Editors' review

TSR Watermark Image Software from andromedaIT is a free program that can add watermarks to your images and documents. You can use it to mark the images you post online to keep them from being reused without your permission. You can make your watermarks barely visible or unmistakable, depending on your needs: a light mark for credit on images you mean to share, and heavy marking to protect images from being reused, such as when photographers post example images on their Web sites.

TSR Watermark's interface resembles a properties dialog but is really a typical three-panel Windows app in disguise, with a left-hand navigation panel for selecting source, destination, and editing watermark images and a main view bar split horizontally by a narrow progress bar. The upper panel is a watermark selection tool for adding images and text; the tabbed lower panel displays the finished document and a log file. We selected an image to watermark and a destination folder. Other choices included output format, quality, size, and orientation, as well as EXIF data options. We selected 50 percent watermark transparency and a lower-left placement. We moved to the watermark panel and chose Use Text, entered our watermark text, chose some options like font, chisel, emboss, color, and border; opted to add the text to the EXIF Copyright data; selected Preview when running; and clicked Start. The program quickly added the watermark text to our image, displayed it in the preview panel, and recorded the operation in the Log tab. Next we tried an image watermark. We browsed to a picture to use as a watermark and selected size, angle, transparency, and placement. Once again, the program quickly added the watermark and saved the file to our destination folder. We viewed our test files in Photoshop, and the watermarks created by TSR Watermark looked clean and professionally done. Satisfied, we added some copyright watermarks to a large batch of snapshots, successfully stopping and restarting the program during the process.

Watermarking can protect your digital and intellectual property. TSR Watermark Image Software makes it easy to add custom watermarks to a wide range of file types, one by one or in batches.

    "It comes with virus"

    May 08, 2013   |   By Lightyear77

    Version: TSR Watermark Image Software Pro 2.4.0.1

    Pros

    Free and does not cost money.

    Cons

    I am not sure if it's the software itself or it's the CNET's download program, anyway after I downloaded the software to my laptop, I got so many junk tool bars on my Firefox browser window. I spent 2 hours to clean it up. This is a dangerous malware.

    Summary

    This is a dangerous malware.

    "Instructions lacking - TSR watermark showing behind"

    January 29, 2013   |   By OdysseySeaGlass

    Version: TSR Watermark Image Software Pro 2.3.2.5

    Pros

    I didn't get far enough to find the pros

    Cons

    The TSR watermark is showing behind my watermark and no instructions on how to get rid of it.
    No explanation of what the "Profile" is and no way to choose profile easily
    I wasted 1/2 hour on this and although I built and run two popular websites with all the coding, etc, I couldn't figure this program out

    Summary

    Unless something is done to add more detailed instructions, forget it

    "Beware of malware!!!"

    November 21, 2012   |   By CAW2

    Version: TSR Watermark Image Software Pro 2.3.1.2

    Pros

    None - the Cnet download installed an empty zip-file and at the same time infected my computer with the virtually unremovable Claro-Search malware, despite having made sure to decline any additional software.

    Cons

    Having to spend hours trying to find any way to remove the evil Claro-Search malware, without any real success.

    Summary

    Hoping to warn others - this malware has made Firefox basically unusable for me, slowed down my computer, and can only imagine the havoc it's wreaking on my system. Last time ever I trust a download here...

    "Makes an easy job of preparing images for uploading."

    April 21, 2012   |   By Lia2

    Version: TSR Watermark Image Software 2.1.3.2

    Pros

    Allows for the positioning of text/image at eight points along the perimeter or centrally with vertical and horizontal offsets. Rotation is accomplished by specifying an angle. Color is customizeable as is transparency. Supports multiple output directories. Converts .png to .jpeg easily.

    Cons

    Custom colors are not added and retained in the custom palette.
    Does not access the full system font library which includes italic/bold faces and symbols. Have not determined what library it uses so I can augment the selection. Does not remember file path for non-batch image marking after closing program making it necessary to carry it minimized on the task bar.

    Summary

    The best freeware I've found to date for adding title,copyright,& signature to images of my artwork which are sized beforehand.

    I'm pleased with it and don't hesitate to recommend it!

    "Best of the ones I looked at, and that was many."

    August 01, 2011

    Version: TSR Watermark Image Software 1.9.9.6

    Pros

    Batch watermarking, Saved settings for the 3D image. Easy to use.

    Cons

    I wish you could rotate the 3D image marks!

    Summary

    Helping a friend set up her page, which is picture heavy. I tried several different programs for watermarking, and this is definitely the best of the bunch.

    Updated on Aug 1, 2011

    I would have given it a full 5 stars, but for the rotating issue.

    "Basic features missing, File size problems"

    January 15, 2011   |   By vadakkus

    Version: TSR Watermark Image Software 1.9.6.2

    Pros

    Speed, Batch watermarking, Ease of use, Adding text to EXIF info, Date/Time stamp, Text size can be a percentage of the image width rather than a fixed font size

    Cons

    File size almost doubles after watermarking, Basic font options missing (Bold,Italic etc), Useless for low resolution images as the text tends to get 'spread around'.

    Summary

    Have been on the search for the 'perfect watermarking' software, and still haven't found it.

    I thought I had found it when I first used this (TSR), because the application has some impressive features like you can add your watermark text as the EXIF information of the image as 'copyright', you can choose where to put the text, directory-structure batch processing, watermark size can be a percentage of the image width rather than a fixed font size (Very useful as I take pictures in all sorts of sizes), and it is very fast.

    But later I found that processed images are just too huge: Almost double the original file size! and the watermarked text seems to be 'pixelated' around the edges for smaller image sizes. Also, there is no option for the text to be made bold/italic/underlined/strikethrough etc. These basics are missing, while shadow/emboss etc are available!

    So my quest for the basic watermarking solution continues. You can use this if you want to watermark a limited number of large resolution images and have oodles of storage space .Would have been awesome if they could take care of the file size problem.. :(

    "Excellent Free Watermarking plus other Functions"

    November 30, 2010   |   By Old Dog New Tricks

    Version: TSR Watermark Image Software 1.9.5.1

    Pros

    Can add Text or Image Watermarks
    No limit on batch qty of watermarks unlike most other freebies
    Some nice effects incl embossing, borders, rotate and resizing
    Variable transparancy of watermarks from 0 to 100%
    Very fast acting.

    Cons

    No real dislikes, but a pity it's not highlighted that clicking on the embedded URL link to the host website will take you to an excellent Help fuction.

    Summary

    Found this program some while ago on www.watermark-image.com/ and after a hesitant start, was amazed at how good it is. I had been looking for a free watermarking program which let me add more than 1 watermark without having to update to a paid professional program. TSR provides that plus a lot more. You can add Text or Image watermarks and if you apply some imagination together with the range of effect such as embossing, borders, colour, style, and rotate, there is really no limit to what you can create.
    I love the ability to select the Transparency level you want. I start at 60% which generally works for me but sometimes amend dependant upon the placement of the watermark which can downgrade the effect I am trying to achieve.
    I did have some difficulties when resizing and adding watermarks at the same time using this software, and now prefer to resize my photos using FastStone Photo Resizer before watermarking, but this may just be me.
    Whilst I found the GUI a bit cluttered at first, I now find it just what I need with everything well organised and accessible - all in all, I wouldn't exchange this software for a different one.
