These are instructions on how to watermark photos with the help of our online app, Visual Watermark. You can use it on Linux, Chromebook, tablet or phone. It is incredibly easy and the entire process takes only a few minutes.
Step 1 – Select Photos
Visual Watermark offers the ability to upload images from your computer, Google Drive and Dropbox.
Upload Photos From Your Computer
To upload photos from your computer, click on “Select Images” or “Add Images” and choose “From My Computer”, then select photos or folder in the dialog. Also, you can drag and drop your images or even folders into Visual Watermark app. Press Ctrl+A on Windows or Cmd+A on Mac to select all images contained in a folder.
Import Photos From Google Drive
Click on “Select Images” or “Add Images” and select “From Google Drive” option. Log in to your Google Drive account in a pop-up dialog and allow Visual Watermark to get access to your photos. The Google Drive Picker will appear where you can choose images for watermarking. If you want to select several photos, hold Shift on your keyboard and click on them.
Import Photos From Dropbox
Click on “Select Images” or “Add Images” and select “From Dropbox”. Log in to your Dropbox account in a pop-up dialog and allow Visual Watermark to get access to your photos. The Dropbox Picker will appear where you can choose images for watermarking. If you want to select several photos, hold Shift on your keyboard and click on them.
Click on ‘Clear’ to remove all selected photos.
Step 2 – Design Your Watermark
Once your images are uploaded into the app, it is time to create and edit your watermark: adjust its size and opacity, change position and color, choose a font and add an effect. To create a watermark, click on “Add Logo” or “Add Text”. To get rid of all existing watermarks on your image, click on “Remove watermark”.
Visual Watermark automatically shows you the last template that you applied to save you some time. There is also a list of 10 previously used templates that appears after you remove all the watermarks from your image. To create your unique and perfect watermark add as many templates per image as you need.
You can upload your logo files from your computer, Dropbox or Google Drive.
After your logo appeared on the image, you can customize it to your liking and remove a black or white background from it if necessary.
If you added a textual watermark, enter your text in the text bar and experiment with the settings until you achieve a desired look. To select a watermark element, simply click on your logo or text. The editing toolbox will appear next to it.
Step 3 – Specify the Output Settings and Start Watermarking
Visual Watermark offers:
Auto-Scale Watermarks. The app automatically adapts your watermark to fit it better into every photo in your batch. This means that if you have images with different orientations – portrait and landscape – our app would change its position. In case your images differ in size, Visual Watermark would make your watermark smaller on smaller images and bigger on large images. This process is automated.
Resize Photos. Posting pictures in high resolution is not safe. To protect your images, it is best to post resized and watermarked copies. Visual Watermark has the following resizing options:
- Do not resize images,
- Fit image width (enter the number of pixels),
- Fit image height (enter the number of pixels),
- Fit width and height (enter the number of pixels) and Percentage.
If you want to make sure that your watermark looks good on every photo in the batch, click on “Preview”. In the preview section you can change the position of your watermark and adjust its size. Click through the photos and make necessary changes – watermarks on other images won’t be affected.
When you are happy with the results, click on the cross in the top right corner to close the Preview section.
After specifying the output settings and previewing your images, click on “Watermark Images” to start the watermarking process.
Your original photos won’t be changed. Once the app is done with the watermarking process, download watermarked copies. The originals will remain unaltered on your computer, Google Drive or Dropbox accounts.
