8.16. How can I remove or change watermarks in my images?

Once a watermark has been applied to an image via SSB, and 48 hours have passed, it cannot be removed; it's now part of the image. If the watermark was placed toward the bottom, top, or side of the image, you may be able to crop it out using the Image Editor in the Image Manager. Otherwise, you may need to upload a replacement image.

With either method, the image will be replaced in both the Image Manager AND in any saved listings or active listings at eBay. You will not need to end or revise the listing. Please note that it is not possible to remove watermarks in bulk.

To crop out a watermark:

Navigate to Images > Manager > View Images.

To the right of the image thumbnail, you'll see some icons. Click the "Edit Image" button.

Another window will open to the Image Editor. Click "Crop."

Crop your image in such a way that the watermark is cut out of the picture. Click Apply, then click "Save and Exit."

To reupload the image:

Navigate to Images > Manager > View Images.

To the right of the image thumbnail, you'll see information about the image. Click "Upload Date."

Another window will open, displaying a thumbnail of your image. Click the Browse button. Browse the images on your computer and select a replacement. Click Open.

Then click "ReUpload."
