Watermarking

You may have noticed that I have started watermarking some of the pictures I put on my blog. I have seen a lot of other blogs doing this, and I think it is a great idea!

I hate that I have to put the watermark across the center of the picture, but if I put it on an edge, it could easily be cropped off.

No, I have not had a bad experience with anyone stealing my pictures, I just want to be on the safe side just in case. I also plan on adding watermarks to all of the pictures previously posted on here, but that may take me a while. It is easy to do, but it does take a few minutes for each picture, and I have over 500 pictures on here. Obviously I will have to do a little at a time. :)

I use Picnik to watermark my pictures. If you are interested in watermarking your pictures, here is how I do it:

Upload the picture onto Picnik, or if you've already done so, go to your library.

Next, click Edit Photo.

From this page you can crop, resize, or adjust colors.

Next, click Create and then Text.

Add your blog name or URL to the box and click Add.

After you have done this, you can change the way the text looks. I change mine from "Normal" to "Overlay" so that it is more transparent and the picture can still be seen pretty well.

When you're done, click Save and Share to save it to your computer. Then, upload it to your blog! It's that simple.

Picnik is free, but if you want a Premium Account you have to pay. I'm not sure how much it costs as I don't have one. There are tons of ways out there to watermark, this is just the way I do it. If you know of a way I can watermark lots of pictures all at once, please let me know! I'd love to be able to watermark faster and easier.

Also, look for the right-click function on my blog to be disabled soon as well. :)

I hope this helps some of you out there wanting to watermark! By the way, you can also watermark this way and upload your watermarked pictures to Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, etc.
