Using PHP to overlay a watermark on your images
... came across an article that allows for overlaying a watermark (image or text), instead of adding a watermark to and changing an uploaded image. I haven't had a chance to try this out, but thought I'd see if someone has tried this with Classipress and what possible conflicts might exist.
Quoted from the article: "What we are going to do is fake the display of an image. What we are displaying instead of the image is a php file that processes the image and ads a watermark to it. The url of the image stays the same, the watermark gets printed on the image and best of all the image on the server doesn't stays intact."
If this really works can the process be applied to only "Classified Ad" photos (selective) and will the overlayed watermark carry through when viewing a larger format gallery photo.
Here's two articles, complete with code, on this topic:
