I think that the subject of how to edit photos to include copyright notice 'watermarks', frames, and the like has come up here a few times. Someone asked me about a similar thing recently, so I thought I'd put what I told them here too.
There is a very nifty tool called Picnik that does these things very easily. They didn't have the text overlay feature before, and I requested it a while back (I'm sure they got lots of requests for this) and now they have it.
I've put up a quick and dirty demo of what can be done with the free version of the tool on my flickr page - integration with flickr is seamless, and they say they have Picasa integration too. (They have a pay version which I haven't signed up for yet.) The photo editing tools like sharpen, color correction and so on seem to be pretty good too. Not as robust as Photoshop of course..but there is a price difference. I do use Photoshop myself but this should be great for most users...I think I'll use it when I'm on the road without my laptop.
(I have no ties, commercial or otherwise, with the site, etc.)
