Cool free photo software

This post is a carry on from my previous post organising photographs. If you’re like me I can snap away at random objects, landscapes, buildings, any excuse really.

An example of this can be seen below taken on my way to work. Sunrise down at Leith Docks in Edinburgh.

This photo isn’t the original as you can tell from the quality but it highlights that it’s moments like this you’re glad mobile phone technology has advanced over the years.

Over time I have built up an arsenal of software I use to help process images.

TSR Watermark Image

If you’re going to be posting your pictures on your website, blog or flickr then adding a watermark to them can help prevent people steeling them or claiming credit for it.  TSR Watermark allows you to add text or graphics to a single image or a batch. This and more can be done from a simple interface.
