This allows you to switch the watermark on or off. If this is your first watermark, leave it switched on.

 

Watermark

Select an image that should be used to watermark your image. When creating a watermark image you could use any image editing application. The best result is achieved when using a PNG image format for your watermark image. The alpha channel in the PNG will be respected by IDimager. You can, however, use any supported image format to create a watermark.

 

Position

clip0537

Select the position for your watermark.

 

By using the X-Offset and Y-Offset fields you should be able to position the caption anywhere on the image.

Rotation

Select how the watermark image should be rotated. Options are 0, 45, 90, 135, 180, 225, 270, and 315 degrees. There's also an option to rotate over any possible custom angle.

 

Translucent

Select this option is you want to blend the watermark image into the colors of the image. You can choose any blend mode that you like. In general using the Normal or Screen blend mode will give you good results.

 

Black and watermarked becomes invisible. White and watermarked has no see through effect. Every color in-between is good. It is advised to use a dark gray shade of color for the best watermark effect.

Use relative sizes

When you design you watermark, you most likely design it against the example at the right. When you select this option, IDimager will keep in mind that the watermark is designed for this format and will scale all sizes when this watermark is applied to a different size of image. That makes this option very important if you are designing watermarks that should be generally usable, no matter what image size it is applied to.
