There are 4 possible watermark types:

  1. Text: allows to add a text-based watermark to the image;
  2. Image: allows to overlay an image on the top of the picture;
  3. Script: allows to cover the whole image with the repeats of horizontal and vertical text, so no single part of it can be used without your consent;
  4. Datestamp: allows adding a digital date to the image.

5. Lock “Keep watermark size proportional to each image”


Proportional watermarks are sized according to the size of the image being watermarked.


If you add a fixed size watermark, either a text or an image, the watermark size will remain the same on all images despite the size of the image.


For proportional watermarks, the watermark size is calculated according to the dimensions of the watermarked image.
