You can use the drawing software that comes with your computer to cut off the watermarked part, or you can send the picture to a mobile phone and use the mobile phone software to cut the picture to remove the watermark.

This method requires the installation of PS software, but the operation is very simple and only requires two steps. And the vast majority of the watermark can be removed without cutting, without loss of original picture content.
