Watermarking helps secure your images and documents from unauthorized use and theft. TSR Watermarking Image Software Portable is a totally portable version of TSR's basic watermarking package. It's free for individuals, but commercial users must buy a license when their 30-day trial expires. Since it's totally portable, it can run from a USB drive, compact flash drive, and similar media. That makes it a great choice for on-the-go photographers since it can watermark images from any compatible PC.
TSR Watermarking's user interface is businesslike, with few frills, if any. Three tabs handle the program's functions: Files to Watermark, Watermark(s) Configuration, and Save Watermarked Pictures as. We started by browsing to an image file to watermark, though we could select entire directories of files, too. TSR handles most common image types. We added a Watermarks Profile on the configuration tab. We could create text or image watermarks, including borders, colors, fonts, transparency, and effects, as well as size and placement. On the next tab, we selected our Watermark Profile from a list box and set our other choices, including a Destination for our watermarked files, which should be different from the source file, especially if the watermark isn't readily visible. Ours was, though, as we saw when we ran the tool and our saved, watermarked image's thumbnail appeared in the destination folder. A fourth tab accesses a log file. We could select an interface language from an extensive list of choices on the menu bar, or access a good, Web-based Help file that does a fine job of walking new users through this simple but capable program's steps.
TSR Watermarking proved an easy-to-use, capable tool for creating simple but effective watermarks and applying them to images. It can even add your text watermark information to an image's EXIF data. Whether it's a tiny, transparent copyright mark for the lower corner or a banner watermark describing copyright limitations, this effective freeware can handle it.
From andromeda IT:
TSR Watermark Image Software Pro Portable Software is a watermark image program, is software that can add digital Watermarks to all your images, photos and pictures in the background with the transparency you decide. The program can also resize the images before the digital watermark is added. When creating the watermark, you can use either text or another picture as the source of the watermark. If you want to add the watermark to the background, you can set the logo or the text to be more or less transparent, and define the transparency color on the image or select the first pixel in the upper left corner as transparency color. Feature includes multiple watermarks, multiple outputs, unlimited use, and free email support.
What's new in this version: Version 188.8.131.52 changed the behavior so an invalid image will not trigger an message box while running with a command line option to automate the run.

"ok but could be HEAPS better"
Version: TSR Watermark Image Software Pro Portable 184.108.40.206
This is a good programme for adding watermarks to your photos!
Hoever, you can NOT simply add text! I am an ametur photographer, and downloaded this programme so that I could add a copyright notice to my pictures!
In future software updates, could we please have the ability to add a text watermarks! If that feature was included then, yes, this would be a great programme!
