    File size of watermarked images are more than double the size of originals. Most of my 720x480px pics went from 100K to 250K or more. Any thoughts?

    the quality of the output file is set to 100%. This is the reason, why the file size is so big. I have this in focus for the next update. At moment you can change this only in code. So find in the file: <strong >marekkis-watermark/wm_functions.php the following lines

    switch(exif_imagetype($file)) {
            case 2: ImageJPEG($photoImage,$file,100);break;

    and remove “,100“. so you need only:

    switch(exif_imagetype($file)) {
            case 2: ImageJPEG($photoImage,$file);break;

    After this the quality of the watermarked images will by stay at default and the size of your pictures change minimally.

    I'll close this topic because you can follow my instructions to change the size. If you still have problems with this topic, please open a new one.
