All of us know that the best way to protect your digital photos on the Internet is by watermarking them, but sometimes to place the watermark on the photos is not enough to secure your photos. For example, look at these pictures.
We removed the watermark using photo editing software. Remaining defects on the restored picture are so invisible that the photo can be easily stolen.
Watermark is a mark or lettering over the photo showing its owner: a photographer or a website. Here are a couple of watermark samples:
Aperture is photo management software for Mac that allows you to store and refine high volumes of photos. All images are stored in a special folder called library. This means when importing photos from a camera memory card Aperture copies them into an internal storage (“library”). You can easily erase your memory card while Aperture will store original photos for you on your hard disc.
However, this makes photo watermarking a bit inconvenient since Visual Watermark cannot retrieve images from the library, only Aperture can. You should export your photos from the library first. This tutorial shows how this can be done.
Visual Watermark is a image watermarking tool for Mac and Windows. Since Mac-version is a much newer program, it lacks some features existing in the Window-version. One of them is the capability to add your own logotype stored as an image file.
