Adding watermarks to photos

You can help protect your images by adding a watermark to your photos. A watermark in Picasa is white text that's added to the lower-right corner of photos during the export or upload process. To add a watermark to a photo, please use the following steps:

During export

  1. Select the photos you'd like to export.
  2. Click the Export button in the Photo Tray.
  3. Select the 'Add a watermark' checkbox.
  4. In the watermark box, enter your watermark text.
  5. Click OK. Your photos will be exported with your watermark in place.

While uploading

  1. Before you upload, click Tools > Options (Windows) or Picasa > Preferences (Mac).
  2. Select the Picasa Web Albums or Google+ Photos tab.
  3. Select the 'Add a watermark for all uploads' checkbox.
  4. In the watermark box, enter your watermark text.
  5. Click OK. All uploaded photos will possess your chosen watermark.
Picasa will never make changes to your original photo file. Exporting and uploading pictures with edits or watermarks applied creates an edited JPG copy of the original photo.
