I've seen a few questions on here about how to watermark your photos, and I just remembered that I did a little movie about how to do it a while ago. This is how to resize your photos so that they don't show up super huge, and how to watermark them by using the paint program that comes with most PCs. There are other programs that you can use but the process is similar.

It won't completely stop picture thieves, but it will either slow them down, or they'll move along to the next person who didn't watermark their photos icon_smile.gif

Thanks for sharing thumbs_up.gif
I would like to suggest another tool

You can make an account & edit your images.. The thing I like about Photoshop is that you can control the transparency/opacity of the text/signature according to your pic

When you want it dark

There is also a site www.picnik.com that you can use much like the photoshop one, and you can control the % of transparency of the watermark.

Thanks for posting this link! The editing that you can do, even without upgrading to the premium version, makes a huge difference. I was getting frustrated with how some of my cake photos were turning out but I wasn't about to go get an SLR with a macro lens just to post on cake central! And not that my cakes are good enough to watermark yet, but I think I might anyway just because. icon_smile.gif Thanks again!
