    You need a program to do it. Alot of people use photoshop. I'm not going to talk about the where abouts of getting it. Instead I'll give you a free alternative called paint.net. It's a major extention to paint and it will allow you to do the water marking.

    Picasa 3 is another freeware program that has a function to watermark photographs.

    Well to add text with photoshop, select the A thing on the tool bar to the left and make a box. Type your text, then change your front on the top. It's pretty simple. Your friend should be able to show you so you get more of a hands on experience. It takes seconds to learn really.

    You use a graphics editing application. There are 2 kinds of graphics - raster graphics and vector graphics.

    There are some free raster graphics applications online, like GIMP.org and Photoscape.org.

    Inexpensive graphics applications like PaintShop Pro X5 and Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 are mostly raster graphics editors but have some limited vector graphics capabilities.

    Hopefully your buddy won't hook you up with an illegal, pirated copy of Photoshop.

    Responding to a 4-year-old thread? I suspect the OP figured it out by now.

    LOL! I missed it. I'm guessing a spammer dug it up.
