What Should a PrestaShop Watermark Look Like?
Size and Opacity
Making your watermark big and maximally distinct does not seem to be a good idea. It will hide a big part of the main image and will obviously distract users. A relatively small though eye-catching watermark with 50% opacity instead would be the best option.Place
