Watermarking help

Post by iampercival88 »

We currently are developing a script for applying a watermark onto images of various sizes. We have been using the COMPOSITE imagemagick command but unfortunately are not getting our desired result- since we are using various sized photos but only one size watermark icon, the watermark is coming out either super large across a photo, or incredibly small and unreadable.

We are wondering if there is a way with imagemagick to create the watermark icon with a certain size ratio to the image its going on, so that it is proportionally consistent across all our photo sizes?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

You can create your watermark at the maximum size you need. For each photo, "-resize" the watermark as required.

I would always use the "convert" or "magick" command, not "composite",

If you need more help, please say what version of IM you use, on what platform, and what your command is currently.

I have moved this topic to the Users forum, since it was not directly related to any one of my scripts.
