For the past 2 decades iWatermark has been the most popular multi-platform tool available for Mac & Windows as iWatermark Pro & on iOS/Phone/iPad & Android as the apps iWatermark and iWatermark+. iWatermark lets you add your personal or business watermarks to any photo or video. Once added this watermark displays your creation and ownership of this photograph or artwork.
What is iWatermark? iWatermark is software that allows a new kind of watermarking. It uses a variety of visible & invisible digital watermarks to connect the photo with it’s creator.
Who is iWatermark for? Every person who takes photos & videos. We’ve been told it is essential for photojournalists, pro photographers, and people who use Instagram, Facebook and other social media sites.

We consider everything you do to customize a photo, to make it your own, a watermark. In the past watermarks were invented and used to ID items like stamps, currency, banknotes, passports and other official documents. Nowadays, in the same way, digital watermarks infuse your identity and style into your photos and videos. The photographer Ansel Adams had a distinctive style that marks his photos, just as the unique painting style of Monetmarks his paintings. Ansel Adams used black and white, clarity, contrast, huge, unpopulated, and majestic landscapes as his signature even though he also signed his work. Like the great photographers and artists you can style your work so that it is not only beautiful and recognizable but also helps protect your creations. This is why we see each of the items below even metadata, stegomark, resize and filters as watermarks because they can imbue a photo with your particular style.

Photos from cameras are anonymous. When you take a photo and share it, your friends share it, then their friends, then total strangers. Each time it has less and less and eventually no connection to you. To the rest of the world your photo is ‘creator unknown’. Many a great photo has gone viral (become wildly popular) that lacked any clue to the owner’s identity. That means, without any way for others to give acknowledgment, thanks or payment to the owner. The solution to this problem is iWatermark, whose purpose is to infuse your photos with your identity in a variety of ways, visible and invisible. The technologies in iWatermark and the 11 watermark tools help you to sign, personalize, stylize, secure and protect your photos.
