A Bizarre thing happened today:

Several years ago I went to the Reagan Library in Simi and took a few pictures. Today I edited one of the pictures of a piece of the Berlin Wall so I could post it on my FB page to commemorate today's 25th anniversary of the Wall coming down. After I finished editing and saved it to my desktop, I noticed in the lower left of the picture: "Copyright Dee Dee Flores 2010". I AM NOT Dee Dee Flores and have no clue who this person is. Then I went back to the original image and did a right click, selected "properties" and then "details". In the "Authors" row it read "Photographer Dee Dee Flores" and a bit below under "Copyright" it reads "Copyright DeeDeeFlores 2010". I then realized that you can "select" the "Copyright" row and delete what's in there. I did that and then edited my image again and this time the image came out fine. I took about 12 pictures that day and went through each one of those and it's the same with all the photo's. My question is: These are ABSOLUTELY my photo's which I took. How in the world does "DeeDee Flores" show up on MY pictures as the photographer and Copyright owner? I'm PERPLEXED! Please help. Thank You.

What camera body did you use? Was it second hand?

Did you buy a used camera once belonging to Dee Dee Flores? If so, that name may be embedded in the camera's memory. You can edit it using the EOS Utility.

Good Question. I don't recall. I'm currently using a Canon 60D. The image details indicate it was taken with my T1i. I don't have that anymore and I don't recall if the T1i was purchased privately or brand new. I guess I could try and backtrack and look up some of my other photo's from 2011 (when the image in question was taken) and see if those also reflect the same "copyright" information.

Sounds like previous owner details in the camera then your pp software has used that info to create a watermark

Yep, that was the person that probably owned your camera body back in 2010.

Think of this as a learning experience, and a lesson to always reset any used camera to its original factory settings. Your manual will tell you how.

This exact thing happened to me the other day. I purchased a used 1D3 and it still had the previous owners name in it. For a couple months I had his name in my metadata.

That is an automatic watermark generated by LR by using the copyright information in the EXIF data. This is what I usually use.
