JetPhoto Studio is a great little freeware application for Mac and PC for adding a watermark to your images. I spent a great deal of time trying to find a freeware program for my Mac that would add a watermark to a batch of images I wanted to publish on the web. There was plenty on freeware for a PC and plenty of software for a Mac that came with a price, but the program I desired was very elusive. One option that I wasn't too excited about was using Picasa, but you could only add text rather than an image as a watermark. After many failed Google searches, I ended up on download.com and did a search for "watermark" and filtered the results to only show results with free licences. There were four options and none looked too promising. To make a long and boring story short and exciting - I downloaded JetPhoto Studio and it rocks! The following is an illustrated guide to add a watermark to an image with JetPhoto Studio.
Step 1: Open JetPhoto Studio and create a new album, which I called "Watermark Demo".
Step 2: Drag and drop one or more images into the new album.
Step3 : Click on the "Actions" tab, and click on "Web Ready".
Step 4: Click on the "Resize" tab and select what size images you want generated. I only wanted a watermark on my demo image at a size of 1600 X 1200 pixels.
Step 5: Click on the "Watermark" tab and drag and drop your watermark mask into the rectangle. My watermark mask is white so you can't really see it too good. Select where you want the watermark positioned on your image.
Step 6: Click "Export Now!" and a folder will be placed on your desktop with your watermarked image(s).
To my delight, I have once again managed to find and use either freeware or open source software to accomplish what I need. I thank all the people (in this the case JetPhoto Studio authors and supporters) who put so much work into making free and quality software. BTW, I used Inkscape, an amazing open source application for creating professional vector graphics (like Adobe Illustrator) for my watermark. I'll probably be doing more illustrated how-to guides on other freeware and open source software for the Mac in the future.
