Is there a way to add my © to the photos?

Not currently. What would be your ideal way of adding your copyright to images?

Ideally — to have a setting where I could type what I wanted to have my copyright say(ie ©2010 Lida Verner - All Rights Reserved) and have it automatically applied to a particular portion of the image with the ability to adjust the opacity. Secondly — to have a button that would allow for the setting of the copyright/text and then allow for manual positioning and opacity.

Thanks for your response, Lida. I'm changing this topic from Question to Idea so we can keep track of it as a feature to add in a future version of Instagram and so others can add their thoughts on this topic.

Maybe it could be fixed using some watermark app before to post it in Instagram.

I am already doing that but it would be nice to have a "one stop shop" so to speak.

I've come late to this party, I see (just sent an email to IG requesting this and was pointed to this forum...)

How about offering a way to add a copyright by inserting text into the frame edge of each filter, kinda like how dates used to be printed there on old prints.

Kind of like this: http://instagr.am/p/EFh_1/

(run through IG, then iWatermark, then back through IG with no effects). I wish the font was narrower and a little smaller, but those were limitations within iWatermark.

This is a great idea! It is so time-consuming to add a copyright graphic in another app and then bring it back to IG. It would be great if we could apply a text copyright or a custom graphic on upload.
