What do people use to watermark pictures?

I habe been using an application called PicMark for many, many months now.
Always worked like a charm until tonight.

I watermarked a set of 19 pictures earlier tonight - no problem.
Then I needed to watermark ten more using the same watermark and now suddenly the application crashes everytime as soon as I start the process.
I tried watermarking only one picture - same problem; tried with another watermark I had used before, still the same problem.
Deleted the application and reinstalled - same problem.
Rebooted the Mac - same problem
Looked for corrupt preference files or something like that but when I do a 'find' on PicMark all that comes up is the actual application.

What else can I try to fix that problem.
I assume there is a file somewhere that became corrupt and causes the issue.

Any other free application I can use until I have this problem figured out?

Does this mean anything to anyone?

seems to me there is a bigger problem than just PicMark.

This is a last generation Mini running 10.6.4

Send a message via AIM to chas_m
I think it's fairly obvious that the problem is some hidden file PicMark left behind that is corrupted. You might try using EasyFind rather than spotlight, or chat with the developer to see where the rogue file might be.

The problem seems to be a bit more complex than just a corrupted file.
I tried EasyFind (which was new to me). Nice program - it found two picMark preference files and of course all the crash reports.
So I trashed everything, emptied the trash and started afresh with a new download of picMark.
Looked like everything was pristine - all my old watermarks were gone and we were back to basics.
So far so good.
But then after running the first batch of watermarks which went through OK, I got this message:


And then on the next run I was back to picmark crashing with the type of log I posted earlier.

Did the whole thing again.
Found the preference and application files for picmark; trashed them all, started from scratch, one run works, then that runtime message, next run no message, run after that picmark crashes as soon as one tries to watermark the pictures.

I'm going to run the meomory test over night to see if that shows anything.

I ran Rember through 50 test sequences - no problems found.
Next would be the full Apple hardware test tonight unless someone has some other ideas where to look.

I don't think there's anything wrong with your Mac and I believe you recently moved to Mac OS 10.6.x SL no???

It looks like it may be time to forget PicMark and find and use something else.

From the macupdate page:

Platform: PPC

Just a thought... Are you using and installed the last 2.2 version of PicMark?

The 2.2 download at the macupdate site is actually v. 2.1, but the 2.2 version is available from the url provided in the comments.

DigitalCalamity - Applications

The version readme says some bugs fixed etc.

The picmark readme says:
PicMark
Version: 2.2
Date: February 21, 2005
Requirements: Mac OS X

but the creation date and 'about' is shows 2007.

Yes - thus my title for this thread.

Trouble is I can't find any other application that is nearly as straight forward to use.

JetPhoto Studio was recommended, but not only is it cumbersome to just add a watermark, the watermark also needs to be an image.
For most of my pictures which I get from other people, I just want to add 2010 Person's Name to the picture

I realize PicMark is an older PPC application; doesn't look as if it's even still supported by the developer, but I have used it with 10.6.4 without any problems until yesterday with my Mini.

I also have a laptop running 10.6.4; tried it on that.
I do get the "runtime" message first time I use PicMark, but no crashes, at least not so far. A bit cumbersome to move the picture files to the other Mac, mark them and then move them back, but it's a work-around for now.
Something obviously changed somehow in mid-stream.
I haven't added any applications or made other changes to the Mini.
I also thought a corrupt preference file or something like that was the culprit as Chas_m suggested, but trashing all the picMark files and starting again didn't resolve the problem.
I also tried using ImageWell to watermark, not very good either, but interestingly enough, it crashed as well.
So I assume it's a common denominator between at least those applications.
If not the Mini, maybe the program that lets me run PPC applications on this Intel Mac???

In any case, I might as well run the memory test during the night to give the Mac something to do while I'm sleeping.

And another tidbit - I googled EXC_CRASH (SIGTRAP) - lots of hits, lots of people with that issue (whatever it is), but no wspecific cause or solution that I could find.

Other than the crashes with PicMark and ImageWell, my Mini seems to be humming along just fine.

Originally I was running 2.1, just ported over with MA.
Then yesterday, after the problem started, I downloaded 2.2; same problem.
Then when I trashed everything and downloaded "2.2" from the net again, I actually ended up with 2.1 as you noted.
I just trashed everything related to PicMark again and downloaded 2.2 from the other site you posted - same problem.
Can't even get one run in, the application crashes as soon as I start the process to watermark.

Same activity on the other 10.6.4 Mac is fine - PicMark there is actually version 2.1
I wonder if something is corrupt in Rosetta on the Mini.
Maybe trashing that and redownloading it is an idea............
