I don't want files to be permanently watermarked. I'd like them to display on the forum in the same way that they display in the gallery. I'm surprised to hear that this is only an internal script option because I'm positive we had that working on this gallery in the past prior to the software upgrade. I am not aware if that was a modification or not though because I wasn't looking after it then. We were able to display photos within forum posts with a temporary watermark. I know this because I could go to the direct link and get the picture without the watermark if I wanted to.
If I go with the permanent watermarking option, and turn it on in the categories, then would I need to turn on-the-fly off in order to avoid doubles in the gallery display?
Example of a recent double that was created when category stamping was on: http://gallery.backyardpoultry.com/s...covies&cat=585
