View Full Version : Differential watermarking

February 23rd, 2003, 12:43 PM
What I would like to do is to offer free accounts to some members and also fee accounts to other members.

For the free accounts one trade-off will be their photos will be branded with a watermark as an advertisement whereever they post it.

For the fee aacounts I would like to have the option of no watermarking.

Is this possible?

You can of course setup different permissions for different usergroups but not with regards to watermarking:

It's actually quite easy to hack this in if you're using on the fly watermarking. A few if statements in showphoto.php can work wonders ;) I've got different watermarks for different usergroups, no watermark for some groups, different again copyrigth watermarks for individual users. All hard coded though.

Could you PLEASE tell us how you did it? I can't even get an image when I do on the fly watermarks. I have GD2 but I don't get an image when I do on the fly watermarks.

This is quite an old thread.

Watermarking is settable by usergroup in the category permissions.

As far as images not showing doing on the fly watermarks you can ask a question in the support forums. I would suspect you have not filled out the options in watermark.php with the server path to the image directory and watermark file.

It's all there it just won't do on the fly watermarks it will do upload permanent watermarks but not on the fly. I don't even get an error just no image.
