Maintain or add metadata following IPTC or Adobe’s XMP format. Rename, resize, filter and create thumbnails. Easily select one of your own or one of many common watermarks from a menu and watermark 1 or thousands of photos at a time. Batch processing with iWatermark Pro is fast because it uses parallel processing to take advantage of multiple cpu’s and/or gpu’s. Import/export and share watermarks with colleagues, family or friends.
