Top 3 Tools For Watermarking Photos

Do you have a bunch of beautiful photos that you worked so hard on and now you want to post online, but you’re afraid that they will be stolen? You should consider watermarking them first: it is not only a great way to protect your images, but also to promote your name or your brand. We have three amazing tools, which are perfect for this specific task: Visual Watermark, Adobe Photoshop and Watermarkly.

Visual Watermark is a watermark maker for both Windows and Mac. It has an easy-to-use interface and multi-element templates as well as a text template and a logo template, if you want to keep your watermark simple. Visual Watermark never changes the original image and allows you to choose the resolution of your picture. Moreover, you can save the template of your watermark and apply it to other pictures in the future. Visual Watermark works offline, which can be a downside, if you prefer to work online. Plus it has one and only purpose of watermarking images as opposed to Photoshop, for instance.

Everyone heard of Adobe Photoshop once or twice. It is an incredible,
multi-functional graphic editor, which offers a wide range of tools and features. It can turn your photo from “okay” to “amazing” and help you with watermarking your pictures. You can edit your photo however you like and then create a watermark to protect your image - all in one program. There is also an option of batch-watermark your pictures, but you will need create an action first. Unfortunately, Photoshop won’t scale down your watermark, so processing several photos of different sizes at once can be complicated. The process of creating a watermark in Photoshop is not that difficult, but there won’t be any hints or instructions - you’ll have to figure it out on your own.

Watermarkly is an online start-up. The web app is private and safe, so you don’t have to worry about your photos being stored on someone else’s server. Watermarkly can watermark several pictures at once, while the desk-top version can tackle a larger number of images. The app allows you to upload images straight from your computer, Google Drive or Dropbox; this can come in handy, if you travel a lot or store most of your files on these storage clouds. The obvious drawback of the online version is that you will need the Internet access. Plus if you want to add a logo, you will need to have it as a separate file and upload it from either your computer or storage clouds.

Hope this post will help you immensely. Let me know!
