Marketing and Branding

If you watermark your images and someone steals them to use in their blog or whatever, then you are getting free marketing. If someone likes what they see in the image, they can more easily track you down and purchase products.

Watermark Options

Watermark gives you the option of adding a text watermark to your image, a graphic overlay watermark, or both.

By using a graphic overlay for your logo and siganture and a text watermark for the copyright and site designation, you have everything covered.

You don't turn Watermark on until you want to. That means you can test your watermarks as much as you want.

The testing experience is simple and watermark previews are non-destructive: no images get harmed in the process.

Image Backups and Restore

Watermark automatically backs up your images so it's easy to restore an image that has been watermarked.

Protect Images

In addition to restoring original images, you have options to protect images from being watermarked. This is useful if you see a product image that doesn't need to be watermarked or isn't suitable for a watermark.

Other Utilities

Watermark images by inputting a list of images or a directory where images are stored. Perfect for those who want more control.

Product Utilities

You can watermark a product's images from the product edit screen. Watermark, protect, and restore and all right there, and you can visually see the original and watermarked images to make sure they look good.
