Traditionally, watermarks were imprinted onto documents to identify their origin and therefore the owner/creator. These markings promoted originality and authenticity and also helped to prevent counterfeiting. Nowadays, watermarks along with copyright symbols are used for the same purpose but rather than physically printing them onto documents, you can do it electronically. The copyright symbol is one of the most popular watermarks, but photographers also use their name and/or company name.

As well as watermarks, you can also use text to add captions to your photos. For example, you could write the date, location or a memory about when/where the photo was taken.
