Adding a watermark to your photos before sharing them with the world is a necessary step. This can help you protect your original photography from unauthorized use and, at the same time, advertize your creative work. You can accomplish this task on the go, with the aid of free iPhone watermark apps.
In our previous post, we explored online apps that add logo to photo, but now we’ll focus only on iOS apps. If you’re struggling to choose an app from the iPhone App Store, PhotoMarks and eZy Watermark Photos Lite are two excellent options to cater for your watermaking needs. Let’s compare their advantages and disadvantages, and hopefully help you choose the best watermark app for your iPhone.
PhotoMarks vs eZy Watermark: Features Comparison
Both PhotoMarks and eZyWatermark Photos Lite for iPhone are designed with intuitive interfaces. This means that, no matter if you’re an experienced user or a novice at photo editing, you’ll quickly familiarize yourself with how everything works.
PhotoMarks allows you to add a copyright or trademark text, as well as a logo to your pictures. The app offers the possibility to fully customize the watermark. In that sense, you can freely change its position, size and rotation, adjust the transparency level, choose from a multitude of fonts and colors or apply special effects like stroke and shadow.
eZy Watermark Photos Lite places at your disposal multiple types of watermarks. In addition to a classic text and logo, you can add a hand-written signature or a QR code. The iPhone app lets you customize your mark in terms of alignment, placement, scale and rotation, select the color and font style (the free version is available only with a few fonts) or set the transparency.
Both iPhone apps let you work on multiple layers, undo and redo your actions and save your watermarks for later use. Both apps provide support for portrait and landscape mode and enable you to export your watermarked pictures with no quality loss.
Besides watermarking, PhotoMarks gives you the opportunity to add the date and time to your images. On the other hand, with eZy Watermark you can time stamp photos, crop and rotate them, as well as apply a black and white filter.
