WinWatermark does the work for you!
When you take a photo with your Smartphone, your camera, or other device, simply connect the device to your PC or Mac and WinWatermark will detect the device and allow you to import your images straight into WinWatermark. Of course you can also Drag a photo or an entire folder of images and Drop onto WinWatermark as well. Your import will create a Library so that you can select one or all of your images for batch photo processing. Once you add watermarks, crop images, or resize photos, you can export your processed images to use on your website or share on Facebook.
Add dimension to everything you do! Most watermark applications still look like small utilities and do not offer Full Screen Mode operations. We think that when you add a watermark to an image, you should be able to view your watermarks and images using your entire screen. In WinWatermark, you can browse, edit, and share your photos in while enjoying a maximized workspace.
Eliminate the confusion and hassle of creating duplicates. No more trying to figure out what images are what…in some giant photo directory. Library: A Library is created for each import into WinWatermark. This stores your original images. Album: An Album is created for each Export. The export creates copies of your originals with any applied watermarks you have added. The Library allows you to view, select and edit images based on the import or project you are working on. Once you add watermarks, resize images, convert file format, or batch rename photos, simply press the process icon and a Album will be created. Your original photos are safe in the LIbrary and your processed images are ready to publish and share in your Album.
Organize and Manage your photos
We have a simple management system that will keep you organized when you are working with your photos.

Odds are you are working with many photos at once… even hundreds. Full screen mode offers you the advantage of a maximized workspace but you may want to take a closer look at one or more images in your batch. With the Image viewer, you can enlarge the image thumbnail and bring your image front and center. Go from picture to picture and take a closer look at your subjects. Use the Image viewer to eliminate underexposed or dull images from your library…or to simply enjoy clicking through the enlarged view or your photo Album…
We have one simple rule here at Simple Soft, LLC…Keep it simple!
After you Import your images, click the Edit icon. This puts WinWatermark into Edit Mode. To add a Text Watermark, click the “T” TEXT watermark icon. As you will see, the TEXT watermark dialog offers you many options. Simply type your desired text into the text entry window. You may select one of many fonts, or add your own font. You can set the location of the text watermark by choosing any one of the placement icons or, you an adjust the text watermark position using the X/Y axis controls. Select Manual, Tile, and Stretch modes as well. You can also use the Opacity slider to make your watermark transparent. Once you add a text watermark to your image, you may apply the watermark to the selected image, or to ALL images. Click on the “More Effects” button to enable shadows, backgrounds, and other TEXT effects such as Emboss, Outline, Engrave, and Translucency.
Besides adding TEXT watermarks to your images, you can also watermark photos with your LOGO, or apply a fun stamp or caption. Simply click the “Image” watermark icon to view the Image Watermark Dialog. Select from a variety of image watermark categories like Symbols, Stamps, Clip Art, and more. To add your own logo to the selection, simply click the “Add” icon to import your own logo into WinWatermark. Once you have imported your logo, simply select it as your desired image watermark. You can place you image watermark using the placement icons, fade the logo out using the Opacity slider, and more.
Lets eliminate the confusion and hassle of creating copyright symbols using your keyboard. With WinWatermark, you can simply check the desired symbol you seek and click apply. It;s that easy. Click “EXIF Template/Symbols” button on the text watermark dialog. Here you can easily check the symbol you seek. Once you have made you selection, click OK and the selected symbol will be added to your TEXT watermark. Want the Symbol bigger? WinWatermark treats the symbol the same as text so you can use the Font Size selector to enlarge the symbol as well as all other font size, color, placement, alignment ,and opacity controls.
Almost all digital cameras save JPEG files with EXIF (Exchangeable Image File) data. Camera settings and scene information are recorded by the camera into the image file. Examples of stored information are shutter speed, date and time a photo was taken, focal length, exposure compensation, metering pattern and if a flash was used.
One of the quickest ways to watermark your photos is by using the EXIF template.
Click “EXIF Template/Symbols” button on the text watermark dialog. Here you can see the many options available to you from the image EXIF data. You may select date and time as your watermark, or choose from the other available options. Once you have made you selection, click OK and the selected EXIF data will be added to your TEXT watermark. Just as any text watermark, WinWatermark treats the EXIF data the same as any text so you can use the Font Size selector to enlarge the data as well as all other font size, color, placement, alignment, and opacity controls.
Thanks to WinWatermark, your edits are only applied to copies of the originals.
In other words… if you goof up, just try again!
Ever snap a great photo just to learn that your finder was over the edge of the lens? Our crop tool lets you trim, or eliminate, the edges of an image, focus on the main subject, remove background distractions, or “Zoom in” on the image focal point.
Of course not every photo you take needs cropping. However, the visual impact of many photos can be greatly improved when thoughtfully cropped. Learn how to Crop images in WinWatermark!
Fully automatic cameras are sometimes not so fully automatic…. If you import an image and the orientation is wrong, just rotate the image using our orientation icons. Rotate Left or Right to move from Portrait to Landscape. You can even flip and toggle the image to its inverse.
One of the joys of photography is being able to share your images with family and friends.
