Permanently implement watermarking tool.
« on: October 24, 2004, 07:20:32 pm »

Hi
I have just implemented this watermarking hack to my gallery: http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php?topic=7160.0
I worked just great!  ;D

Now i would like to ask, if it can't be implemented in future releases of CPG?

Sorry, but the dev team has made the decision not to add any type of watermarking to the core code.  Mods and hacks of this type will always be welcome.

And it still says on the frontpage, that this feature is coming ;)

I for one, don't have GD2 support :-( I would need an imagemagick 'mod', - so I welcome the mods, - and agree it shouldn't go in the core as it won't work for the majority of users... Maybe the Core functionality should be for ALL users, - I don't know.. the Dev teams knows :-)

But at the install of CPG you can choose which libary you have, the same thing could be used to the watermarking tool?!

true, - but I don't think GD1 is useable for it. I think it needs to be GD2 or Imagemagick, - but apart from that, - you're right.

These are complicated hacks, and trying to insert both into the core code, and then make them admin selectable, would be a hugely complicated task.

And as most users would not use either, these should remain as add ons.

We do not want to start introducing componants that can only be used by some users.

It has been a long time now since I did my little bit here, and have done no coding or any other such stuff since. I'm back to being a noob here

Ok, that's fine be me....
But would'nt it then be a great thing to remove this feature fromt the frontpage?!?

Actually, it is one of those things i have been waiting for in CPG for quite a while now [;)]
Until i finally had the courage to do it myself......  :o

We (or rather: I) are planning to implement a watermarking mod that will not watermark on the fly, but just batch-modify all (or a number of selected pics) to have a watermark permanently. As suggested above, this hack will have to work with all image libraries supported by coppermine, and it has to be "non-intrusive", meaning the watermarking stuff has to be done in a separate file that holds all code needed for the watermarking, so it can be savely applied to coppermine without messing with the core code. Instead of adding images I was rather suggesting to option to add text to an image permanently (maybe using opacity) - this can at the moment be done easily for GD2 with TrueType support. As you can clearly see, the watermarking is not on the feature list on the frontpage, but on the todo-list.
Giving this a second thought, you're maybe right: there's no sense in telling people what we're up to if we haven't got code ready at least in the devel branch of the cvs, so I'll modify the frontpage accordingly to remove the watermarking from the todo list.
