  2. Adding text and graphic watermarks. Watermark settings.
  3. Configuring templates and options related to saving final processed files.
  4. Previewing files added for processing, the central thumbnail will also be present in the main working area (5).
  5. Main working area – here you can view what the final watermark on the image will look like, move the watermark (by clicking and holding down the left mouse button). Before you select files, you can see a brief guide in this part of the program.
