In addition to the brand messaging possible using the Event name, subtitle and footer message (see here), you can change the watermarks which are applied to each image uploaded to an Event and you can change the gallery header image (the first thing people see when they open their gallery).
Branding is a big part of why many photographers and clients love to use our technology. You can use it to promote your own brand, sell branding as an add-on feature to you clients, or simply use a watermark to protect your images and help drive sales.
Branding is usually applied at the event level, though you can have devices at the same event using different watermarks by using Device Specific Watermarks when you get a little more advanced.
If you want to make sure that your design files fit perfectly, be sure to use the template .psd file available in the Branding section of any Event Page (follow the instruction below and we will point it out).
Branding is applied at the Event level. Access the Event Page for the Event you want to configure by logging in to the ELEMENTICE™ Console, clicking on "Events" tab on the top banner of the Console and then select the relevant Event.
You are now on the Event Page and can access the different configuration sections using the headings located beneath the image feed. Choose the Branding section.
First things first; you want to make sure your files are the right size and type for use with the ELEMENTICE™ Platform - either adhere to the details written next to the title of each upload box, or Download and use the Branding Template .psd file available on this page.
Upload your files
When you are ready to upload your files. Click upload and you'll be shown a dialogue box where you can drag and drop ONE file or click to use a file explorer to select your file.
*If you don't upload a portrait specific watermark, the system will assume that you are using a single watermark for both landscape and portrait (because it would be weird to only watermark landscape images and not portrait).
The watermark anchors to the lower right corner of the image, so if you want to have the same watermark appear in the lower right of both portrait and landscape images, you only need to upload one Watermark (1000 x 1000 pixels).
How it works
Watermarks are applied to images when the image is first received by the Console. If you change the watermark half-way through an event, it will not re-watermark the earlier images, this is why it is important to check your watermarks are working correctly BEFORE you start the event.
If you are using a watermark, rest assured, your original unwatermarked images are still kept in the database. You can have your cake and eat it too.
Allow device watermarks setting should be left as "No" unless you are specifically trying to use multiple watermarks in the same event - see One Event - Multiple Watermarks or Device Specific Watermarks.
