Hi there,

 

I'm looking for watermark software that's free for both pics & video.S

 

Something that's virus free of course.

 

Thank you

You can add watermarks to image easily with GIMP, start with the main image open in GIMP, copy in the watermark image, give the watermark image some transparency, position it in palce, then save the whole thing out as a jpg or png, watermarking done. For videos it's tricker, to add a watermark you need to go through the same sort of processes and software which is reauired for any compositing or greenscreen like task. You could do this with blender, but it would be a very tricky way to do it, blender can do video editing but it's main function is 3d modelling and animation. Another program which might be able to do video editing of the form which involves adding a watermark is wax 2.0, it might not even exist any more but back in 2012 I used it for greenscreen, layering and compositing effects. GIMP, blender are free, wax 2.0 is probably still free if it exists any more, it was free back in 2012.
Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.

Oh, sounds VERY complicated :(

 

While I'm tech savy, when it comes to graphic software, I'm lost.

 

Thanks though, I may have to get someone to do the video for me.

 

Have a lovely day.

Using GIMP for this in images isn't particularly hard, look for a tutorial on google "adding watermarks in GIMP", there will be some. For videos watermarking is tougher, because videos are always tougher to edit than images.

Do these also remove the GPS info?

Getting rid of GPS info is easy, you just use some of the options within windows' file explorer. GPS geotags are part of the metadata on images which have them, you just erase all the metadata to remove geotagging information. If you right click on an image in the file explorer then go to "properties" then the "details" tab, then click "remove properties and personal information" to wipe out all the metadata (things like location, type of camera, camera settings, tags, author name...).

If on the other hand you are asking that from the perspective of wanting the metadata to survive the watermarking process I would expect it usually wouldn't, I don't think (though cannot be absolutely sure) that metadata like locations would still be on the photo after editing in gimp and saving as another file.

Lightworks, a free, and full featured video editing software is available at the link below.

I am not sure about it's ability to add watermarks, but you could search for a tutorial.

PS.

I did a search myself, and found a video on how to add a watermark at the links below.

Actually I never did find one that worked for me as most had NO reviews if you can believe that, or they had malware in them.

 

I now have to find a video software to record videos, so I'll have to revisit the links above, but my website coder told me about this one - Fast Stone, & while it's not fancy, it does what I need it to do & in bulk. :)

 

Thanks everyone
