You might have noticed that my old website pmnet.info has been closed since a month now. And that you will get redirected to a new website called pmlabs-apps.com. This is because of the release of bulkWaterMark – the successor of the app you visited pmnet.info for: waterMark V2.
So the new waterMark V3 is a commercial software now. But why are you selling the new version? PMlabs waterMark V1 and V2 were one of the few freeware solutions to solve the photo protection problem that really worked without a shareware trap. Especially V2 was a success for me since the app was downloaded 200,000 times on my private website alone without counting the downloads on other websites and download directories. It was distributed as donationware to run the website, keep me motivated for bugfixes or new features and – of course – make some beer money. But: Donationware did not work – at least not for me.
So, I took it serious with the new version and released it as a freemium software. The software is now much more professional, functional and robust. It is built on a modular framework, allows extension via plug-ins and has an improved user experience. It is simply the best PMlabs waterMark ever released. But it’s not completely free anymore.
The deal is simple: If you want a better, improved waterMark V2 with a smoother and more modern user interface for free, you can decide for a freeware version that comes with a nag screen before stamping your photos with watermarks. bulkWaterMark Free is clearly better than V2, has the new image processing core and comes with full expression support.
If you want to show love for our work – our, because I’m not the only one working on it anymore – you can grab bulkWaterMark Basic for $ 9. It removes the nag and is the right choice for individuals that just need the basic feature set.
The full package with all the new fancy stuff like Photoshop-esque blending effects, tile watermarks, layer groups and proportional layer resizing comes with the Pro and Business editions priced at $ 29 and $ 39, whereat they have both the same features, but the Pro version is targeted for individual photographs and the Business edition for companies.
Finally, I hope you like the latest version of our waterMark. If you are interested in buying a Basic, Pro or Business license of bulkWaterMark, here a coupon to get a -15% discount off the app: PMNETBLOG. Enter the coupon code when checking out, it is valid until the end of January 2016.
And: PMlabs bulkWaterMark 1.0 is just the first step. We have a lot more ideas for the future. There will be a free PlugIn software development kit for bulkWaterMark in early 2016. This blog for example will feature tutorials and articles to showcase what bulkWaterMark can do your you.
