How to apply watermark on a image?

Watermarking means applying an image with a transparent/non transparent background on another image to protect the image from unauthorised use of it by other parties which doesn;t own the image.

The following function can be used to add watermark on images.





The function accepts 2 parameters

1. the source image - the image on which watermark has to be applied
2. the position of the watermark image on the source image.





*****************CODE START***************

<?php

function apply_watermark($imagesource, $position = 'bottomright'){
$info = getimagesize($imagesource);
if($info){
switch($info[2]){
case 1 : { $image = imagecreatefromgif($imagesource); break;}//gif
case 2 : { $image = imagecreatefromjpeg($imagesource); break; }//jpg
case 3 : { $image = imagecreatefrompng($imagesource); break; }//png
default : { exit("Unsupporter file type"); }
}
}
else{
print "Can't read required image data";
}

//watermark image
$watermark = @imagecreatefrompng(getenv('DOCUMENT_ROOT').'/images/logo.png');
$imagewidth = imagesx($image);
$imageheight = imagesy($image);
$watermarkwidth = imagesx($watermark);
$watermarkheight = imagesy($watermark);
switch($position){
case 'topleft':
$startwidth = 0;
$startheight = 0;
break;
case 'topright':
$startwidth = ($imagewidth - $watermarkwidth);
$startheight = 0;
break;
case 'middle':
$startwidth = (($imagewidth - $watermarkwidth)/2);
$startheight = (($imageheight - $watermarkheight)/2);
break;
case 'bottomleft':
$startwidth = 0;
$startheight = ($imageheight - $watermarkheight);
break;
case 'bottomright':
default:
$startwidth = ($imagewidth - $watermarkwidth);
$startheight = ($imageheight - $watermarkheight);
break;
}
imagecopy($image, $watermark, $startwidth, $startheight, 0, 0, $watermarkwidth, $watermarkheight);

// Output final image
switch($info[2]){
case 1 : { imagegif($image, $imagesource, 100); break;}//gif
case 2 : { imagejpeg($image, $imagesource, 100); break; }//jpg
case 3 : { imagepng($image, $imagesource, 100); break; }//png
