    I've recently started taking some photos with a camera I just purchased, and of course looking for watermarking software.

    I was able to find a $7.00 program thru the app store, but it really looks cheap compared to the great watermarks I had using photoshop. Unfortunately I no longer have the ability to load photoshop as I had it previously on another machine.

    I am trying to see if Photoshop Element 10 would be a good, affordable option of building a really nice embossed type watermark as opposed to the cheap stamp option I'm currently using with that cheap app store program.

    Would really appreciate any advice or suggestions you may have, or thoughts about my current idea of buying Element 10.

    aperture works a treat for me.

    i'd suggest you get yourself a one piece of software setup, lightroom, aperture, elements something like that

    Yeah but you need photoshop or something to create the watermark.

    OP: take a look at gimp. It's free I believe!

    I don't know Aperture well enough, but Lightroom has watermarking. Lightroom can do about 95% of the editing most people need (Aperture as well) plus all the organizing stuff. Photoshop is overkill for most people, plus expensive.

    Lightroom also has the ability to work with plug-ins, so you can load a 3rd party watermarking plug-in that goes beyond what Lr natively does. This allows you stay within Lr but still get enhanced features. For a while I used the Mogrify plug-in in Lr.

    Hope this helps.

    Lightroom can watermark your photos when you export them for publishing/distribution.
