Adding your Name to Exif Data inside your Camera

This is for the people that do not know that you can add your name to the exif data on your camera, so if by chance that one of your images are stolen and posted on another site it is proof that it belongs to you, it will not show on Ephotozine but it will show up in Photoshop, you can also add a (C) copyright also, in my case ( C ) Ron Thomson would show on the original.

Here is how to do it on Nikon i take it Canon will be the same.

Menu,
Wrench
Set up
Image Comment,
Input Comment, type the name you want when finished click OK
Add Comment, click OK and make sure the small box has a tick.
Done, click OK
Take a Pic bring it up in Photoshop and your Name will be there.

This is only a way of protecting your images.

Great advice. I'd like to do that on my Canon but the menu system is slightly different. Anyone know how this is done on the Canon 400D.
Thanks

Well, unless someone edits the EXIF, which is pretty easy.

In my Canon you connect the camera to a PC and it is one of the options in the EOS utility. It turns up in the Owner EXIF field.

Makes no difference if someone edits the exif, you still have the original which no one can do anything to it and nobody can edit the exif in the camera only the owner,

I have no idea what you mean by this. If a JPEG file has EXIF data in it, this does not protect the file. It's like sticking a removable label on your expensive mountain bike and thinking noone will nick it.

not to mention the fact that most web sites strip the EXIF data completely, anyway...
