Improved watermarking of Downloads

The Old Man

Recommended Posts

The current watermark option is very basic and applies only to screenshot images, not the actual download.

Here’s my thoughts/needs for Downloads watermark improvements:

  • Apply watermarks to files not just screenshot images
  • Enable/disable watermark per category
  • Enable/disable watermark per file
  • Embed watermark into PDF per category/file
  • Force watermark yes/no
  • Ability to generate a unique watermark per download, logged in AdminCP to aid future accountability/traceability, if required.
  • Choice of text/unique random string/image watermark formats

There is obviously no golden solution, but if you have say members only downloads (that are not available to guests), or you charge for membership subscriptions, a bad actor can download the file and distribute them. Same applies with actual paid files.
