Read Part 3 here!
This article will focus on editing your site’s Image Processing settings. This is where you would add an image or a text based watermark for images uploaded to your site.
First you want to log into your phpFox Admincp. Once there, select Settings, then Manage Settings from the menu.
You should now see the following screen. This screen shows a list of all the settings categories that your site has. Under the Global Settings heading, select Image Processing.
There are a number of fields to edit in the Image Processing settings for setting up your image watermark. The following is the list on a default installation. A short description of each field will follow after the screenshot.
Image Watermark - you can enable watermarking of images. Your options are an image based watermark, a text based water mark, or no watermark at all.
Image – you can upload an image to use as your watermark. By default the watermark is the phpFox tail logo. It is suggested that the image you upload have a transparent background and be no larger than 52px tall/wide.
Watermark Photos – set this to true to enable watermarking of photos uploaded by members of your site. Note, you must have Image Watermark enabled.
Watermark Opacity – this is where you set the transparency of your watermark. You can select a number between 1 and 100. The lower the number the more transparent the watermark is.
Watermark Position – select where you want the watermark to show up on images. You can choose to place your watermark in the top left, top right, bottom right, or bottom left.
Watermark Text Color – if you choose to use a text based watermark, this is where you would choose the color of your watermark.
Watermark Text – if you choose to use a text based watermark, this is where you would add the text for that watermark.
After filling out these fields, select Submit to save your information. You have finished editing your Image Processing settings!
