And so I've always done it - but to be honest, it's not been my favourite task because it's always taken so long to individually edit each photo and copy and paste a watermark to each one.
Now you do know I like to share any exciting, time-saving finds with my fellow creatives, so today, I thought I'd share my recent discovery of the rather wonderful Visual Watermark program which in a nutshell is a batch watermarking software. I cannot tell you how much I love it!
It was low cost - US$19.99 (one off), packed with features, and super easy to use. I'll leave you to go check out the nitty gritty of just what it can do ... http://www.visualwatermark.com/.
But here's a quick visual of how it works for me...
|I add all the photos I want to watermark|
|My Watermark is saved so I don't even have to do the next few steps, I skip right to the end of saving my watermark to all the photos, but if I wanted to do a new one. I would start here by adding my water mark logo/and or text|
|This is my logo which I want to reduce down, change the opacity etc. Easily done with all the options on the right|
|So you can see the edited logo bottom left, now I want to add some text, change it's colour, font, size etc|
|Starting to take shape. If I want I can also add a photo border as part of my watermark process|
|Here's where the placement of the watermark will be on all of the photos I choose to put it on. At this point I would save the watermark so I can use it in the future and not have to do the setup process.|
|The last step is to batch add the watermark to all the photos I have chosen. As you can see there are options for overwriting etc - super flexible!|
