per author image watermark on upload
I have been searching for awhile now for a solution , and have now resigned myself to the idea that i will have to code this myself.
I have tried various image watermark plugins, and can’t get any
of them to work. I need it to happen on upload, behind the scenes
as well (no encompassing plugins like nextgen).
I will have a folder with pngs based on each author’s login.
and then insert a function that uses imagecopy() with the_author_meta( $user_login); set to a variable that chooses which png to watermark with.
does this make sense? am i missing something? it doesn’t sound
too complicated, so i am wondering why i am not finding it already
done… that makes me think i am missing something…
ideas? thoughts? thanks!
ok so i ended up trying marekki’s watermark plugin again, and got
it to work. so that got me 99% of the way there.
each user has their own watermark in a specific folder on the server
(images/company-images/watermarks/, in the root of the site), using
their user_id as the name (ie 12.png or 7.png) you can see the user
ids from the user list on the admin side.
anyway, in wm_functions.php i changed :
“$imageLogo=ImageCreateFromPNG(“… (line 81 i believe)
$user_id = get_current_user_id();
$imageLogo=ImageCreateFromPNG(“http://www.absolute-path.com/images/company-images/watermarks/”. $user_id. “.png”);
i am sure you can use siteurl and make it relative, but i hard-coded my site’s address (not absolute-path.com)
hope it’s useful to someone, I didn’t change the settings page
or anything, so it’s not a “clean” change per say, but it works.
I am starting to clean it up now, but functionally it’s what i
needed so the rest is minimal.
