The tool provides the flexibility to save files at preferred location. Once the process is completed the tool displays accurate path where the newly created file is stored.

It does not alter the original PDF file but create a new file instead. This way the original file with watermark stamps remains saved on machine while new PDF gets stored for saving data without the watermarks endorsed.

Limitations Associated with the Tool:
As per my personal experience with the tool; I haven’t noticed any discrepancies regarding its functionality, but there are some minor modification required.
- The tool only supports the PDF files created over Adobe Acrobat Reader and to make it more flexible, it is required that it must support PDF files created over other online or offline mediums.
- This is a Windows based product and works on this Operating System only. However, likewise PDF files, the tool must be supported over Mac and other major OS as well.
Considering all above mentioned features, functionality, benefits as well as limitations, it can be concluded that PDF Watermark Remover is a good choice for removing watermark stamps from the PDF files. As a whole, the product is worth investing as the features available in this price range are appropriate to carry out successful task.
Moreover, availability of Personal, Business and Enterprise licenses provides users the choice to select one in accordance to their needs and demands. However, some features needs to be added and modified to make the tool more scalable but these can be compromised as the available features works accurately and efficiently.
