Like many creatives, photojournalist John D. McHugh (opens in new tab) is sick and tired of people ripping off photos he's posted online. So he's created Marksta (opens in new tab), an app that enables you to watermark your work, adding your copyright information or logo direct from your iPhone before uploading them to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, or other sites.
It's very user-friendly, with a choice of fonts for your text, and the fact that the app's been designed by a pro photographer shines through.
This handy app will be sold on iTunes for $2.49/£1.49 but is currently available for free download (opens in new tab) "for a limited period" - so we recommend you grab it right away!
McHugh is also working on making the app play well with the iPad, in an update he hopes to make available "very shortly".
