    To whom it may concern,

    I want to put an “active” overlay on certain images I load with the image placeholder. I’ve tried various watermarking plugins and formats and realised they just won’t work as they all will either screw up my existing cleaned up uploads of images or there is no backup for the originals.

    Thus, I am looking for an active overlay that will somewhat “protect” the image with a overlay watermark or text. As the images seem to be loaded as an object on the image placeholder. Is there a way I can execute such a thing, that serves something like a watermark but retaining the original image? The main purpose is still being able to use a non-watermarked image for other display purposes on the website, but when there is a full-display, the image can still be protected.

    Unless you do have an alternative to suggest as I have already tried the following WordPress plugins and none seem to work out properly:
    1. Easy Watermark
    2. Dynamic Watermark
    3. Watermark My Image
    4. Watermark WP Image Protect
    5. LDW Watermark

    The main idea is hopefully to use a “on-the-fly” / dynamic watermarking solution. Please advice. Thank you.


    if it must be a secure method to show your images – all possibilities with layers do not have a secure effect. If you want it you must create a watermark in the same layer as the image!

    CSS3 allows web designers to specify multiple background images for box elements, using nothing more than a simple comma-separated list.

    #example1 {
    width: 500px;
    height: 250px;
    background-image: url(sheep.png), url(betweengrassandsky.png);
    background-position: center bottom, left top;
    background-repeat: no-repeat;

    but everyone who knows to handle a developer tool or to read source code is capable to have the images without watermark than.

    so i think there will be no alternative to a watermark plugin.


    thanks as always @guenni007 for helping out.

    So let us know in a new ticket if you have some more questions about the theme.

    Best regards,
