I was remiss in misspelling "r.p.d", so I fix & clarify...

Which freeware image watermarking app do you use on Windows?
o Why do you like that particular watermarker above the others?

There are plenty of batch-oriented payware & trialware desktop watermarking
apps; but this question asks about a freeware watermarking Windows apps.

A quick search show they seem to exist - so the question is for those who
ALREADY use them - which ones they like - and why (to save the rest of us
the time & effort necessary to test them all out ourselves & report back).

(This list goes on two score more freeware watermark apps!)

Given that's a few score (or so) to test, it's worth asking the question
first of the people who ALREADY have experience with watermarking apps.

Which freeware image watermarking app do you use on Windows?
o Why do you like that particular watermarker above the others?

--
Since Usenet is a potluck where everyone shares their value, please do not
post if you do NOT already use a watermarking app since that wouldn't be useful.

Who's this "our" - who are "we" here?

o Where the main question is which do you prefer, & why you prefer it?

[]
To avoid specification creep: what do you mean by/want from
watermarking? I presume you mean something more than putting " 2019
Arlen Holder" in the corner, which most image-handling software can do;
I use IrfanView, for both adding in-image text (it has two ways), and
adding things to the various metadata fields (and Exifer for the ones
Irfan misses, but I haven't used it for ages). But I'm guessing you want
something different, such as steganography, or the almost-invisible
"leaf" symbols that Ancestry use.

Never. For me, there has to be a meaning. There's not much meaning in eating
bugs. - Darcey Bussell (on whether she'd appear on /I'm a Celebrity/), in RT

Hi JP Gilliver,

Usenet is a potluck where everyone who posts brings something of value to
share, just as everyone who reads learns something of value from them.

Hence, I consider that a question with an obvious answer.
o If you attend a Usenet potluck, where people share items of value
o The "we" is everyone who participates in the Usenet potluck

I test software all the time & write tutorials all the time
o I often use the royal "we" to collectively mean everyone on this ng.

Together, we are more knowledgeable than we are sitting at home, alone.

o Where the main question is which do you prefer, & why you prefer it?

To avoid specification creep: what do you mean by/want from
watermarking?


Actually, I don't have specific needs other than watermarking.
o I'm fleshing out my software hierarchy - where watermarking is missing

That's why I asked for people with EXPERIENCE why they like it.
o And what they use.

I presume you mean something more than putting " 2019
Arlen Holder" in the corner, which most image-handling software can do.


There's a reason I asked specifically for people with experience.
o I want them to share what it is that they do with watermarking.

I use IrfanView, for both adding in-image text (it has two ways), and
adding things to the various metadata fields (and Exifer for the ones
Irfan misses, but I haven't used it for ages).


Long ago I edited EXIF tags (e.g., to remove geolocation data).
o But that's a completely different topic, I think.

I just now snapped this exif editing screenshot for you...
a. Using AnalogExif on Windows:
https://i.postimg.cc/tJFYd5cm/exif02.jpg
b. Using ExifToolGui on Windows:
https://i.postimg.cc/JnJgRDvW/exif03.jpg

Here's a list of EXIF editors I compiled just yesterday for everyone:
https://groups.google.com/d/msg/comp.mobile.ipad/H4nZD8_XOS0/HhiTDi1vAgAJ
https://groups.google.com/d/msg/comp.mobile.ipad/H4nZD8_XOS0/h_Hcf_ZyAgAJ

I just noticed that, even after all that effort, I missed "exifer"
o Hence I thank you for bringing it up as another EXIF-editing tool

Together, we are more capable than we are sitting at home, alone.

But I'm guessing you want
something different, such as steganography, or the almost-invisible
"leaf" symbols that Ancestry use.


There's a good reason I asked for experienced users' input...

I want what I had asked for which is for experienced users' suggestion
o Of what _they_ like, and of why they like the watermarker they use.

Your suggestion of an almost-invisible symbol is useful.
o We just need to determine a good watermarker that inserts that symbol.

Together, we are more powerful than we are sitting at home, alone.

Hi John J P Gilliver,

Your suggestion of "exifer" is a great case of where we are more capable
together, than we are alone, sitting at our computers all day at home.

I looked for the canonical site for Exifer, which I found, I think, here
https://sourceforge.net/projects/exifer/

But the "website" url just loops back.

Certainly I can find non-canonical downloads for "Exifer"... but...
o Does anyone reading this know what happened to the canonical site?

--
Watch out for this site which is different https://www.thexifer.net/

Is "this" the canonical site for Exifer, given its sourceforge is dead?
http://www.photo-freeware.net/download/action/show/Item/exifer/

Or, is that a different tool than what used to be on sourceforge?
