Okay, I said i would explain my insistence on getting Live Writer to work, so here it is:
Quite awhile ago, a fellow blogging friend of mine discovered that someone had stolen pictures of her children from her blog and was using them without her permission. I think that the stranger had entered one of my friend’s pics in a contest, claiming credit for him or herself! After that, my friend started putting a watermark on all the pictures she posted to her blog.
At that time, I considered that I might want to do the same to protect my own pictures, but like most things, I put it off and put it off and then forgot about it!
Well, a couple of weeks ago, I received an email from a friend with a link to an ABC.com news article about a family who discovered that some scammer had stolen pics of their son from their blog and was using them to advertise for a child who was up for adoption! Can you imagine! You casually glance at an adoption advertiselent and discover your own child in the picture!
After that, I was determined to have watermarks on my pics, at least from now on! I don’t know if I can go back and add them to previous posts or not. I haven’t tried it. But they are on now! Windows live Writer is a free download that works with Blogger and will add a watermark to pictures easily. I love the program! It’s so easy to use, and I love that I can crop and edit pics right there in Live Writer!
It was just a little tricky getting the pictures to work right. Once i knew what to do, fixing the problem was easy! I just had a little trouble finding out what to do. I finally had to send an email to the Live Writer support team. Their response was fast, pleasant, and exactly the answer I needed!
So if you want watermarks on your pics, I recommend Windows Live Writer! And if you have trouble publishing your posts with pictures, let me know! I might have an answer for you!
