    Hi
    When selecting any jpeg there is an option to rightclick then choose properties...which gives image summary

    Q= In own images... how do you place info here, so that it travels with the image and shows for others to see who is author etc?

    thanks

    with an image open in photoshop click file> file info and select exif. lots of beautiful bits of information about the shot yu've taken. this file usually includes the serial number of your camera, you should be able to add some data to it as well, such as your name, the customer and the image rights

    Exif is fine for that except it can be got rid of. Obviously copywrite issues are a worry to you.
    You could watermark a corner of the image with one of your own design. Text is easier to clone out.

    If you have photoshop go to the filter menu and down to digimarc - embed watermark. You are then presented with various options.
