: I would be grateful if anyone could give me detailed information on how to copyright photographs in the UK.
My recollection of the law is that you may not have to do anything not even a copyright notice. You are safe though using a c in a circle, your name and year of publication, notice on the photograph. This protects you in at least 75 countries, although if action is necessary the steps for registration must be taken on a country by county basis. As a caution the US copyright should be applied for within three months of "publication". Without a copyright notice or prompt filing there are losses and difficulties.
