So how do you add a watermark/text? If you have photoshop, simply use the text tool, choose your font, size, etc and type out your text. Tip: make sure you have the original image saved in another place because photoshop will embed the text into your image.
If you don't have photoshop, or other photo editing software, you can use flickr. (This is what I do, even though I have photoshop) You can use flickr or another web-based photo hosting website to upload your pictures to. On most of these websites you can edit your pictures and add the text there.
I also thought about making my blog private. Which is a great and wonderful idea if only your family and friends have your blog address and keep it quiet. Since so many of my family and friends know my blog address and I'm too lazy to start another blog, I decided against it. But honestly, if someone wants to get to private content they can. It's actually really simple. (and I don't plan on sharing how to do that). And to those of my friends/family whose blogs are private, don't worry. Your blog address is safe with me!
So there you have it, a quick little post on how to keep your content and pictures a little safer. Though nothing is guaranteed. Do what you can to protect your family and yourself from those crazies out there!
If you have any other ideas on safety besides "don't post pics in the first place" then let me know! I'd love to get any thoughts and ideas, dear readers.
