Add a Watermark

To Add a Watermark For Member's Area Photos:

Step 1) Upload your watermark image via FTP to your site's member's area /content/ folder. Due to its ability to preserve transparency, a PNG file works best. CHMOD the image 755 or 777.

The watermark .png file must be located in your members /content/ folder e.g. /content/watermarkfilename.png

Step 2) Log-in to your cms admin panel and go to Plug-ins/Full Size Photo and Thumbnail Setup and click Edit. Locate your Full Size Photo(s) and click Edit. You'll see a Watermark Image field. Enter the filename of your watermark e.g. watermark.png and then select the location of the watermark from the dropdown menus below.

NOTE - This only adds a watermark for the current site you're managing. If you have multiple Full Size Photo settings you must perform step 2 for each of them in order for all photos to be watermarked.

Step 3) The next time you add a Content Set and check the Create Content box for your full size images, the watermark will be added.

If you want the watermark to be added to prevously added photos you must re-perform the "Create Content" process for those sets. The easiest way to do this is to use a Batch Operation. This can be done by clicking Utilities/Batch Operations, checking the Create Content box for full size photos and clicking the "Start Batch" button. This will result in the watermark being added globally to all photos.

Also note that if you change the location of the watermark or the watermark image, your previously watermarked sets will not be updated until you re-perform the "Create Content" process for those sets.

NOTE:“ The batch will only continue to run as long as your browser window remains open. Should a batch end prematurely for any reason, simply visit the Utilities page and click Process Queue and your batch will continue, picking up where it left off.

To Add a Watermark For Tour Photos: 

Step 1) Upload your watermark image via FTP to your site's tour area /content/ folder. Due to its ability to preserve transparency, a PNG file works best. CHMOD the image 755 or 777.

Step 2) Log-in to your cms admin panel and go to the Tour Manager (Tour Icon or Plug-ins/Tour Manage) and click Manage. Select a tour and click Edit. You'll see a Watermark Image field. Enter the filename of your watermark e.g. watermark.png.

The watermark .png file must be located in your members /content/ folder e.g. /content/watermarkfilename.png

Step 3) In the section of the page that lists image locations, enter a 1 in the Watermark box for each image you want to display the watermark on.
