    I just found a person using my old profile picture! It's getting old... How can I watermark my pictures? Or what program can I get? Thanks

    biggrasp, the purpose of watermarking is to prevent someone from making profit or taking credit for a picture that you created. Watermarking it is still not going to keep people from using your pic, even if the watermark is clearly on the pic.
    Any photoshop software will allow you to watermark pics. Photoshop software, however, allows you to size, color, change their file type (bmp, jpg, etc), and basically clean up a photo for your personal use. I use Adobee Photoshop 7.0 to create pics & captions here. You can find free photoshop software that will do the basic stuff ... check out this link:

    Good advice, but couldn't he place the watermark across his body on his pictures, so then any attempt by somebody else to get around the watermark would essentially render the picture unusable to them?

    For open-source, free, downloadable software to do that, try GIMP (Gnu Image Manipulation Program).

    A few pictures I posted on other sites were copied and re-posted on other guys profiles.Now I'm reluctant to post any new pictures.

    bm, that doesn't make the pic "unusable" however, ... a person can still copy & save a watermarked pic. It just makes that pic unsuitable for professional use or resale. (see pic below which I just typed across)
    There is a software(s) however, that disables a pic from being saved. They use it in Yahoo's Flickr groups.

    NICE JOB, MAC! Clean. Unobtrusive.
    All,
    Watermarking will not necessarily solve your problems, but it will make it more difficult to steal your photos. Not impossible. Just more difficult.
    Unfortunately, there are many people (both men and women) on all kinds of sex or dating sites who do this, because they are not confident enough in their own pics.
