A friend of mine told me that if I am a serious blogger. All my photos must have its own trademark. Which I can that this photos is mine and plagiarism can be avoided. I am thinking if there is someone who can help me about my problem. I want to have a free software for watermark? If none is free, how much is the cheaper watermark I can purchase online.

I agree with what your friend told you. It really is a preventive way not to be plagiarize over cyberspace with the help of a watermark/trademark on your online contents. I've done some watermarking also with my photography works which i posts on a photo-sharing site that i am registered. Well, your problem is quite simple and has a simple solution. You can either download and install a free open source imaging software that has the capability to place watermarks on your content. You may try Gimp since it's the most "Photoshop" alike open source imaging software that can do watermarking. All you need is to layer the text on your content and then presto! You have yourself your own watermark. (There are some helpful tutorials on gimp in youtube also, so it's not that complex to learn the software) and to customize your text characters to use on your watermark, you can download some fonts on dafonts.com or try to search some free fonts on deviantart. If you don't want to download any software, you can also use an online imaging editor named picnik which is a fun and non-complex image editing tool wherein you can overlay your text to your image to make a water-mark effect on your photographs have a great day!

You could always use Picassa. All you have to do is export and there is an option to add watermark.

I think I am using visual watermark (it is free at the moment because the software is still under beta). You don't need to download any softwares because it's web-based. I don't always use it. I am a blogger and whenever I post some pictures to my blog, I use a html script to block people from downloading my pictures. But lately, for security sake, I've started to use it again although I find it so time-consuming and troublesome to watermark every photo. So, if I have lots of picture to share, I just watermark a few and the rest I convert to video and post to youtube. Happy mylotting!

Hey it's nice to watermark your photos for your blog. Here I am listing free software for watermarking: Alamoon Watermark TSR Watermark Image software Watermarklib uMark lite visual watermark. But I am advise that instead of using watermark software just open your photo in paint and add some text related to your site in a region where someone can't change that using photoshop.
