Magento. How protect images with watermarks

If you take your own product images for your Magento website, you can place a watermark on each image you have displayed on your site to prevent people from stealing your images.

NOTE: In Magento the watermark files can be uploaded in the following formats .png, .gif or .jpg images. You can place the watermark in a number of positions so that you can place it just the way you like.

NOTE: We recommend disabling Magento cache or clearing it after all configuration changes. Please check the following tutorial for the detailed guidance Magento. How to clear cache

  2. Navigate to System->Configuration:

    • Base Image Watermark – upload actual watermark image.

    • Base Image Watermark Position – define where watermark will be positioned in the product images (Top/left, Top/right, Bottom/Left, Bottom/Right, Center, Stretch, Tile).

  5. Configure the same way small and thumbnail images settings.

  6. Click Save config button to save changes:
