For Text Watermark:

  • Choose the preferable Language.
  • Type in the Text you need or pick one from the ready-made samples.
  • Adjust the Font (including its size, colour, decoration). Check the Semitransparent box if needed.
  • Set the Layout.

For Image Watermark:

  • Upload the image either From File if you have it on your drive or From URL if you have an external link to the image. For portals, the option From Storage is also available.
  • Scale the image (50% / 100% / 150% / 200% / 500%). Look at the small window to the right for a preview of your watermark image.

Once configured, click OK to apply the settings.
