Telegram has become a fantastic alternative to WhatsApp and many people are loving it. It also has channels, where you can broadcast your feed to a large audience. Kinda like Twitter.
Are you a content creator or someone who shares lots of videos/images/infographics/gifs on a Telegram channel?
Then watermarking is a fantastic way to boost your brand image. Using a separate app or video editor is time-consuming, especially if you are producing content on the go, all the time.
I made a telegram bot that applies watermark on images, gifs, and videos.
A telegram bot that applies watermark on images, gifs and videos.
- Fast because it is made using async libraries.
- Simple to use.
- Any one who uses an instance of the bot will have to use the same watermark and position. This is meant to be used by single person/organization (by only you or your team), as configuration is global.
- No database connection required.
- It does not store media (photos/videos/gifs) on the server. Media is deleted immediately after the watermarked version is sent to the user.

Make sure to have these installed in your system.
- python3.9+ and pip (the bot is built with the telethon library)
- ffmpeg (used by the bot for applying watermark)
Open you terminal to check if you have all basic requirements properly installed.
python --versionand you should get…
How does this bot work?
It is simple.
- First of all, you create a bot account with the help of BotFather in Telegram.
- You deploy the bot to a remote server or run it locally on your computer.
- You send a video/image/gif to the running bot. It will instantly watermark it and send it back to you.
- You can also add your bot as an admin to a group or channel. It will apply a watermark when you post a new media.
The bot is being actively developed. More new features have most probably been added when you are reading this.
