Softmatic has announced PhotoStamp 3.0 (http://www.softmatic.com), which is now a Mac App Store exclusive. It requires Mac OS X 10.6 or higher and can be found in the Photography category. The price for an individual license has been slashed from US$29.95 to $9.99.
The app offers batch stamping, batch resizing and automatic thumbnail generation. PhotoStamp features a five-step process to batch-stamp digital photos. It stamps text, copyright signs and notices, images, Exif data, dates and more. PhotoStamp reads virtually any image format, including raw formats, and outputs watermarked images as JPEG, TIFF, PNG and more.
The “Assistant”-style concept of PhotoStamp is designed to make it easy to use. Source images are simply dragged over the drop target in the first pane of the main window. These can be individual files or complete folders.
In the second step any of the predefined watermark designs can be applied to the images. Text watermarks can contain static text but also dynamic data, like the current date or meta data like Exif information stored in the photo. Image watermarks can be company logos and the like. All watermarks can be rotated, centered on the image or snapped to one of the edges. In addition to the pre-defined marks, users can define their own watermarks. The number of watermarks per image is unlimited.
Output options like target folder, image format, jpeg quality are set in the third step. PhotoStamp can scale the images if so required to fit into given dimensions. The software can automatically create thumbnails in addition to the watermarked images.
Finally, a test run with a single photo applies all settings to the first image of the batch. If the user is happy with the result, the whole set of images can be processed.
