within the last few weeks, i’ve received several questions about the “copyright tags” that i put in my photos, so i’ve decided to assemble a short how-to.
most of you probably think you need fancy image manipulation programs like photoshop, but it’s actually quite simple – all you need is a piece of paper, a pc&printer (if you don’t want it to be hand-written), and a pair of scissors. :-)
see for yourself:
the motive for this practical course is dagmario, a little zwetschkenkrampus (plum krampus) that i got from kathrin. it also prooves that he’s still alive and well.
some additional hints:
- choose a high aperture (f-number) for maximum sharpness of both the copyright-tag and the motive.
- you can individually set the size of the tag by moving the paper closer to/away from the camera.
- if you don’t have three arms, a tripod is worth a lot!
