Are you saying you are publishing your images on a website, and want to put a copyright watermark on them, so people don't download and use them without consent?

... if you put this on your photos, they are copyrighted to you.

If your wanting to watermark your photos then you need an image editing program to do so, use the text tool to put the copyright text onto the image, preferably onto a different layer so as not to damage the original image, once you have the text you can then lower the opacity to make it less visible.

Make sure that you save the image under a different name so you do nor over write and spoil your original.

If using Windows as an OS, then use ALT+0169 to get the © up.

martjc, if you took the photo its your copyright whether it is watermarked or not.

All photographs are copyright-protected - you don't need to put any symbol on them. Copyright in all photographic images is automatically vested in the person who took the photograph, unless he/she signs an agreement to the contrary.

Most people aren't aware of this, but it's a fact. If you engage a wedding photographer the copyright in your wedding photos belongs to him or her - not to you.
