Hi

I am trying to locate a Freeware program that I can use to add watermarks to pictures.

I am doing some work for the local maritime museum which is run by volunteers.  I need to mark the pictures of the old sailing ships to prevent them being stolen.

Anyone got any suggestions?.

Not sure if this will help, but I used to use a freeware  graphics package to do this, the package has been updated several times, so I can't guarantee it still specifically does watermarking. Might be worth downloading it and checking it out though. It's Micrografx Picture Publisher and the link to the download is below:

Thanks Flaxen

No Luck!!

Followed the link only to end up at an Amazon page for a Corel product No longer available.  Must have been subject of a buy out.  Anyhow, thanks for the try.

Will keep looking!.

Has anyone else got any ideas?.

perhaps you can find something useful at http://www.versiontracker.com/ -- every time i go there looking for something i always find at least two other completely different and interesting programs to download.

There is no completely safe way to stop people from downloading your pictures.
One way to make it much more difficult is to use flash as a container for your pictures.

Hello,

I looked at your post and then did a quick google search and came up with this nice tutorial which shows how to watermark with CSS and PNG images, click here for the tutorial .

One important note to remember that is in the tutorial comments, is that anybody with real HTML knowledge could figure out how to overcome this, but they have to realize that it's in the HTML in the first place (read the tutorial comments for more on what I'm talking about).

A great freeware photo editor that I use is Paint.Net. I also believe their was someway to watermark pictures via javascript, but I could be very wrong, but just do a search on google or yahoo (or better, both!). Make sure it's not "Web Page Watermarks". Web Page Watermarks are those tacky images that stay at a certain spot as you scroll down.

Hope this helps, let me know if you have any questions.

- Matt

You know, Sim City Societies had a lot of potential, it was a great concept that was horribly developed and lacked any kind of depth. The idea of individualize buildings functioning independently playing its role in a largely diverse and thriving city.

The new Sim City appears to be the classic Sim City gameplay we saw with SC4, combined with a far better developed version of the Societies concepts. Looking great guys, don't let us down.
