Q. Where can I find free watermark software? Where can I watermark images online?
A. Funny you asked that question I have something right here where you can watermark your photos online called “The Watermark Maker”. Do not use a big photo, use something that is web friendly like 500px by 500px. Others will work but may appear in weird places, lol. Make sure that you select “Dark” transparency for best results. If you need to do the same image over give it a different file name. If you try to upload the same image over and over again you will only see the first ones results.
To create a watermark:
- choose an image file.
- Enter some text.
- Choose an available font.
- Choose a font size.
- Choose a color
- Make the watermark transparency “Dark: for best results
- If you want your text to angle up to the right like this / then choose that option.

- If you want ti straight across like this _ then choose that option.
- Next choose the position top, middle or bottom.
- Hit submit file and view your watermark.
- YOUR DONE!
