Why should I brand my photos?

To increase recognition and awareness of your company or special event through pictures on social media. Having your logo on the pictures you post is indirect advertising, with the intent of associating your pictures with your company or special event. After a bit of repetition, people will easily remember you and where you work, what you sell, or special events that you are associated with.

Yes, you can create a text logo or a text watermark in Branded-Pix. You can “brand” photos with the event name, just your initials, the date or whatever you wish.

You can search the web for “logo maker,” “logo creator” or “free logo generator,” etc., to find the site or service that suits your needs, or you can find individuals to create an inexpensive logo at sites like http://www.fiverr.com. You can also use common programs like Paint or MAC Program to create your own. You can even import clip art or “royalty free” images and modify them to suit your taste. Just make sure you have permission to use other people’s images if you choose that option. Branded-Pix accepts any image that your mobile gallery recognizes as a picture including BMP, PNG, JPG, GIF, TIFF, etc. We suggest that you import a color version, a black version, and a white version of your logo for maximum contrast between your logo and the photo subject.
