    Is there a way to remove the watermark only from the thumbnails? I thought this was a feature but I can't seem to find it now.

    @nppbc The watermark ​​can't be removed.
    As far as I know, the only solution is to create a new set of thumbnails, of course doing that from the original images without watermark. Do it like this:
    Don't delete the images from the management page of the interested gallery - otherwise you'll lose metadata and tags - but upload the original pictures without watermark to their place in the relative folder (the directory must be exactly the same, so check the name of the images) directly on the server via FTP, overwriting the existing ones.
    Now go to the gallery page in Manage Galleries, or update it if you are already there (I'm not sure if clearing cache is needed), but to be sure that the images are the ones without watermark click on one or two of them and check.
    Select all the images and start "create new thumbnails" with a bulk action.
    After that you'll have new thumbnails without watermark. Do any other action now, if you have some, and keep the watermark setting as the last one because, for instance, if you change thumbnails size with watermark already setted, a new set of thumbnails with watermark will be created.
    Check the gallery if it is as expected and when you are ready set watermark, and it will be only on the full size images.

    P.S.: Keep in mind that using "clear image cache" button most likely will make reappear watermark on thumbnails.

    Wow! LoL Too difficult because I've got those pictures all over my PC. I think I'll just live with it. It's good to know that there is a way. I've used another PC based album creator that would watermark the main image but leave the thumb alone if one choose that option. I think the program was called jAlbum. It wasn't WordPress but you had to store all the photos on your PC for it to work.
    Thank you for the quick reply.
