== Frequently Asked Questions ==

= Plugin doesn't work ... =

Please specify as much information as you can to help us debug the problem. 
Check in your error.log if you can. 
Please send screenshots as well as a detailed description of the problem.



= Error message says that I don't have GD or FreeType extension installed =

Contact your hosting provider and ask them to enable GD extension for your host,  
GD extension is required for watermarking.
FreeType extension is required for text watermarks.




= Error message says that I need to enable the allow_url_fopen option =

Contact your hosting provider and ask them to enable allow_url_fopen, most likely in your php.ini  
It may be necessary to create a php.ini file inside of the wp-admin directory to enable the allow_url_fopen option.




= How can I Adjust the Location of the Watermarks? = 

We have a premium version of this plugin that adds the capability to adjust the locations of the watermarks.
The positions can be adjusted both vertically and horizontally.

* Priority Support License




= How do I generate the Highest Quality Watermarks? = 

We recommend that your watermark image be roughly the same width as the largest images you plan to watermark.
That way the watermark image will be scaled down, which will work better than making the watermark image larger in order to fit.

We also have a premium version of this plugin that adds the capability to resample the watermark image, rather than simply resize it.
This results in significantly better looking watermarks.
