Walker you take a huge amount of photographs and I notice you copyright each and every one of them. Is there an easy one step way to do it all or do you do each one individually? Is it in your Adobe Lightroom software?

I haven't lurked on your site for awhile and my log in still works YAY !!

What are you shooting with now as I am sure you are not using the 30D anymore. I am still using the Canon 400D. Really was hoping for the 50D before it was discontinued . I see the 60D isn't getting the reviews mostly due to the magnesium alloy body. Hoping to upgrade myself to the 5D next.

I was at the FOCUS camera show in Birmingham yesterday ( England not Alabama). I was disappointed Canon pulled out of the show. Since moving here to UK I have become a camera specialist for insurance replacement. I get to replace all the BER and lost/stolen cameras ! If you still had the 30D I'd be offering you the 60D as a replacement.

My best to you and Nancy. I always enjoy seeing the BVI through your lens.

Hi Charmaine! Indeed, long time no see.

I do use Adobe Lightroom. It is absolutely fantastic for processing. Lightroom can do copyright watermarking, but I do not do it with Lightroom. I use a program that I wrote (Pyzaz) to do my photo pages. I built a copyright watermark capability into it that automatically adds the date to the watermark.

Actually - I am still using the 30D, along with the 50D. The 30D has taken 11,000 shots - and I believe that it is as good as the 50D. As I type, the 30D is sitting right beside me with a 70-200 2.8 IS lens on it. It is a great camera, and I find using two bodies makes things a lot easier.

When I was shooting the flamingos back in January, I had the 70-200 on the 50D and a 100-400 on the 30D - and was constantly swapping bodies as the flamingos moved.

When we did the last set of Anegada aerial photos, I had both cameras shooting simultaneously - the 30D with a 15-85 and the 50D with a 24-70.

Next body will likely be a 7D or it's replacement. The 60D is definitely a step backward from the previous X0D line. I will not go to a plastic body camera.

Wow I'm impressed. I haven't treated myself to the 70-200mm 2.8 yet but I recently bought the 70-300mm IS USM. I agree with the two bodies. Its a pain in the butt changing lens all the time and I want another using all my CF cards I have accumulated so 7D is next on list.

We caught a lone flamingo on the salt pond on Beef Island when we were there in February. First time I seen one.

So... no easy way for me to watermark then Hummm back to Photoshop then.

Thanks Walker!

I use the info from walker to watermark pics for about a year now, mostly my youngest son's pics.
They have been in a lot of competitions and on the 'net. The adobe has worked well for us.
I too love the D50.

Walker - was I using the 50D? I'm looking at picking up a DSLR and have been trying to figure out which is my best body option. The 50D is gone now, but the 7D looks pretty nice....

You were shooting with my 30D. The 7D is a good choice. I would buy one myself except for the fact that the model is now 2 years old and Canon should be coming out with a 7D MkII in the near future.

I can't figure out how to make a watermark using Photoshop.

Photoshop does not have a watermark capability as such. You can manually add a watermark to an image by adding a type (text) layer and using the layer blending options to make the watermark appear as you want it.

Here is a video showing an example - http://video.about.com/graphicssoft/Watermark-Images-in-Photoshop.htm
