In short: This script allows you to add an image watermark to a directory of pictures!
Lets start (Linux users please adjust where necessary!)
1. Download my script, here’s a link.
2. Save this file to your GIMP install followed by \share\gimp\2.0\scripts. GIMP is often found under Program Files (for those Windows users like me). While you’re there, why not open up the file and take a look at my hard work and imagine the alcohol needed to fuel that.
3. I did not put time into writing a fancy interface. This script is best run from command line. For Windows users Start -> Run… -> Cmd (hit OK) will do the trick.
4. Type cd followed by your GIMP directory (i.e. cd “C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\bin”)
OK take a break for one second and see what my command lets you define:
Watermark Path – Path to a watermark in XCF (GIMP) format. Other formats may work as well.
Input files – Path to directory, followed by a wildcard search (i.e. *.jpg to target all jpg images to be watermarked).
Watermark Size – How big your watermark will be in accordance to the image. This is a percent but is entered as a decimal such as .05 (5%).
Watermark Padding – Each watermark will be padded from the corners of the image by a percentage (of the entire image) you define. This is a percent but is entered as a decimal as well.
Watermark Layer Mode – leave this as 0 (zero). higher numbers (i.e. 1,2,3…) will enable a different layer mode such as lighten/hard light/etc.
Position Number – My script allows for the watermark to be aligned in any corner, or the center. Acceptable values are 1,2,3,4,5.
Output Path – Where the watermarked images will be saved to.
