Enable & customize watermark in Nokia camera app (Android phones)

Nokia Camera app in Nokia Android phones comes with a “Watermark” option. It adds a watermark to the viewfinder, making it easier to flaunt your Nokia or show information about the picture. By default, the watermark shows the Nokia model name and the Zeiss branding (if the phone comes with Zeiss lenses). There are 3 other watermark variations which the user can select as needed. They are easy to switch, but a reddit user seems to be having problems achieving the same. So, I decided to write it down for him and anybody else in a similar boat.

Enable the watermark

Enable Camera Watermark in Nokia Android phones

You can enable the watermark from the Settings menu of the camera app. Just enable the toggle in front of Watermark: Show time, location or weather info.

Watermark is only available for photos. So, make sure that your phone is in photo mode (and not video) before you can see the option in camera settings.

Also note that watermarks are permanent. If you add it to a photo, then it cannot be removed later on. You will need to resort to 3rd party photo editors to get rid of it.

Switch between watermarks

On Zeiss co-branded devices running the latest Nokia Camera app, there are 3 types of watermark. These are:

  1. Nokia model information
  2. Time, location and weather info
  3. Custom watermark – you can add your text

To switch between the watermarks, tap on the right or left arrow which appears on the screen. The watermark needs to be enabled for the arrows to show. Here’s a screenshot for reference.

Customize the watermarks

It is possible to customize the watermarks on Nokia Camera app. For example, in case of the 2nd watermark (location info), you can add a custom location if the automatically detected location is not appropriate. Similarly, the third watermark option allows you to add any custom text.

To make changes, tap on the watermark and select the small pencil icon. An editor window will open where you can add your custom text or a custom location (depending on the watermark).
