Watermark Creation Having Difficulties
« on: December 07, 2012, 01:07:18 pm »

I'll use this gallery: http://nickchinlund.org and it is running the current stable version of CPM @ 1.5.20.

What I'm trying to ask is help in creating a watermark for all my sites currently running CPM. I'd like to use it but I don't know how big to make it and what to set the Config Watermark settings to so it applies to the images in the gallery. Yes, I've looked at the Docs regarding the resizing but I'm still not sure how to set them.

Thanks in advance to anyone willing to help.

Sorry, but I don't know how to answer. Have you already tried to apply a watermark to see the output? If not, I suggest to do that on a local copy of your gallery.

I just don't know how to create a watermark and apply it to the gallery. Plain and simple.

A watermark is just a graphic file. You can create it with e.g. GIMP or even Microsoft Paint. The Coppermine package also contains a sample watermark file: http://coppermine-gallery.net/demo/cpg15x/images/watermark.png

Creating the watermark graphic in the first place depends on what software you have such as word, photoshop etc.

Here are some instructions for various ones - http://bit.ly/QPp7mR

Once done just follow the advice from Andre above.
