New online tools: Crop Photo and Compress JPEG

Hello, everyone!

We have some amazing news for you! Today we’d like to tell you about two new online tools that are available on our website.

First of all, now you can crop photos without watermarking them with our new Crop Photo web-based app. It is straightforward, simple and fast with no pop ups or ads disturbing you. With our app you can crop each photo in one batch differently. You can choose one of three popular aspect ratios – 1:1, 4:3,16:9 – or adjust the cropping area to your liking without any locked proportions. Aspect ratio is the ratio of the width of an image to its height.

Synchronization of Templates and Diagonal Tile

Synchronization of Templates and Diagonal Tile

Hello! There are three new features in Visual Watermark: synchronization of templates, 600 new fonts, and diagonal tile.

The first feature allows you to synchronize your watermark templates between computers. If you create a template on one of your computers, it is going to automatically appear on the other activated ones. All the watermarks on the list of 10 previously used templates will be uploaded onto a cloud, giving you access to them even if you switch computers. If you want your template to be synchronized, you need to apply it to at least one image first. How do you know if your template was successfully synchronized? It’s simple. You should see a cloud icon at the bottom of your synchronized templates.

Multi-line Text

Hello! Visual Watermark has got another great update - multi-line text!

The updated version offers the capability to add multi-line textual watermarks to your images. You can align your text left, right or make it center and set the amount of space between words.

What is a Watermark

What is a Watermark

Although the name may be confusing, especially in digital world, a watermark is a mark or lettering superimposed onto the photo showing who its owner is: a photographer, a company or a website. It is a technique known already for ages and is still used for example in marking banknotes. More commonly people associate watermarking with signing the works of art by famous painters, though artist like da Vinci or Picasso did not watermark their pieces, they simply signed it, but the idea of signing someone’s work is applicable. Michelangelo, Monet, Rembrandt and many other famous painters made this kind of a watermark for years and now it looks artistic. They didn’t call it “a watermark”, but it helped them to solve the problem what is a watermark for. You can make a watermark easily on your computer.

Improved Background Removal Feature

Hello! We are happy to announce that Visual Watermark has a few new updates and we would like to tell you about them.

First of all, the feature of background removal from black and white uploaded logos had been massively improved. For instance, let’s say, you have a digital version of your signature. The signature itself is black and the background is white. You want to add this signature to your photos as a watermark, so you uploaded it into Visual Watermark. The white background is still visible, though, and in order to remove it you have to click on “Remove Background”. Voilà! The background is gone now - simple as that. Along with having improved this feature, we also added the ability to choose the color for your uploaded signature or any other uploaded logo, which makes it easier to create a watermark that is coherent with the color palette of your photo.
