View Full Version : Watermarking Problem...
April 22nd, 2007, 02:24 PM
I currently had this feature working before my database screwed up... i just restored a backup etc.. everything seems to work fine apart from this feature..
How can i get this to work? i don't even know what is wrong if it was working before...
I have the FULL URL path to the logo.png file and i have set the YES option for...
Permanently Watermark Images
Set this option to 'Yes' if you would like to permanently watermark your images. If set to 'No' your uploaded images will not be modified. Please note that this option requires the GD library.
What do i do now? even in the categories.. when i clicked edit, by default it has a tick for the watermark section so it should show up on my images but it doesn't.
Please help as this is a very important feature for my website.

Just to make sure you are covering all bases, have you checked each category to make sure EVERY usergroup is checked to have their images watermarked?

yeh, everything is setup perfectly but still not showing the watermark.
Nothing was changed in the settings either. Iv double checked everything a few times now and im getting annoyed as to why it doesn't work.

Great you got it going :)
Now you should be able to watermark the rest.
AdminCP => vBGallery => Maintenance
- Watermark Files

Thank you, it worked like a charm :)

AdminCP => vBGallery => Modify Settings => Uploading Options
If you would like to add a watermark to uploaded images enter the full path (NOT the URL) to that image here. Otherwise leave this setting blank.
AdminCP => vBGallery => Maintance => Watermark Files
I did according to your instruction
I didn't give this path "/full/path/to/watermark.png"
I chosed GD 2 and went to maintance and Watermark files
But when I went to my Gallery and checked the photos nothing appear?
Am I missing something here?
Thanks a lot.

something is seriously wrong with my watermarking thing
i went to SCAN DATABASE > Check here to watermark unwatermarked files.
This action cannot be undone - backup your data directory and photos database! > selected ACTION SHOTS category
selected that one to test since it has only 190 pictures
system took me to another page showing all images urls and at bottom of page FINISHED
i go to my gallery, ACTION SHOTS category, check my pictures and still not all my pictures are watermarked
even after doing this!!!
this is frustrating why cant you help me on this issue is there a bug or something?

question.. are u using GD or ImageMagic? to manipulate images..
because that library is used for watermarking also..
maybe your host upgraded GD1 to GD2.. or you switched your settings by mistake..
EDIT: just seen u use photopost and not vbgallery.. sorry.. never touched photopost..
