Add Video overlay Icon to Zenphoto Thumbnails

  • Edit zp-coretemplate-functions.php, look for printCustomSizedImage() function and edit it to switch to using style=”background:url(‘’)” as shown below.
  • Configure overlay image:
    • Start with a completely transparent png the same height and width as your thumbnails (168 pixels in my case)
    • Find a preferred icon for the image (perhaps via Google Image Search) and paste that into your transparent background…
    • downsizing and hiding it in a corner is a nice effect
    • as well as adding a little bit of transparency

For example:
Video_Overlay
