A WordPress watermark plugin is used to watermark images in your WordPress website. The term ‘Watermarking’ of images refers to the process of allowing images to be copyright protected and thus disallowing the image to be used without authorization. With the growing number of sites coming up on the internet, waterproofing of images has become an essential requirement for your WordPress blog.
It helps in uniquely identifying images in your WordPress blog and thus discourages its unauthorized usage. It has become a conclusive solution for copyright problems that are so pervasive in the world of the internet.
There are many watermark plugins that are available in the WordPress platform. A widely used WordPress watermark plugin is the Watermark my Image plugin.

The WordPress ‘Watermark my plugin’ allows you to place a watermark beneath original images that can be present in your website.
