You visit the link: http://watermarkup.com/watermark.html. After that, you will see the application interface.
You can see that the application has a simple layout with a toolbar at the bottom of the screen. The toolbar contains some functions of the application: Add text to photos, Add logos to photos, Choose pre-built text templates to add, Clone (Copy) and Remove (Delete) text/image objects, Backward and Forward ( if you are familiar with Photoshop, these functions are the Z-index function.)
The right sidebar contains some options to upload and download photos.
The left sidebar will contain the previews of the photos. You will see the bar after you upload some images to the application.
And the central area of the application is the main canvas. Your photos will appear here when you click on the preview of each photo. When there is a photo on the canvas, you can choose options to add text or logo to your photo.
How to add watermarks and logo to 30 photos at a time
Step 1: Upload
The first thing you need to do is to upload your photos. If you don’t upload them, the application cannot understand what you want to process.
To upload photos, you click on the button “UPLOAD PHOTO”. In the free version, you can upload 3 photos at a time and watermark 3 photos at once.
In the pro version, you can upload 30 photos at a time and watermark 30 photos at the same time. We will test to increase the number of photos in the next version. The file types should be PNG, JPG, JPEG.
After uploading your photos, you will see the left sidebar and the previews of your uploaded images. But at this time, you cannot see the main canvas.
You need to click on one of the uploaded images. The image you clicked will appear on the main canvas. If you want to change the image to edit, you click on the preview of that image. When you edit, add text, and add your logo to the image that is on the main canvas, the rest of the images will be automatically applied. But we have an option for you to edit each image separately.
When you see one of the images on the main canvas, you can use the functions to add text and watermark to your photos.
Step 2: Add watermark to photos
Add logo to your photos
If you have already had a logo, you can click on “ADD LOGO” to get started. There is an open window for you to choose your logo. The file type of your logo should also be PNG, JPG, JPEG.
After you chose your logo, the logo will be added to the current photo. To move the logo, you need to click on the logo to select it. After being selected, there are small squares around the logo and when you hover over the logo, the mouse icon will change.
To move the logo, you need to left-click on the logo and hold your mouse to move to the area you want. You will have the freedom to move your logo and resize it. To resize it, you move your mouse over the small squares, you will see that you mouse changes and you can resize the logo.
The logo is also automatically applied to other images. To check this, you can click on the preview of each image, and you will see that.
After you are satisfied with the position of the logo, you can move to the next step: Download.
Add text to photos
You need to click on “ADD TEXT” to add text to your photos. You can choose the color when you click on the color picker. You can choose the font you want and other properties. After that, you click on the last button (+) to add your first text to your photos.
Make the text Bold
If you want to edit the text like what you want, you need to double click on the text object. After that, you can type and edit it.
You can also resize the text and move it to the place you want by clicking, holding your mouse left, and moving it.
You can copy the text object by selecting “CLONE” or use Ctrl + C and Ctrl + V. But remember that if you want to copy a text object, you need to select it first. The same process is applied to change its properties. If you want to edit its color, opacity, fonts, and other properties, you need to click to select it first.
Add text templates to your photos
The text templates are the ones we designed for you. You simply click on the template you want and edit it like edit any text objects we discussed above.
But when it comes to text templates, sometimes some templates are multi-part watermarks. For example, the second template is illustrated below. The template contains two smaller watermarks: John Doe Photography and www.website.com.
You can click one each smaller watermark to move it or edit its properties.
But when you want to combine them, you can press and hold Shift while clicking to select two smaller watermarks. They will become one bigger watermark. From there, you can move the bigger watermark to anywhere you like.
But currently, you cannot edit the properties of the bigger watermark. You need to select each smaller one to edit and combine again.
You can see that the template or the text will be applied to all other images as well.
But we also provide you with an option. Because the text will be applied to all the photos, but we provide you with the ability to edit a single image. Sometime because of the size and the resolution of the images, you would like to change the position of the watermark. To do it, you can click on the small black square near the preview of the image you want to change.
After you click on the full black circle, the circle will lose a half of it. It means that the image can be edited now without affecting other images. You can move and change its properties without affecting the rest of your images.
Step 3: Save your photos to your computer.
There are two options for you to choose from when it comes to downloading. The first option is to download each photo that is already on the main canvas. The button “DOWNLOAD” will help you do that. If you want to download another image, you need to click on the preview of that image to make it appear on the canvas. If the image isn’t on the canvas, you cannot download it.
The second option is to download all your photos in the left sidebar. You only need to click on the button “DOWNLOAD ALL” and after that, you can download a zip file that contains all watermarked photos.
