My product images are not watermarked, no matter what settings I try in administration.

  • www-data has the write permission to ./pub/media/catalog/product/watermark and successfully writes the files there.
  • flush magento cache, "Flush Catalog Images Cache" and "Full page Caching" every time
  • have set the sizes and opacity for every picture, without the bug Can't set watermark in Magento2 / How to change footer links?

I run a Magento 2.1.7 with a custom theme. Since I still have the problem on the default "Blank theme", I am looking to the way Magento2 computes watermaks ( module may be missing with that settings?).

Thanks a lot by advance for any advices.

  • Found the problem: the settings were overridden at the store view level. Aug 28, 2017 at 9:43
