Visible vs Invisible Watermarks

Some watermarks are visible and others invisible. Both serve different purposes.
A visible watermark is where you superimpose your logo or signature onto your image.
An invisible watermark is hidden throughout the picture, within the code that generates it, is a recognizable pattern that identifies it as being your artwork.

What are the New Features?

- stegomark now maintains original size and DPI with the hidden embedded text.
- registration dialog comes to the front and cannot be hidden by other windows.
- version number added to bottom left corner of main window

Do you need to use watermark software?

Sure the answer is yes, for the following reasons:

If you share an amazing photo you’ve taken via Email, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. it’s very likely to go viral then they fly off globally out of your control and without any connection to you as the creator. But digitally sign your work/photos/graphic/artwork using iWatermark with your name, email or url and your photos have a visible and legal connection to you wherever they go.
Build your company brand, by having your company logo on all your images.
Avoid the surprise of seeing your artwork elsewhere on the web or in an ad.
Avoid the conflicts and headaches with plagiarists who claim they didn’t know that you created it.
Avoid the costly litigation that can be involved after that.
Avoid intellectual property squabbles.

Why iWatermark Pro is the best choice for you?

Many types of watermarks
Can apply more than 1 watermark at the same time
More professional
Less expensive, faster and easier
Compatible with all platforms with ability to share watermarks between these apps
Use photos of different resolutions and orientations in a batch and still keep the watermark on each photo looking the same because of the Scaling tool.

Conclusion:

iWatermark works as a standalone digital watermarking app with other photo browsers like Lightroom, Picasa and ACDSee. If you put your photos on the web then anyone can take and use them for whatever they like. Don’t get ripped off, even a very small digital watermark will help protect your intellectual property.  Watermark 1 or thousands of images at a time. Used by beginners, pros, and large organizations. Designed to save photographers time.
