General settings

klixo watermark general settingsKlixo Watermark Plugin handles images inserted in the content of Joomla articles, Intro image and Full article image.

Apply to: You can select which Joomla articles images should be watermarked from the plugin settings.
  • Content images
  • Intro Images
  • Full Article images
  • Content and Intro images
  • Content and Full Article images
  • Content, Intro and Full Article images

Watermark type: You can create a text watermark or copyright notice, an image watermark or use both (image and Text watermarks) and apply it only to selected images using the class filter setting.

Use class filter: if you want to watermark only certain images in your Joomla articles, you can specify one or several css classes in the plugin settings.
When using the class filter, the plugin will watermark only the content images having one of the CSS classes specified in the settings.
For example, if you enter the class "protected" in the Image Class(es) field, the plugin processes only the images having this class in their html image tag.
You can enter several classes into the Image Class field. Simply separate each class name by a comma. ClassOne,classTwo etc.
Note that class names are CaSe sensitive!

Stork on a fieldWatermark Lightbox images: The plugin is compatible with many popular lightbox scripts such as JCE Mediabox. To watermark lighbox images links, enter the class used by the lightbox script in the Lighbox classes field. If you use several scripts, separate each class name with a comma.

In the example on the left, the thumbnail image has the CSS class "noCopy" and the JCE Mediabox plugin creates links having the CSS class "jcepopup".
To process both the thumbnail and the large image link, the plugin is set to watermark content images having the class "noCopy" and lightbox classes "jcepopup".

Text settings Klixo Watermark plugin for Joomla

You can type any text to create a watermark or copyright notice. As for the image watermark, the settings let you adjust size, opacity, rotation and position of the text on the target images.

Watermark font

The plugin comes with a selection of open source fonts. If you prefer to use another font, upload the font file in truetype (ttf) format into the fonts folder of the plugin.
Path to the fonts folder:
site root/plugins/content/klixowatermark/fonts
Once uploaded, the font becomes available from the Watermark font drop down menu.

Font size

The font size can be specified in points (pt) or as a percentage (%) relative to the target image.
If you specify % for the units, the font size will be calculated as a percentage of the biggest side for each image.
For example a value of 5% will produce a font size of 20 pixels (≈15 points) for a 400x200 pixels image and a font size of 50 pixels (≈38 points) for a 1000x1000 pixels image.

Advanced settings

The advanced settings offer more control on the plugin behavior.
Save watermarked images in:

  • Original format. The watermarked image will have the same file format as the original image (by default BMP files are converted to png, unless you select Jpeg format as output format.)
  • Png format. All watermarked images are saved in PNG.
  • Jpeg format. All watermarked images are saved in JPEG.

Use the Jpeg quality slider to adjust the quality of Jpeg images created by the plugin.

Activate plugin:

You can activate the Watermark plugin  Only for Joomla articles component or Always.
When selecting "Only for Joomla articles component" the watermark plugin code is executed only for Joomla articles.
If you select "Always" the plugin will be triggered also for other components and modules.
For instance, if you want the plugin to function with the Joomla module Custom HTML, you should select Always.
Some third party components use the same method as the Joomla articles component to render their content. When set to Always, the watermark plugin may work on the images displayed by these components.

Time out protection: is a very useful setting for sites that use a lot of images. If set to Yes the plugin will process each image separately when the page is rendered, rather than processing all the images in one single batch. This allows the page to load faster when the images are processed and prevents to reach php max_execution_time if there are too many images to watermark.

Note that once the images are processed and watermarked, they are saved in the Joomla cache folder and the plugin will not have to do intensive work each time the page is loaded. In other words, there is no performance impact when using the plugin.

URL format: You can choose different url formatting for the watermarked images. (Append base path, relative URLs, absolute URLs). Append base path is the default and recommended setting.
