Q: I have a problem I would like to ask for your help with. I have just found a series of historically very important photographs of a very famous psychoanalyst that I took many years ago, and I have been asked to make them available to an academic institution that wishes to incorporate them into a book, classes, seminars, etc.

I would like to embed in each photograph, before sending them, a copyright symbol, and a photo credit (Photo by Edward H Stein, M.D.). Is there a way I can do this in Picasa? I know it can be done in Photoshop, but I am not adept at using Photoshop.

A:
Yes, when you Export there is an option to add a watermark.
Also, when you upload to Picasa Web Albums or Google+ there is an option for watermark. For this you need to go to tools Options Google+ Photos and check the box for watermarks.

The simple way of making a copyright symbol is just with parens and a c like: (c)  The actual symbol © can usually be made by holding down your Alt key and typing 0169 on a numeric keypad, then letting go of the alt.  If you don’t have a numeric keypad, then you need to use the Windows Character Map to find the symbol and copy it.
