How to Watermark a PDF File


PDF files can be transfered online very safely because they can be encrypted and if the person that receives them does not have the required password or certificate he cannot see the contents of the documents. But what happens when you post documents online for everyone to see and you still want some kind of guarantee that they will not be used by someone else as if they belonged to him? In this case the best solution would be to watermark your PDF files. To do that you would need a specialized software but the bad news is that such software programs are complicated, expensive and usually do not offer tutorials that show you how to watermark a PDF file.
