#7 You are a self righteous ____ . Now, there are obviously lawful uses of this software. If you can't figure one out, you lack imagination.

#21 Not necessarily. If the original is unavailable a relevant copy is admissible into evidence - look up "best evidence rule". The best evidence rule has been codified in Rules 1001 to 1008 of the Federal Rules of Evidence.

. . . Now at this point I must correct myself. I should say, there would be legitimate uses of the software if it worked. Unfortunately, it did not recognize the watermark on the document I was trying to use.
And $50 is ridiculous for this limited app.

I just tested the same pdf file with various other software that I happen to have.

I confirm that EXpert PDF Editor Professional Edition Ver 4.1.670.404 is able to remove the watermark.

It does this beautifully and selectively i.e. you can choose to remove the watermark from specific pages and leave the watermark on other pages.

Tested it with a sample.
http://www.stefanochizzolini.it/common/contents/projects/clown/samples/WatermarkSample.pdf

It FAILED to remove the watermark. All of you can repeat this test and see for yourselves.
It was able to remove the two images at the top of the page.

The software is named PDF Logo Remover. That is CORRECT.

It is not named PDF WATERMARK Remover.

The advertising copywriter got carried away and included the ability to remove Watermarks in his description of the software.

Or the company does not know the difference between an Image inserted within a document - and a WATERMARK.

@ #7 -- I am completely with you in your ethical concerns. There would be one legitimate use for software like this if it was able to clean background "noise", dust marks etc from photocopied or old scanned documents processed into a PDF. In that case, it could be very useful even to the original creator of the document or the document's archivalist.

This software would be so much better if it could do that even if only to some extent. I don't really know of any other software that can even approach this task. ANYONE ??

Installed and tried it on several multipage files. It failed every time. Sometimes it could not identify the image to remove, other times it wanted to remove the entire page. Sometimes it just crashed. Not a very useful program.

I am shocked that many would want to VIOLATE the (c), TM and SM marks which when proven, attest to the special, unique or special aspect6s of a person, group or company making something to be protected and the symbols which show or prove it.

I strongly suggest GAOTD review its policy on giving away this kind of software.

Other than this, GAOTD has done good allowing special leverage with it's members to bring good, solid, various offerings with a pro touch.

I fully agree with Lawrence (@11). I have tried it with an unprotected pdf with one logo and one watermark; it recognizes only the logo but not the watermark.

Maybe for this reason the name is "Logo remover", not "Watermark remover" ... :-)

For me, thumbs down.

Thanks anyway by this giveaway.

Personally I've never had the problem this software purports to solve. Few professional publications would create a document that is difficult to read on screen or print. Since printing PDFs is less and less necessary anyway, I figured this came into being to violate copyrights. The price and the country of origin sway me to think I am right. If you stand to make a lot of money selling someone else's work as your own, $50 is not so much a cost as an investment. Would anybody here pay $50 for this, if using it for strictly legit purposes?

1. Not able to handle transparent gif in proper way: all such types of images are shown in black thumbs -- difficult to recognize which image to remove.

2. Not able to handle images properly: an outer frame is not removed along with image.

3. Not able to handle images with large size in acceptable response time.

4. Not able to set the filter by resolution.

5. Not able to specify a single page to scan images; requires to scan all images embeded in PDF. As a result, it takes a lot of time to treat a PDF document with many images. As watermarks generally show in each page, it's not necessary to scan all pages.

6. Not able to remember the last dest. directory but always use c:\results as default -- you have to specify the path every time manually.

A no-nonsense installation and a not too bad interface on opening, but it couldn't remove a watermark.
I always use the free version of PDF-XChange Viewer, if you attempt to use any of the Pro functions it puts a watermark on the page and this is what I did.
The program found some embedded images but not the watermar I'm glad to say, the security of PDF documents is a very important feature.
Another interesting feature that not everyone is aware of, is that when you embed an image in a PDF page and you make it very small, when you zoom in on it there is no loss of detail. This is totally the opposite of a Word document were even on a small zoom it just becomes a mass of pixels.

I tried it with a magazine with online archives. I have no illegal intent but I would love to be able to read them without the watermark spread across the page. It removed everything on the page but the watermark. I'll be uninstalling.

W7 x64
v1.0

registers simply with the provided key

includes CHM Help file

installs into directory of your choice, 6 MB
essentially a single file, PDFLogoRemover.exe

you can only load a single file at a time

oddly you can "Add More" files on the screen where
you would actually perform the removal, but from
that screen, you do not know what if anything it is
going to do?

revised file output directory is (essentially) fixed
IOW, it defaults to C:\RESULTS (to some fixed location).
but there is no method to have it write, with or without
rename, to like the source directory

after removal, option given to open the output directory

for the one file i "fixed" so far, there was nothing
left, i.e., everything was removed :-)

the last used source directory is remembered on restart
(good)

window is resizeable, but really servers no purpose
as the thumbnail image size does not change. would
be nice if it had a "fit" feature

a 1.7 MB, 46 page (basically text) document took a
good 4 minutes to finally load, using 25% CPU (one
core) all during that time. in the end (obviously
given the source) there really wasn't anything for
it to do

after conversion, your choices are to exit, or to
go back (followed by back again), at which point
you are at the start of the program, but then, &
again oddly, it has not cleared your last selected
file, not from the preview nor from the watermark,
so you then need to manually remove both (assuming
you didn't want to repeat the same process on the
same file)

no Ctrl+O shortcut to open a file, so you're forced
to use a mouse to get to the open dialog

dialog does default to *.pdf, so that part works
correctly

after back, back, then selecting a new file, when
you get back to the Destination folder page, the
PRIOR, file you worked on is listing on that
screen, so you are asked if you want to overwrite
it. have no idea what would actually happen if
you did? and to top it off, the file that you
had currently chosen (from the screen before) is
NOT listed on the actual remove screen, so you can
do NOTHING. so it appears that even though are
able to "back, back", it really serves no purpose.

IOW, the flow of the program is flawed, has not
been thought out correctly.

FINALLY, after perusing a LOT of PDFs, i've come
across one where it worked (kind of). kind of in
that while it did remove the selected picture
portions of the PDF, it also removed some textual
elements that it should not have

so, FAIL.

Free and portable alternative for altering PDFs in general:

OpenOffice Portable with Sun/Oracle PDF Import Extension:
"Hybrid PDF/ODF files will be opened in OpenOffice.org as an ODF file without any layout changes". I have tried a former version successfully.

It seems that success depends on pdf contents. If PDF's pages are images you need to have OCR (optical character recognition) for conversion to text, e.g. free IrfanView Portable with Kadmos OCR plugin (but commercial FineReader and OmniPage are better in critical cases).

And if necessary I will use PDF Logo Remover for hindering silly pdfs to empty my printer cartridges fast and recklessly.

@7 Just because you don't understand something or find a "legitimate use for something does not make it useless.

There are many legitimate uses for example showing a document to a jury, where you wish to redact or remove content.

That being said. there are times when you don't have the source files and wish to use a reduced portion of a PDF. Acrobat and other (there are others easier to use and more powerful) applications are complex - expensive - and are not good at editing. often it is easier to convert to a text editor and edit and republish in PDF.

I will pass on this as I have tools to do these things, and the offering is weak as redaction and markup are tools required in my presentations. This is good as free but lacks depth of features to be a contender.

"Sometimes I have to wonder just why this type of software even comes into existence in the first place."


From the above blurb (just read, please...LOL!):

Remove annoying watermarks and clean busy backgrounds, saving toner or ink when printing multi-page documents!


"The only thing I can think of that this type of software would be useful for is to remove copyrights, logos, and other branding symbols from a PDF document, to “re-purpose” it to the advantage of the person doing the modification."


Well, if you use this FREE TOOL there is no way to remove copyrights, even with an app like this GAOTD:

So be happy & don't worry...LOL!!

Today's giveaway is a very useful software, especially for those geeks like me who work with PDF files almost on a daily basis!!

But... 50 $ for doing just such a task only??? Come on...a professional Security Suite Software is even cheaper nowadays....LOL!!

And anyway, it's possible to remove watermark from PDFs for FREE, as long as you know how to do that, of course....LOL!!

These are the steps to follow...

1) if the PDF to work with is PROTECTED use this excellent FREE tool to unlock it:

http://www.softpedia.com/get/Office-tools/PDF/PDF-Password-Remover-Portable.shtml

2) then convert the (unlocked) PDF doc into an IMAGE file using free online services like ZAMZAR or better yet a great tool like PDFZILLA (hurry up ==> Time Limited Offer):

http://www.pdfzilla.com/giveaway.html

3) once you have converted the PDF file into an IMAGE you can remove any WATERMARK sitting there using a FREE IMAGE EDITOR like GIMP or IRFANVIEW, just to mention the two most famous ones.

4) after removing watermarks, as described above, you are finally ready to go back again to the original PDF file format, by using this FREE tool designed to flawlessly convert an IMAGE to a PDF file:

http://www.pdfarea.com/Image-to-PDF-Converter-Free.htm

And you are done, dudes!!

Cost of the entire operation ==> 0 $/€

50$ for this GAOTD???? Beyond belief....LOL!!

If you instead want to protect your PDF files from online thieves through Copyrights, Security and DRM protection, look no further: PDF OWNER GUARD is the right (FREE) tool for that!!

http://www.armjisoft.com/?page=pdfownerguard


Enjoy & Prosper (for FREE of course!!!)!!

Ciao
Giovanni (or "Gio Diabolik", if you prefer that...LOL!!)

Don #7: This past week, I downloaded a 100-page PDF from a company that had put together a hardware spec manual that I thought would be useful. The information was not secret knowledge, but nevertheless, they put their watermark on every page, anyway. I had to slowly and manually remove each watermark with my PDF editor. I could have used a program like this, IF it does what it says it does. Unfortunately, I don't have that PDF with me now to try it out.

OK, Guys, don't panic, it is in Russian! Anyway, here is a way to change it back to English (or German, Spanish, French):
Настройки means Settings, click on it to change the language back to English and select English. Done!

To Register either in Russian or English:
Настройки or Settings and select the second one which does not appear anymore on mine as it is written Check for updates (Проверка обновлений). It should be written something like that:
Pегистрировать. Click on it to enter the code provided in the Read me of the GAOD zip, copy it and paste it, it should work no problem.

The program works, but not for all logo. And I was hoping it would accept djvu files (another pdf form) but it only accepts pdf! So, I am very disappointed.

Sometimes I have to wonder just why this type of software even comes into existence in the first place. The only thing I can think of that this type of software would be useful for is to remove copyrights, logos, and other branding symbols from a PDF document, to "re-purpose" it to the advantage of the person doing the modification.

One reason that PDFs originally became so popular as a distribution format was that it's difficult for the "average" person to modify a PDF document and insert/delete content - including said copyright information. Since Adobe Acrobat is prohibitively expensive to begin with, "pirates" won't normally use it to modify documents, and while most "office" software suites now offer the capability of outputting a PDF document, none of them offer the capability of modifying an existing PDF once it's already been created.

Ostensibly, if you need to substantially change the content of a PDF file, then why don't you simply use the same software you used to create the PDF in the first place? The answer most people will give you? They didn't create the document in the first place - they wish to modify it, and they probably don't have the authority to implement the changes they want to make to the document anyway, which under copyright law lies solely at the discretion of the creator of the document!

Whether this software actually works or not is completely moot (irrelevant) to me. There is no legitimate use I can think of for this software, so I won't be downloading it. In anticipation of the responses from those who will likely chide me for taking so much trouble to write about something I don't - or won't - even use, I simply wish to point out why I choose to have nothing to do with it, and I strongly encourage anyone with a single grain of ethics to do the same.

But having said that, I once again thank everyone at GAOTD for all that they do to bring us our daily "software sampler" to "gamma test" for the various developers who really want to put their software thru the wringer!

This is an incredibly "simple" piece of software. The utility scans the PDF file you select and identifies all the embedded pictures. You then get the option to "add" (!!??) which pictures to remove. It then processes the PDF, removing those pictures, and saving the edited PDF in an output directory.

It doesnt do anything else. No text editing, no "adding" of your own pictures. Just very basic deletion of exiting embedded pictures. (I did not check all picture formats that it is comprehensive in identifying all picture formats).

Horses for Courses. It has it's uses. Stripping dark pictures out of documents before printing to save ink, for example. Or indeed, removing picture frames or branding (if in picture format) from documents.

I gave it a thumbs up, because it does what it says on the box. But it is overpriced for such a simple feature set. Build in a few more tools, such as very basic manual object deletion or editing (to deal with text boxes), resizing a document (to make it fit on an A4 or letter page), and all object embedding (to ADD your own watermark!), even if just in a default position like header top middle, or footer bottom middle

This software removes embedded images only. If watermark is part of regular text in the PDF, its impossible to remove using this. Of course, the latter feature may be considered a different kind of "editing", but then why charge 50$?

Frankly, I find the software very vague & its capabilities very vague.

Its much better to use something like the [freeware] Nitro PDF Reader to extract the text & print it using the Nitro PDF Printer.
