I started thinking a lot about watermarks this summer after our wedding. Our amazing wedding photographer insists that her logo goes on every.single.photo and I totally agree with that.
Think about it... you take a photo in your classroom and upload it to your blog. Anyone in the world can grab that via a right click or a screenshot and say that it's theirs. Even the most well meaning person could be using your photos in a manner that you do not agree with or give your permission for.
There are fancy and high tech ways to add watermarks for photos, and someday hopefully I will learn how to use Photoshop or some other fancy pants program. In the meantime, here is my easy peasy lemon squeezy way of adding watermarks to my blog photos. I hope it helps!
Before you begin, you will need a watermark. You can contact any blog designer. They can usually do it for you pretty inexpensively. I used the A.MA.ZING LaNesha Tabb, who also designed my whole blog and Facebook banners. Cute, right?
You will also need a photo editing program. I use Paint.net because, um, it's free and it works really well.
