I’m pleased to announce first 64-bit version of Visual Watermark for Windows. 32-bit programs on Windows can allocate just about 1.3Gb of memory. By going to 64-bit architecure we removed this limitation. Visual Watermark can as much memory as available in your computer. This means you can watermark bigger images faster: we will load them all into memory and will do more jobs in parallel.
It’s time for the first release after summer holidays. We revised our processing engine by optimizing operation flow, memory utilization and algorithms that we use. What we got is 2-3 times faster performance of Plus and Premium editions. If you have Basic edition, you will get a performance boost too but a smaller one. In our test with twenty four 36Mpix images taken with Nikon D800, Visual Watermark 4.30 Basic watermarked photos 13% faster than older version 4.27. Plus edition was about twice faster than older version.
Great news for those who wanted multiple watermark items on their photos. After several approaches I think we found best solution for this use case.
We released Visual Watermark 4.23. We re-worked Output Setting screen in this section to make it simpler to use and moved Preview button here. Now it shows how Auto-Scale feature changes resulting images.
Say, you’re a realtor and just starting to watermark your images. There is a big chance, you have hundreds of properties that have individual folders with numerous photos that you want to watermark. Watermarking each folder individually is obviously going to be time consuming, therefore we added a new feature to keep each folder separate.
