The same way as Gallery 4. An original copy is retained if necessary.

We've had this circular discussion to exhaustion which is why I have given up hope that IPS will ever get image handling right. It is not fixed. Storing the original image was never a solution for those of us that already had 10's of thousands of images prior to version 4 or from other scripts. All that was ever needed was an option to not reapply the watermark when rebuilding the images (ie if you wanted to change thumbnail sizes). Not only did the storage of the original image increase the storage overhead significantly for those of us that didn't need or want that option, it did not address the legacy image rebuild problem.

How do you remove a watermark from an image?

Once watermark you can't. I say the backup file that is there for such that reason.

The backup file is there so that if you change your watermark, or implement new thumbnail sizes, those settings can be correctly applied. The vast majority of our clients who submitted bug reports about the watermark WANT their new watermark applied to images when they rebuild those images. They do NOT want to upload a new watermark, rebuild images, and have the old watermark still used on the old images.

At some point if you are going to be allowing your users to upload files, you have to accept that you will need sufficient disk storage.

That's actually nice to hear. I had a problem with this in gallery 3, which resulted in my images being stamped with two different watermarks.

Though those images are still stuck with the watermark now, it's nice to know there's a backup in place for future uploads now.
