I need a fast computer before April 1st. I am almost done with my auto watermarking script apache plugin. It will watermark all the images from the server with the out put form another fortune type script. The fortune script is just like anyother fortune script except it handles one variable passed to the script on the command line. In this case I have a wrapper script for it supplies the name of the referring host requesting the image. So if you are looking images from the server via live journal it will randomly watermark the images with things like "What kind of losers use livejournal?", "thenetw0rk is the internets version of the short bus." "Your mom uses livejournal" etc. If you reload the image, an all new message on the image. Unfortunately, in testing, my system doesn't have the cajones to support this. Especially if people think it's funny and hit reload a lot (which I kind of hope they do).

Careful with this. if it is a _htaccess "hack", you run the risk of people who legitimately viewing your pics on your page to have 'broken' images. I had a similar _htaccess script running on the corporation I was working for and it worked beautifully, but for a small measurable number of visitors - they saw no images at all. (especially intranet users)

This is a perlmod that applies to mimetype image/*. If the image is over a certain size it watermarks it.

This is also a one day thing, so if a minority of people have problem for one day... Who cares?

Gotcha. My _htaccess hack was to stop people from linking to the websites images from off sites. So the images on the other sites would have watermarks that said STOP STEALING, or: Your mom's so fat, when I said Kool-Aid she came busting through the wall!

Stuff like that.

I see what you are doing and what I was doing are two diffrent beasts. I was just trying to help. :)
