Insert Watermark Script


Copyright © August, 2003 SuzShook, in collaboration with Ginny Slick. Thanks, Ginny, for the original idea!

dot   Script Summary:

The purpose of this script is to insert a tubed watermark onto the current image. The script generates 3 dialog boxes. The first asks for the name of the tube to be used as the watermark, the second asks for the actual width of the tube, and the third asks for the height of the tube.

The script calculates the position of the watermark in the lower right corner of the image, based on the size of the tube. The watermark is created on a new layer, and the Move tool is activated in case it is necessary to move the watermark for better placement.


dot   Installation Instructions:

Download the script - this script runs from any Restricted folder, including its own Quick Guide folder.


dot   Change History:

  • 00 - original version

Notes and Tips:
checkmark If the same watermark tube is used all the time, edit the script and insert the name of this tube in the appropriate location:

'DefaultText': '$watermark2003',

Do the same for the tube width and height:

'DefaultValue': 121,

'DefaultValue': '15',

Change the Execution Mode on those 3 steps from Interactive:

....ExecutionMode.Interactive,

to Silent:

....ExecutionMode.Silent,

Now you can run the script in Silent mode.

checkmark If 2 or 3 different watermarking tubes are regularly used, you may find it more efficient to make 2 or 3 copies of this script - one for each watermark you use. Then follow the above instructions, inserting the tube name and dimensions, and making those steps silent for quick, efficient execution.
