If your Photo Cart is suddenly getting a 500 error or only displaying a blank page then you or your hosting company has updated the PHP (programming language) to PHP 7 which Photo Cart is not compatible with (and will not be compatible with) mainly because of the removal of the my_sql functions which are replaced with my_sqli functions. 

You would need to have the PHP version downgraded to 5.6 in order for Photo Cart to work. If downgrading the PHP doesn't work then you may have to update Photo Cart to the last version of 7. Download Photo Cart 7 upgrade files. Upgrade instructions.

Photo Cart was retired in 2015. Check out Sytist.

Controlling The Watermark Displayed On Free Downloads

Sat Aug 23, 14 12:45 PM CST
I have my Display Images watermarked with my logo. I have my Zoom Images watermarked with both a light tile pattern in the background AND my logo.
WHAT I AM TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH: I would like my Free Downloads to be watermarked as my Display images are, with only my logo.... no tiling.
WHAT IS HAPPENING: The Free Downloads are the SIZE of the display images, but have the watermarking pattern resembling the Zoom Image (with tiling)
In my settings, I have chosen the option for clients to download the Display Image with a watermark.
MY QUESTION: Is there a way to remove the tiling watermarking and leave the logo watermarking on the Free Downloads?

For the free downloads, the only option is whether to watermark the free download or not. There is not an option to just apply the logo to the free download.

Can someone give me a bit more explanation of what each watermark setting is for? I too would like to in the future have a separate watermark for downloaded images. But if I have to set the free download watermark to be the desirable one, which one below should I change? What does the "add logo" do?

Watermark display images: Yes No
Watermark zoom images: Yes No
Location of watermark:
Watermark file:
Add logo: Yes No Location of logo:
Logo file:
Thumbnail images
Watermark thumbnails: Yes No Location of watermark:

The free download watermark & logo settings will be the same as you have for all your other photos.

Watermark display images: - The smaller photo the viewer sees.
Watermark zoom images: - The enlarged photo

You can also add a logo that will be applied to the photo as well, generally a small transparent PNG file in the bottom right corner of the photo.
