Picfair Plus Guide: Watermarks

Stores and Plus

16 August 2019

Posted by Philip Mowbray

With Picfair Plus, you have full control over how watermarks appear on the images on your Picfair Store. With our advanced watermarks feature, you can upload your own, or you can even remove them altogether. In this guide, we're explaining what watermarks are, why they are important, and how you can customise them for your Picfair Plus Store:

- What are watermarks and why are they important?


Watermarks are a semi-transparent image or design that appears on top of your photo in order to protect it from unauthorised use. Watermarks are designed so that they cannot be removed and to strongly discourage images being used without the photographer’s permission.

All images uploaded to Picfair are protected by the Picfair watermark, which includes your name and the Picfair logo, both on our Global Marketplace and on Picfair Stores. Images are only released without their watermarks when a buyer purchases them. As a Plus user, you have full control over how you want watermarks to appear on your images on your Store, by being able to upload your own watermark - which is fantastic for enhancing your Store’s brand whilst also protecting your images, or you can also choose to remove them altogether.


- Configuring watermarks for your Plus Store

You can configure custom watermarks by going to ‘Advanced Settings’ on your Store Settings dashboard. Here you can customise your watermarks, first of all by switching the toggle button to green - which will indicate that custom watermarks are enabled. Then you will see also the option to remove watermarks or choose your own watermark. 

If you select ‘Remove Watermark’ all watermarks will be removed from your images. Please note: watermarks will be only removed on your Store, and not our Global Marketplace.

If you select ‘Custom Watermark’ you will be prompted to upload your own image file, which will be your watermark. We recommend a PNG file with a transparent background and not exceed 200px wide or 200px tall. The file should should also not exceed 1mb. When you upload your own watermark you can also alter its opacity - which means how ‘transparent’ you want the watermark to appear. The higher the percentage of opacity, the less transparent and more prominent your watermark will appear over your image. We recommend trying different levels of opacity until you find the amount you like.

Many users choose to turn their logo into a watermark, and you can learn how to do this with our additional tutorial, here.

Overview of watermark configuration from Advanced Settings, you can see here the opacity is automatically set to 50, and you can choose between 0 and 100. The smaller the number, the less transparent your watermark will be.


- Examples of different watermark settings:

Picfair watermark: this is the default watermark assigned to all images on Picfair's Global Marketplace and on Picfair Stores

No watermark: this is how an image looks without a watermark

Custom watermark: this is a custom-made watermark that has been uploaded to a Picfair Plus Store, it looks fantastic and you can be as creative as you like!
