Easy! Open the picture you want to water mark in a random image editor, if your using windows for example, paint.
Then, use the text tool to watermark it, save, and your done!

If you already have an image editing program, you can add copyright, or any other, text you want. Save and upload the new image to your file manager.

Or, here's a list of downloads on CNet, ", to add a watermark or edit images. Some, if not all, are free.

Hello Goran

Kevin and Jean both gave great suggestions. Here is another one to add to the mix!

Watermarking your images is an effective way to ensure that another user cannot take your pictures and use them as their own - and what is better, if they do take the pictures and use them on their own website, they will effectively be advertising your work for you for free. If you are selling your work; what many people do is provide low-resolution watermarked images on the site, with an order form for people to request the larger unmarked images.

If you are looking to watermark your images, here are 3 online free watermarking services that you may find useful:

1. PicMarkr
2. WebWatermarks
3. Watermarktool

I hope this information is helpful to you. If you have any further questions, please let me know.
