Vice reporter creates an app that instantly watermarks your images.

Our phones make it effortless to share photos and videos, but if you’re a reporter it hasn’t always been easy to retain credit for your own digital content. That’s why Tim Pool, a journalist for Vice, decided to create Tagg.ly, a free iPhone app that lets you add a name, logo, location, and timestamp to your photos and videos.

“With my photos, I’m getting 50 to 100 retweets and there’s no way for anyone to know the photo was mine, I’m not getting credit for it and then it’s getting picked up and put on news websites and I’m thinking how do I get my website on there,” says Pool in an interview with Journalism.co.uk.
