Watermark
⚠️This feature is only available on Premium Plan
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.

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

<img class="photolock-watermark" src="/someimage.jpg" alt="someimage" />
Our support team can install watermark lock on your site at no cost. Use the chat widget at the bottom right of the screen to request installation.
Watermark Settings
There are two Watermark styles you can use on 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.

Image Watermark feature in Photolock does not alter the original photo files in your server. Watermark is applied during the initial loading of your website
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.
Opacity
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.

Positioning
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

This setting is required in Image Watermark only
The output width size indicates the final width of all images after watermarking process is completed. We recommend setting this value to the largest 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.
