What is a watermark?
Watermarks allow a photographer, company or artist in general to place a distinction in the image so that it is known who the authorship is. You can place it on the image either in letters or with some kind of logo.

Why use a watermark?

For Community Managers and for anyone who works in social networks, watermarks are very effective to promote brands or websites, since when they see the logo, people will go to the site where they come from. You can even put a watermark on videos.
