There is a toolbar at the top, a palette at the right where you start settings for the tools you selected, a space at the bottom to drag and drop photos or artwork to be watermarked, and the center area is the “workspace”.  Note:  Though the program is simple to use, the icons at the left of the “workspace”, are tutorials for the program’s features.
