Copyright sign on photos

Question: I like how you put a copyright sign and your name on all your pictures. Could you tell me the program you use to do this, and how you do it?

Answer: Essentially, I open up the file in Photoshop and add text to it, it's that simple. I do it in light grey, so that won't be too strong on the image. If you don't have Photoshop, then you can use Window's Paint program just as well.

Here's a tip: to input the "copyright sign", instead of typing on your keyboard, press the Alt button and then 0169 numbers on your numeric keypad. Then type the rest of your name.
