Placing watermarks on your images adds a professional touch as well as copyright protection. DropWaterMark aims to make it easy to add text or image watermarks to your pictures one at a time or in batches. It's not the most attractive program we've tested, but it performed its job well.
The program's main interface could use some work. Not only is it unattractive, but it also lacks any kind of intuitive flow. After a few minutes, we were able to find our way around the program's features well enough, though a Help feature is available. Menu items run along the top of the interface; there's also a configuration button and a large button for selecting or dropping your images to be watermarked. Once we'd selected our images, we were able to resize them using controls on the Preferences menu, which also let us adjust the image quality (the default resolution is 72 dpi) and rename the final images. The Configuration menu features multiple tab and menu options for customizing your watermark (it also places its own watermark on images during the trial). We were able to successfully enter our watermark text, rotate it, adjust the brightness, and scale it. The program also allows you to add image watermarks. We even added our own border and frames to our images for a finishing touch.
DropWaterMark downloads as a ZIP file and comes with a 20-day trial period. It left a folder behind after we uninstalled it. We recommend it for all users.
