What is a Watermark?
We all see watermarks on music albums, books, on the images on the Internet, on the currency, bank notes, etc.
So, it’s quite natural to wonder what is a watermark? A watermark is a symbol embedded in an object to identity its ownership or its authenticity.
A digital watermark is a marker or a signal inserted into a digital file:
These watermarks usually provide copyright information of the file. For example, a watermark for photos is a logo, text, or pattern that is placed over the picture.

A digital watermark can be in a form of a visible or invisible marker.
- The visible watermark is easy to spot as it is added on top of the image, video, etc. The watermark usually contains information about the ownership of the object (name of the author, website, etc.)
- The invisible watermark is a covert signal embedded in the data. The main purpose is to identity the ownership of the object in the event of a theft.

- Add watermark to prevent any unauthorized use of your photos – add watermark to photos, that way it will be more difficult (but not impossible) for the original image to be copied or used without your written permission. You will discourage theft of the watermarked material.
- Add watermark to promote your brand or company – photographers or a graphic design artists will choose to use a watermark or a signature to promote their name or brand. The images are shared around the internet and by adding a watermark, the viewers will identify their photos and brand more easily. A watermark might be the way you choose to sign your art in an elegant way.
