OVERVIEW

San Francisco, CA – iWatermark, is the No. 1 and only watermarking tool available for all 4 platforms, iPhone/iPad, Mac, Android and Windows. iWatermark is the most popular multi-platform professional watermarking tool for photos.

Easily, secure and protect your photos with Text, Graphic, Vector, Lines, Border, Text On Arc, Text Banner, QR Code, Signature Metadata and Steganographic watermarks. Once added to a photo this watermark shows it was created and is owned by you.

Plum Amazing CEO said “If you share an amazing photo you’ve taken via Email, Facebook, Instagram, 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/artwork using iWatermark with your name, email or url then your photos have a visible and legal connection to you wherever they may roam.”

The watermark types in iWatermark are not found in any other software. Some watermarks are visible and others invisible. Both serve different purposes. A visible watermark is where you superimpose your logo or signature onto your image.

Visible Watermarks

Text – Any text including metadata with settings to change font, size, color, rotation, etc.
Text Arc – Text on a curved path.
Bitmap Graphic – A graphic is usually a transparent .png file like your logo, brand, copyright symbol, etc. To import.
Vector Graphic – Use over 5000 built-in vector (SVG’s) to display perfect graphics at any size.
Border Graphic – A vector border that can be stretched around an image and customized using a variety of settings.
Lines – Very popular with stock photo houses this is a subtle but hard to remove watermark.
Banner – Adds a banner area to any photo where text can be added.
QR Code – A kind of barcode with information like email or url in it’s coding.
Signature- Sign, import or scan your signature into a watermark to sign your creations.

An invisible watermark is hidden throughout the picture, within the numbers that create the photos, is a recognizable pattern that identifies it as being your artwork. It is harder to remove.

Invisible Watermarks

Metadata – Adding information (like your email or url) to the IPTC or XMP part of the photo file.
StegoMark – StegoMark is our proprietary steganographic method of embedding information like your email or url into the picture data itself. It can be available or hidden with a password.

iWatermark is a specialized tool to watermark photographs. Less expensive, more efficient, faster and simpler to use then PhotoShop. iWatermark is designed exclusively for watermarking by a photographer for photographers.

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 are used 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.
– 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 a watermark subtly displays, no matter where your photo or video goes, that it is owned by you.
✔ Always, watermark with name, email or url so your creations have some visible legal connection to you.
✔ Promote and protect your company, name and website by watermarking 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 watermarks which display they were created and are owned by you.
