Plum Amazing CEO Julian Miller said “If you share your amazing photo or video via Instagram, Email, Facebook, Twitter, etc. it’s very likely to go viral then fly off globally out of your control and without any connection to you as the creator.” He paused, then added, “The simple solution is to digitally sign your photos/videos using iWatermark+ using visible and/or invisible watermarks then your intellectual property has a visible connection to you wherever those iWatermarked photos/videos may roam.”
Julian Miller continued, “iWatermark+ combined with Instagram increases the power of both. iWatermark+ has always been popular with Instagram moderators but this latest version will be essential for Instagram influencers, users and businesses. iWatermark+ continues to be the only real professional watermark app for iOS. With even more features to come….”

Q: What is a watermark?
Centuries ago watermarks started as identification marks applied during the paper making process. During paper manufacturing wet paper was stamped with a seal/symbol. The marked area stayed thinner than the surrounding paper, hence the name watermark. That paper, when dry and held up to the light, showed the watermark. Later this process was used to verify the authenticity of official documents, money and generally to prevent forgery.
Q: How is watermarking used today?
Digital watermarking is the latest form of watermarking. Similar to the physical watermarks in paper, digital watermarks can be used once again to identify the owner/creator and authenticate digital media like images, audio and video.
Q: Why Watermark?
– When Photos/Videos go viral they fly off untraceably in all directions. Often, the owner/creator info is lost or forgotten. If there is no watermark then there is no way to know the creator of the photo.
– Avoid the surprise of seeing your photos, artwork or videos used by others, in physical products, in ads and/or on the web.
– Avoid intellectual property (IP) conflicts, costly litigation and headaches from plagiarists who claim they didn’t know that you created it by adding visible and/or invisible watermarks.
– Because the expanded use of social media has accelerated the speed with which a photo/video can go viral.
Q: What can be done?
✔ Adding an iWatermark subtly displays, no matter where your photo or video goes, that it is owned by you.
✔ Always, iWatermark with name, email or url so your creations have some visible legal connection to you.
✔ Promote and protect your company, name and website by iWatermarking all photos/videos you release.
✔ Digitally sign your work/photos/graphic/artwork with iWatermark, reclaim your intellectual property and maintain the recognition you deserve.
✔ Easily, secure and protect your photos with visible & invisible iWatermarks which display they were created and are owned by you.
