Wmark Script - README


The Wmark script (Script-Fu) is used with the Free & Open Source Image Editor GIMP and will create a watermark on the actual image. In the configuration section of the script the text, fontname, fontsize, position and some more settings can be specified. After installing the script, it will appear in the menu Script-Fu under Wmark. This script is based on the Fu-Script called watermark.scm which was created in 2001 by Doug Reynolds. Later it was modified by Patrick Biegel and renamed to wmark.scm.
