Watermarking and Adding Copyright Info

This two-part technique is particularly important if you’re putting your proofs on the Web for client approval. In the first part of this technique, you add a see-through watermark, so you can post larger proofs without fear of the client downloading and printing them; and secondly, you embed your personal copyright info so if your photos are used anywhere on the Web, your copyright info goes right along with the file.
