Any idea how to get a watermark on pictures, one that looks tasteful but still protects the images? I know that one can simply type their name copyright note etc. using MS-Paint (which is what I used to do), but now I need to provide something more decent. I would prefer if I could specify the location of where it would appear as well.

I have a legal copy of PhotoElements 1 and some very old Photoshop LE version! A reference to a free legal software that does provide such a functinality would be nice..

Many thanks

trying to stir another flame war? :what: sat and sun are known to be quiet days on CS becos most people are out.

marios_pittas - in ur PS, u can create ur own watermarks using Layers. make a duplicate layer of ur pic first. then, create an empty layer. use the Text tool to add in the text on this empty new Layer. save ur file as *.psd first. this creates a PS worksheet, in case u wish to remove the Text layer next time. then, save ur file again as jpg. PS will then compress ur layers into a single file. this will create the watermark on ur pic. hope it helps?:)

just play around with the font lor ... for female models ... remember how .. bigger safer than smaller ... later some tkp go ps off your tiny watermark and host it somewhere not-so-nice ... then u kenna sue ... also not-so-nice ...

just play around with the size and font ... find something u like or u think looks nice ... then use lor =)
