Verdict: Water Marquee is a great online application for creating and editing watermarks. It is equipped with unique fonts and templates for beginners.
Although 40% of the functionality is locked for free access, a premium subscription opens up a batch editing mode to fashion designers, clothing designers and photographers. It allows them to add watermark to photo with one click.
Edit the color, size, location or font so that it matches the style of your complete image. You may not worry about copyrights and use your photos with the added water mark logo for commercial purposes.
Water Marquee performs all the steps quickly and easily, making the process of protecting your photos less difficult than what Photoshop offers.
Water Marquee is an automated and free watermark software for creating and adding logos to your private or commercial photos.
Although the free version works with JPEG, PNG and a limited number of RAW files, Water Marquee Pro gives you access to 100+ formats, including raster: TIFF, JPEG, CALS, BMP, PNG, PCX, and vector: AI, CDR, CGM, DXF, and many others.
The free version limits you to a maximum photo resolution of 1600x1200. A premium subscription removes any restrictions and supports even the largest images, including 2398x3602 and higher.
The text editor is well-designed and offers more than 50 fonts, among which are the common Arial, Forum, Lato, Verdana, Georgia, as well as more creative ones like Pacibico, Comic Sans MS, Josefin Slab and others.
You can adjust the font color and background with the help of the smart palette, transparency and size – by using the basic sliders.
Once you’ve added the desired photo, you can upload the ready-made PNG/PSD logos templates. This will help you avoid complicated work with layers in Photoshop.
All that is left to do is to adjust the size and transparency with the help of smoothly working sliders.
However, I do not like the fact that I have to upload fully finished logos with a cleaned background as this watermark software does not offer selective tools.
To simplify the creation of the watermark, the developers took care of launching 19 unique ready-made templates with different fonts, sizes and rounding types, for different styles of photos, fashion selfies, product demonstration, or stories.
All you need to do is select the desired template and edit the text, replacing it with your own. Besides, you can change the color, size and transparency of the selected watermark.
Mind that there are only 7/19 templates in the free Water Marquee version.
As a fashion/clothing designer or a novice photographer, you will probably find it useful to have a batch processing feature.
If you subscribe to Water Marquee Pro, create and make particular adjustments to a watermark, you will be able to overlay it to 100+ photos in one click, which significantly saves your time.
If you are a beginner to photography or just looking for inspiration, there is a small WaterMarquee blog where the developers show how their simple watermark maker works.
Besides, they explain basic concepts: types of digital watermarks, use of both visible and invisible watermarks, copyright protection options for photographers, and more.
Although Water Marquee offers a completely free watermark software option, you can open up additional features by paying a one-time fee for the premium version. The license will be valid without time limits.
Water Marquee Pro gives you access to locked watermark templates, 50+ premium fonts found in Photoshop, the ability to perform batch processing, as well as open any image format in the highest resolution.
