10 Excellent Tools to Add Text and Watermarks to Images

Web 2.0 technologies have made image textification super easy. Anyone without having any advanced image editing skills can add text or watermarks to their images. There are several reasons why  to add some text to your image. For instance, for us in education, adding text to a picture is a good way to illustrate a point or aid in a better understanding of the idea being communicated through that image. However, to avoid copyright issues I would recommend that you use your own pictures and images or look for free licensed images from these sites and make sure the license clearly states that you can add to the copyrighted work.

Watermarking is basically done to protect original pictures from being used by others under another name. Through a watermark added to the image, the original owners of images make sure their brand name is kept in the image wherever it is used.
