There is a saying “once it goes online and will remain Internet for the rest of the life.” Many creators have reported copyright infringement, but not every platform has strong copyright policies and teams to handle the request. Credits are what describe your work, and internet users don’t have the time to find the artist’s name. Smaller creators should take time to watermark the photos and videos to avoid copyright infringement.
What is Visual Watermark?
Visual Watermark is a website, Windows, Mac, and Android app that has watermarking tools in it. The online website allows the users to upload photos and videos to watermark them to protect the creator from infringement. I have tested the Android app and Windows program for real-life experience. I will show you how to add watermark on videos/images, and I will do it on Android and Windows.
How to Watermark Images?
You can watermark images on the official Visual Watermark website, but I will show you how to do it on Android device.
Step 1: Open the app and tap on the “Add Images” option.
Step 2: Allow the app to access the gallery.
Step 3: Choose images that you want to watermark, and you can select multiple images at once.
Step 4: Tap “Next Step” located at the top right corner.
Step 5: Now, you got options such as “Add Text” or “Add Logo”.
Step 6: I added “sample” text, and you can customize the fonts, colors, size, location, and more.
Step 7: Customize the output options and then tap on “Watermark images”.
A. You can preview the output.
B. Select file output.
C. Resize images.
I left everything to default settings and didn’t mess around since the output quality is the source file.
Step 8: Give the app a minute to add the watermark and save it in the local storage.
Step 9: All images are saved in the internal storage.
Step 10: A separate folder is created in the gallery, and you can view the watermarked images in one place.
The original files were not modified, nor overwritten, which is a piece of good news to me. You can mess around with the Visual Watermark app and get the best output without paying a single penny.
How to Watermark Videos?
You can visit the official website to watermark the video online, and the developers added a dedicated Windows & Mac version. I have installed Visual Watermark on Windows 11 to measure the potential.
Step 1: Open the program and click on “Select Videos”.
You can Drag & Drop the videos without issues.
Step 2: Select the video file to add a watermark to it.
Step 3: Click on “Next Step” located at the top right corner.
Step 4: You got three options and choose one wisely.
A. Add Text
B. Add Logo
C. Add Group
I selected text to demonstrate the overall experience.
Step 5: You got several options on the right sidebar to make customization’s.
B. Add symbol
Tap on “Next Step” located on the top side.
Step 6: Select the output location.
Meanwhile, you can make changes to the output file.
Step 7: Click on “Watermark Video”.
Step 8: Let the Visual Watermark program render the video.
Step 9: The file is saved in the destination folder.
Step 10: I played the output video on the VLC Media player.
The video is watermarked successfully, and the video quality was on par with the original one. I’m happy to find out that VW worked on the quality output as well.
VW Dedicated Apps
VW is available for Windows, Mac, and Android, along with the web-based application. The official Visual Watermark website is enough for an occasional user to watermark the videos & photos.
Users, such as myself, require dedicated apps for multiple devices and the dev team added a stable version for all of them.
You can go to the the official Visual Watarmark website and download the setup file for free. The Pro version comes at a cost and unlocks the premium features to watermark images/videos on your machine.
Visual Watermark is an advanced service, and I’m happy with the number of customizations in the package. The dedicated apps for a wide range of devices are cherry on top, and they work efficiently as an online website. You can watermark photos or images within one minute, and I have experienced it on my mid-range Android 11 smartphone.
