Watermarking an image is what photographers, websites (like us) and other creative designers do quite often. The most important reason is so people can’t steal your work as their own. You can photoshop away a watermark but a good size watermark will be almost impossible to photoshop away. Tools like Lightroom, Photoshop and other image importers can automatically include a watermark on import. However, if you don’t use such tools than Watermark Software from Watermark-Software.com might be a very good choice, let’s find out?
Watermark Software has all the features you need from a watermarking tool; you can include your own watermark image or add your own text. It has the option to batch process all your images by simply adding them all in the first screen you get from the program.
Watermark Software allows you all the freedom to create your own watermark. This can be done by typing your own text or by simply using an image that you have saved somewhere on your system.
When the user has applied all the watermarks he wanted to add to the image he can then click on Save and Create a New Layer. The user can then start the batch process and let the program watermark all images within a few seconds.
Watermark Software also includes some more powerful options such as adding frames, cropping, resizing the image and renaming it. It can also when batch processing the images upload it automatically to a FTP location, decrease the quality or save it in another folder. The options do give the program a professional and very user friendly look.
On features Watermark Software scores a 9 out of 10. It simply includes all that you want from a Watermark Tool.
Design and Ease of Use
The program is well designed and quite user-friendly. However, and this is a big one. I do not agree on some of the color choices, the black letters on the greyish background can be hard to read for people with bad eyesight. The same goes for the black check boxes the program has. It would be a lot better if the headings would be white or another not dark color. I think this highly impacts the design and therefore score the program a 6 out of 10 on the design.
Software Watermark is however very easy to use and you don’t need to have any experience or read on how the program works. It explains all the steps clearly and ask nothing more than it needs to. The installer is clean of advertisements or bundled software and does not install anything you don’t need. The program works perfectly on one flaw, if you reach the last step you can’t go back anymore. Overall the Ease of Use is very good and scores a 8 out of 10.
Watermark Software is a great tool to apply watermarks quickly and with a lot of customization options to your images. The program is easy to use and next to that very fast with applying Watermarks. It scores a 7.6 out of 10 and that is not bad at all. A few improvements and the software would be close to perfect!
