Downloaded the program, Installed it, No Problems, Watermarked 1 photo, No problem. Did not have to go into Safe mode at all.

I just installed this and activated ok... tried it on a 1049 x 870 and with default settings the program resized the image plus watermarks down to 500 x 545
To me that is just plain wrong to resize by default to some arbitary value set by a watermark itself!

Before the first watermarking is performed the link "Open folder with watermarked images" on top right of the window fails with an error alert that the file does not exist and until you get the very final stage you cannot see what that folder is intended to be and on doing the watermark it asks the folder does not exist do you want to create it Y/N? Really the installer should create the default folder in the first place and not leave it to the programs attempt to write to a non-existant folder to throw up the error question!

Installed just fine in SAFE MODE W/ NETWORKING, which has been necessary for more than half the giveaways for the last few months. (I wish we knew why this has started to be a problem.) Anyway, it's a nice program, and I thank GAOTD and ByteScout for it. To anyone having problems getting it to install, just try restarting your computer in "Safe Mode With Networking," and that should solve your problem.

Downloaded, Installed & Registered on a Windows 10 desktop without any problems.
I pulled up the one photo that I was interested in Watermarking.
The program worked GREAT! Just what I wanted and needed.
Thanks GAOTD!

To TK (#2), I'm guessing that the "automated GIF and TIFF" support was supposed to say "animated GIF and TIFF" support. Having animated GIF support is actually quite nice, as until now I needed to use something to convert my animated GIFs into a sequence of original images, watermark those, then reassemble them. I'm sure other products also have the capability to watermark animated GIFs, but until now, none that I owned :)

SB, there is a reply option on comments... why group animated GIF with TIFF image format, one does not have animated TIFFs... I guess the vendor is not participating in the giveaway so we have to guess and assume what they mean or just shrug and hope they program better than they comunicate!

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

TK, I completely agree. It's just that a lot of times website descriptions don't necessarily exhibit the most accurate grammar, spelling, and syntax (I'm not being too critical, as many times the companies aren't necessarily based in English speaking countries, and any translations to English are better than I could do to their language!). I personally would not have grouped the GIF and TIFF features together (as you point out, there is no such thing as an animated TIFF), but on their website those two features are listed close together and they do say "animated GIF" as opposed to "automated GIF" anywhere, so that's what my assumption was based on.

TK,
>one does not have animated TIFFs
TIFF files can contain multiple images, each one unique images. I see this often when multi-page documents are converted to a TIFF file. Therefore, it seems reasonable that a product could "automate" the process of watermarking each one, the same as they could "automate" the process of watermarking each image in an animated GIF. I do believe their use of "automate" is correct. Like SB says, I agree this would be a nice feature for GIF files, and the same goes for TIFF files.

Gary, yes TIFF files can contain multiple images and GIF's can contain multiple frames but the statement does not specify what they mean If they meant that surely they would have said "automate the watermarking of animated GIF and multi-image TIFF files" As they wouldn't automate the watermarking of the single image GIF or TIFF files only the preselected watermarking on the subsiquent GIF/TIFF sub-images.
Has anyone got this working and seen if it in fact does "automate" the watermarking of animated/multi-image GIF/TIFF files respectively or do we all continue to guess and hypothesise what they are trying to say?

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

TK, I have verified that it does properly handle animated GIFs (meaning it does all frames with the same watermark). I have not tried multi-image TIFFs. Consequently I still wonder whether the choice of the word "automated" is what was intended, but per Gary's comments, I can understand they may be implying they are automating the process of watermarking individual frames of a multi-frame image (be it GIF, or TIFF, the latter being something I wasn't aware of - thanks Gary!).

TK,
Your choice of words would have been much better; too bad they didn't have you write their ad copy. I believe they just didn't realize their shortened version was lacking. It does "automate" multi-image TIFFs.

Here's another page on the dev's site that gives a little more info on Watermarking Pro:

bytescout[.]com/products/enduser/watermarking/watermarkingpro

Google applied their tech wizardry to watermarks, making the news recently, with related articles & blogs appearing all over the place. The technique they explored analyzed multiple images with the same watermark, determined exactly what the watermark was, & removed it.

Is anyone actually using Google's method? I Googled on "is anyone using google method to remove watermarks" [w/out quotes], & didn't come up with any reports in the first few pages, though I'd imagine that someone(s) investing in that amount of work to do something that's possibly illegal might well try to keep their work secret. There's software to automatically scour the web, Facebook etc., gathering images to [re]use, and at least one big company has been known to use pics without permission or licensing for advertising.

At any rate, the stock photo company Shutterstock thought the threat real enough that they took Google's recommendation, altering each watermark to avoid consistency. Maybe we'll see that sort of thing -- slightly altering each watermark -- start to appear in Watermarking software like today's GOTD, Watermarking Pro?

Installed on Windows 7 Home 64 bit without a hitch. Simple to use. Price is a bit steep for what it does.

Had a look at the programs homepage as well as read the description above but still non the wiser on what "you get automated GIF and TIFF support " means? It can't be boasting about a lack of manual controls to choose what method of generation of the 256 colour palette is... as it's a watermarking program not an image converter so should not be generating a new colour palette and who would boast it had LESS than optimal features!
What would be impressive is if it losslessly coppied across JPEG data from areas of the picture that were unmodified and only recompresses the watermarked JPEG cells to reduce the overall image quality loss due to JPEG recompression but I see no trace of that in the descriptions.

Downloaded OK. Unzipped files. Clicked on setup.exe but produced windows error (exact error not given) except ByteScout Watermarking Pro (FULL) has stopped working. Program then terminates when clicking OK. Not impressed. What use is a giveaway if it will not install. This is on Windows 7 Pro 64-bit. Comments and correct installation file required from software producers.
