PicMarkr Pro: The First Announce

Good news for our users:
We’re developing Windows version of our service called PicMarkr Pro. I hope it will be ready in the early of April May, 2008.
Pre-order available, see below for details.

This software will help you to protect your photos and images with custom watermark the most convenient way.
You can use this software to:

  • Watermark you existing Flickr photos
  • Backup you Flickr photos (yes, you’ll be able to select and download any number of photos)
  • Watermark your new photos and upload them to Flickr

The idea behind is very simply and consists of three easy steps:

  1. Import images
  2. Add watermark
  3. Save your watermarked photos or upload them to Flickr.

And in PicMarkr Pro there’re some additional features:

  • Applying watermark to unlimited number of photos in a batch mode
  • Ability to make your own presets or to change existing preset settings (opacity, font, background etc)
  • Number of professional-look watermark presets
  • Replacement of watermarked images on Flickr.
    PicMarkr Pro will preserve image title, description and comments.

PicMarkr Pro will be distributed as a shareware product for $21.99 USD.
You can pre-order this application with a discount for only $14.90 USD.

12 Must Have Flickr Scripts. Part 1.

I’ve found a nice and easy way to make Flickr presence better.
I talk about user generated scripts for improving Flickr features.

For using these scripts you must install Gracemonkey – a small (just 100kb) but very useful extension for Firefox.
It allows you to customize the way a webpage displays using small bits of JavaScript.

So, lets get on and add some features to our Flickr account.

  1. Flickr Photo Page Enhancer (install script)
    Adds links to different sizes directly to a Flickr photo page, generates html code to easily copy-paste thumbnail & description, and automatically loads your 20 most used tags when you click “Add Tag.”
  2. Flickr – Multi Group Sender (install script)
    This script enables you to easily send your Flickr images to multiple groups at the same time. It works by overriding the normal “Send To Group” button on your flickr photo page.
  3. Flickr Photostream Graphr (install script)
    Display a graph of how often your photostream has been viewed.
  4. Flickr Rich Edit (install script)
    Adds a simple rich edit interface (Bold, Italic, Blockquote, Link) input textarea in Flickr where you can use HTML.
  5. Flickr Groups Organizer (install script)
    This script lets you tag/categorise your groups and also easily quit groups from your groups list page.
  6. Flickr Titles And Descriptions Batch Tools (install script)
    It adds various tools for editing titles and descriptions in the organizer. Including search and replace text in titles and descriptions, append text to titles/descriptions, Copy description, title or tags from first image to all images in batch.

Why To Add Watermark

Many people aren’t happy at looking into watermarked pics.
And personally I think visible watermark is and always will be not the best idea. Photos or images don’t become better and sometimes watermark is awful or just boring.
So why do we build a service that lets you to add watermark?

Well take a look at this story:
http://flickr.com/photos/rebba/2243426607/

Someone decided to make a profit out of vicarious work
and uploaded photos to stock image website.
It is awful.

So if you make good shots and if you’re a good photographer – be careful.
You would never know if your photos will be illegaly selling somewhere.

The good solution is to use any of available watermarknig tools.
There’re a lot of software for Windows and Mac – the most of them are shareware.

And there is PicMarkr – a free online watermarking tool.
