How to add watermark and links to your images using Windows Live Writer

Windows Live Writer is one such utility which you cannot resist using, if you are a passionate blogger, who blogs often using Word Press, Blogger or any other blogging service provider. It is simple yet powerful and elegant at the same time.

One great feature which i find very useful in Windows Live Writer is of Watermark. To get started first configure the Windows Live Writer.

To Watermark the images follow these simple steps:

  • Click on Insert and then on Picture.


  • Select From your computer or From the Web as per your need.
  • After you have inserted the picture, click on Watermark.



  • A window will pop where you can enter the Watermark text and can set the position, size and font family.


I have added The Windows Club logo as picture and added the Watermark  Text.



  • Now you can feel the power of this tool! What is more interesting that it has variety of fonts. You should be delighted to find such a good number of font families which comes with such a simple tool. The number is really big.
  • Adding just a Watermark is always not useful. You should link the picture to the source or to any other link. To achieve this go to Properties -> Link To:Source Picture ->Web address



If you have added the correct website address, then it should link to the website properly.
