Automatic and Manual watermarking settings

The General Settings provides options on how to enable and apply the watermark. There are two ways to apply the watermark: Automatic and Manual.

Automatic applies the watermark when a new image is uploaded, instantaneously. This option is useful for applying the watermark on many images at once.
Manual requires the user to select images in the Media Library to apply the watermark on. This option is useful for existing images.

Enable watermark for option has several sub-options. At least one of these options needs to be enabled for the watermark to apply.

  1. Hi,

    I’m working on a real estate website, whereby logged in users can submit their property listings to the website. Hence, I want to automatically add watermark to these images. These images which are uploaded in the front-end are not stored in my Media Library. Media Library contains images uploaded by the admin.

    Does this plugin enable me to add watermark to image uploaded by users in the front-end?

    Thank You.

    • Yes, but you’d have to upload images to the Media Library. If you’re not doing that, the IW will not be able to hook into the process and apply watermark.
