Add a watermark

Watermark an image with your company logo.

Use a company logo watermark to help protect your digital property, prevent others from using your images without permission, or to promote brand awareness. The Composite (Watermark) transformation lets you position an image, text, or shape on your image.

You can automatically apply this watermark to any image included in the policy. This reduces the number of images you need to store and maintain for your site.

Here's our image before and after we applied the watermark.

To add a watermark to any Image and Video Manager image, first locate the URL of the image you want to watermark. The URL for the image must be on your domain, for example:

https://www.fashionableguy.com/Asset_Archive/002/mensshirt.jpg

How to

  1. Go to > CDN > Image and Video Manager.
  2. Select a contract and a policy set name, then click Manage Policies.
  3. Click Add New Policy.
    The Name Your Policy window appears:
  4. Enter Watermark in the Policy Name field and click OK.
    The Image Policy Editor appears:
  5. Add the Composite (Watermark) transformation by expanding the Transformation menu and selecting Composite (Watermark).
  6. The Composite (Watermark) configuration screen appears.
  7. Select a vertical offset in the Vertical Offset field. For example, 10.
  8. Select the location (for example, Northwest) in the Gravity field to indicate the corner the base image where you want to place the applied watermark image.
    The Horizontal and Vertical Offset position adjust the applied image’s gravity position. In this case, the gravity of Northwest and the Vertical Offset of 10 places the applied image in the top-left corner of the original image and shifted up 10 pixels.
  9. Save the Watermark policy and go to the URL for the image on your staging web site.
  10. Apply the impolicy query string parameter to the end of the URL as follows: https://www.fashionableguy.com/Asset_Archive/002/mensshirt.jpg?impolicy=Watermark
    The following image now appears:
