For each Theme, you can add one of two types of a watermark:

  • Text watermark, in the form of a custom text message
  • Image watermark, in the form of a custom image

The watermark will be visible on all embeds using that particular Theme. Since the watermark is part of the SmartFrame, it’s not possible for third parties to remove it in any way, which means your images stay protected at all times.

Responsive watermark
Text watermarks are not responsive and will remain the same for very small and very large images. If you plan to use the same Theme for small and big pictures, we recommend you use an image watermark and select one of the scaling or repeat options, which will ensure that the watermark is responsive.

The preview that you can see on the watermark page in the Admin Panel allows you to see only the watermark. In order to preview how this appears on an actual SmartFrame, you can click on the Preview button at the bottom of the page. This will open a full preview of the Theme, which includes the changes you’ve just made, even before you save them. Once you’re happy with the results, you can save the changes by clicking on the Save button.

Text watermark

The Text watermark consists of a string of text that will be displayed in your SmartFrame.

You can adjust how this appears using the following options:

  • Font family
  • Font size
  • Font color
  • Stroke color – we recommend using a stroke color opposite to the font color to ensure that the watermark will be visible on both dark and light backgrounds
  • Bold
  • Italic
  • Opacity level
  • Position of the watermark inside of the embed

Image watermark

If you already have your own watermark created, click inside the field that has the text Upload watermark image (JPEG or PNG, no larger than 1MB) and select your chosen file.

You can further adjust how the watermark appears using the following options:

  • Opacity level
  • Scaling
  • Original size of the uploaded image – no responsiveness
  • Fit the image – watermark will keep the original proportions but it will be enlarged to fit the image size
  • Fill the image – watermark will be stretched to cover the whole image, original proportions of the watermark will not be preserved
  • Position of the watermark in the embed
  • Repetition
  • Don’t repeat
  • Repeat x – watermark will be repeated on the horizontal axis
  • Repeat y – watermark will be repeated on the vertical axis
  • Repeat both – watermark will be repeated both the horizontal and vertical axes, covering the whole embed
