Watermark Changes - Artist Action before 7/1/16
Jun 13th, 2016, 3:47pm
 
Please read here, an earlier notice about watermarking changes on GCU:
https://gcucommunity.com/2016/05/06/nuts-and-bolts-watermarking/
 
And this UPDATE:
GCU received some helpful feedback from many of GCU's top selling artists and will be moving forward with the following changes to Image Watermarks.
 
In an effort to maximize exposure for artists' cards and deliver a high quality shopping experience for shoppers, yet still provide an option for those artists who feel strongly about additional protection, effective 6/20/16 GCU will:
 
1. Remove the Medium image watermark option
2. Keep the Large image watermark option
3. Reset ALL artists' Watermark Setting - Watermark LARGE Image to NO
 
Beginning 7/1/16, GCU will regenerate all card images sitewide, store by store, based on your new watermark settings.
 
There are two card type exceptions:
1. Stock Card Creations (BigStock) will retain the image watermarking and are not impacted by settings in Global Preferences, per GCU's licensing agreement with BigStock. †
2. At this time Custom Front cards will not be impacted by this change and will not be regenerated.
 
What Do Artists Need To Do?
If you are ok with NO WATERMARKS on your card images, you need to TAKE NO ACTION. †Since the image regeneration process will take a while (months), if you would like to request your images to be regenerated asap please post here on the forum. †We have already done so for a handful of artists.
 
If you want your LARGE IMAGE WATERMARKS YOU NEED TO TAKE ACTION. †You'll need to reset your Large image to ON before 7/1. †This is found in Global Preferences:
http://www.greetingcarduniverse.com/community/edit_globals.asp
 
NOTE: Watermarked cards cannot be submitted to Google Shopping which is a fruitful source of sales for GCU. †If you choose to reset your large image watermark to "yes", these cards will NOT be submitted to Google Shopping and will receive less exposure than non-watermarked cards.
 
Thank you for working with us to increase your exposure for sales!

This is great news, Mindy. My newer cards have been watermark-free for about a year, but it will be nice to have the older ones consistent with the rest. Thanks!

Hi Mindy, please remove my watermarks ASAP from my images on my original store. I have been doing it one card at a time for a long time but I still have over 10,000 that need to be removed. Thank you, Hugs, Laurie

I have no watermarks currently on my cards and would like to continue to have none on my cards.  I would like to request that my cards be placed in the queue to be regenerated as soon as possible though - since my understanding is that everyone's cards will be regenerated during this process.
 
Thanks,

Now I'm confused. Why would I need my cards regenerated ASAP if I have no watermarks on my cards?
Am I misunderstanding Mindy's post?:
 
What Do Artists Need To Do?
If you are ok with NO WATERMARKS on your card images, you need to TAKE NO ACTION.
 
It makes sense that if your cards have watermarks that you want to add your name to this list to have the watermarks removed as soon as possible, as there is no other way to accomplish this from already approved cards, but I don't think those of us who've had the NO WATERMARK feature checked, therefore have none on our cards, should be in need of GCU taking the time to regenerate our cards ahead of the big regeneration process.
 
What am I missing?

Correct, if you have NEVER had watermarks applied to your card images there is no need to have your image regeneration expedited.  
 
In the early GCU days the watermark was defaulted ON so it's possible early images were watermarked before you realized it or before you changed your settings.  
 
We will run Teri's store through the process just to make sure.

Thanks for the clarification, Mindy. Okay then, since I did try the watermark feature in the early days and that was back in the 2009/2010 era, I guess I should add my request too.  Smiley
 
Please run the regeneration process on my store too. Thank you!

Just in case some of my older cards have watermarks, I'd like to confirm that I would like all watermarks removed.

Hi, Mindy,
 
Since I'm not sure if I ever had the watermark turned on, and I guess that I've been around for a few years now, would you please add me to the no watermark list?
 
Thanks for your help.

Hi Mindy,
 †I just checked and had the large watermark set to on. I, too, would like to say I would like NO watermarks.  
I set it to NO but am adding my wish here for regeneration as well.
This is for my Dragonfire Graphics shop,
my Birthday Cards Cafe' shop was already set to NO.
Thanks so much,
Betsy

1. Stock Card Creations (BigStock) will retain the image watermarking and are not impacted by settings in Global Preferences, per GCU's licensing agreement with BigStock.    
2. At this time Custom Front cards will not be impacted by this change and will not be regenerated.

Mindy, Appreciate the communication and information.  I donít believe Iíve ever had watermarks and wish to continue with none.  However, since you mentioned early images, please run my store through the regeneration process just to make sure.
 
Thank You,

Mindy,
Mine is set to no watermarks, requesting to update the rest of mine.
 
Do I need to send a separate request through my other shop, Creations from the Heart, as well or how would you prefer those of us with more than one shop to take care of this?

Mindy,
Mine is set to no watermarks, requesting to update the rest of mine.

Do I need to send a separate request through my other shop, Creations from the Heart, as well or how would you prefer those of us with more than one shop to take care of this?

Thanks,
Christie

Hi Mindy, please remove my watermarks ASAP from my images on my original store. I have been doing it one card at a time for a long time but I still have over 10,000 that need to be removed. Thank you, Hugs, Laurie


request submitted, thank you! †we'll post when complete.

 
 
Laurie, your store is complete.  
 
Please note, if these apply to your store, there are two card type exceptions:  
1. Stock Card Creations (BigStock) will retain the image watermarking and are not impacted by settings in Global Preferences, per GCU's licensing agreement with BigStock.    
2. At this time Custom Front cards will not be impacted by this change and will not be regenerated.  
 
Let me know if you notice anything out of sorts or with any questions.  Thank you!

The updates to the Watermark setting on the Global Preferences page are complete!
 
1. the Medium image watermark option has been removed
2. the Large image watermark option remains and has been set to NO for ALL artists
 
Only artists who want their large image watermark ON need to take action by changing the setting before 7/1/16.
 
Here's a direct link to Global Preferences here:

Mindy, Appreciate the communication and information. †I donít believe Iíve ever had watermarks and wish to continue with none. †However, since you mentioned early images, please run my store through the regeneration process just to make sure.

Thank You,

I think I had a brief period where I might have used watermarks, so I guess I'll request having my store regenerated, too. Many thanks!

TODAY is the last day to update your Watermark setting.  You ONLY need to do so if you want your large image watermark ON.
