    Copyright Stamping

    Hello everyone -

    I've been away (from the site) for a few months. Busy with work and school. Glad to be back.

    Have a question about copyright on photos. I've noticed a few posts that contain a copyright stamp on the photo itself. Have seen this before and always wondered what software program would do that for you. Can anyone suggest a program or point me in the right direction? Thought I would start claiming ownership of my photos.

    Thanks, Laura

    Hi Laura,

    We had a discussion about this not that long ago, have a read through the thread: Copyright and watermark questions

    My personal opinion is that it's generally the fastest way to ruin a good photo that I know of - or put another way - "It often ruins an image for 100% of people whilst providing only a false sense of security against the dishonest 0.002% of the people (who wouldn't have paid to use it anyway).

    Just my 10c worth
