DATE: 10/24/17
OVERVIEW
San Francisco, CA – iWatermark, is the No. 1 and only watermarking tool available for all 4 platforms, iPhone/iPad, Mac, Windows and of course Android. iWatermark+ is the most popular & powerful professional watermarking tool for Android.

Plum Amazing CEO said “If you share an amazing photo or video 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 using iWatermark with your name, email or url then your intellectual property your photos/videos 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.

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.

QR Code – A kind of barcode with information like email or url in it’s coding.

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.

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.

Version 3.6 Version Changes
     – Multiple watermarks can now be applied to any video like you already could do to photos.
     – Import single or multiple photos from Dropbox. Use hardware/OS back key to go back in folder hierarchy.
     – Greater stability in low memory situations.
This app is perfect for use with Canon Inc., Nikon Inc., Olympus Inc., Sony Inc., Samsung, SLR, regular cameras and all Android smartphones and tablets.

2. Application of multiple watermarks to one photo.
3. Watermark one or multiple photos in batch mode.

“For years I’ve relied on iWatermark to allow me to easily put my logo on my images right on my iPhone or iPad. However, the newly released iWatermark+ takes this process to a whole new level.”
Photographer Terry White
Adobe Worldwide Creative Cloud Design Evangelist, Technology Guy, Gadget Guy and Best Selling Author.
Don’t settle for an ugly watermark or no watermark therefore no connection to you. iWatermark+ invisibly secures and protects your photos as intellectual property by adding subtle and/or invisible watermarks containing your business name, copyright info and/or link to your site. iWatermark+ is the first app to offer a selection of 2 invisible + 5 visible = 7 types of watermarks to fit different circumstances.

iWatermark+ for Android Summary
 
? No Ads
? No In App Purchases
iWatermark+, is the only watermarking tool available for all 4 platforms Android, iPhone/iPad, Mac and Windows. iWatermark+ is the most popular and advanced utility for creating watermarks and watermarking photos for professional and beginning photographers.
Sign your photos with 5 visible and 2 invisible = 7 watermark types. Use one or multiple watermarks simultaneously on one or a batch of photos. Watermark photos can then be shared safely to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Camera Album, Clipboard or Email.
Often, when a photo or video goes viral the owner/creator info is lost or forgotten. Adding a watermark subtly displays, no matter where your photo or video goes, that it is owned by you. The use of social media and the speed with which a photo/video goes viral has created a demand for new ways to verify photo/video ownership. iWatermark+ meets those demands to digitally sign your photos/artwork and claim, secure and maintain your intellectual property and reputation. Watermarking displays your ownership of photos and videos. Like signing your name to a document, watermarking subtly displays, no matter where your media goes in the world, that it’s your property.
Perfect for use with Canon Inc., Nikon Inc., Olympus Inc., Sony Inc., Samsung, SLR, regular cameras and all Android smartphones and tablets.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
 
DATE: March 22nd, 2016
 
OVERVIEW
Princeville, HI – Plum Amazing, LLC. iWatermark+ has now added iW•Cloud which allows uploading, downloading and sharing watermarks from the Cloud. This backs up iWatermark+’s ability to create, save and use the 11 different watermark types. From the 9 subtle visible to the 2 invisible watermarks to protect photos and videos.
 
“For years I’ve relied on iWatermark to allow me to easily put my logo on my images right on my iPhone or iPad. However, the newly released iWatermark+ takes this process to a whole new level.”
Photographer Terry White

These days any unique photo can suddenly go viral and lose all connection to it’s owner/creator. A watermark subtly displays, no matter where your photo goes, that it’s your property. Different watermark types can provide different types of protection.

The same iWatermark+ for iOS is now available for Android.
The Essential Android Watermarking App for Professional Photographers, Social Media, Business and Personal Use.
Easily, secure and protect your photos with a variety of watermark types both visible and invisible. Watermarks, once added to a photo, display that it is created and owned by you. Watermarking is increasingly important and is like signing your name to an image. A watermark can subtly display, no matter where your photo goes, that it’s yours. Visible watermarks can be used to add your email, url, a personal message, your signature, QR-codes or fun graphics. Invisible watermarks, like the unique Metadata and Steganographic ones in iWatermark can be used to add metadata or steganographic information like your name, link to your business and copyright info to any photo.
iWatermark+ is essential for photojournalists. Photojournalists need to add watermarks so they’re images don’t go viral before they appear in print.
Don’t settle for an ugly watermark or no watermark therefore no connection to you. iWatermark+ invisibly secures and protects your photos as intellectual property by adding subtle and/or invisible watermarks containing your business name, copyright info and/or link to your site. iWatermark+ is the first app to offer a selection of 2 invisible + 5 visible = 7 types of watermarks to fit different circumstances.
