Image Watermark settings

Image settings Klixo Watermark plugin for Joomla and K2

You can use any image to create a watermark. The complete settings let you adjust size, opacity, rotation and position on the targets images.

Text Watermark settings

Text settings Klixo Watermark plugin for Joomla and K2

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/klixok2watermark/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

Klixo K2 watermark plugin. 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.

Time out protection: is a very useful setting for sites that have a lot of images like large photo galleries. When 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.

We have developed this Joomla extension with great care and tested it thoroughly on different browsers, platforms and Joomla installations to ensure maximum compatibility and stability.

However due to the huge number of extensions available for Joomla, testing every possible setup would be virtually impossible.

Therefore, we cannot guarantee that our extension will work on a specific installation, especially if you have a large number of extensions installed. Conflicts between extensions can always happen, one crashing the other.
Support for paid extensions is available through our support forum to customers with a valid subscription. We cannot answer support requests by email.
