Add name to my fotos by image editing software
What is the best way to add my name to the bottom of my pictures, like 
Don has here: 

It's just a matter of typing some text. Lots of programs can do it. 

But why not add your name just under the photo rather than defacing your image? 

(Typing name/copyright on your photo doesn't prevent someone from stealing it. I can clone Don's name out with a few mouse clicks.)

Colour correction in image editing software

I think this should be in the tutorials section but I don¡¯t seem to have permission.

Although I think I know Photoshop quite well, I could never get my head around using the Curves adjusment for correcting colour cast. I came across a tutorial yesterday that explaines it perfectly and since trying it on a few photo¡¯s the results are much better than the way I used to do it.
The tutorial is here.

You are correct, we closed off the tutorial and links section and its only open to the mod team for posting purposes,the reason for this is so we keep it clear of additional posts, but if someone such as yourself finds something (or writes it) and you do as you have here even possibly pm'ing one of the mod team (or even me) we will look at it and copy it into the tutorials section on your behalf. At the same time leaving the original thread for members to discuss.

I will pop this thread into the Photo editing software section for discussion purposes.

GIMP for MacOSX (Free photo editor)
GIMP is a popular open-source image editor originally developed for Unix/Linux. Often lauded as the "free Photoshop," it does have an interface and features similar to Photoshop. Because it's volunteer-developed beta software, stability and frequency of updates could be an issue; however, many happy users report using GIMP for OS X without significant problems. GIMP is not compatible with Mac OS 9 and earlier.

Zap the Red-Eye photo editing 
Using your camera's flash can sometimes cause the dreaded red-eye effect. If your photos look like they're filled with demonic partygoers, you can zap the red-eye out of your shots automatically in many image editors. In Paint Shop Pro, choose Effects, Enhance Photo, Red-Eye Removal, then zoom in on the red eyes and create a circle of color directly over the red spot. 

If you have a basic image editor, like Irfan Skiljan's IrfanView or Microsoft Paint, that doesn't have an auto-correction tool, just zoom in on the eyes and paint over the red with a natural-looking shade of black or blue. 

Remember that you don't have to be Picasso to eliminate red-eye convincingly. When you zoom back out, the eyes will be small enough that your brushwork should look more than adequate. The important thing is to paint over the red.
