Ever wanted to add watermarks or just simple text to photos or screenshots on your Windows Phone 7 device before sharing them over the web? Watermark for WP7 is a free (ad-supported) tool that, as its name suggests, allows you to create and add textual watermarks to photos and/or screenshots stored on your device. The operation is simple. You choose an image from your Camera Roll or Saved Images, enter some text, customize its font, font size, color, weight and opacity, position it over the selected image as you see fit and save the result to your device.
The concept behind Watermark is quite good. The implementation, however, leaves much to be desired. The app won’t really fulfill the purpose of a watermarking tool until it incorporates the option to save watermarks. As of this writing, the app requires you to create a new watermark every time. And it isn’t exactly very flexible in usage. For instance, to position a watermark over the selected image, you have to tap away at the desired region till you get the text where you want it. The app does not allow you to drag it freely over the image. Also, color customization is limited to a meager 12 colors. A full color palette, similar to the ones found in most mobile photo editing tools, would be a welcome addition.
Plus points? A reasonably good-looking yet simple interface and a collection of 15 different fonts. Not bad for a free Windows Phone 7 tool.
