You probably have pictures online whether they are on your Facebook profile, Facebook page, Etsy Shop, Pinterest, etc. It is always a good idea to protect your pictures whether they are of your family or of your items. The easiest and best way to do that is with a watermark. It is a picture or word that goes over your picture so that if anyone tries to take or copy your picture it will always state who it belongs to. More and likely, people will not take or use your pictures if they have a watermark and if they do then anyone viewing it will know who the actual owner is.
PearlMountain Photo Watermark Software can help you add watermarks to all your pictures. It is a very simple program to use so anyone can use it. It can add watermarks to batches of pictures or one at a time. You can create your own watermark by adding your own text or uploading a photo. It also comes with a set of watermark pictures that you can use.
After you download, install and open the software this is what the start page looks like:
Don’t let all the buttons and stuff confuse you…trust me, it is very easy. Click in the dark grey area to add your pictures. You can add as many or as little as you want. See on the left side there are tabs that say: Image Watermark, Text Watermark and Templates? You can use the template to automatically enter any of their pre-set watermarks. The Text Watermark tab allows you to enter the wording you want, position it and change the font and color if you choose to do so. You can even save the Profile of that watermark to add it to future pictures as well. Here is a picture that I created using the Text Watermark tab:
And another one using the Image Watermark tab and one of their preset images:
Once you get it all set up the way you want press the big blue circle that says START. It will save the new pictures to the same place that the original pictures are but it will ask you if you want to replace the old pictures or rename them. I especially like that feature because then I don’t need to search for my new photos, move them and I still have my originals.
Overall, I think this is a great program and I will be using it (starting now) for all my photos that I post online, especially on my Etsy Shop! You can purchase this software for $19.90 at batchimageconverter.com.
