hmmmm not all of us can afford to own PAINTSHOP PRO or those other whizbang graphic programs, so a great big thanks to you wonderful people at GOTD for giving me and others who are not so well off financially, to download and own and use this software. A motherly hug to you all at this site!

Due to comments about better open source, pass on today's offer. Thanks, Whiterabbit. Do you know where I can get a decent full (not demo) sub or tank game that works on Vista. I tried the Steel Panthers, but it gave an error. I think one was 'OS not supported'.

I need help! Any zip I download somehow loses the .exe file when I extract it. I've tried several times with multiple offers. Also, if I try to just click on the .exe, rather than put it somewhere on my computer, I get an error message telling me the file doesn't exist, when I darn well can see it in the zip!

I'm thinking this has to do with some protection I have on my computer, but I can't figure it out. I've tried turning off my anti-virus program and firewall, still no good.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thank you!

Huh? To those who say other software can do this. If you do image work and want to do batch watermarks this kind of thing is the way to go. Yes you can get free software but this supports PSD files and most other softwares do not. This would be a great time saver for photogs and such. A little mor straight forward that the pro software for some simple tasks. Great deal!

Comment #11 by Luta Gemma

Geez, why do you hate water marks and low res/small pics? Is it because you like to "borrow" others art to muck up in PS? Instead of taking your own Hi-Res photos and buying good resource material? Sorry GOTD, but seeing that comment is exactly why people like me DO use a watermark and create itty bitty images for the web! Ugh!

ThanX to comment #17 StanDP! Great link and will give it a try! :)

Watermarks are a stupid throwback to last-century thinking. C'mon people - this is the digital age. Do you REALLY think wrecking your images with some stupid watermark is going to "protect" you ? HAHAAHAHA - get real.

In most instances, I find the Reviews of More Interest and Help,
in selecting Future Software, than that Software Offered Free For Day.
I would like to Thank all the Reviewers who took the time to share,
their Knowledge and Input on the subject.
I will Use the Review Insights to go explore Other Sites to see,
if the Software they recommended is useful.
One Reviewer Recommended Fast Stone Products. I can tell you that
Fast Stone Screen Capture is EXCELLENT for capturing an entire,
web page top to bottom, even the part not visible on your computer screen!
Again, to the Reviewers, Thank You for you Very Helpful Input.

Best Wishes, Steven Block

Wednesday’s free games have been posted over in the forums. I've posted a good tank strategy game called Steel Panthers: World at War, and because it's quite a large download I decided to add some more games which include an eclectic mix of games ranging from a Diablo clone called Shadowflare, Monopoly and a couple of puzzle packs one of which contains 25 games (and its less than 1Mb in size). You can find out more by following the link to the forums:

ImageCommander, far as I can tell, might be useful for a quik & easy prepare of lower rez pics for on-line display, &/or DVD buttons etc... In most cases that means plain ol' jpg or png output -- nothing fancy -- so the only worry is if it'll read your existing image files. Opened jpg, png, & tif [once I found one ;-) ... tif isn't used nearly as much nowadays]. Supposed to support bmp too -- most everything does -- but forget any proprietary formats, & even popular tga.

That said, ImageCommander has such a small footprint, such a low impact on Windows, I'd suggest just about everyone that thinks they might have a use for ImageCommander try it. The only way to really tell how fast it is, or not, is by trying it on your own PC, with it own warts & all. ;-) If it doesn't work out, pretty painless to make it go away.

ImageCommander appears to be written in Delphi, FWIW, but the program's single file doesn't seem to contain any version or much other info. It only uses the Registry to store the key, so ImageCommander has an extremely small footprint. It was also easy to turn into a 100% portable application using the Portable App Creator (PAC) you can download from the forums at the portableapp site [portableapps,com]. The only trick was to activate ImageCommander (add the reg key) before taking the 2nd snapshot in PAC.

To lostinlodos (message 23) : You stated repeatedly that the software is very SLOW. Yet, others like Ashraf (@15) and APPitizer (@22) claim otherwise. Ashraf (@15) found it fast at processing the images, but also pointed out that it is a memory hog and CPU intensive at times. APPitizer (@22)stated that he processed 50 images in about 14 seconds on a Pentium IV 3.0Ghz machine. I suppose you tested certain functions and found the response SLOWer in comparison to other image software you have run on your machine. It would be useful to the rest of us to know what some of those SLOW functions were. Also, you told us about the operating systems (XP, Vista) you tested the program on, but we were not provided enough information about the configuration of the machine(s). For example, how much memory and on what CPUs are your systems running on.

In a subsequent message, I found very interesting your discussion on the serious limitations this software has when handling TIFF files with multiple images inbedded in them,. However, this being version 1.0, I am not surprised that the developper left out the more complex image format features or less commonly used variations. Besides, I bet the majority of people just need software that deals with the most basic commonly used formats such as JPGs, BMPs, GIFs; they do not have the same needs as those who work a lot with images and who strive to maintain a higher quality in the images they process. For sure, this software is not complete and will not meet the needs of some people (especially professional photographers or graphic artists), but some of its functions may still come handy to many people who have no need for any of those advanced or rare image format features.

I can understand a developper for wanting to release a product (especially v1.0) with reduced functionnalty or limitations of rarely used features as long as the price requested is also scaled back accordingly. However, I am not willing to forgive or to pay any price for a product that is released prematurely by the developper; that is, one that is still missing a HELP file, includes major programming errors, poorly thought-out User-interface, etc.

I think I will stick to Photoshop, it can do more then this program can. Sure, Photoshop cost a lot, but hey, for the price it's well worth it. It's well worth looking into buying for anyone that does anything in the graphics niche.

The programme is promising but needs several improvements. For example, the text cannot be BOLD, ITALIC or UNDERLINED: basic text editor functions missing. Also, changing backgrounds is tedious as a simple 'NONE' command is missing for occasions when you don't need one.

I've yet to see a watermarking program that I couldn't remove the mark from. I've tested many & immediately removed it with Inpaint, that I got here for free.
I already know how to use Watermark Factory, also given here. It does a good job & runs fine on both Vista & XP so I pass again! If it ain't broke, don't fix it...........................

This programs ability to add text or image watermarks to any picture wasn’t as important to me as its advertised ability to create advanced thumbnails. I just had to check out those “cool” styles and effects so I installed the program. Unfortunately, I was not able to do any of those things because I ran into a problem. The problem was the developer forgot to put in a help file. No explanations about the interface, no icon identifiers, no how to’s of any kind.

Perhaps #5, #15, #22 who wrote their synopsis, which I assume was after they had thoroughly worked with this program, could enlighten us on those particulars.

2nd two cents worth of notes:
Doesn't support JPEG 2000, PNG-a, AGG, and RIC-PNGs.
Does support BMP, JPG/JPEG (older versions) and standard PNG.

GIF support is iffy. Remember there are many variants of GIF

TIFF is not a graphics file. It's a container for graphics files. Just like AVI holds video, audio, text, and image files, TIFF holds multiple images or image parts.

NOT compatible with TIFF v6 or extended forms. Will only tag the first file or lead files in a multi-image TIFF file.
AGAIN for users looking to "tag" or watermark images of text files/scans THIS PROGRAM DOES NOT CONTINUE PAST THE FIRST IMAGE IN A TIFF FILE.
Can NOT work with CAD images inside the TIFF CAD files. Has issues recompiling tiff line art if multiple files make up a single image.
CAN NOT DECOMPRESS compressed TIFF files using the LZ4 or greater compression algorithm.

SLOW!!

Installs runs, and uninstalls fine on XP x32, XP IA64, and Vista U x64. Also runs under Wine but doesn't activate properly with GOTD on Linux. One of the few GOTD programs that does so. Few quirks under Vista. May be that it's an x32 program.

SLOW!

There are MANY free programs that do this as well, FAR faster. Just check sourceforge.net for +image +watermark.

GIMP is free and just as SLOW but does everything that photoshop does as well.

Microsoft has/had an ultimate extra beta powertoy for paint that could create batch process scripts: also free.

If you don't need to batch, just use paint.

Just too slow for the price. Note to developer: make this freeware, add a monster banner ad to the top of the page, and make money off the banner ad for this one. OR, consolidate the code and add multithreading support. Judging by the revision/version number this is still an infant program. Sorry, but it just isn't ready to be out of beta yet. Not at this price. A little power-hungry for something that's this SLOW. Value? $9.99 as is.

Slow!!!

PROS:
- Large range of tweakable effects. I wasn't able to find a free and easy to use program that offers such control over the effects applied.
- Transparency support for reflections, shadows etc. when saved as png.
- Reasonable speed: 50 files in 14 seconds on my 3.06Ghz Pentium 4 machine.

CONS:
- A bug when removing watermarks - entire program exits.
- Resize feature could be less confusing
- Watermark placement can be simplified (can't drag watermarks around)
- No saving of presets

Rating: 3/5

Free Alternatives:

- FastStone Photo Resizer
- Phatch (promising program, needs UI tweaks though and an installer)
- Digital Image Tool

What's the sense in putting a watermark on an image anyway? As if someones pics are so special that others like them can't be found for free or cloning tools can't remove them. If you're going to put your images up for sale then thumbnail them or set your site up to where the images can't be copied. Watermarking is as old as tape driven software.

Software has a few nifty effects especially for scrapbooking but it seems to be absurdly slow to apply them and preview. My phone (N95) can do image transitions much faster than this can achieve. UI looks promising but it does lag just a little too much to be a "daily user" but was fun trying it out. Also that 1.6 version offered will NOT work with the serial as supplied for this old version which is a bit of a pain as even though we are clearly advised "no upgrades" it would have been a nice gesture.

I did like how you can "input a pile of images" and output a pile of images and it looks certainly like a promising application. I'll pack it away for possible future use anyhow.

My recommendations (all Free ware of course)

GiMP
ImageMagick
Irfanview

I've used better from GAOTD, this one is being uninstalled again.

As for those who say you can do this in any graphics program, yes that's true but if you've got 50-odd images to put a watermark in its a darned sight quicker with one of these programs!

God, I hate watermarks. They're almost as bad as low-resolution pictures and videos. I hate trying to search for a picture and finding a million images that are 150x275, and only one person has a picture that's 640x480.

If you're going to upload pictures, make them decent. Darn Wikipedia hates high-resolution images because of the threat of unauthorized commercial usage.

Photoshop any version and even paintshop pro do more than this program could hope to, if your a new photo editor then this may hold some form of charm for you.. if youve been around a while you'll most likely pass on this "freebie" since you'll know theres better programs out there that will do a far better job.

There's a ton of imaging software out there, I have some I never use. I usually use Irfanview for viewing, resizing, etc.
Image Commander has some nice features that I like but I couldn't find a help file, maybe there's one online. I could have used it, now I have alot of pics to delete,
I used Add Folder, did a mask effect to a pic, just to see, you know,
and it did the the entire folder( I didn't replace originals, though)
So now I know about that. Live and learn, so if you want to effect just one pic use Add File

Great program for batch editing! Usage is going to be more limited to photographers such as myself who get tired of using CS3 to do the editing and want something more "brainless." Great interface, but lacks a lot of customizing options. The program installed great on Vista Home Prem. and did exactly as advertised. Full review and screen shots below.
