Watermark Magick has four main menus. Let’s have a quick look on them.
- File: Watermark Magick allows you to specify an input format and an output format (in advance) for the image files you process. The File menu contain options for the same. Here you can specify in which format you want to add files from the source folder (jpg, png, bmp, or all) and in which format you want to save the output files (jpg, png, bmp, or gif). Apart from that, you can also choose a resize parameter from the preset values (1280×1024, 1024×768, 800×600, 640×180, or original), if you want.
- Directories: This menu contain options to specify a source folder, a destination folder, and watermark file (text, image, or frame) to be added to the images. However, these can also be specified through the program interface.
- WebGalerie: This menu contains options to create a web gallery of the watermarked images.
- Options: This menu is used for changing language and debugging purposes.
Steps to Add Watermarks on the Images:
First browse the source directory and destination directory by clicking on the respective buttons given on the program interface. Watermark Magick will display a preview of all the images in a wide window on the right side. (There’s also a tab to view the preview of images after watermarking, but that works only after processing the images)
Now once you have specified the source and destination folders, you can pick the watermark file to be used by the software to watermark the chosen images. You can specify a text, an image, or a frame as a watermark.
If you want to watermark images by a picture, go to the “Picture” tab (mid left of the window). Set the picture’s folder path by clicking on the browser button (besides picture source directory). Then scroll down (if required) and choose the requisite image. Then set the alignment and size of the picture using size tag and x/y position options. You can also choose from the default pictures provided by Watermark Magick.
If you want some text to be displayed as watermark, then go to the text tab (besides picture tab). Type-in the desired text in the text box (just below the Text tab name). Set the color/style, font, and alignment.
And if you want a frame around your image, then go to frame tab, and browse for the desired frame by clicking on the frame source directory button and then set the size and alignment. You can also choose from the default frames provided by Watermark Magick.
