I know I usually write a Housekeeping post on Saturdays but this week I’ve chosen to do this instead which has been part of my blog Housekeeping over the past week. There is nothing bugging me today!

This information will probably be helpful to anyone taking part in the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge.

How To Add Copyright To Photos Using Picasa

I don’t have Photoshop, so I’ve used Picasa to finally add the copyright symbol – © – to my photos.

It was actually quite easy.

Open Picasa
Select your photo
Select Text

Select the Font, Size, Style, Colour and add anywhere in the photo – don’t worry, the text can be moved if you don’t like the position.

How to add Copyright symbol using Picasa

Nothing is changed on your original photo until you click the Apply button and save the file.

When I saved my photos, I added the copyright symbol © to the file name using the keyboard shortcut Alt0169. This is an easy way to recognise which photos you’ve added the copyright to.

To insert the copyright symbol ©, hold down the Alt key and type 0169 on the numeric pad on your keyboard. For those who have a laptop without a separate numeric keypad, hold down both Alt and the Fn keys to activate the numeric pad on the keyboard. Look for the small blue numbers.

You can also insert the copyright symbol using the Custom Character button Insert Custom Character in the Visual post editor but you have to make sure you are showing what WordPress calls the Kitchen Sink.

It’s really not that complicated to add the copyright, just remember to save your photo with a different name so that the original isn’t changed.

Will you be adding the copyright to your photos?

Quote for today

The fact that I can plant a seed and it becomes a flower,
share a bit of knowledge and it becomes another’s,
smile at someone and receive a smile in return,
are to me continual spiritual exercises.
