Watermark option

Post by cday » Thu Jul 18, 2019 7:11 am

In XnView MP the watermark function is located in Image > Draw... although watermarking is not really a 'draw' operation.

Wouldn't it be better as in XnView Classic as Image > Add watermark... ?

Yes, and that is entirely appropriate... :D

But in the XnView Classic editor, the watermark function is on the Image menu, consistent with other related editing options: that seems like the natural place to look for it.

However in the XnView MP editor, the watermark function is on the fairly recently added Image > Draw... tool, which seems a less intuitive place to look for it as watermarking is not really a drawing function.

So both for consistency with XnView Classic, and because the menu seems a more intuitive place to look, I suggested the watermark function be added to the Image menu, although it could also be duplicated on the Draw tool as it is already there... :wink:

But Photoshop isn't free, many users are very happy to use Pierre's freeware! :D

There is many free image editors)
Krita, gimp, etc
And great editors much cheaper than photoshop AffinityPhoto, PaintTool SAI
I think image viewer should be light and fast loading and don't need much tools like filters from photoshop what still not working =)
