How to Insert a Watermark in iPhoto
Watermarks make duplication and image theft more difficult. (Hemera Technologies/ Images)

Although there's no easy way to create a watermark using the basic iPhoto program, Apple does offer an iPhoto add-on called Impression that allows you to do so. This watermark can be a barcode, a logo, or text. Watermarks are useful if you wish to keep your digital images from being stolen on the Internet or used without your permission.
