#59, KinkStar: if you still need to uninstall this program, Revo Uninstaller will do the job: http://www.revouninstaller.com/.

Good luck!

Any way I can get a reply back on this now? I'm number 46 above and still need help removing this program that didn't install correctly.

I installed the software but when I want to create the watermark over my photo... no "start" button under the options tab, please advise. Thank you.

#43 Mr Road Rage: Do you have the link to the copyright infringement site? I am developing my own photography site so am very interested.

Installed fine on XP SP2. Works well. Agree with comments about doing only one at a time. But this will make me examine each photo and put logo in best place for that particular photo.

I found this a breeze to use, watermark was editable and original picture file is preserved.... thanks for adding to GOTD

I have just installed uMark Pro and it didn't work on my windows Vista Business version of Windows Vista. The imaging software is a piece of junk instead and not useful in any imaging way of imaging tools. It's also very slow on my Intel Core 2 Duo 3.6GHZ which is fast for other imaging programs such as Cyberlink Power Producer and JVC Digital Imaging.

No problems with install on XP3. It looks simple, easy to use. I want it exactly for what it does, batch watermark, nothing else. I keep this one. I sent some people over to get it. Useful.
thank you GAOTD and uconomix!

Reply   |   Comment by Esmeralda  –  7 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

I was wondering if I can create a watermark like the one that webshots uses (if one has seen the 'webshots' watermark on the desktop, one would know exactly what I am talking about). I have tried, just out of curiosity, using a few free and paid applications but haven't succeeded in creating a transparent, yet visible (only the outline of letters are visible, I guess) watermark.

Can anyone throw some light on this? And can umark do this?

Reply   |   Comment by sriadverts  –  7 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

I am going to keep it. I am going to need it for some of the bulk image watermarking.

Reply   |   Comment by digish  –  7 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

It looks like the fast watermark can process only one image at a time. And watermark lite, the site looks a bit, over populated, gives a spam feeling. The difficulty that I faced with Umark is, I cannot select a folder and say add, instead I have to click on the image inside the folder and give ctrl+A(select all), which is one step more. It would HAVE BEEN NICE, if they could get rid of this one step.

Rest it is a cute, featured program.

A very nice program and one I have been looking for.
Thanks a lot for bringing this to us.
Loaded just fine and no issues using it.

Does not work 4 me. Tried opening it 5 times and I just get the message that uMark Proessional has encoutered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvienece. If you were in the middle of something, the information you were working on might be lost.
--EACH time!!! Of course something might have gone wrong w/the download. So I went the route of uninstalling/re-installing --for naught =same results. Common OS (XP 32 sp2)So I don't think that that's it. Needs work.
That's not too impressive, I would have hated to pay for this type of quality. Needs work.

Downloaded to install on my laptop with Vista, but something didn't go right. So then I tried to uninstall it and that won't work either. This is the message:

The installer has encountered an unexspected error installing this package. This may indicate a problem with thisj package. The error code is 2869.

Then another message: fatal error during installation

Can someone please help?

I've just seen #28. Unfortunately, it didn't help me. However I put my settings, no buttons appeared.

This is a very bad advert for this company.

This is totally insane. I don't get the "Start" button or the "Next" button or anything. I am extremely frustrated. I'm on Vista and I installed as an Administrator.

I'm afraid I'm going to have to give this one up as a bad job, the first ever GAOTD product I've tried and had top discard.

#11 - It's too bad you don't understand copyright laws. Taking a copyright off a picture doesn't render the copyright invalid, and people cannot use any image they find, even if a copyright isn't put on the picture. Technically, any image I create or photo I take is automatically copyrighted...please read on.

If you don't believe me, let me offer you a link to a site where you promise to use the image I tell you to use, and see how quickly you are notified and see how much money you will have to pay this lady for using her image. The more people fight her, the higher the price goes, and she is serious. She pays to have her images created professionally and those who steal it and use it pay the price, as she got tired of people using/stealing her images. AND...every image is tracable on the web.

Lots of people are setting up images like this and going after people, in other words, they are making a business out of copyright infringement. It is now big business on the web. Be careful what picture you use.

I am part of a professional group on the web, and we had a presentation regarding the internet and image copyright laws. The basic rule of thumb is... if you didn't create the image, or if you weren't the person to take the picture, ...if you don't have permission to use the image, don't use it. The fees are running in the thousands of dollars. And yes, we had an attorney present who was giving us the lowdown. Be careful, be very careful.

Useful software for putting your (nick)name on pictures you upload to the web.

Same version as that given away in January.
I still have the previous giveaway installed, so no download today.

I d/l this back in Jan when it was offered, and I have thoroughly enjoyed the program - very useful when designing products with pics / images / logos for potential customers, such as custom business cards, and you don't want your work stolen.

hello folks, going on what ashraf said this sounds exactly like what i need for some of my work, and yes there are blind photographers out here, not a ton of us, but a growing number, it will be tough to use but it sounds like if i pay at tension to the what is going to be in the default position, it will be usable for me. and i can get assistance if i think i really need to. now as to a couple comments i read out here:
number 10, Monique, sorry gal but you need to upgrade to the modern world, there will come a time when you won't be able to get anything that doesn't require the .net frameworks if your going to stick to windows operating systems, period end of quote. sorry but its the truth, I dislike a lot of new things myself, I'm still on XP since there are many things in vista that i find totally objectionable, but windows 7 seems to be addressing these, and i am looking forward to it. #11, slim jim, dude, one in the real legal world, your going to wind up in a ton of trouble if you do take someone else's picture/logo/other intellectual property like your talking about, you may "feel" free to be able to take things, but as far as real world law is concerned, your a thief if you do, and can be tried/sued if you do, and i am just nasty enough when ticked off to do so! and will if i ever catch someone taking and using one of my items without my explicit )as in written, or witnessed verbal agreement!)

* a save to same directory option or be able to type the location i want to save in.. using click folders to browse is a bit time consuming.

All my images are on this machine, though.

To supplement Fubar's comment (#13): You can read BladedThoth's comments here: http://www.bladedthoth.com/reviews/15mrs/umark-professional-v1-3, and Swan's here: http://swan-reviews-almost-everything.blogspot.com/2007/08/umark-professional-13.html.

This is the third time the same version of uMark Professional, 1.3, has been offered by GotD. Each time I've clicked on 'Help' and then 'Check Latest Version' on the 8/31/07 (original) offer, it states "no updates available."

It installed and activated without any issue in Windows Vista Ultimate X64. That's always a good sign right off the bat. So thumbs up from me.

To the Publisher, higher desktop setting a problem.... This program seems to works nicely.. all except when I try to push the "start" button to make the watermark and save it. The Start Button is not there on the options page??? I am running 1920x1200 resolution with a larger font setting of 120dpi, (125%larger) on a 24" Wide screen Monitor. So I lowered the screen resolution down to 1024x768 with normal font size, (96dpi) and the "Start" button now appears, yeah. Going back up to 1920x1200 but retaining the "normal 96dpi" font size, the "Start" button is still there, great! Once the Font DPI is set back up to 120dpi, the "start" button is now gone again. So there seems to be an issue with the program not handling larger font sizes. Not very professional IMO, To use the program I would need to re-size my desktop every time I ran UMark pro, unacceptable. So if you are running a higher resolution with bigger fonts to compensate, you may find this glitch also,... uninstall time.

I got an error during the installation when I ran setup.exe first on my Vista 32-bit. So ran Activate.exe first, and then Setup, and it went through. I tried it quickly and the software appears to be super useful, since I add copyright marks to every pic I upload to flickr. Thanks.

Only handles image types BMP, JPG, GIF, PNG, and TIFF - ok for most. Would be nice if it could handle some of the raw formats also for simple, quick batch watermarking avoiding he need to run through Photoshop.

Trying to install on Vista 64 and keep getting this message:

Unable to locate application file 'Setup.msi'.

See the setup log file located at 'C:\Users\DICHRO~1\AppData\Local\Temp\VSD9277.tmp\install.log' for more information.

So, I installed the setup.msi file and tried again. Still get the
same message. Karen

I still have this one and it works just fine. I hate it when someone puts a watermark in the middle of their picture. Ruins the pix, just don't. Next giveaway will be "inpaint", it removes watermarks, love it.
Thanx GOTD and 'comments'

Installs and activates fine on Vista SP2 32 bit, but fails to start. Had to manually uninstall the software as the built in uninstaller failed.

This may be a SP2 issue. I am finding a lot of software failing to initialize since it's install.

Actually, #1, uMark Professional 1.3 was given away at least as far back as August 31, 2007, where it was reviewed by BladedThoth and Swan. Everyone should always check the link at the top of every giveaway to previous offerings by the developer.

I have used this software since gotd released it the first time. I like it and use it often.

Another free programme for watermarking is FastStone Image resizer. There is also an image viewer. Works well on both Vista and XP.

uMark is slightly faster than FS.
