGIS. I went through the same question replied by you. How to close watermarks window in QGIS Openlayers plugin?

but the link you suggested has been removed already.

  • Welcome to GIS:SE @DeepaEswarapu. If you use the QuickMapServices plugin instead, you can use Bing Satellite which I don't think contains any watermarks (or atleast I couldn't see any!). You can download the plugin from Plugins > Manage and Install Plugins.... Once installed, go to Web > QuickMapServices > Settings > More services > Get contributed pack to make sure you get all the latest services. – Joseph Mar 29 '17 at 10:55

You may try using the Quick Map Services plugin, it shouldn't include any watermark. See here for a help on how to install it.

Using the Google Satellite Service, it seems that you will still have watermarks on the map (but not on the bottom-right of the image you attached in the original question):

An alternative would be the Mapbox Satellite Service from the Mapbox Menu:

which seems not showing any watermark.

  • Thank you very much for your quick response. I installed QUICK MAP SERVICES. but the same problem. – Deepa Eswarapu Mar 30 '17 at 11:58
  • Could you please share the location of the image you attached in the question and which service are your trying to use? – mgri Mar 30 '17 at 13:05
  • satellite image located in doha, qatar. we are getting satellite imagery from our supplier. by using that satellite imagery i need to get high quality print outs (A1 and A0) and soft copy for our clients . so I tried to get Jpeg formate from the QGIS software. but i am getting these issues. – Deepa Eswarapu Apr 2 '17 at 4:15
  • @DeepaEswarapu please, see my edited answer. If you want high quality prints, I wouldn't suggest the jpeg format since it is a compression format (maybe .png or .tiff are better). – mgri Apr 2 '17 at 9:57
  • thanks a lot for your response again. i saved image by using Mapbox Satellite, and i am not getting any watermarks. but i am missing the details from the construction location. actually we need satellite image for those details. i am adding my image in edited answer – Deepa Eswarapu Apr 3 '17 at 6:50

A alternative to the OpenLayers plugin is TileLayerPlugin. Maybe this error does not occur with this plugin:
