A temporary license is a time-restricted full license that lets you test every aspect of a product before buying it. You can request one at step 5 of the Get Pricing Information wizard.

As shared earlier, you can please post your cost and order related questions in Aspose.Purchase forums where you will definitely get respective information. In case of further technical assistance, you may please feel free to post here.

Please reply this question-

Question:- This is one time cost or annually cost?


Once you purchase the license, it will have validity of one year. You can have free upgrades to API version(s) until the expiry date of the license. In other words, you can upgrade to any/latest version of the API published before license subscription expiry. Please note that the license file can be used as long as you want (unless you are using it with API versions published before license expiry).

What will be the annual charges for the next year after purchasing the license? It will be same for every year or something else?

Please provide the steps to purchase the license.


We are moving your thread in Aspose.Purchase forum where you will be guided appropriately.


The licence is permanent and comes with the first year’s subscription. The subscription allows access to the latest releases and can be renewed annually, but it is optional. If you choose not to renew, and don’t use any version released after the subscription expiry date, the licence will continue to work as normal.

Renewals are priced at 50% of the then product price for those renewed within term, and 60% if they have been allowed to expire.

You can place an order online at Purchase Portal.

Kind regards,


[Aspose.Total] Product Family for JAVA
License Type:- Developer Small Business License


  1. Only one developer will be use it to develop the program for watermarking. Other developer who is involve in application will work on different program.

  3. After successfully testing deploy it on a single physical location to access the application.
  4. User will be on different location at all over world, they will access it through intranet, internet and VPN or any other as per current availability.

Question- This licence will cover all the above points or not? please specify any other about it, which will be needed.


The Developer Small Business licence does not cover that scenario. Instead you will need a Developer OEM licence for each developer in the team which uses the Aspose component. Please see Licensing FAQ - Purchase -

Kind regards,


Which point is not covered, please mention.


Your No 4. Please see License Types - Purchase - for full details.

Would you please try your scenario with Aspose.PDF for Java 18.7 as it is always recommended to use latest version. In case issue still persists, please let us know by sharing a sample application which is able to replicate the issue in any environment. We will test the scenario in our environment and address it accordingly.

Hello team,
I have used the following jar files to water marking-
1, aspose-pdf-18.5.jar
2. aspose-slides-16.6.0.jar
3. aspose-cells-16.10.0.jar
to put the confidential water marking but i am worried from output.

  1. In PDF file, no water marking has displayed
  2. In PPT, it is not giving any desired result.
  3. In excel, anybody can delete/change the watermarking applied from the source code.

Also, it’s taking too much time to execute it. Please provide me the correct jar files and source code for watermarking (pdf, excel, ppt, word and image).Excel.png (122.2 KB)
PDF.png (125.3 KB)
PPT.png (130.9 KB)


Thanks for the screenshots and details.

Regarding MS Excel watermark, you may lock the word art shape, see the following lines of code that you may add before saving the spreadsheet, it will work for your needs:
Sample code:

// Lock Shape Aspects
	wordart.setLockedProperty(ShapeLockType.SELECTION, true);
	wordart.setLockedProperty(ShapeLockType.SHAPE_TYPE, true);
	wordart.setLockedProperty(ShapeLockType.MOVE, true);
	wordart.setLockedProperty(ShapeLockType.RESIZE, true);
	wordart.setLockedProperty(ShapeLockType.TEXT, true);

Regarding your issues with PDF and PPT file formats, we will check and get back to you soon.


We have checked the shared screenshot of PDF document and code snippet used for watermarking it. We request you to please remove/comment following line of code which is stopping watermark text to be displayed in the document:


Setting the background property as true means the stamp would be rendered beneath the layer of original content and would not be visible. Also, please ensure to set license for each API separately in your application before using their features.

As shared earlier, please use latest version of the API i.e. Aspose.PDF for Java 18.7, as it contains more enhancements and improvements. In case you are still unable to achieve the desired results, please share your sample PDF document with us. We will test the scenario in our environment and address it accordingly.
