how to encrypt an image
With the onset of personal blogs and websites, a greater number of people have become more
and more conscious of the need to establish your work as yours. This gets more and more difficult
when it comes to image files. Just about anything published to the Internet can simply be stolen
through a quick ‘copy' and ‘paste' function. This is a fact that has been understood by
photographers for years but new Instagram, Snapchat, and Pinterest users are just starting to
understand the implications. One easy way to ensure the protection of your work is to simply add
an irremovable mark to your images. This make sure that all of your images have your information
displayed and ownership can readily be established.
There are currently several options that allow for watermarks to be placed within an image. One
option is through Microsoft Paint. This typical program is a default on all PCs. The image can be
opened for edit by right clicking it and choosing ‘Edit'. From this point, a watermark can be
dragged onto the image by clicking the Insert tab and clicking picture. The watermark must initially
be created and then saved to the computer however, a time consuming process. Another choice
is through the use of Picassa, which is image software produced by Google. Picassa provides the
ability to place a watermark in image files as they are uploaded. However, just one watermark
location is offered. This is hard if the images being marked have individual watermark needs.
However, the biggest downside of both programs is simply that they don't allow for many image
files to be processed at once. Every file must be separately chosen to be watermarked, and, in
the case of Microsoft Paint, each watermark needs to be dragged in place by hand. For the avid
photographer who may have as many as thousands of images, these techniques are simply
A must-have application for any image creator is the ‘How to Encrypt Image Files with Text'
program available at www.hothotsoftware.com. The program sports a typical user interface,
making it usable by anyone on a computer. The program begins with an easy choice of image
files to be watermarked. This may include 1 image file or 100 image files. Secondly, the desired
encoded phrase is entered. For example "© My Pictures" can be entered as the watermark. This
message is then encrypted within the image file by clicking the ‘Encrypt All Images in File List'
button at the bottom of the window. The software also features the decoding capabilities so that
you can verify the watermark on the image. The watermark may have your name or website on it,
helping to ensure knowledge that an image is yours if people desire to purchase and use your
images. This is safer than traditional watermarks as computer savvy editors can get rid of a visible
watermark. Whether for the professional photographer or labeling treasured photographs, this
software can free up hours of your time.
