How to watermark your photos using PicMonkey!

Hi! I’m Shannon and I blog at

Rebecca is off having a fabulous time in Spain 
and while she is away on vacation, 
she invited me over to show you how to 
watermark your photographs using

PicMonkey is a great photo editing website. 
I find it user friendly and easy to navigate.
I’m not paid by or affiliated with PicMonkey.
I just love it.
And I think you’ll love it too!

Watermarking your photos is important if you share them anywhere on the internet. 

It simply says… this is my property.

Here is an example of a photo with no watermark.

A dishonest person could, for instance, easily write a blog post claiming they picked these flowers from their garden and arranged them.
And oh aren’t they just lovely.
Or, maybe their hubby or latest boy-toy 
brought them home to them.
Blah~blah… whatever.
You get the picture {no pun intended} right?

All it takes is a little something 
to protect your flowers, your kitchen remodel, 
a handmade craft… 
even your KIDS!

Here is an example of a photo with a watermark.

Step-by-Step Watermarking Instructions.

1. Open
2. Click on the box that says;

3. Select the photo you want to watermark.
