View Full Version : Watermark question: URGENT, please help
December 28th, 2005, 03:47 PM
I am planning to roll out a premium membership option and it will include a big gallery space with unlimited categories.
Currently I watermark the images with a small transparent watermark on the right bottom side.
What I would like to do is watermark any images as long as the member is NOT USERGROUP X. Basically the "premium member" usergroup.
IS that possible? It's kind of urgent, I am trying to get it rolled out the First of January as a "new year" feature. Really appreciate your help.

Paradise, currently watermark by user group is not a stock feature. As a hack you could modify displayimage.php so that the watermark logic is bypassed based upon the user group.

Kevin, thank you, but here is another question. I am not a coder, so while what you say makes sense, I dont know how to do that. IF you dont mind, can you explain either by PM or here in the thread, maybe with a code example.
Also another question while I am at it , if you dont mind. Can I have 2 member categories? How do I separate it into:
- Member Categories
- Premium Member Categories
And have it go into the folder w/their username under one of those they choose. Is that possible by just signifying two folders as "members photos" categories?

come on, someone, I can't write code. Willing to donate a little $ to someone to do it RIGHT.

Sorry, I've been mostly offline lately for the holidays (... and I'm visiting now only for a few minutes before guests start arriving for a part tonight). As soon as I can I'll try to hack out the code for you. Off the top of my head it's going to be (1) change your vBG options to not permanently watermark images [if you aren't already] and then (2) hacking the displayimage.php file so that the on-the-fly watermarking is bypassed for certain groups.

Kevin, THANK you so much. I know you were busy w/the holidays (as was I ), thanks for looking into it for me. I think this is an important feature for many here, and should be considered for future versions if there are any :), watermarking permissions would be an amazing addition.
