Watermarks, the types created here, are visible marks that are placed on top of
an existing image. Watermarks are generally used to make it more difficult for people
to steal images without giving proper credit. With a watermark on your images, you
are protecting your images from use without your permission. Even if somebody copies
the image without your permission, the image will have the watermark on it letting
people know that you created it.
.jpg, .jpeg, .gif, .png, and .bmp are currently the only file types accepted. Also,
note that transparent images will be converted to non-transparent images.
For people with Photoshop, Illustrator, or other advanced graphical software, applying
watermarks isn't very difficult. However, many people don't have these kinds of
tools, which means that their images can't be photoshopped without more advanced
computer knowledge and extra hassle. With this website, anybody can apply personalized
watermarks quickly and without needing to know anything about graphic manipulating
software. Even people with advanced graphical know-how will probably find that this
site's process to be a quicker and easier solution than opening Photoshop and creating
a watermark from scratch.
Nope. There is no registration or signing up required. WMT Plus! does require you
to register and pay a monthly fee, but you only need to do that if you need some
of the extra features WMT Plus! provides.
WMT Plus! is Watermark Tool but with some extra features (like an increased
file size limit and the ability to download your images in a zip file). For more
information, please check out the features
Sorry, no. This site is not for storing your images. Image hosts suck up a lot of
bandwidth, and as such, can be expensive to run. Images here are deleted frequently
and the site prevents hotlinking images uploaded here. This helps keep the site
free for everybody. However, WMT Plus! members do have the ability to save
certain images they've uploaded for use in future watermarks.
Of course! WMT Plus! is a recent addition to the site that brought with it many
new features. There's actually still quite a few things that I have on my list of
"things to do" for this site.
