Adding Watermark or Copyright Info in Sitecore Image? , Yes this module will help
you to generate the watermark text on the image.

Prevention is better than cure!

Image is the big asset of any website but on the
webpage/website anyone one can download and use your valuable images, do you
want to protect your image? The question is how? There are a couple of
techniques we can adopt to safeguard our copyrighted content and prevent people
from doing so.

One of them is watermarking our images with our logo or
watermarking the website name on the images. Yes, this module will help you to
generate your company logo or any text on the image so the image would generate
as the watermarked image on the fly. 

If you are selling the images on your website
or image is the key component on your website then this module is the best fit for
you.

In this module, I proposed a watermarking the image using
some predefined configuration in sitecore. I have extended the existing JPEG
and Image template to support the watermark image generator.

This module has below features

  • Generate on the fly text on image called watermark image
  • Preview the watermark image using preview and edit mode.
  • We can change the property of watermarked text like font, style, color, position, opacity etc.
  • Reflecting on web database and preview/edit mode only
  • Base image will not impacting which is in master database.


Using this module you can customize the watermark text on
image as below
  • Font size
  • Font position
  • Font color
  • Font opacity
  • Font style
  • Font family

  1. Photo Watermark does exactly what the name suggests – it lets you add watermarks to photos – but the types of watermarks you can add are quite varied.
    Not only can you add custom text as a watermark (including changing the font, size and color), you can also use your signature (or any other hand-written text) as a watermark by writing on the screen.
    You can also apply stickers, a timestamp, a location, a mosaic effect, or ‘graffiti’ (which basically just lets you go wild on your images with a digital paintbrush). Whether you want to protect your photo or just log when and where it was taken, there should be a tool here to suit.
    Photo Watermark is free, but it’s quite heavy on adverts. For $0.99/£0.89 per month you can get rid of them, but unless you’re adding watermarks to a ton of images it’s probably not worth it.
