We all know that there is no end to content theft. People not only steal your text but also images causing your bandwidth loss too. How about using those images to brand your blog and also drive traffic? Watermarking is one way, which you can use to drive traffic from images. Though there is no easy or very effective way to add watermark to previously uploaded images into WordPress, but here is a plugin which will help you to add Watermark to images which you will upload from now on.
Watermark reloaded is one of those plugin which I added in the list of must have WordPress plugins. This plugin setting is configurable and you can add watermark at your desired place.
As you can see, Watermark reloaded plugin gives you ample amount of options to configure your watermark and according to design and look of your blog, you can customize the view of watermark.
More over by adding watermark, you help in branding of your blog and also when a user copies your post, your image watermark will be visible and this will also help you to get direct traffic.
For more effective use, try to use complete name of your domain instead of using any short form. For example, ShoutMeLoud.com is more effective than using only “ShoutMeLoud”.
Though this plugin is just for WordPress, but if you use any other blogging platform, I would suggest read my post on How to add watermark into images using windows live writer.
