stuck on the watermark (4 posts)

    So, awhile back I found the NextGen gallery plugin. Thought it was cool, downloaded, unzipped, etc. I was/am particularly interested in the watermarking feature. I uploaded a "test photo" - an old photo that didn't mean anything to me - just to test some of the features, learn about the plugin, and so forth - and I really liked it. At the time, in order to test the watermark plugin, I typed in a bit of text, and it worked just fine.

    Earlier this week, armed with several jpg photos, I logged in and uploaded those photos to Nextgen. I also uploaded my website logo, a b&w GIF. I went to the options-watermark page and attempted to change to the "use image as watermark".

    However, it seems that watermark preview is stuck on the original "test photo", including the text watermark I added. I'm using v.98. This is not super critical, as I can add the watermarks offline and then upload them, but I'm tossing it out so that it can be improved in future releases. Other than this one experience, I have really liked what I've seen in NextGen and I can't wait for the next release.

    to clarify: the watermark preview is stuck on the test photo, and it will not let me switch to an image watermark OR add a text watermark to any photos. Basically I can't add any watermarks to my photos.

    WOW! I can hardly believe it was that simple, but you're right, Alex, and everything works perfectly now!

    I love this plugin and I'm looking forward to see how it develops!
