The best possible text watermark combination
What is the best possible color combination for a text watermark? Something that is visible yet unobtrusive on any photo?

It's white text with black shadow and 50% transparency. That is the default text watermark setting in uMark and the one we recommend.

Let's see a few examples.

This same text is equally visible on an photo with bright backgrounds as well.

You can play with different fonts and sizes. Serif fonts like Times New Roman or handwriting and calligraphy fonts look great with this style.

Such a watermark looks professional, serves the purpose of protecting the photo and establishing the ownership and at the same time doesn't compromise the visual aspect of the underlying image.
