           Summary: Watermarks: Add support for svg and variable parts
           Product: digikam

            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: Batch Queue Manager

Version:           unspecified
OS:                Linux

I saw in DarkTable (http://darktable.sourceforge.net/ ) that they support svg
files as watermarks. They provide also some placeholders/variables--such as
$(EXIF.DATE), $(IMAGE.EXIF), $(EXIF.LENS) and so on--to place inside that svg.

I think that svg is a good format for a watermark as you can lossless change
its size (width × height). With the placeholders you can embed e. g. the
filename (say, you rename your images like yyyymmddxxxxxx, where ymd is
year/month/day and x some "serial number" or simply a counter). With that you
can embed something like "ID: $(FILENAME) \n © my name". Or to use the example
from darktable: 
      Camera: $(EXIF.Maker) - $(EXIF.MODEL) $(EXIF.LENS)
   Timestamp: $(EXIF.DATE)             $(DARKTABLE.NAME) v$(DARKTABLE.VERSION)

I'm sure, that there are much more ways to use this feature, so it would be
nice if you could implement it.

Reproducible: Always
