The Watermark-Text filter adds a text copyright notice either as a simple text, or as dynamic text (read sequentially from a text file).

The settings associated with this filter allow you to place your text in one of the nine predefined positions of the photo. If these predefined positions are not sufficient and you would like an even more exact placement of your text then you can shift it horizontally (on the X axis) or vertically (on the Y axis) relative to its initial predefined position. The Delta X and Delta Y values are specified in pixels in order to permit an accurate positioning of the stamp on all resulting photos.

Regarding the content of your text, a set of predefined keywords is available. If BatchPhoto recognizes a keyword in your text it will automatically replace that keyword with a specific value corresponding to each photo that will be processed.

Text color, transparency, size, font and aspect (Bold, Italic, Underline) can also easily be adjusted to your needs.



Type your copyright notice into the Text edit-box. You can also add different keywords to your comment by pressing the Add Keyword button

The option Add text sequentially from a text file enables you to add text dynamically to your images. The text will be read sequentially from a text file you provide (a simple .txt file). The first text row (from the text file) will be applied to the first image, the second text row will be applied to the second image, and so on until the images are over. If text file is over before the images, it will start again from the first row.

To change the text's position in the resulting photo select the desired placement from the Placement combo-box

To change the text's position offset (in pixels) on the X (horizontal) and Y (vertical) axis use the Delta X and Delta Y edit-boxes

To change the text's rotation angle use the Rotation edit-box

Note that you can also easily adjust the position and rotation of the watermark in the photo by using drag & drop

To change the text's font, size and aspect (Bold, Italic, Underline) press the Type button located in the Font section

To change the text's color, press Color button and select the desired color from the Color dialog

To change the text's transparency select the desired level from the Alpha combo-box

The default settings can be restored by pressing the Reset button
