Does anyone have an opinion on the best (preferably free) option for watermarking photos? I run a cleaning service business and utilize before and after photos of my work. My website and YouTube videos are cluttered with unmarked images. Image lifting is rampant in my industry.


Do I have something on my PC already that will do this? I'm running Windows XP Professional



Thanks.

What program do you use to edit your photos? You'll need some sort of editing software to place a permanent watermark on the photo.

This can be easily done in Photoshop if you have that (not a free program, however).

A couple I've used before are Picture-shark, and Photo Watermark.
For ease of use, I preferred Picture-shark.

Both are Freeware.

Great links, tg1911. Softpedia has always been a great freeware and shareware resource. :thumbsup:

You can always watermark them in GIMP or photoshop. You've just got to get stuff to stick on top of it, and then you can adjust opacity to how you like it while still being able to see the image.

I've tried downloading Picture shark Photo Watermark & GIMP. Some appear not to be downloading while others look like they download (I get the pop up window showing progress) but I'll be darned if I can find any trace of it. I am running Webroot Anti Virus and I assume the MS Firewall is up too. I do not like dropping protection to let things in. Is this what's wrong or am I missing something?

What browser are you using?

Whoops, just noticed how old this thread it o.O
