    Hi all, I'm just wondering if there is any way to add a small 'copyright' message to a photo in iPhoto. I know that you can in PS, but I don't have PS, and now have a few photos on a flickr site, but have noticed others have copyright message on their pics, and thinking it may be a good idea. If anyone has any ideas/solutions I'd love to hear them... Thanks...:)

    You need an graphics editor to do it. iPhoto is not really an editor. It cannot add text to images.

    There's plenty of free or shareware graphics programs you could use, you don't need to cough up for photoshop.

    Sweet, could anyone recommend me to a good one? When you do a Google search there are so many out there that I just don't know where to start!:confused:

    I just tried adding text in Seashore and it works fine. I'm sure you could create a layer that you could quickly add onto all photos you want to put the copyright on. I'd tell you if I knew how.

    Try looking on versiontracker.com - much more organized than a google search.

    And when you're on there, GraphicConverter is worth a look. It's been around for years. I'm sure others will be able to recommend lots of other programs.
