Original Post

Can anyone recommend a site or software to add watermarks to photos?
Picnik is recommended in a book I have, but apparently it is no more :(
I'm a total luddite, so I'd prefer something easy to understand.
And free, if possible.
Thanks!

"FastStone Image Resizer" worked for me before I got Photoshop :)

Photoscape or GIMP (v2) is like a suuper-simple version of PS and it's free

I've had all these programs before so if you do end up getting them I can walk you through the programs via e-mail or whatever! <3

Thanks, Caitlin!!
I'll have to take a look at them and see if any of it makes sense to ol' technophobic me :)

Hmm.. Photoscape at least seems to be in English, but I'm not sure I'd ever be able to figure it out.
Anyone else who's not a techie have any suggestions? All I really want to be able to do is super-impose my shop name over some of my pictures of things like postcards and advertisements so people don't steal them.
I'm WAY too challenged to start editing photos, beyond cropping and fixing the exposure.

here's the link on how to add a watermark with gimp
