It’s an utter advise to watermark the photos that you share on your blog to protect them from unauthorized use. Another good reason to do so is that it can be a way to promote your blog. Say someone happens to see one of your photos on the internet with your customized watermark, chances are he’ll head to your site to view more of your photos or just check your blog out. This is basically the reason why I started watermarking my photos, especially the ones I use for my reviews.
There are a few ways to watermark. One is to just type your blog’s URL in your photos like I used to do in the beginning of my blogging journey. Another way is typing your blog’s name. If not, why not use your blog logo?
While there are a number of apps to use to add a watermark, I personally favor PIXLR EXPRESS. Using it is simple as ABC and totally for free. Who doesn’t like that?
Now let me show you how to do it.
- I assume you already have your logo saved in your computer drive. Go to https://pixlr.com/express/.
- Click BROWSE. You’ll be asked to choose a photo to edit.
- Select ADJUSTMENT.
- Click ADD IMAGE.
- Click BROWSE. Choose an image (your blog logo). Adjust the size and placement.
- Select APPLY.
- Then SAVE it.
Easy, right? This online image editor is best when you only have to watermark a few images. Like I said, I mostly watermark pictures for my review posts where I usually have 2~3 photos. Not a lot of work! 😀
Which one do you use?
