    Hello

    Would anybody be able to let me know how you go about marking your photos, so they can't be used, or copy by any one else.

    Also can anybody give me any tips as how to make them clearer, i take all my photos in natural daylight, with marco setting on, no flash

    Many thanks for all the help

    Hi Tiara sara,

    Photoshop has a simple setting for that which you can use. Unfortunately, if I could remember I would tell you. There is definately one in Photoshop.
    Not much help on how to do it , assurance is there.
    Good luck! Have a lovely weekend
    ps last year I used it many times ... but then when you have not used something for awhile it slips your mind.

    It rather depends on what application you're using - personally I use lightroom and use the plugin LR/Mogrify 2 which is outstanding.
    If however your budget doesn't stretch to lightroom try one of the online ones such as read forum rules, or indeed anything that has layers, in which case design a watermark and import it to the later above the image you want to protect then export.

    I use Photoshop for editing the photographs, that is for increasing the indent, color, context, combination, brightness and much more, I feel it more user friendly. So, you can go ahead with it.

    This can be done at no cost using Google Picassa if you dont have any paid software

    Photoshop is the best tool for me - just type your watermark over the top of your image, then adjust its colour/opacity/transaprency/depth/contrast. You can also water mark it with another image or logo and make that transparent too. View the picture below for one I made in photoshop!
