Add a Watermark to the Product images

Provide a level of protection to your images, on the web, by using your Firm/Company’s watermark. Begin by clicking on 'Settings', in the top panel, of Store Manager, and select Preferences. In the sections list, locate the ' Image Watermark' option.

A form, with currently selected options, will be displayed.

Add Watermark

Check the upper field, and specify a filename, and its direction, in the drive system of your computer. Use the 'browse' button, to locate the desired image file (see an illustration above).

Customize the view of the watermark, and the Product's Image: Set the percentage of its opacity, and specify its localization, etc., by making appropriate choices, within the middle, left, or right side sections of the screen.

In the lower section, you will be able to preview how the watermark will look, over your displayed Product images, after saving the configuration changes.

Please note: Any changes made, will apply only to new images of the Products, which are subsequently added, to the Store database.

Also, if you want the watermark to be present, on all pictures, within the Store Catalog, be sure to overwrite the existing images of the Products, with the new images.
