Placing watermarks on photos at desired place with uMark
Placing watermarks on photos with uMark is very simple. uMark lets you place watermarks in two ways - one of the 9 pre-defined positions or a fixed/custom position. You can also drag a watermark and put it where you want. When you drag a watermark, it puts it at a fixed position.

Custom position will place the watermark at fixed X, Y coordinates regardless of the size of the image being watermarked. If you want your watermark to appear at a fixed spot on all photo regardless of the size or orientation of the photos then you can use the custom position.

Here is the example of a watermark placed at custom position in two different sized photos.


The pre-defined positions will place the watermark at relatively same spot on the image regardless of the size or orientation of the image.

Here is the example of a watermark placed at pre-defined position in two different sized photos.


With the custom position, since the watermark appears at the same place in each photo, if the photo being watermarked is larger or smaller, the watermark may go off the mark. On smaller images it may even go beyond the bounds of the image and may not show up at all.

If you use the predefined positioning and further adjust the placement using padding values, you will get the watermark at intended place in both the images. After choosing one of the 9 predefined positions, you can further move the watermark from the chosen edges using the padding values.
