When working with watermark removal tools, it is important to fine tune as much as possible if the software allows. Try to get the caption box as close to the watermark as possible, so that you reduce the area which needs to be worked on. Also check that all of the watermark is inside the caption box and that there is no spillage. Although online tools may be a quicker method of watermark removal, the quality is not as good and often you will see a blur on the screen where once there was a watermark, which may be just as distracting as the watermark itself!
