Hi Angel,


That is a good question and not so easily answered.


Of course you are familiar with the watermark or just putting your name on the image.  Most professional software such as Photoshop and Lightroom have the ability to create a watermark.  If you need more information on this, let me know.

What software do you use?



As you know, there are plenty of thieves who can simply edit out that watermark if they are good and desperate.   Then you can always have a digital watermark in the metadata.  This is where information about your photograph is stored.  Almost all digital images have somesort of metadata your camera attaches to each image.  This usually is the date it was taken and some information like the ISO, lens, camera, flash fired, etc.  But you can also put the creators name in the metadata.  This can be done by the camera (some setting) or within your professional editing software.

I know in Lightroom, there is an area just for Metadata and I have my name and other information listed so when images are exported, they will each have Ren Reich as creator. 

Here is a link with information on digitally watermarking



However, I am sure photo thieves can figure out how to change the metadata


You can also register and copyright your images, although I have never done it, with government offices.  Here in the USA we have such an office where you submit your images with some fee and they will hold onto it and have it officially copyrighted so that if you have to go to court you have proof that it’s your image.  It seems like a lot of work, but if you are in photography to make good money, then I guess it’s worth it. 

Here is a link for that



I hope this helps,

Good gravy, three languages.  No problem, I can understand you clearly.

I have been meaning to ask you what editing software you use for your photographs.  I use Lightroom2 and it is not obvious to put any kind of text on your images.  I know you can create something in Photoshop.  Anyway, I can guide you through Lightroom2, but you might have to google watermarks in your particular software.  I don't know if that is helpful. I really like your text you currently add to you images.
