Still More Watermarking Questions . . .
I know that there have been literally hundreds of questions about watermarking. I've read them all, and I'm still confused.
Here's what I think I know:
In the Admin utility, "Watermarking Options" refers to PERMANENT watermarking, where the watermark file is actually merged/embedded in the uploaded & stored JPG, right?
"On the Fly" watermarking is non-permanent, and the watermarked images are generated on the fly as each page is requested. The stored images are not altered, and this can be turned on or off at will. This type of watermarking is enabled under "Image Protection Options".
So far, so good?
I have managed to get BOTH types of watermarking to work, so I don't have a configuration problem.
The part I don't understand is:
It seems to me that the "on the fly" watermarking would be the type that is configurable by usergroup. Yet only when I have the PERMANENT watermarking enabled do the usergroup options appear on the "Edit Categories" pages.
When I have "on the fly" enabled and "permanent" disabled, then the usergroup options do NOT appear.
What am I missing here?
I wish to use ON THE FLY watermarking, to leave my original images unaltered, to display a watermark overlay to non-trusted usergroups, and to eliminate the watermark for usergroups that ARE trusted.
Where am I going wrong?
