Adobe Experience Manager Assets lets you add a digital watermark to images. Assets supports applying an image as a watermark to other image files. Watermarks can help users verify the authenticity and copyright ownership of the assets. Also, a watermark can be used to indicate a document’s state like confidential, draft, validity, and so on.
To configure Experience Manager to watermark assets:
A PNG file is applied as a watermark. Upload this file to your DAM repository.
Navigate to Tools > Assets > Assets Configurations.
Click System Watermarking Profile.
On the System Watermarking Profile page, specify the image path uploaded to your DAM repository in step 1.
Specify the watermark scale, ranging from 0.0 to 1.0, relative to rendition width, in the Scale field.
If you have configured System Watermarking Profile using
com.adobe.cq.assetcompute.impl.profile.WatermarkingProfileServiceImpl.cfg.json configuration file (OSGi configuration), you can continue to use it, however, Adobe recommends to use the new method.
Create a processing profile to leverage asset microservices to apply the watermark.
Ensure that you enable the Watermark toggle while creating the processing profile.
Apply the processing profiles to a folder to create watermarked assets.
