Is there a way to make my images that are seen on my site have a watermark, but allow selling on my site so if someone buys an image, there is no watermark?

I have had selling turned off for over a year now to avoid this. I would like to try to make at least something off my site if possible lol.

Thanks

Hi J.Litton
I don't want to get into a lot of specifics since this is not the zenf help center but you can place a watermark on them for viewing but there will not be a watermark on them when they are printed as along as you are using THEIR watermark. If you upload your own photos with a watermark then simply set your account up so you have to approve all sales which will ask you to upload a full size photo for the print job.

I just spent a few hours going thru this on my own account so it is fresh in my mind.
Good Luck

It is possible to use your own watermark. You can upload your watermark and there are settings for opacity and placement. You upload your full res photos with no markings and the site overlays the watermark. There are no watermarks on the gallery thumbnails.

Here is mine. Click one of the thumbnails to see the watermarked photo.

I see. The issue is, I don't want my watermark covering the entire picture, and due to the type of photography and ever changing backgrounds, watermark placement is a big deal

Look at mine...they do not cover the whole image...just the lower left corner.

As the others have mentioned, you can alter the size and placement.
