PHP script to add watermark to all images in a folder

There are several situation when we need to add watermark to the image for protect copyrights and authorship of those images. But doing this task using some application isn’t a smart option. I am going to tell you a very simple and sophisticated way to generate the images with watermark dynamically using PHP.

PHP GD library is really a helpful tool to perform some image related tasks. We are going to use this library to add watermark to a bunch of images in this tutorial.

In this tutorial we are going to add a watermark to all images in a folder dynamically and saving all those images in a different folder.

Here is the PHP code:

<?php
//Source folder where all images are placed
$source="source";

//Destination folder where all images with watermark will be copied
$destination="destination";

//Creating an image object of watermark image
$watermark=imagecreatefrompng("watermark.png");

//Margin of watermark from right and bottom of the main image
$margin_right=10;
$margin_bottom=10;

//Height ($sy) and Width ($sx) of watermark image
$sx=imagesx($watermark);
$sy=imagesy($watermark);

//Get list of images in source folder
$images=array_diff(scandir($source), array('..', '.'));

foreach($images as $image){
	//Create image object of main image
	$img=imagecreatefromjpeg($source.'/'.$image);

	//Copying watermark image into the main image
	imagecopy($img, $watermark, imagesx($img) - $sx - $margin_right, imagesy($img) - $sy - $margin_bottom, 0, 0, $sx, $sy);

	//Saving the merged image into the destination folder
	imagejpeg($img, $destination.'/'.$image,100);

	//Destroying the main image object
	imagedestroy($img);
}

//Destroying watermark image object
imagedestroy($watermark);

?>
