    Signatures On Pictures

    I've noticed that a few people have their names on their pictures.... mainly Butch. How does one apply that feature on Photobucket?

    I think that's something that needs to be done prior to upload, in your graphics software of choice. Just create a new layer to type your name into, position it how you want, then save the image as a .png or .jpeg before putting it on Photobucket (or wherever)

    Jim,

    I don't use Photobucket or any of the other photo hosting websites. I don't know if they have their own utilities which would simplify things a bit.
    I'm old school, I use Photoshop or Helicon Filter.

    Helicon Filter is very easy, but I don't think they offer their freeware version anymore,

    I think if you google " free online watermark tool" you might come up with some options.

    Also, there are a few free online photoshop-ish editors such as Pixlr that you could use.

    One caveat, if you watermark a photo and then try to get a hard copy.... some places wont print them for you.
    I ran into that issue after doing some business type photos for a local company that later wanted hard copies.

    Worth mentioning here is that you should not overwrite the original photo with the watermarked one, you should always keep an original, unmarked copy, should you ever need to go back and rework it or get a print made.

    If you are a Google user, then the Picasa Web Albums tool has an automated Watermarking upload tool you can use. See: https://support.google.com/picasa/answer/106193?hl=en
