CNET Editors' review
Arclab Watermark Studio provides users with a quick way to apply watermarks to their images. While the program succeeds in its simplicity, it falls short with its customization.
The program's interface is a joy to work with. Featuring a small collection of command icons and a three-step process to create a watermark, users will be putting their stamp on photos quickly. In addition, there is a Help file for anyone having difficulty with the program. Applying a watermark is a simple matter of selecting a photo from a file tree to begin with. Next, users select one of the dozens of watermarks supplied in the program's pull-down menu and see how it will look in the preview screen. Finally, users select its destination and file type before the watermark is quickly applied. The program is low on special features, preferring to focus on keeping things simple and understandable for all. We would have liked to see an option to create our own text watermark by simply typing in a message, but we don't feel this takes away from the spectacular overall product.
The program leaves its own watermark on output until you purchase it. But thanks to its simple flow and easy watermark creation, this program is a great download for users needing to quickly keep their photos from being used.

"I was impressed."
Version: Arclab Watermark Studio 2.2
I downloaded the sample and looking at the program it looked like you could use your own watermark. This is contrary to what I read in the description. As it turned out I went into Photoshop, created a image with a transparent background, and entered my text in the Type Font; color, size, weight and locations I wanted, then saved as a PSD file. The program loaded it right up and it worked great. I am anxious to try the batch feature,
None so far
I would recommend this to anyone. It is simple and customizable as well. This program is good for any kind of user.
Version: Arclab Watermark Studio 2.2
I've tried a lot of different watermarking software now and I have to admit that Arclab WS 2 is a powerful solution, but...
...it's not for free. Today I've discovered a freeware named WaterMark V2 at download.cnet.com - it does the same, probably it can even do more for you and is for free.
Don't waste money on watermarking software. I would be fine with $ 5, but I would rather recommend using freeware or Photoshop macros.
