    Great info to have. Protecting our online properties is harder than ever, and pictures are especially easy to pilfer. So hats off for a good set of sites and tools that can help.

    Hello. Recently I created a page from within my personal Facebook profile. The page is to show friends and family some stuff I´m selling. My idea is to label the pictures as things get sold. I´ve been looking all over for online image editing tools for adding watermarks to photos on this page, but all these tools will only allow me to edit my profile pictures, but the ones in the page won´t be listed or appear anywhere. Any ideas on how to deal with this problem?

      Hi Andrew. I think you’re wanting to add a watermark (or “sold” verbiage) to photos that are already on Facebook? I don’t know of a way to do that.

      You could add it in a comment or the description, or just delete the photo.

    I was wondering if you knew how to add a symbol to the watermark. Like the name and a little symbol like a small diamond or something.

      Hey Crystal,
      I doubt that any of these free programs would allow you to do that easily. You’d probably need to create an art file that you could overlay in a graphics program, or on

      Most fonts have special symbols. You can access them by pressing a shortcut on your keyboard or using a special app – Character Map.

      Both Windows and Mac have programs that show a complete list of all available characters. On Windows, it’s under Start – All Programs – Accessories – System Tools – Character Map menu item. Start it. Find a symbol you want, click the Select button. Then click Copy to save the symbol into your clipboard. Switch to the watermarking program and paste the symbol (Ctrl + V) in a text field.

      This will work for every program you have. Should it be Microsoft Word or Google Chrome.

        That’s a fantastic tip, thanks Ivan!

        When I need symbols, I usually just paste in a symbol font, but this will be more flexible. I just never remember how to find those secret characters on Mac!

        I prefer to believe it’s from being blond rather than senile 😉

            That one I know oh-so-well 😉 It’s the shapes and smileys that I’m not sure about on Mac. We don’t have all the keyboard codes with strings of numbers – at least I’m not aware of it!

            Some icons sent from Windows aren’t recognized on Mac as well.

    Hello Louise,

    Thanks for this interesting & wonderful post. I came across while looking for some tools coz I had plans to have my photography blog :)

  11. Katherine Brady says

    Hello Louise. Maybe you can help me? I used paint in my windows program to add a text box to many pictures thinking it would act as a watermark. Not ever doing this before, I made the mistake of not checking it out first and now half these pictures are marked with no way to remove the text box. The paint program has no way to remove them, and in my photo program I cannot return it to original. Is there a way to remove these text boxes without ruining my beautiful photos? Thank you for any help you can give to me.

    • says

      Hi Katherine,
      Unfortunately, if you can’t remove the text boxes in the program that created them, I really don’t know how you would do it.

      Any chance you have a backup copy of your photos on your phone, camera, or elsewhere? Sorry I couldn’t help.

    I use iWatermark on my Mac, Windows tablet and iPhone and it works great! It’s definitely my favorite and I believe they have versions for Mac, Windows, Android and iOS. Check it out :)
