in my galleries I use the “link to media file” option. So it pops up and you can go through the gallery. here, wordpress uses the original files as far as I can see.
Of course I can press the add water mark to ” FULL” . but then I can never remove the watermark again.
is there an option, or extra plugin, that there will be an extra copy without watermark of the original file?
I cannot find any option in wordpress to never use the original file but always a copy.
please help to solve this!

Chris, try the gallery shortcode with size parameter like this:
or use the wp_get_attachment_link filter to modify the gallery output: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/how-to-insert-media-with-link-to-file-sizelarge?replies=23 June 2014 at 14:32 #4035
Let me check! thnx a lot! your plugin is great, I just need to be sure that I never need to use the FULL. I can’t. for flexibility.
of course people can ” think” of the link to the full image. but I can make those inaccessible.
question, I have like 6000 photo’s. can I also press some button to simply watermark all?
of course I can select page by page in media them but takes time.3 June 2014 at 14:41 #4036
Sorry, but you’d have to use the media library (you can change the number of items displayed in screen options). But please do some tests before applying watermark to such a number of files.3 June 2014 at 15:59 #4040
yes i’m doing test on images I not use first :-)
but the thing in the gallery size=medium does not work. that’s only the thumbnail size IN the gallery. not the link. the link goes to full.
the other solution might work; but with a new wordpress upgrade it’s gone and need re-install and it’s hard coded. I want to have an option through a plugin or direct in the admin of wp.3 June 2014 at 16:50 #4041
Ok. got it working.
now I have one problem left, people can just access the original (full) images by looking the ” large” image url and removing the part for the large. and you still get the original full image without watermark which they could “use improper”.
any idea how to black access to full images?3 June 2014 at 18:00 #4043
Good point. But I don’t thing there’s a simple solution for this. Every file in wp upload folder can be accessed directly if one finds it’s path on server.
I’m not saying it can’t be done, but it would be a pretty tough task, even for WP developer. (http://wordpress.stackexchange.com/questions/125784/each-custom-image-size-in-custom-upload-directory)3 June 2014 at 18:11 #4044
hmm. that’s to much work for me without the knowledge.
I probably re-think the watermark issue.
I assume I can put the watermark to manual only? then I simply keep a backup of the original files offline without watermark. I can then simply upload them by ftp to the upload folder. and its tackled to.
or, I just have the FULL images with watermark to.
or, people can get to the FULL image without.3 June 2014 at 18:22 #4046
Storing original files offline is a pretty good idea – just make sure that the file names are the same online and offline. This way you’d be able to upload it again via FTP and regenerate other image sizes from it.3 June 2014 at 18:53 #4048
yes. i’ll figure something out.3 June 2014 at 18:54 #4049
PS. best would be that YOUR plugin makes an additional file in a “backup” folder. to store files without watermark. with an option in the plugin to do this or not do this. meaning not do this it’s like now, do this, it will copy the full size image to a backup folder. and a function to restore original FULL size images.
and I can block access to that folder only.
would you consider adding this?5 June 2014 at 10:17 #4067
Yeah, I agree :)
But we’d have to do multiple extra features to make it work as you described – image regeneration process, file handling, backups, etc. Image Watermark would become a pretty complex set of image tools.
Chris, I like the idea but I’m aware of the ammount of work we’d have to put into this and to be honest – we just can’t focus on this now.5 June 2014 at 10:27 #4069
Understand. I think it’s not that difficult. You only need to if people select FULL to watermark AND select to make backup (if they don’t no backup needed) to copy the files into a backup folder. this is a short code. and you have to make a short code that will copy it back with restore backup.
regeneration etc etc is NOT needed. because there are tools for regenerate thumbnails.
it’s only a copy of the FULL images into a separate folder, and the options to copy them back.5 June 2014 at 10:41 #4070
Firstly, you can’t simply move files on your server. (this is also a very server specific thing, depending on server type, it’s configuration, folder permissions etc.)
Secondly, image regeneration tools must “be aware” of the file paths changes to be able to proceed with the regeneration, that’s why you would not be able to use it.
Thirdly, images are not only files in WordPress – it’s an attachment post type, which data is stored in multiple places across database. I think that might be problematic as we’d need to store to paths to one image based on image size.
Believe me, there are much more questions.5 June 2014 at 10:51 #4071
Ok maybe :-)
but it would make the tool more great! to have an ” undo” option.
