I am asked all the time why I don't add a watermark to my images posted on line. I am not sure exactly why I don't do it. But it is something I think about all of the time.

I used to think it was just too much trouble and a hassle to add a watermark. But recently I discovered a free online program called Picmarkr. It took me about 30 seconds to add a watermark and the program offers lots of options. You can add the image just about anywhere on the photo and you can choose white ink, black ink, etc. Here are two different options I used to watermark one of my newer paintings.


Posting your artwork online is crucial to getting your art seen by others. If you are worried about dishonest people stealing your image then add a watermark. It's your choice!

The Day 28 Challenge is to try Picmarkr, as it is a free online program. It takes less than a minute to watermark one of your images. Even if you don't decide to use it, book mark the site because you may need it later.
