Google Photos -Is There a Way to Include Watermark (Copyright)?

Follower ✭ ✭ ☆

I admit that I absolutely love Google Photos and it is my "go to" for photo organization of photos taken on my phone. However, I can't seem to find a way to add a watermark (or copyright). I know Picasso had this feature, but since Google doesn't support that anymore, I was wondering if somehow Google brought that feature forward to Photos., and I just haven't found it yet.

Hi @Tracey Banning,

 

Google Photos does not (yet) include this feature.

 

If you still have Google Picasa, you can use that or Photoshop or some cameras will batch add one, depending on model. You can also use a Google App from a third-party to do so.  

 

Kind Regards,

 

James

@J Clemens As always, thank you for your input.

 

I will say, what a bummer.  I was hoping that I could add a watermark in Google Photos, to make my life easier, but maybe that feature will come in an update.  Or maybe, Google will roll out a new app that will allow quick edits to photos, and the ability to add a quote or some other words to the photo which will work hand in hand with Google Photos. (Google, if you are listening, hint, hint.)

 

Anyway, James, I do appreciate your input.

 

Take care.

 

Tracey

I would love to have this feature, too. In case you hadn't, if you log in to photos.google.com and click on the 3 lines in the top, left corner, there is an option for sending feedback. Maybe if enough of us do this, they will make it a priority.

@Tracey Banning - try Adobe Spark for your watermarks. I know it's not exactly what you want to do, but it's one of the best options out there for you. I'm sure you'll love all the other features it provides as well.

You can always make yourself a watermark as a png file with a transparent background that you can overlay on photos that you do not want people to be able to copy and use. That involves the least work outside the initial file creation.
