    At the moment it’s not possible to freely move the watermark but if you choose a picture as a watermark (e.g. your logo), then you can specify the horizontal and vertical location of it in the menu.

    Schirmfoto uses the default email application from Windows. In Windows Vista and Windows 7 you can click on the Start menu and then select the entry “Default Programs”. This allows you to select your favorite Email application and to set it as default for the “mailto” actions.

      On email tab you have two options. If you hit on upper part of the tab then you’ll be given an option to send the photo as pdf and if you click the lower arrow then you’ll be shown more options and from them you have to chose an option. In order to send emails correctly you should configure your Outlook (or any offline email client). Then only you will be able to send photos via email.
