If you are going to share your photographic work online, then you have to be aware of the theft of your pictures. There are people who use others pictures without asking first and label the work as their own. To discourage such copyright infringement, you should watermark your pictures when sharing online. This can be done either using the standard picture editors which takes a long time, or you can use the free TSR Watermark Image program to batch watermark all your pictures in three easy steps.
The TSR Watermark Image program is free for personal use and can be downloaded from their website (the download link for the free version is near the bottom of the webpage). The download is available both as an installer and as a portable application.
When you run TSR Watermark Image for the first time, it starts with a wizard which lets you watermark one of your pictures in three steps – select the picture, type in the watermark text and process the picture. But you can close the wizard and switch to the enhanced interface. In the enhanced interface you can watermark multiple pictures simultaneously.
In the first step, you can select as many images as you want. You can add multiple image files or a whole directory of images. You can also see a preview of the pictures that you have selected in the window. After this click on the Next button to go to the next step.
In the second step, you have to configure the watermark. You can choose a text based or picture based watermark. Using a text based watermark is very easy. You can adjust the transparency level, specify the watermark location, whether to tile it horizontally or vertically, choose font name, font color and more. You can also preview the watermark on one of the selected images to see how would it look. When you are satisfied, click on the Next button to proceed to the final step.
In the third and final step, you have to choose an output directory where all the watermarked images shall be copied. You may find it a redundant step, but it is required to prevent preserving of your original images. By saving the watermarked images to a different folder, it is preventing any accidental overwriting of the original files. There are other options as well like choosing a format (JPEG, PNG etc.) and whether you want to resize the images. After selecting the directory, click on the Start button to start the watermarking process which takes only a few seconds to finish.
The TSR Watermark Image is a very easy to use batch watermarking program. It takes only three steps to process all your images and provides with a plethora of options to choose from. It can watermark using text as well as image based watermarks.
