Watermark Photos Using Snapseed: Rather than Android, Google also offers a wide variety of products that offer to better your productivity. However, One product is Snapseed which is an app that can enhance images with one-touch tools. Not just this but also add filters, edit RAW photos, tune images with sliders and provides them a new look in just a matter of minutes.

The app can’t free but also offers features that don’t come with most of the pictures editing tools available on the PC side of things. One such tool (Snapseed) is the ability to add watermarks to images directly on your Android device. However, Watermarks can be added as logos and text images. This guide helps you to add both of them to your images using Snapseed.
