Re: Adding copyright information

Peter, I didn’t get this. I should upload it to where?

There are many Exif viewers. I just picked the one I prefer.
If you use DPP4 I think Ctrl+I will show you the Exif data.

 

Exif is embedded and not visible when looking at the picture. If you want your name on the picture you should search for watermark instead.

DCS 3c, DCS 520, D30, D60, 1Ds, 300D, 30D, 1000D IR, 7D, 6D, 6D, M5
15-45/3.5-6.3 IS, 16-35/4 IS, 22/2, 24/1.4 II, 24-105/4 IS, 50/1.4, 85/1.8, 100/2.8, 70-200/2.8 IS II, 300/2.8 IS

Re: Adding copyright information

This doesn't add a watermark - the copyright information will not be visible on the image, it's in the embedded EXIF information of the image. For a watermark, you will need to use your post-processing (editing) software of choice.

I get the impression that he wants his copyright information to show somewhere on the face of the image itself. Like a small imprint at the bottom of his photos that states something like "Sandesh1, © 2020". This would have to be applied after the fact to a copy of the image as a watermark. It can be done in Photoshop and probably any other of the better photo editors.

 

Or without buying any additional software it can also be done with a free download of Irfanview. Plus Irfanview has a lot of other handy features for things like file renaming and image resizing. I've never seen anything in the Canon software that will add a watermark to your images.

 

. . .And once again, Stephen is on the case. Robot wink

Ah, but what if your post-processing software of choice is DPP4 (as it is in my case)? Wouldn't it be a fine idea to add that capability to that otherwise highly capable editor? AFAIK, it isn't there now.

Yeah, Ernie, we all know how you feel about DPP. We also know that you've barely tried it. So your opinion is worth about as much as my opinion of Lightroom. But FWIW, I do acknowledge that LR is probably very good at what it does best.

Robert you might be surprised there, my friend.
