Watermark Your Photos today

Digital photography is not simply about taking pictures, the editing of these pictures is one thing that make it so flexible and exciting, allowing stunning post production effects and touch ups. Choosing the right software to assist you in this process can be daunting, especially for amateur photographers.

The most popular photo editing software on the market is undoubtedly Adobe Photoshop. Most professional photographers use this software, which is known as Adobe Photoshop CS5, although it is quite complicated and takes a lot of learning, plus it is rather expensive. However, many of it’s basic edition options are easy to understand, therefore a beginner user may obtain exceptional results. Adobe Photoshop CS5 is not recommended for amateur photographers, it is best to start with the simpler, and much less expensive versions.

How to Improve Your Watermark Protection

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.

How to improve watermark security - watermark removed

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 for Mac is Here

Hello, I’m happy to announce the first update for Visual Watermark for Mac. It features 5 new features.

Auto-scaled watermarks

This feature allows watermarking landscape, portrait and cropped photos at once. If the watermark is too big to fit into a photo, Visual Watermark will scale it down to look similar on all photos. It allows you to make a universal watermark.

Your Photo Business Money Isn't Your Money

Your Photo Business Money Isn't Your Money

Today, I wanted to speak about personal finances of a self-employed person – photographers, artists and freelancers in general. I started Visual Watermark as a part-time project while working with my ex-employer DevExpress Inc. It was fun and easy side-project since it yields small but steady revenue and didn’t require too much effort to support it. This year I left my day job to fully concentrate on my side-project.

This move gave me an opportunity to do what engages me a lot and still much more flexibility to spend time with my small baby. On another hand, it cut our revenues in half. I don’t have “extra” money anymore, money to buy a trip to the ocean without putting aside for a few months or money that I can put into business development if necessary. I still had enough to pay my expenses but no penny above that.

What is Google+ ?

I guess that all of you have already heard about a new overwhelming project from Google – a social networking service code-named Google+.

It was born only 1 month ago, but has already got more than 10 million members and one of its basic approaches to social networking (so-called ‘Life Circles’) is agreed by many experts to be the thing that users will like very much – so much that Google+ will be able to make a revolution and replace Facebook on its throne.
