Watermarks are used to mark images so that they can be identified as belonging to a particular group or individual. The Gallery application from Softaculous does allow you to add watermarks, but they will need to be created in a separate application and the module will need to be enabled.

The following guide will show you how to enable watermarks and then show you how you can upload them to use with your images.

You will now be able to upload watermarks for use with the images that you have added.

Uploading Watermarks in Gallery

A watermark can be a signature, initials, or some type of graphic that helps to mark your images so that they can be identified.

Add a watermark

There are a few limitations in how the watermark is applied to your images with Gallery. 

  • You can only have one watermark for the Gallery.
  • It will only be applied to the thumbnails and resized images in Gallery. This means that the full-size version of your image will not have a watermark on it.

    You should restrict access to content using registered users and groups if you want to control what your users can view without a watermark.

  4. Click on the Upload a watermark button to add your watermark.
