If you’ve taken the image from your Android device, you can quickly add a watermark by using a third-party app. You don’t have to use complicated software to protect the image you waited so long to take.

Frequently Asked Questions
Where should I put the watermark on my photos?
Consider adding the watermark where it protects the image without taking away the purpose of your content. So, you shouldn’t place it too far off to the side, as others could simply crop it, but you also can’t put it over the photo’s primary subject. Accordingly, try adjusting the opacity of your watermark to achieve both.
