Adding a Watermark to Your Blog Photos {a tutorial}

Watermarking your photos that you share on your blog is super important for two reasons! One, you want to protect your work! Adding your blog name to your pictures can help to ensure that no one takes your pictures and tries to play them off as their own. Two, you want people to associate your photos with your blog so when they see a great picture {on Pinterest for example}, they know exactly where it's from! I've had several people ask me how to actually add a watermark to a picture, so I made some video tutorials to help you out. {just ignore the super high-pitched voice ;)}


In this tutorial, I will show you the step-by-step to add your watermark to an image using PowerPoint. I'm on my Mac, but it's very similar on a PC. This is how I watermark all of my pictures because it's easiest for me.




In this tutorial, I will show you how to add a watermark using PicMonkey. You can tell that I don't use this option often ;)

  4. Thanks for sharing! On my mac, I use an app called PhotoBulk. It will add a watermark to a bulk of photos at once. You do need to have a watermark (like a PNG) image to add. It's been very useful!

  12. Great tutorial. I have started using my blog bottom in my photos so people know they are my photos. What program did you use to make your tutorial?

  13. I love this- thank you so much for posting this tutorial. I attended your AH-MAZ-ING workshop on Beginner Blogging at the TPT Conference, but I may have reached maximum overload by the time you mentioned watermarking! I, for one, really appreciate the refresher! I would love to see more tutorials on marking your photos for linking them back to your blog, as well as anything about Instagram. I am new to that forum and am feeling a bit lost about how it works with linking to others. Thanks for reaching out to all of us newbies, Hadar! You are an inspiration.

  14. Love this, Hadar! Thank you! This may be a silly question, but how do you get the vertical pic to save as just the picture and not the entire slide? I use powerpoint too, but I always pull my image to fill the whole slide so that all it saves is picture and not blank white slide. Does that make sense??!?
