Create your view file index.html and include required jquery libraries.

This jquery watermark api dependent on jquery core library so first include jquery core library and after that include jquery watermark library.

index.html

 
 
<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
 <title>Add Text and Image watermark using jquery demo</title>
</head>
 
<body>
<div style="width:95%; text-align:center">
<div style="float:left; width:48%">
<h3>Test Watermark demo</h3>
<img src="img/img3.jpg" style="width:100%" class="watermark_text"/>
</div>
<div style="float:right; width:48%;">
<h3>Image Watermark demo</h3>
<img src="img/img3.jpg" style="width:100%" class="watermark_img"/>
</div>
</div>
<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-2.1.4.min.js"></script>
<script src="js/jquery.watermark.min.js"></script>
</body>
</html>

In the above code snippet i called two images, On first image i’ll add text watermark and On second one i’ll add image watermark.

Code to add text watermark

//add text water mark;  
 $('img.watermark_text').watermark({
  text: 'IAMROHIT.IN',
  textWidth: 100,
  textColor: 'white'
 });

where watermark_text is the class i assigned to first image

 $('img.watermark_img').watermark({
  path: 'logo.png'
 });

where watermark_img is the class i assigned to second image.
