The Frustration Of Watermarks


Boy, sometimes....I just don’t get it!!!  I love/hate those special times a few times a month when I try to learn how to get around in the world of “DI-GI-TALLLLL”.  You’ve got to say that with a scary voice to really get it!
Today, I have been trying to figure out this whole watermark thing...putting your name or logo on your photo’s to protect them from cybphotheives...(I’m really into making up words lately :));  in other words - people who steal photo’s from the web for free and without acknowledgement to the photographer.  
Others make it sound so easy.....
so it must be me;
I finally have a brush to to use, as in the photo above...
however, I couldn’t even begin to tell you how....sorry.  I know, what kind of a cyber-friend am I?
Good luck dear loved one’s, if you try to figure this out.  Write to me if you have a easier way than what ever I did...it gave me a twitch in the eye,
but, I WON....and at least one photo is watermarked....YEA ON ME!

  1. Funny, I was just e-mailing another blogger about this. :) I use Windows Live Writer to write posts, & I add the Watermark on very easily using that program. Windows Live Writer is great- & is completely free! :)
    Hope this helps a little!

  2. I love Live Writer too - however, I have a professional watermark I created in photoshop that I use too. Or I put one on every photo in picasa 3 also a free program.

    Love you and gorgeous photo!

  3. Hi there! Just found you via my friend Adeye's blog. Love your heart for adoption. We are working currently at an orphanage/children's home in Thailand and see the goodness of kids in families.

    Anyway, just wanted to say I enjoyed reading about you guys tonight.

    I use Picassa too--can't figure out the other stuff! Complicated!

    love from here,

  6. Picnik will allow you to put a copyright sign on your photo (alone with your name if you want). Then you can just adjust the strength to make it translucent. SUPER EASY!!! I can't remember if it's offered in the free package (I think so), but if not, it's only $25 per year. Well worth it. There is no way to save it, so you have to do a new one for each photo, though.
