Watermarking Images.

Does anyone know of a free download for doing this or is it better to buy a program ?
Although I don't mind people sharing my images etc , I've found some instances where others are using my stuff to promote business and 2 occasions where fraud has been attempted.

Thanks for any replies.

Try irfanview.
You'll have to read up on watermarking with it as it's not exactly intuitive but it's free and you can watermark a whole folder in one go.

No idea man, but how did you find out people are using your images illicitly? I have an awful lot of images that I'd rather not see used that way.

Cheers Dex , I've downloaded Mass Watermark now but having trouble activating it. Should have it going tomorrow.

I started a Custom Guitar page on Facebook and after a while I started getting private information from some of the followers ( they are "all" really nice people on that page) leading me to the culprits . I kept it to myself so I could keep gathering information.

A lot of it was just people sharing and posting to other places like Guitar Porn etc which doesn't bother me at all.

Re: Watermarking Images.

Any program that deals with transparencies and layers should be able to do it. I know The Gimp is free.

I use Photoshop, but's it's definitely not free.
