Protecting Pictures

Allrighty.  It appears that a great deal of my photos are being lifted, and I have no idea where they’re going, but it makes me a little…uneasy, fidgety, irritated.  Take your pick.

My question is, to those of you who know how to “watermark” your pictures, how in the heck do I do it?  If you know, I wold SO appreciate the tutorial.

Many thanks!

    Depends on the program you use to download/edit your pictures. If you use Picasa by Google, you can add a watermark when you export your pictures from the program to, say, a folder on your desktop. I’m sure other programs out there allow the same thing.

    Ok, and my question is how did you know they’ve been lifted?? Cause the thought makes me a little queasy too.

    I’m with Meghan. How do you know?
    That would make me so mad!!

    I also agree with Picasa. I LOVE Picasa. You can add a watermark right on the photo! Easy-peasy.

    I use flickr. I upload my pics to flickr, then use their editing program (picnik) to add text. I reduce the shading of the text to 50% so it looks like a watermark. I haven’t played with Picasa much (when I learned to do this, it wasn’t an option) but if it’s easier, I’d go with that. I hate watermarking my pics. But then, I’d always rather just WRITE rather than mess with stinkin’ pictures.
