markphotos.py script adds a copyright notice to JPEG pictures as metadata.
Update: This script was moved to my scripts repo on github on 2017-12-28.
It is written in python (version 3) and uses exiftool. This is not
a visible notice, but one contained in the file’s metadata. The following in
an excerpt from the
identify --verbose output of a photos that was marked

To speed up the processing of multiple pictures, this script runs in parallel
on all the cores that your machine has. If you want to add a visual watermark
to a picture, I suggest using the
mogrify program from the ImageMagick suite.
Edit the script and change the string
cr in the function
processfile to something appropriate before using this script!
