The Mac of the 21st century is a photo management and development powerhouse. Even iPhoto can do wonders for photo enhancement, and easily manages photos by the tens of thousands. If you work with photos in stacks of a few dozen, hundreds, or thousands, and bulk resizing, optimizing, and watermarks are a requirement, try PhotoBulk.
Part of my day job involves photo management for a large number of websites, so it’s important to be efficient when optimizing by the dozens, resizing thumbnails by the dozens to hundreds, and making sure a watermark gets placed at the same time.
BUdget-minded Mac users can choose from a few dozen watermarking apps, a few dozen bulk resize and optimizing apps, but few do all that as easily as PhotoBulk for just a few dollars.
How does it work? Drag and drop.
Select the text or image you want to use as the watermark (including font and size). Then select the location on the photo.
While the optimization window uses a slider for ease of use, a numerical or percentage of compression would be an improvement.
PhotBulk optimizes JPEG and PNG images, and supports GIF, BMP, and TIFF images. There’s also a built-in preview function so you can see the photo before optimizing or adding the watermark.
Considering the price, which is low, PhotoBulk could use a few additional features, and one in particular would make it a must-have photo app. Bulk renaming. There are plenty of renaming apps for Mac users, but renaming is particularly useful while resizing, optimizing, and adding a watermark.
