Simple Watermark

Description

This plugin allows you to Automatically add a watermark to all images as they are viewed on your WordPress Website.
Watermarks are not permenant, original images are not edited.
The plugin maintains a cached copy of the watermarked image, which can be cleared and regenerated at any time!

The plugin uses PNG watermark images with transparency for precise control over the appearance of the watermarks.
This plugin also supports simple text watermarks with adjustable color, size and transparency.
The user friendly settings page allows for control over the appearance of your watermark.
The watermark preview feature allows for easy testing of the plugin settings.
The watermark size is controlled as a percentage of the target image, 50% means the watermark will be half the width of the target image.

This plugin needs to add to your .htaccess file, and will not work if you do not have a .htaccess file or mod_rewrite.

NOTE:
This plugin may have a slight impact on the performance of your web server, use of the Included Basic Caching System is Highly Recommended!
The premium version of this plugin also includes an Advanced Cache System which performs nearly identical to when the plugin is disabled.

FAQ

Plugin doesn’t work …

Please specify as much information as you can to help us debug the problem.
Check in your error log if you can.
Please send screenshots as well as a detailed description of the problem.

Error message says that I don’t have GD extension installed

Contact your hosting provider and ask them to enable GD extension for your host, GD extension is required for watermarking.

Error message says that I need to enable the allow_url_fopen option

Contact your hosting provider and ask them to enable allow_url_fopen, most likely in your php.ini
It may be necessary to create a php.ini file inside of the wp-admin directory to enable the allow_url_fopen option.

You can also use a relative url path as a workaround, an example is provided on the settings page.

How do I Remove Watermarks?

You can disable the plugin to remove the watermarks.

How can I Adjust the Location of the Watermarks?

We have a premium version of this plugin that adds the capability to adjust the location of the watermarks.
The position can be adjusted both vertically and horizontally.

How do I generate the Highest Quality Watermarks?

We recommend that your watermark image be roughly the same width as the largest images you plan to watermark.
That way the watermark image will be scaled down, which will work better than making the watermark image larger in order to fit.

We also have a premium version of this plugin that adds the capability to resample the watermark image, rather than simply resize it.
This results in significantly better looking watermarks.
