[prMac.com] Ghent, Belgium - Blue Crowbar Software today announced Impression 1.0 for Aperture, a watermark plugin for Aperture, Apple's professional photo management application. Impression provides a flexible way to add a visual watermark to your photos from within Aperture. With a watermark, you can add a company logo, a signature or a copyright statement to the photos that you're publishing on the internet or to other media. Impression's intuitive user interface is both powerful and makes it fun to use.
"Impression adds a new dimension to watermarking in Aperture." said Steven Vandeweghe, founder of Blue Crowbar Software. "It is based on the concept of importing your watermarked photos in Aperture instead of exporting them. This shows you what the final image will look like before you export it and makes it much easier to manage all of your photos within Aperture's library."
* Adds high-quality visual watermarks to your photos.
* The watermarked photos are automatically imported in Aperture as high-quality copies of the original RAW images.
* EXIF data from the original photos is preserved.
* Multiple photos can be watermarked with one click.
* Existing PSD (Photoshop) or PNG images can be used as watermarks.
* Text watermarks can also be created from an RTF text file.
* The Impression plugin can place watermarks horizontally and vertically.
* Controls are available for adjusting the transparency, position and margin.
* Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) or later
* Aperture 2.1
