A watermark is a more or less transparent image or text that has been applied to another image to either protect the original image or to make it harder to copy the item. By using Photolock™, you can apply a watermark to all your pictures with a single click.

You need to add the "photolock-watermark" class to images that you would like to have a watermark.

Watermark Settings

There are two Watermark styles you can use in your photos, and you can customize the size and position of your watermarks as you like.

Please note that while testing the watermark feature, the changes may easily get cached to your browser and you may not see the changes you make instantly. We recommend clearing your browser's cache every time you change Watermark settings to make sure everything will appear as expected.
Text Watermark

You can add a text watermark to your images. You can customize the following features for your text watermark

  • Opacity (Level of transparency)
  • Font Size
  • Text Value
  • Positioning
  • Background Color
Image Watermark

You can customize the following features for your image watermark

  • Opacity (Level of transparency)
  • Output Width Size
  • Positioning

The watermark image/pattern is not yet customizable. The app will use Photolock™ logo to watermark your images. Custom watermark images will be available soon. 

Image Watermark feature in Photolock™ does not alter the original photo files in your server.

The opacity property specifies the opacity/transparency of an element. It can take a value from 0.0 - 1.0. The lower the value of opacity, the more transparent the watermark will appear over your photos.


You can set your watermark to appear in a particular area of your photos. Available position options are:

  • Top Left
  • Top Right
  • Top Center
  • Center Left
  • Center Right
  • Center
  • Bottom Left
  • Bottom Right
  • Bottom Center

The image watermark will be most effective when positioned in the center, though you can position it to any area. The text watermark will be more visible if positioned close to edges. 

Output Width Size

The output width size indicates the final width of all images after watermarking process is completed. We recommend setting this value to the most considerable width value you have among your watermarked images.

For example, if you have an online store, your product images will most likely appear in two places, on collections, and on the product page. The width of a product image is generally smaller when displayed in collection pages, and the larger version of the same photo will is shown on the product page. The output width size value is recommended to match the larger width or the most considerable width value anywhere on your website.

This setting is required in Image Watermark only


Ghostmark™ is a fun way to protect your photos especially if you are not fan of disabling Mouse and Keyboard actions.

When the Ghostmark™ is activated, everything will appear to work as usual and users will get the impression that they can save an image, but when user attempt to save an image, they will not be saving anything other than a transparent image file, which is the Ghostmark™.

Ghostmark™ will only work if Mouse Locks and 3D Touch Lock is turned off. These locks will override Ghostmark™, and users will not be able to download any content from your site.
