Yes, that is correct.

The easiest form of watermarking is simply placing a piece of txt on any image stating who owns it ... like (c) nivinjoy 2007 for example.

Some photo editing programs allow you to add a watermark through their own little function.

Placing a watermark in photoshop is sooooooo easy , ill try and explain..

Ok lets make a test file for this, i dont have PS open right now so ill just guess the paths and stuff.

File->New

Dimensions

400x400

Transparent Background



Okay so you currently have one layer, now this is where we want our image.. Place a pic of you or, whatever it is on that layer. Next press CTRL + Shift + N to create a new layer, look in your layer window (should be on the right) make sure the top layer is selected, this is the layer you want your mark on. so just make your mark, and then if you want you can overlay blend it or change the opacity of it. Play around with it... Or if you wanna learn more photoshop (cuz im a bad PS teacher lol) go to err.... tutorialized.com they have some good tuts there.

Hope This helps

You should rather try Watermark Factory - advanced watermark creator OR PhotoWatermark Professional 7, if you want to create watermarks on more images at once (batch). Those programs are specialized for such things. Watermark Factory is very easy to use, you can watermark whole album witch just few click, while PhotoWatermark Professional gives you a lot more functions and freedom but it's a little bit more complicated.

Scientifically setting watermarks is a method to be sure that data is not korrupted and from a known source.
As far as I understood, you talked about viewable watermarks. These watermarks are easy to find, but hard to delete.
But there is a second kind of digital watermarks: hidden watermarks. There are techniques for example with hash codes to give a proof of integrity of the data.

For more information, have a look here:

It can be done by giving transparent effect on photoshop...

I think you could find it on the effect menu (the one which contains effects like glow etc...)

Watermarks is a necessity for all your images. Alot of people steal images and sell it for their gain without recognition to the owners. I watermark all my images, even though I know how easy it is to remove it in photoshop at least it makes it a lil harder for image thieves. Simple to add in photoshop, just use the text tool and write your name or alias on the image, usually make it non obstrusive but thats a personal preference of mine.
