alti Watermark

WordPress Plugin

Presentation

This plugin allows to add a watermark on the images uploaded.

It applies the watermark on new images as well as images already uploaded.
By deactivating the plugin, the watermark will be removed everywhere.

What makes this plugin a really powerful one, is that the watermark is placed on your images through a htaccess and php file. This means your images are actually not modified. You can still download them from your FTP, and they will not have any watermark.

The watermark is only visible if you try to download the images from a web browser.

You have to know that :
* you need to be able to create a htaccess file in your uploads directory.
* you need the GD library.

FAQ

Can I remove watermark after it was added ?

YES, you can ! The watermark is applied in a way that doesn't modify your original picture. By deactivating the plugin, the watermark will be removed everywhere.

How can I add watermark to pictures that were uploaded before the plugin was installed?

Once the plugin is activated, the watermark will be applied in all your pictures following the settings you chose previously.

I deactivated the plugin, but the watermarks don't go away, what to do ?

Most of time, it's a problem of cache.
Please, try to empty your web browser cache. If you have a plugin for cache, empty it also. That should fix the issue.
If these two solutions don't work, I recommand to remove the htaccess file in your uploads directory.

How to remove properly the watermark ?

The best way to remove the plugin is to deactivate and then uninstall it through WordPress administration panel.
If the watermark are still visible on the images or your images are still broken, they are different explainations (and solutions) :

1. Do you use a cache plugin for WordPress ?
If so, empty it or regenerate it. And try to load your images again.

2. Does your server have a cache solution ? 
If so, empty it. If you are not able to empty it, contact your host for more information. Anyway the problem will be solved by itself once the cache is renewed automatically. (Could be every minutes or every months depending on your host settings).
Try to load your images to check if the situation is better.

3. Remove manually the .htaccess file
If none of the options above worked, please go to your FTP and look for the .htaccess file in the uploads directory (ie: wp-content/uploads/) and remove it.
If you don't find the .htaccess file, make sure your FTP software lets you see the hidden files. For Filezilla, you have to select the «Server» menu and then «Force showing Hidden Files». Then remove the .htaccess file.
As soon as you remove the .htaccess file, the watermark is longer applied on images. Remember, your images are never modified. If none of the options above worked, no worries, it's a question of time, leave a comment in this same page with your url website and describe what is the issue.
