I have Symbiostock 2.6.1, WordPress 3.6 and my watermark was made with the templates kindly provided by another Symbiostock user (

Take a look at a vertical image (cut off)

versus a horizontal one (looks good)

I figured the watermark would scale but it doesn't. The vertical image is 393 x 590 - a standard Canon 5D Mk II image that is 3744 x 5616 scaled down by the image processor

Do I have to make my watermark 393 x 393 (or keep the image to that size) vs. 522 x 522? The example shows art all the way to the edge and I didn't even come close as I'd seen things cut off even on horizontal images when I did that.

I can change the watermark if need be, but I want to do something that will look professional on 100% of my images. If this is a bug, then I can reprocess images once it's fixed

You should upload a 590x590 watermark.. that did the trick for me..

I am using a 522 x 522 but I have setup my text in the watermark at an angle so it fits within portrait and landscape formats.

I forgot to mention that my watermark covers the whole image, thus works very well with 590x590 dimensions..

You may get different results with different types of watermarks..

I'm using 522x522 also and no problems. (except on the one Panorama I have)

Thanks for the feedback.

If uploading a larger watermark (I've seen yours as a "bleed" and wondered about that) is OK, then the comments in the template that the dimensions must be exact for that file aren't quite right. It's OK as long as it's square and you take your chances with the design if you make it larger and don't take into account it'll be cut off?

I might just redesign my watermark a bit if it's the correct behavior that the PNG file is never scaled regardless of the size on the image page.

590 is the max size both ways, horizontal or vertical..

as far as I know png is never resized..
