You can set different image, watermark, position for every post/page/category individually while free version allows you to set same image for all of your posts.

I was using this plugin for one of my clients, and at first, it was not working (Actually, it was. A glitch on my end). I contacted the plugin author and got a swift response and also realized that the plugin was doing the job perfectly fine. What's more, is that the other plugins are just scrappy and not up to the standard. Check this one out if you need a cleaner, faster approach. Kudos to the creator!

Before this plugin we used to have to manually add watermarks on our og:images. This plugin is a must-have for any good blogging site. Very easy to use and the premium features are definitely worth the cost. Works well with Yoast SEO and does a lot for a free plugin. Thanks to this plugin my business and posts on social media look so much more exciting and professional.
