Watermarking your image files

You can add an optional custom-branded watermark in your workspace settings for three different use cases in Stockpress.

Tip: You can add any file as a watermark, but we suggest a transparent PNG file with 50-70% opacity and find that white logos and marks work the best.

Adding a workspace watermark

To add a watermark, click on your user icon in the top-right corner of your workspace and select All Settings.

Access All Settings in your workspace

From your settings area, click on Workspace settings

Scroll down to the Watermark section.

Add a watermark to your images

Click the upload button to select a file from your computer. Remember, transparent PNG files with a slight opacity are suggested.

Upload a watermark

Once your image has been uploaded, you can select the position for your watermark. Options are center, top right, bottom right, top left, bottom left, or tile.

Select a watermark position

You can preview how your watermark will look on your image files before saving.

Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Save to apply the changes.

How watermarks can be used

Display a watermark after a file expires

To set up watermarks on expired files, scroll to the bottom of the workspace settings page and toggle on Enable expiration dates on files.

Once toggled on, a new option titled Action after files expire will appear. From the dropdown on the right, you have three options

  • No action: all expired files will display the expired notice and expiration date, but no restrictions will be set.

  • Disable downloading: all expired files will no longer be downloadable by any non-admin user.

  • Add watermark: all expired image files will now display your watermark to any non-admin user.

With expiration dates on files* enabled, you can now add an expiration date to a file, or files, in your workspace. Once the file(s) expires, your new watermark will be automatically visible on. your single file view, and embedded into the file when it is downloaded. Find out more about file expiration dates here.

* Note: watermarks are only available on image files.

Display a watermark for custom roles

Watermarks can be made visible on all of your image files based on a user's custom role. Find out more about custom role option here.

To enable watermark previews, go to your settings area and click on Roles.

Create custom Roles in your workspace
Add custom roles

From here you can add a new custom role, or edit a role you have already created.

Click on the Capabilities tab and scroll to the Watermarked previews only option. Turn the toggle on and click Save.

With watermark previews enabled, all image files in your workspace, accessible by users in this custom role, will contain your watermark.
