flash drive or other devices, and take it with you whenever you to need to create watermarks on the
breeze, without having to go through installation steps.

aPhoto sports a clean and intuitive layout that lets you import photos using the built-in browse function.
It works with GIF, PNG, BMP and JPG file format, and gives you the possibility to create watermarks by
typing in the text directly into the primary panel and inserting images.
What’s more, you can customize the text in terms of font and size, pick the text and background color,
as well as alter the RGB, saturation, and lightness values.
Other notable characteristics worth mentioning are represented by the possibility to select the watermark
position, set its transparency, choose the rotation angle, and save the edited images to JPG, PNG,
GIF, or BMP file formats.

and process them at the same time.
