Watermark Your Photos with New App

Photojournalist John McHugh has launched Marksta, a photo app for the iPhone that allows users to add watermarks to their photos before sharing their work through social media. Through text-editing tools, users can copyright their images and add Twitter website addresses. Marksta contains editing features photographers will recognize, such as the ability to create layers and templates, as well as the option to add a border and adjust its size and color. Within each layer you create, you can add drop shadows or reposition the watermark by tapping the effects key.
