Creating and Applying Watermarks

A watermark is a semi-transparent symbol, text, or pattern added to a photograph for identification. Watermarks are a great way to add an extra measure of security to the display of your photos. This is the strongest protection against unauthorized use of your displayed photos since watermarks cannot be easily removed without affecting the image.

Zenfolio offers an easy to use Watermark feature that is available to Pro and Advanced plan subscribers. When used, watermarks are placed on the generated display images only.

Creating a watermark that works for your images takes some experimentation. You can easily find some examples by searching for the word "watermark" on the Zenfolio search page to find some very creative uses of watermarks by other Zenfolio members.
