Add Watermark to Photos Online Free

At the first beginning, I believe there are many options to add watermark to photos online free, since there is a list of online watermark tools appearing on Google search pages, however, it is NOT.

Most of online free watermark tool are feature limited, you cannot add watermark to multiple photos one time, or you can download only 1 watermark-added photo for free, unless you upgrade to Premium version to download them all, or there is extra watermark added from this online tool to your photos if you want to download.

For example, Watermarkly allows adding watermark to multiple photos online free, but it will put Protected with Watermarkly logo on the photos, unless you upgrade.
