Watermark Hotlink Protection

Displays a watermark on images which have been hotlinked

This plugin allows you to Automatically displays a watermark on images which have been hotlinked as they are viewed on the Hotlinkers Website.

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.
