Photographers and designers merely create. It’s up to the consumer to enjoy what these creators have prepared for them. Now, there comes a time when people would rather steal images than purchase them rightly. There’s also the moment the creator realizes he’d much rather have his name on what he’s made so that the world knows. This is why artists sign their work and photographers and designers add copyrights and watermarks to things. Doing so in iPhoto isn’t possible (though you could download Picasa for free). What you really need, though, is a dedicated app.
Watermarker, developed by Reactiv Code, is a nice-looking solution. It’s simple, has all the features you need, and doesn’t cost nearly as much as Digimarc. Sounds promising, right? Let’s find out if it really is that good.
Thanks to everyone who took part in this giveaway, and special thanks to the kind people at Camtasia! I’m excited to let you know that the winners have now been chosen. Congratulations are in order to:
Well done to the lucky winner, we’ll be in touch soon. Sorry to those who missed out, be sure to check back for more great competitions!

We recently reviewed Camtasia for Mac and I’m pleased to announce that we have one copy to give away!
I gave it a strong 9/10 in my review and had this to say:
Camtasia for Mac is an excellent application that allows you to make professional screencasts with relative ease. The selection of effects and processes is good, while the options for recording cover every possible need.

These days, it seems like people want to share just about every little detail of their life with others online. In a world where few brunches go un-instagramed and few complaints about the DMV go un-tweeted, its nice to see personal journaling experiencing something of a resurgence.
I’ve kept a paper journal for about ten years, and while it will always store entries about the more important events of my life, I recently started keeping a daily digital journal for recording the less momentous ones. I’ve spent a few days playing around with Memories from Juicy Cocktail. Can it handle my digital journalling needs?
It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of resource management sims. I like buying cows with just the wheat I can grow in my flash-based farm and building entire cities out of the wood my tiny computer minions chop themselves. And boy, do I like Christmas. Put the two together, and I’m sold.
That’s how construction management simulation Trade Nations: North Pole found its way onto my computer. Not only do I get to build Santa’s home town, but since developer Z2Live has teamed with Child’s Play, I can also help out a good cause. There’s nothing like doing a good deed at the holidays, and hopefully the gameplay of Trade Nations: North Pole will leave you feeling just as warm inside.
With Christmas just next week, developers are starting to decrease the prices on their creations. From Boom to N.O.V.A. 2 to Sketch to Dropzone, the prices continue to drop across the board. There will be a special edition of the weekly deals with all the great apps you need for your new Macs next week, but for now let’s check out what’s on sale at the moment.

Getting into any hobby is bound to be expensive. That’s especially true about getting into music: it’s cheap and easy enough to get an acoustic guitar and learn your way around it, but if you want the full experience and go the electric way, you have to make a pretty big investment in equipment, and even worse, once you start with a few pieces of gear, it’s hard to stop looking for more new additions to improve your sound.
That’s where AmpKit comes in. It started off as an iOS app that allowed you to plug in your guitar and gave you access to a lot of cool amps and pedals that would otherwise be really expensive to own. Well, recently AmpKit made its way to the Mac, and today we’re going to take a look at it. Interested?
‘Tis the season to drive around town buying presents, travel hours to see relatives, to try to keep from being the Grimp while muttering Bah, humbug! under your breath. In all seriousness, the holidays are a great time to relax, stay away from email and your desk, and focus on spending time with your family.
If you’re like most of us, your Mac is the machine you use to get work done, and you’d be just as glad to get rid of it for a few days while you unwind. But then, your Mac can be a nice companion on trips and during holiday parties, giving you an easy way to play festive music, throw pictures together into a movie, and more. iOS devices are great for that too, but sometimes its nice to have a full computer at your disposal.
That’s why we’re wondering: when you travel for the holidays, does your Mac come along too? Or are you just as glad to leave it at home and get a few rare days that you’re not in front of the computer? We’d love to hear your thoughts!
