How to Do a Hard Refresh in Your Browser

by Lina Thorne Lina Thorne Updated · Posted in What's New In Watermarkly

To make browsing faster, browsers save copies of website data as a set of files, which is commonly known as the cache. It might have gone unnoticed by you, but when you visit a website you’ve been on before, it always loads quicker than it did during your first visit. This happens because your browser stores a copy of the website in its cache. As you can imagine, this is useful for speeding up the loading process, but unfortunately, it can sometimes prevent you from seeing the updated version of the page.

For example, when we fix a bug in Watermarkly, we roll out a new version of the app. But you won’t be able to use it right away. You’ll have to wait for about 24 hours for the update to get stored in your cache. Fortunately, there is an alternative, if you want to try out the new version now. You will need to do a hard refresh.

A hard refresh clears your cache for a specific webpage, not for an entire website. This way, your browser is forced to throw away the outdated version and load the most recent one. Don’t worry! Performing a hard refresh isn’t difficult and takes less than a minute.

Here are the instructions on how to do a hard refresh in the most popular browsers.

How to Open the Developer Console in Your Browser

by Lina Thorne Lina Thorne Updated · Posted in What's New In Watermarkly

An array of different things may lead to Watermarkly not working properly, and figuring out which one is the source of the issue in your case can be challenging. The variety of browsers and a ton of available plugins make this task even more difficult. The developer console in your browser can be of great help to us to determine what exactly is causing the problem, so we can then fix it. It logs all the information about the backend operations of our app. This information is a real lifesaver when it comes to troubleshooting.

If you are experiencing a problem with Watermarkly and have already contacted our support, you may be asked to send a screenshot of your Console in the Developer Tools. Here is how you can open it.

Rotate Watermark And Use One Of 10 Previously Used templates

by Lina Thorne Lina Thorne Updated · Posted in What's New In Watermarkly

We are pleased to announce the latest updates of Watermarkly.

Firstly, the editing toolkit has got a new feature: it is now possible to rotate your watermark to a desired angle. The “Rotation” scroll bar can be found under “Opacity”. It works for both logo and text. Click on your watermark to open the editing toolkit and find the “Rotation” scroll bar. Drag the slider handle with your cursor to rotate your watermark to a desired angle. The design of the scroll bars has slightly changed as well, so now you can see the percentage of opacity level and the exact angle of rotation on the right side.

The second new feature is a list of 10 previously used watermark templates. It appears when all the current elements are deleted. When you start Watermarkly, you usually see the last watermark templates that you used. You will need to remove them first, in order to open the list.

Fortunately, we’ve also added a new “Remove watermark” button. It sits next to “Add logo” button. If you have two or more watermarks on your image and none of them are selected, you will remove all of them by clicking on “Remove watermark”. However, if one of templates is selected, the “Remove watermark” button will change to “Remove text” or “Remove logo”, depending on the type of selected watermark. By clicking on the same button now, you will only remove the selected element.

Once all the elements are deleted, you will see the list of the previously used templates. It will also appear if there aren’t any elements on the image at all. A template is automatically added to the list when you click on “Watermark Images”. The older templates that you haven’t used in a while will appear further down the list, while the very last used template will be on the top.

Multi-line Text

by Lina Thorne Lina Thorne Updated · Posted in What's New In Watermarkly

Hello! Watermarkly has a new feature - multi-line text!

Now, you can create multi-line text, align it left/right or make it center and set the amount of space between words.

Creating a multi-line text is very simple. Firstly, import your images in Watermarkly and select “Add Text”. Click inside the text bar and type in your text. For example, Karen Page. Write “Karen”, then press “Enter” to start a new line and type in “Page”. If you have already written “Karen Page “ in one line, you can click on the space between Karen and Page with your mouse and then press “Enter” to separate these two words. All done is done! It is possible to create three or more lines, if you want. Once you create a multi-line text, you will be able to align it left, right or make it center by selecting one of the Alignment buttons. You can bring the words closer together or further apart by adjusting the Line Height.

New Watermarkly's Feature - Background Removal

by Lina Thorne Lina Thorne Updated · Posted in What's New In Watermarkly

Hello! We would like to tell you about Watermarkly’s two new updates.

The feature of background removal from black and white uploaded logos had been significantly improved. Let’s say, you have a digital version of your signature. The signature itself is black and the background is white. You want to add this signature to your photos as a watermark, so you uploaded it into Watermarkly by clicking “Add Logo” and then choosing “From my computer”. Then, in order to remove the white background you have to click on “Remove Background”. Voilà! The background is gone and now you are left with only your signature as if you had signed this photo with your own hand. Along with having improved this feature, we also added the ability to choose the color for your uploaded signature or any other uploaded logo. It is easier now to make your uploaded logo match the rest of the photo color-wise.
