Aoao Watermark

Aoao Watermark for Photo is a photo watermark software that provides professional image protection solution when sharing photos. You don't need to worry about ZERO Image Quality Loss. It's easy to use and I think it's one of the best effective way to protect your photo's copyright and avoid from unauthorized uses. What I like most about the Aoao Watermark for Photo software is that you can batch watermark all at once. It has saved me a lot of time.

How it works with these simple steps:
  1. Prepare photo.
  2. Load your image.
  3. Edit your watermark.
  4. Process.
  5. Finish.
Screenshots below:

Tip: Just a reminder to back up original photos in a separate folder so you don't override when you save your photos using the Watermark software.

WHERE TO BUY: Aoao Watermark is available for $29.90 for the full version and can be downloaded from the Aoao Photo website at  A Free Trial version is available for you to try. The limitation is that the unregistered version of Aoao Watermark will put "DEMO" watermark on output photos.

Aoao Video to GIF Converter

I had fun with this one. Aoao Video to GIF Converter basically allows the user to convert a scene in a video clip into an animated GIF image. You can also add special effects during process. I describe it as bringing a still image/photo to "life". I've seen a lot of these with scenes from favorite television shows and movies. Check out my Tumblr account ( and see what I mean.

Here are some examples:

Life is an adventure for Maya, the clever and resourceful blonde-bobbed monkey in "Monkey Kingdom," Disneynature’s new feature film set among ancient ruins in the storied jungles of South Asia. Maya’s world is forever changed when she welcomes her son, Kip, into her complicated extended family. Like all families, Maya’s has more than its share of colourful personalities—and she’s determined to give her son a leg up in the world. When their longtime home at Castle Rock is taken over by powerful neighbouring monkeys, Maya's whole family retreats, and she uses her street smarts and ingenuity to uncover untapped resources amidst strange new creatures and unsettling surroundings. Ultimately, they will all have to work together to reclaim Castle Rock, where Maya can hopefully realize her dreams for her son’s future.
