Why should I add watermark to images?
Watermarks are used to discourage stealing images - especially by competitors. It makes it very difficult for somebody else to use it because your store's name or logo is on the picture. Watermarks can be made very discrete so as not to interfere with the visible of the image at all.
What type of watermarks can I create
There are two watermark features available:
- Add text based watermark: The text based watermark allows you to choose the font, text size, text color, position and opacity.
- Add image based watermark: The image based watermark allows you to upload an image of your choice. You can choose the image size, position and opacity.
Here are the steps to add an image based watermark:
Select "add watermark" from left menu:
Select "product images":
Select which products' images to add watermark. You can choose "all products". As example here, I choose "products in 'new' collection":
Select "add picture based watermark":
Click "Choose File" to Select the watermark file from your computer. (We highly recommend using a PNG file with transparent background for watermark). Here as an example, I choose a PHOENIX logo:
Choose a position to place this watermark. I choose Bottom Right of the image.
Watermark size is relative to Images height. I choose 30%. If the image is 1000px in height, the watermark will be 300px in height.
Because my PHOENIX image is quite light in colour, I slide opacity all the way to the right. So it is totally opaque. If you want to have semi transparent watermark, you can slide it left.
Can I preview the watermark on my images?
We don't have a preview feature, you need to run the actual task to see the final look. So we recommend that you test with one image first before deciding on bulk editing large number of images:
This is how you can do it:
In the optional step 4. I specify an image file name. So the bulk editing will only work on this image.
Once the task is finished, I can click on "details" to see the effect:
If you want change the configurations, such as larger watermark or more transparent watermark, please revert this task by clicking the "Revert" button before apply a new watermark. Because the app only allows one watermark per image.
