I now most people are in to digital this and digital that, however I still use a 35 mm camera. Many photo sites will copyright your photos for you, as you have to say that you are the person who took the photo, digital or 35 mm. That helps as far as the copyright. Now for protecting them. I like to put them on my personal site, that way I can use a throw away address from the site as I've even had a copyrighted photo stolen. It had a copyright on it because it became part of a book on photography, and the copyright was done for me, and the photo is now in the Library of Congress. But sometimes, no matter how hard you try, (copyright), (sending it to yourself through the US mail will also copyright it), some people will steal photos.
Anyway, I prefer to put them safely on my site and then use the throw away address so people cannot get back to the site and copy every single photo.
I have a Windows XP, NT, 2000, which I guess I am going to have to upgrade soon.
Do take care, and if you feel you have to use a watermark, by all means, do so
