vB Version: 3.8.2 Rating: (9 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 134
Released: 29 May 2009 Last Update: Never Downloads: 667
Not Supported Uses Plugins  

yeah, so I forgot that I updated this until I just came across it. So here she is updated and confirmed working on 3.7.x- 3.8.x

What does it do:
-Adds a watermark to all images uploaded to user albums and optionally profile pictures.

-Option to watermark album images
-Option to watermark profile pictures
-Can set whether to watermark thumbnails or just full size images.
-Can position watermark in 1 of 4 corners.
-watermark image gets resized when it is larger then the image to be watermarked
-Completely changed functionality so that it now adds the watermark at runtime and makes no more permanent changes to images.

- If after you first install you do not notice a difference then clear your browser cache.
- It works with all 3 storage types for album images, but will not watermark thumbnails if you have the storage type set to 'Keep pictures in file system, but allow direct access to thumbnails'
- It only works for profile pictures that are stored in the database. I will attempt to see if I can create a workaround for this when I get a chance.
- If you want to watermark attachments there already exists 2 modifications that I have tested first hand and know work on the latest version of VB.
- This has been tested and confirmed working in VB 3.7.x as well.
- Again please clear your browser cache and test before you report problems to me.

Installation Instructions:
1. Create or Use the watermark.png I attached, and upload it to your forum root before anything. You will receive 'file does not exist' or no images will display(depending on the browser) if you do not first upload an image named 'watermark.png' to your forum root( The folder you have vbulletin installed in).
2. Import the 'product-pb_watermarkalbumimages.xml' file through the product manager.
3. Go to AdminCP->Vbulletin Options->Vbulletin Options->PB Watermark Settings and configure the settings.

Screenshots have been attached.

Apologize for the above question. I see the answer right in the description of the mod.

Now I have another issue. Some member upload 640X480 images and some upload large 2048X whatever and the watermark is very tiny on those large images and huge on the smaller images. How do I make the watermark proportional to the image???

Does NOT work on 3.8.4


I created a png file, transparent background. Saved it to my forum root, chmod 0777 the file. As you can see from that link, there's no watermark. (click images at bottom of page, some images have a perm. watermark on them from before)

(ps - there was a problem with vBulletin here. I edited my msg ^^above a couple times and it appended new posts each time instead of just saving the one I was working on) ??

Great mod.

I changed the png to my own one, the name of my website, so it's a bit more transparent instead of the white wording.

Just wondering any joy in making an option to center the watermark or even have it diagonal, as it is at the moment it's not doing much as a watermark as it could be very earily cropped out.

Add this and it would be 100% perfection!!!!

Any chance the mod could be extended so as to not show the watermark for certain paid usergroups?

Great Hack. Thanks.

But tell me, is there a way that the text Watermark would appear without any border or like transparent over the pictures?

So, is there a way to get a transparent background for the text or picture for the watermark?
