There’s been a lot of talk swirling about, lately, regarding people stealing pictures and using them as their own. Now, I have a few choice words I could use to describe people who do that, but I’d rather show you how I use watermarks on my pictures, to add a level of protection to them.

There are a few methods to make/use watermarks.

1) In Adobe Photoshop; here’s what I do:

I have since changed my watermark to my logo, but the process is still the same.

2) In Lightroom, use the Mogrify Plugin, which allows you to add a watermark upon export.

“The plug-in provides an easy to use interface onto several of Mogrify’s features, such as advanced resizing options, sharpening after resize, colourspace conversion, overlaying graphical watermarks or textual annotations and putting borders around your images.”

3) You can also use Picnik to add your name in text to protect your photos.

Whatever method you choose to use, it’s important to protect your images from online theft. I’d love to hear what you do? Do you watermark? Do you embed metadata? Do you disable right clicking? Curious minds want to know!
